And learn the fundamentals!
Looking at the iTune page for Season 5 and "The final season" What seems to be defined as the season pass includes 8 episodes plus the "making of" (which in my mind is fodder) to justify the cost of the so called season.
It is kind of FUBU
One great way is to promote innovation in a company. As some have noted, some people have families to think about outside of work that hacking on something new outside the office is not always a priority. In the office however you can encourage people to try something new by allowing a certain percentage of innovation time. Then once every 12-14 weeks allow debs to focus on their in ovation projects awarding the winning project.
Devs trying something new
New skills being bred
New ideas for your workplace
Possibly new productivity tools
A great environment to work in
People encouraged to work as a team
There is a lot of tech out there now and nurturing skills is very important especially if someone needs to decide if they want to stay employed.
Hmmm.. maybe my sarcasm wasn't as apparent as I expected...
I'd still feel stupid holding the thing up to my ear...
What they are not doing is developing enterprise software!
It's not a question of whether you trust they are working or not, the tools still only allow limited communication. Getting a team to spike on something, IMO, requires them to be interactive at a more interpersonal level than using FaceTime or Skype.
Most companies get more team value from having the team co-located - especially with Agile practices. Having to work out "Where is ?" is a bitch when you are supposed to be getting a job done as a team (especially with Continuous Delivery).
I encourage my team to be in the office because we don't have just one person working on a feature or pumping out quick fixes all the time and when something goes wrong we all need to get on the job of fixing ASAP.
What? you're not allowed to be a developer if you're gay? Seriously!
It's just not the interest of living in the city, companies are paying the salaries to live in the city, relocating people from anywhere in America to live in SF, if anything companies want you to be in SF.
The companies know having the staff co-located and being close to the action is going to be more productive than coordinating a team across the web.
1) Apple culture heavily weighted towards having latest shiny object
Well I'm not sure it's just the Apple culture. I for one like my shiny new objects whether they be Apple, Nintendo, Microsoft or.... hmmm... nope thats it.
> television... if it keeps the show going,
> rules were made to be broken.
Well they easily broke that rule with the Master time and time again.... And there was nothing said about what point in her life the Rani had reached.
Then there is the so called time war that apparently wiped out all the timelords, yadi yadi yada.
Hey i like the new series, not too crazy about the breaking rules but if it keeps it alive for now then I'm in as well.
Besides there are alot of spin offs out there they can invest in as well, maybe the Faction Paradox war can breach our space once more?
