Submission + - Swapping Developers to Beat the Recession (chicagotribune.com)

Cory Foy writes: "There are many unique ways to beat the recession — cutting staff, cutting perks, etc. But what about taking one of your most senior developers and sending them — to your competitor? And getting one of their senior people in return? That's exactly what the companies 8th Light and Obtiva out of Chicago did a couple of weeks ago. They were encouraged by Corey Haines, who after getting laid off himself, set out on a pair programming tour around the country for room and board. The whole thing was featured in the Chicago Tribune over the weekend, and is a great way to show how innovation can truly happen."
