Software Creator and Technology Enjoyer

I want to change the world. Maybe I think too highly of my profession, but I believe developers have a unique ability to change the world with less effort than any other profession. Apps like Twitter, Facebook, Windows, and iTunes have changed our culture, our communication, our very lives. It's stuff like that that makes me proud to be a developer!

comment What is the best way to bring a new programmer up to speed on a project?
This is how our company ramps up new devs. It's by far the most efficient way we have found. Plus, our team is 100% distributed. We use a combination of skype voice calling, on each screen, and source control (checking in before switching coders). This works for 2 developers, definitely. We have also done it with 5... it felt more like a class, but it did the trick.
