Episode 10: Peopleware, Part II (Live at RailsConf!)

This episode, we concluded our discussion of Peopleware, by Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister. Following some personal reflections on the book, especially about how it relates to goal-setting and other processes, we spoke about:

  • 10:09 Team culture/identity vs. company coherence
  • 21:25 How work culture alienates people unnecessarily… and how to do better!
  • 35:07 Directing team culture as a manager
  • 44:55 What’s the ideal office environment? When is remote work awesome vs. problematic?
  • 53:53 Aligning motivations of managers and developers

We’d love to hear your thoughts about the book as well. Join us on Slack and share with other Dev Empaths!
