The last episode, I said I wasn't sure there was such a thing as culture, but that's not the case. Every place I've worked has been a bit different, and often those differences had huge impacts on the software we built.
The team where people roll their eyes at UX feedback will not have as simple of a product as a team where the user experience is highly valued.
If software performance isn't valued, the end result won't be performant.
Today, I found an expert on observing developer cultures. Hansen Hsu worked on the AppKit team at Apple, and he's here to talk about this mushy concept called culture. How does it manifest? How does it affect what people build? And how can it lead to beautiful software?
