Not What, But Who

I've been moving from project to project for quite some time now. What I've realized is that for most professional gigs, it's not what you're doing that's important as much as who you're doing it with.

I recall a time when my teammates called me Bobby Tables for an entire 2-week iteration. Bobby Tables is developer humor.

Like many of the teams I have been fortunate to work with, everyone was productive but more importantly, our days were humor-filled.

So whenever I piss and moan about this technology stack or that technology stack <cough>Silverlight</cough>, I have to remind myself...
It's the people, dummy
