Are happy programmers dangerous?
Even more interesting was the questions after the seminar. Lot’s of people from different tech companies in Linköping. Someone said that Scrum kept the programmers happy which would produce better code. That’s probably true. Here comes the fun part - another person in the audience were worried that happy programmers would code things they thought were fun instead of the things they were supposed to do.
Hmm.. yeah, right. That’s the way it works. Or maybe not! I’d say that the risk is much bigger that bored programmers spend their time working at things they shouldn’t do.
I would really like to know where this person works, so I can avoid working there.
