A very interesting chat with Sydney based Adam Cogan on .Net Rocks.
The focus is on using rules (I’d prefer to call them guidelines) in your software development company. Many of the rules are project management and marketing based, aswell as Coding and Naming convention standards, so this is a great resource for any software house (ie you don’t have to be .Net based necessarily).
The entire DNR show is a great listen, and there are some especially interesting snippets eg how Adam takes his entire team away once a year, and focuses on health. Also his thoughts on including the ability to let clients run Unit tests in your products are great – in fact Adam’s thoughts on unit tests (around the 52 minute mark) are some of the most sensible I have heard in a long time.
