Spread Knowledge with 1-Pagers – Agile & Scrum, Product Management, Facilitation, DevOps
Jerry Weinberg described the 10 Commandments of Egoless Programming in his classic “The Psychology of Computer Programming“. We copied the version on Jeff Atwood’s blog.
In Agile & Lean, Development, DevOps & SysAdmins
Awesome nuggets of insight… but I wish the details for #7 weren’t duplicated from #3.
*pullingHairInDespair* Damn you, copy paste…
[x] Fixed now.
Thank you Kyle for pointing it out!
I used this in a Retro today and we got a lot of great discussions about the commandments. And some good ToDos for the next Sprint!
Thank you Corinna!!
Nice to hear that it’s useful!
And great idea to use it in a retro. It’s now on my list of activities to add to Retr-O-Mat 🙂
Can you change 9. to not be gender specific?
Thanks for pointing that out!
In my own work I always thrive to be non-specific (or alternate pronouns). However this is not original work by me (or Roland). I’m quoting Jerry Weinberg and just added layout. I don’t feel comfortable changing his words even if I’m not comfortable with the gendered phrasing either. (Thinking back I’m pretty sure I minded that back when I designed the 1-pager, but I didn’t want to change a quote and I love the egoless approach.)
I’ll reach out to him on Twitter.
Have a great weekend,
Jerry Weinberg (or someone impersonating him on Twitter) agreed (https://twitter.com/JerryWeinberg/status/569241324173598722) so I’ll make the change as soon as I’ve got time 🙂
Which turned out to be right now 🙂
I see you made the gender neutral change, but #3 and #7 details look the same, and I see from a previous comment that you fixed it earlier.
You are right, of course. Guess my backup wasn’t of the last version :/ Hopefully everything’s alright now.
Thank you for taking the time to alert us to it!
Thanks for fixing it!
