Edmond Lau is a Quora Engineer who wrote a long Quora answer about what makes for a good engineering culture.
He talks about the things he learned at Google, Ooyala, and Quora.
Here's his full answer and here's my tl;dr :
Code review rigorously.
Treat co-workers respectfully.
Share ownership of code.
Spend time to automate testing.
Give 20% time.
Encourage learning and continuous improvement.
- "Hire the best."
Thought provoking. Thank you @ericries for tweeting this!
I like how #2 is "automate ALL the things!" and #7 is "automate the testing!"
Automation is important, that's why he says it twice.
It's like the first and second rules of Fight Club.
