Yegge on Google

Yegge's description of Google's internal process is mandatory reading for anybody who gets paid to do anything that remotely resmbles software development. It's that good.

Greg Yardley summarizes their process like so:

  • infrequent meetings;
  • no project management cruft;
  • no management directives;
  • the ability to switch projects at will;
  • an utter lack of date-driven releases;
  • motivation created through incentives.
