    • Fun policies

      The lead engineer just created a new policy:

      Whoever checks in a file (specifically a project or solution file) that breaks the build must display Windows Game Programming for Dummies in a prominent place in his cube for a week. :)

      I'm curious if anyone else has similar policies where they work.

    • It's funny, even though you get a little public humiliation for breaking the build, it's actually a morale booster. We all got a good laugh when the first victim was given the book of shame. He's a good sport and laughed at it too. In a small group of 8 programmers working hard on two games, tempers can flare. This adds a bit of levity to the office.
