Re: [newtech-1] How is your coding team sitting down right now?

Just fyi...

In Japan....you are given the window seat if you're on you way out.  Seen as a no man's position due to gazing outward.

Best...feed them well, give them privacy, have mtgs where you spend 50% of the time talking on non-work related subjects like family.  And daily task report... a bit of Six Sigma.

The best is creating an atmosphere of trust and fellowship. 

This is the age of telecommuting and telepresence/omnipresent.  

We have people (developers) in India, E. Euo, Asia, Canada and US.  All working on the same project..daily.

So it doesn't matter.  You can place one in India, another in Russia, another at the Arctic and another at the Antarctic and it wouldn't matter.

Once you have that all important trust and common goal. 

Everything will fall into place.

The best way in 2007 is to have everyone facing inwards around a large conference table with a 
break-out room/phone call room where people can have privacy. backs to each other is just bad feng shui.

We've had major debates on what would be the best way to sit a team of 4-5 coders,
I'd like to hear from the community what's worked best for them.

In the past the best configuration to sit a team I've seen was achieved by sitting people
facing windows and next to each other, probably like 2-3 feet of separation, when something
needed to be discussed people just turned 180degrees and we had everyone looking at each
other.

Let us hear your best team-sitting-configuration
