Thanks to Devoxx Poland (http://devoxx.pl/) we've invited special guest to our June meeting - Ted Neward (http://www.tedneward.com/).
I've asked Ted about the topic, and given the audience, he suggested:
"Let’s be agile about it -- put it to the group, take a vote about a week before the conference, and let me know the results. I’m good for any of the four options."
So in voting you've chosen:
Managers are from Mars, Developers are from Venus
You're a manager. You've been hired to run a small (or large) development team, and for the life of you, you can't understand these people. Every time you try to motivate them, they balk and resist. You try to hire them, you can't figure out what they want and they walk away. Then, without any sort of action on your part, suddenly they put in 16-hour days, and they pull off some amazing work, but when you try to ask them to do it again for a critical update, they get angry and quit. What the heck? Where did these bizarre alien creatures come from, and how in the world are you supposed to work with them?
