This series started as a few posts on our internal blog and eventually became my DevCon 2017 session, What Works – Increasing Code Quality While Staying Lean. I started these when we were bringing on a new employee and felt the need to document some of the reasons we were successful. With so much interest in the DevCon session, we’re now making the original posts public: this will be the first of four. These tactics have made a big difference for SeedCode and I hope you find them useful. – John Sindelar
Introduction: Increasing Code Quality While Staying Lean
The strategies we’ll be talking about in this series apply to projects of every size. In addition to building products like DayBack, SeedCode does a ton of custom work: from 3-hour mods to help someone implement a cool feature, to multi-year, 10,000-hour projects. We use the same techniques for projects of both scales. And that’s part of the secret: to run the big ones like a series of very small ones.
