Do you want a happier, more empowered team with an attitude of ownership and a focus on productivity? I thought so. We get the party started right at Cheezburger by having our new developers write and commit code to our production software on Day One. (Yes, you heard that right…we throw a newbie into the fire before they even have time to know what hit them!) Yet, given that there are only eight hours on the first day that means there are a few puzzle pieces you need to have in place to prevent this from being a complete disaster. I will show you how we do this, so you can do it too!
