Team Communication Through Code
Over the past year, Paperless Post has grown tremendously in terms of goals, accomplishments, and new employees. We’ve come to find that with that rapid expansion are some growing pains that necessitated us to rethink and retool how we communicated within our individual teams as well as across teams. But the question becomes, how can we communicate our core beliefs and impart our knowledge of the code base to new team members as quickly and seamlessly as possible without losing the camaraderie and gained experience of a smaller start up? This talk will discuss some of the techniques and tools we use to communicate within and among our teams as well as examine ways to improve ourselves further.
