Remember Stack Overflow Valued Associate #00002? Me neither. Until I saw these photographs of his developer lair, that is:
Never let it be said that I don't practice what I preach -- or rather, that I don't encourage my teammates to build themselves a proper developer lair!
Two 30" monitors and One 21" monitor for entry into the prestigious triple monitor club
A Herman Miller Mirra -- someone invested in a quality programming chair
Logitech G9 -- an excellent mouse
high end custom built developer rig (8GB, quad core, velociraptor, two video cards, etc)
And of course a fast internet connection. All part of the programmer's Bill of Rights!
Now, Jarrod Dixon and I have a bit of history, so there are a few other .. "objects" .. visible:
Indiana Jones Fertility Idol Bank (visible in previous photo, above monitor)
Sad first generation iPhone, soon to be replaced with an awesome new iPhone 3GS.
It's hard to decide which Val Kilmer role is our favorite -- Iceman, Chris Knight, Doc Holliday, Nick Rivers..
Anyway, just a bit of fun for the weekend, and maybe a little food for thought on the care and feeding of software developers.
