Socialism is often portrayed as pure evil by US media (hello Fox News), yet many socialist countries are ranked as some of the best countries in the world (Newsweek). So maybe it's not all bad? If you look at job listings for software developers, it seem like a lot of companies are looking for "programmer rock stars", "coding ninjas", etc. There is a romantic notion about the ultra productive independent super developer. This talk examines software development from a socialist perspective. Might we get better results and provide more value if we set aside our egos and work together?
