Herein lies the values we, as Happiness Driven Developers (HDD), hold to be true. Because who doesn't want to be happy?
As a happiness driven developer...
- We value languages that are optimized for developers over the computer - We value agile development over waterfall development - We value open-source frameworks and tools over tools controlled by a single organization - We value strong test coverage for our code for both maintainability and documentation over untested codebases - We value curiosity and exploration over adherence to standard - We value maintainable code, emphasizing clarity over cleverness - We value openness, sharing, and collaboration over credentials and barriers - We value an environment conducive to all levels of experience, over exclusivity and elitism - We value respect, understanding, and tolerance towards all in my community, over pure meritocracy - We value and welcome new ideas and new ways of solving problems over "how we've always done things"
