Und immer wieder: Simplicity

Eine Person auf Hacker News:

For the last 12 years, I’ve worked with 40+ different software teams (helping with UI/UX design]). From small scrappy startups to fortune 500.
The teams that were great to work with and ended up having the biggest wins, were always small teams with a great cultural balance. They always strived for the simplest solutions.

You could trace this balance of engineers in all of the cases back to GREAT hiring by the CEO.

The teams that were the least productive and just burnt through VC money were the ones that had a handful of toxic engineers at their core. Finding complex and seemingly clever (over engineered) ‘solutions’ seemed to be their goal in every meeting.

A way to find out if your team belongs to the second group, measure the amount of jargon that’s being used in meetings.
