A couple of years ago, I had the pleasure of working with this guy.
One thing he introduced me to was the “Build Breaker” award.
The concept here is simple, if you check breaking code into source
control, you get the award (until someone else gets it). It’s a
pretty good way to keep people from checking in bad code. Yeah,
it’s a litte mean too, but if you have a good, close team, it can be all in good fun.
So I have proudly carried the Build Breaker tradition to the
Port. But, instead of a dunce cap with Homer Simpson’s face on it
or anything like that, our award looks like this:
It’s more of a trophy, really… to put atop your monitor.
Only the developers know what it really means (diabolical laughter)…
