  3. www.swingdev.io Be Curious. Don’t be afraid to use your own solution if you believe in it, even if it’s not included in “best practices”.
  4. www.swingdev.io Be Curious. Don’t assume you are less brilliant than authors of commercial or open-source software. You are not. You can help the community buy finding and fixing bugs.
  5. www.swingdev.io Be Curious. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new technologies, frameworks or solutions, even if everything will go to waste later.
  6. www.swingdev.io Be Curious. Don’t assume you understand client’s business better than they do. Dig deeper, ask questions and don’t rely on your intuition. If you still believe you are right, you probably are.
  7. www.swingdev.io Be Curious. Don’t do things some way “because this is how it’s done”. Reason by first principles. (See this video of Elon Musk taking about this)

  9. www.swingdev.io Help Others Never ever in any situation use offensive words towards anybody, especially your teammates.

  11. www.swingdev.io Help Others Criticism is very often not helpful! (Read HBR piece on this)
  12. www.swingdev.io Help Others Always try to influence others by positive behaviour, not by criticising their approach. ! Lead by example, if needed put extra effort to fix your teammate’s mistake.
  13. www.swingdev.io Help Others You are not your code! Never call someone “stupid” because of code or other work products he committed. Try to explain how to do things better.
  14. www.swingdev.io Build Relationships and Trust Be trustworthy. Don’t be too quick with promises. Deliver on things and dates you agreed upon.
  15. www.swingdev.io Build Relationships and Trust Treat everybody with respect. Try to understand different points of view.

  17. www.swingdev.io Love What You Do We all enjoy the journey, not only the end goal.
  18. www.swingdev.io We value quality over quantity. Thus we are not and we do not aim to be “big” company. We grow organically making sure that our culture and quality standards are maintained. This might mean that sometimes our clients need to wait longer, but we make sure that the end result is worth it.
  19. www.swingdev.io We devote time to do things right and repay technical debt. This the cornerstone of our passion for quality.
  20. www.swingdev.io We devote time to do things right and repay technical debt. Striving for best quality makes sense as long as it’s aligned with client’s interests. If time-to-market is more important we align our goals with client’s.
  21. www.swingdev.io We devote time to do things right and repay technical debt. We never compromise on quality when building own products.

  23. www.swingdev.io There are no non-technical idiot managers. We make sure that no one without proper technical knowledge will not make decisions regarding development, especially schedule and scope.
