Axiom #1
coders spend most of their time coding
@deadroxy
Therefore ∴
respect their boundaries and let them code
@deadroxy
Axiom #2
coders leave their caves to meet other coders
Hackathons & Startup Competitions
Learning Environments

Axiom #3

@deadroxy
Therefore ∴
do not leave your coders unattended
