Refactored #004: “Creature Comforts”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • The guys talk a lot about office ergonomics, and especially keyboards (like the Fantech and Moonlander), mice (like the MX Master).
  • Frank declares himself Ron Swanson.
  • The guys explain why they like to let developers choose their own equipment, and how they approach that.
  • Everyone agrees that training availability (like PluralSight, Udemy, and MSDN) are worth more than the cost of admission.
  • Frank lays down a great framework for evaluating your attrition on an annual basis - are your departures largely voluntary and regrettable?
  • The pick of the week is the Logitech MX Master with it’s sweet MagSpeed scroll wheel.
  • … and much more!
