Refactored #048: “Get Better at Training”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • The guys reminisce about the days of yore after news hits of a coming announcement from WinAmp:
    • Thumb drives full of installers
    • Napster/BitTorrent in college dorms
    • How Windows has gotten better and worse over time
  • Frank has a point to make about Technology teams “versus” Sales & Marketing teams.
    • Is it a job function thing?
    • A personality/temperament thing?
    • Or maybe just we’re awesome and they’re dumb? Yeah. It’s gotta be this one. :trollface:
  • Chris argues you’ve really got to optimize your onboarding, training, and growth processes.
  • Poor Matt Doran. This bloke flies transcontinental to interview and promote Adele’s new album, 30, only to get turned around at the proverbial door. Da hell does this have to do with software? Frank expounds.
  • Being professional and being a decent human are not mutually exclusive. Full stop.
  • … and much more!
