        "People in Silicon Valley are dicks. They perpetuate this idea that if you're smart enough, have an amazing vision, and keep pushing at it, then you'll end up with a great product. Take a look at startup success stories, though: a ton of them succeeded in spite of their original vision. A great product is closer to an accident. It's the byproduct of the environment you build at your company. This environment may actually be harder to build than the product itself, but you'll be left with a better everything by the end of it."

          GitHub consists of a bunch of employees who have worked at other companies in the past and despised it. Okay, maybe they weren't all terrible jobs, but a lot of us remain skeptical of most software development practices. We do things differently at GitHub. We don't have meetings, we don't have managers, we don't do traditional code review, and we aren't always in the same room, much less on the same continent. And we couldn't be happier about it. We ship code quickly, without a lot of red tape, and still maintain an incredibly high level of code quality. It's a great way to keep your developers happy, and we think it can work in your company, too.
