The Software Craftsman 9 & 10 Week 12

The first section of the reading talks about the hiring process and what you should and should not do. If you already have a team of unorganized developers, bringing in another one will not help your situtation only make it worse. There should be little to no job description, it should be vague as it attracks more abstract minds. You want to hire someone that does not need constant direction and can learn things on their own. You should be hiring developers that are passionate about what they do.

The second part of the reading goes over the interview process. When in an interview make sure you ask a lot of questions about the company and get to know their process and how they treat developers. If you are a software craftsman you should not just be looking for good pay and cool projects, you should be looking at what will make you a better developer.
