This is in response to a post by my good buddy joeyDotNet
(found here). Joey has an obvious but insightful post about
how a software craftsman should bring their own tools with them to make them
more productive. In his post he specially
talks about carrying his own keyboard form place to place (even taking it home every
night -- Buy another one for home will you.
If you need me to, I can paypal you the cash :) ).
Although I don’t carry my keyboard to and from work, I do
bring my own keyboard and mouse (gotta have the TrackMan
mouse) to every job I have. I even had a
buddy that would carry his own monitor back and forth to work for a while
because his company did not provide him with a quality monitor at work.
In all seriousness, joey does make a good point, and that is
that all good software
craftsman should provide their own tools.
You would never catch a good carpenter on a job site without their
tools. There is a reason. You are more productive with tools in which
you are comfortable.
Anyway, nice post joey, keep them coming.
Till next time,
P.S. Glad to see you posting again, even if it is about Ruby
and what not J
