  • Start with the User
  • Listen to Problems, not Solutions
  • Pay Attention to Data
  • Live Out Loud
  • Foster Diversity
  • Experiment Often, Fail Fast
  • Let Engineers Find their Passion
  • Chaos Breeds Creativity

2. Share whatever you can
3. You're brilliant, we're hiring
4. A license to pursue dreams
5. Innovation, not instant perfection
6. Don't politic, use Data

7. Creativity loves constraint
8. Users not Money

9. Don't kill projects morph them
