by Jim McCarthy on Oct 09, 2013 | NOTICE: The next QCon is in San Francisco Nov 7-11, 2016. Join us!

Jim McCarthy discusses culture hacking, a distinct kind of culture engineering, expressing a particular hacker ethos, an ethos originating in the world of software hacking, promoting freedom, openness, and embodying rationality and design elegance.


While leading projects at Bell Laboratories, The Whitewater Group, and Microsoft Jim McCarthy saw there was a better way to build products by focusing on the team. He led the creation one of the great Microsoft teams, the Visual C++ team. Much of the software industry and IT benefitted from his ideas as articulated in his seminal book, Dynamics of Software Development from Microsoft Press.
