Only in Seattle (or Portland, San Francisco, or Vancouver) can I board a bus and actually sit down and see another person writing code. Not just any code either, but serious stuff. Utilizing js w/ memoization, closures, etc. Not just somebody smashing code into a computer, but someone writing something that would prospectively be performant and useful. Oh dear, what else do I see? Tests! Unit tests! Yes, not only someone writing code, but somebody that I’d hire to actually work with.
The northwest seriously kicks ass! Cheers!
