Why chocolate is essential to agile tech writing
My favourite principle in the Agile Manifesto is that you get good people, put them in a good environment and then trust them to do a good job.
A “good environment” — that’s where chocolate comes into it.
At the office we have cupboards full of the stuff. Undeterred by such abundance, the Technical Writing team also goes on regular “doc hot choc” outings. We usually go to our local Lindt Café. Sometimes we even allow one or two hangers on, like a developer who has written a Confluence plugin just for us.
“We have come to value chocolate over extensive verbal compliments.”
