patterns & practices - A Team of Thieves

  • Comments 1

If you want a glimpse into our workspace and how we work at patterns & practices, watch the patterns & practices - A Team of Thieves video on Channel9.  Rory interviews Ed and Peter from our team. 

During the interview they bring up our previous team name, PAG.  PAG, at one point stood for Prescriptive Architecture Guidance, and then became Platform Architecture Guidance.  What I liked about our PAG days was that we got used as a noun and a verb:

  • We need guidance on that! ... can you "PAG it"?!!!
  • Sounds good ... "PAG it!"!!
  • We need a PAG on that! (meaning build a set of guidance)
