As hackers and builders of various kinds, we all care about how we do create. We spend time improving our tools and our ability to use them. We obtain knowledge and are proud of how much we know.


The Secret of writing code is that it's not about writing code. Teams, not individuals, create the software we all use today. Those, who can type the fastest, commit the most code, know the latest tools, review all the pull requests don't make the best team.

Learn how writing code is similar to other team activities, including basketball. Take a journey with me through three parts: basketball rivalry, people > code and building teams at Vinted. Great teams don't just happen; they are intentionally formed.
