  1. Hey guys  —  So .. turns out that 1/2 of the team I work with lied to get their jobs.  Some are “Developers” others are in “Marketing”.   I’d say that both are a problem as the devs keep taking forever to “learn” (i.e. Google) the answer/fix and the Marketing team is just copying other websites for ideas and strategy. Upper management has no idea. Options?  -Colby R.
  2. Any ideas or options on how to get other developers to collaborate in a productive manner?  What I mean by this is that many of the other developers I work with are very non social/socially awkward. Additionally some of them don’t like each other very much.  It’s tense to say the least. Or lead developer isn’t aware of this as she isn’t a part of the daily operations.  -Brian
