So my colleague (and boss) has been inviting programmers from other companies to just come in and observe/pair with us for a day. We always learn something, and the "tourist" does too. It's exhilarating to hear about the things they like, and motivating to fix the problems they find. We call these visits Industrial Tourism
. Anyone in the Philly area want to host or visit an Industrial Tourist company? Respond to this thread and maybe we can start touring!
