Introducing the Coding Solo Cowboy Hat of Shame


09 Feb, 2011


While at Agile Open Northwest, someone mentioned the best idea I have ever heard. Their team made a rule that if you were going to code by yourself with out a pairing partner you had to raise your hand and announce “I’m coding alone!” and don the Cowboy Hat of Shame.

This was such a great idea, my team decided to implement our own and here it is. The tiara really makes it work.
