Guiding thoughts:
  • An individual could participate in many teams
  • Yes, there need to be some separation of concern when working with larger changes
  • No, not all things end up as software
  • Configure if the urge is there
  • Consensus is a good state but may not always be reached
  • Think different, think for your selves
