Git Culture at W-JAX 2012

The software world is one that loves to claim a wiliness to constantly innovate. In languages, algorithms, and practices, we often follow through on that mantra. But what about innovation in the operation of the business as a whole? What if there were no managers? What if everyone selected what they wanted to work on? What if you "optimized for happiness?" "Chaos!" you say. But it isn't. It is a healthy, profitable, and growing business that many developers are clamoring to work for: GitHub. A quick dissection of how this business operates shows both business and social hacks that can be extracted and applied, piecewise, to your own place of employment.
