build yourself a bridge and get over it Valve: o melhor lugar para se trabalhar Valve é uma desenvolvedora de jogos. Portal 2 é coisa deles, assim como Half-Life e Left 4 Dead. E, claro, o Steam também. Só por isso você já deve estar desejando trabalhar lá, né? Pois saiba que melhora muito: uns meses atrás vazou o manual para novos funcionários da Valve, praticamente um manifesto sobre a metodologia profissional que eles adotaram por lá. Começa pelo prefácio, onde eles avisam que o manual foi feito de maneira colaborativa e, caso tenha vivenciado algo que acha que pode ajudar novos funcionários, é só falar, tá em casa. Na Valve ninguém vai te direcionar para um projeto. How does Valve decide what to work on? O lance é que eles são uma empresa de entretenimento e contratam as pessoas mais criativas que conhecem. Para Valve, hora extra é sinônimo de falta de comunicação ou planejamento, um sinal de que algo deve ser corrigido. Por lá, ninguém foi demitido por tentar.

Gamestorming The Zurich Entrepreneur Meetup Group (Zürich Not only is Zurich one of the best places in the world to live, but it's also a great place to start a business. With its top-tier educational institutions, robust infrastructure, and business friendly administration, in many ways Zurich is the ideal place to launch a startup. There is a wealth of creative energy and entrepreneurial spirit in this area, but this sometimes gets lost in the perception that Zurich is simply a "banking town". Also, while there has long been an entrepreneurial scene here, it is somewhat of an exclusive club, and it can be particularly intimidating to non-locals, or aspiring entrepreneurs who want to learn the ropes before jumping in completely. We can change that! So whether you are a seasoned entrepreneur, a student who is considering what to do next, or just someone who wants to take the path less traveled, come join us! We normally meet in the evening of the third Wednesday of each month. We hope to see you at the next meetup!
