Chapter 59. Gifted Programmers > Electric Training

Electric Training

Keeping abreast of current developments in software is a challenge, but it is also one of the fun things about working in a fast-changing technical profession. It certainly is never boring. Attendance at an extra training seminar or a ticket to the next Embedded Systems Programming or Software Development Conference could be a cost-effective way to recognize hard work. Books and magazine subscriptions are another low-cost way to escalate the stakes.

Once a group has learned how to work together well, why break them up? One reward for high performance teamwork could be the option of staying together for the next project. More broadly, getting to pick your working partners might be an effective incentive for peak performance. In a related vein, a free choice from among the next projects to be started might be the payoff for doing well on the last one.
