The 501 Developer Manifesto

We are software developers who take pride in our work but choose not to be wholly defined by it. As such, we are proud to say that we value:

  • Our families over the commercial goals of business owners
  • Free time over free snacks
  • Living our lives over maintaining our personal brands
  • Sustainable pace over muscle-man heroics
  • Our personal creative projects over commercial products the world doesn’t need
  • Having money for stuff over getting free swag and work overtime
  • Playing fußball in the pub with our friends over playing fußball in the office with our team leader
  • Not being a d*ck over being a rockstar
