Every Wednesday we have Taco Twednesday, in which we all leave the office to eat at and review various taco establishments. (We're also logging these reviews, taking steps towards the world's first big taco data powerhouse.) I also regularly invite everybody over to my house to make homebrew beer. (Ask about our not-quite-award-winning ale, Electric Brewgaloo.) Finally, we devote one afternoon a month to Mandatory Fun Day, where one rotating employee plans an afternoon of fun for the rest of the company.What's the point of all this camaraderie? Sure, it's fun to get out of the office, it's great for retention, and it helps with recruiting. We're doing something more important than all of that though when we're having fun, though. We're doing something that every software organization needs help with: we're learning to listen to each other.
