Whilst this topic might not seem to be directly applicable for a bootstrapping forum I’m developing a product in this space (which I’ll share once its a bit further along the road). Are there any other forums that you think would be useful for me to ask this question in?
I’m interested in people’s experience as a contractor/consultant/developer joining a team for the first time:
- What information do you gather to help you get up to speed as quickly as possible?
- If you could easily obtain information about the team, the code base, the environment etc. what would it be and what would you use it for?
