Culture & Mission

Note bene: This presentation was published in 2011 by Zach Holman. According to Zach's site, "GitHub no longer works like this, electing instead to institute a hierarchical, manager-driven, top-down, geocentric organization." We included Zach's presentation on the site anyways for inspiration of how a how good technical companies can be run when starting out.
