Some environments are more fast paced that others; some require the ability to be able to react quickly. Case in point: I was up in the middle of the night with allergies - sneezing and what not. As I didn't want to disturb my wife, I went to the living room.

My cell phone received a text message: a high priority ticket had been logged from work for a system - no data was being shown. Normally, tickets are medium priority unless manually elevated. So, I looked at the ticket, opened my laptop and fixed the issue.

I wasn't the team member on call, but I saw the issue and decided to react. As a team, if the issue is not resolved in a timely manner, we all get hit with a performance failure.

So.. this was 'fast paced', but, generally, it's an easy going environment.

Having said that, if you are looking, what field/general area and what region?

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
