Developers of iOS and OS X apps
Having also seen the success of other small groups of developers, our experience has reinforced our view that the best software is developed by small teams of highly intelligent, highly adept, highly adaptive, agile developers who are passionate about what they develop — aka Agile Monks. Much of this agile nature comes not just from reading iOS and Mac programming books but, rather, from a diverse, highly educated, liberal arts background, ranging from journalism and neuroscience to mathematics and computer science. Such as a martial artist achieves mastery by training every muscle of the body, an Agile Monk in our view achieves mastery by training every area of the brain by studying a diversity of subjects (we’re working on the body too, but we do, after all, sit in front of a computer most of the day!).
