What Developers Want

Rob Walling has posted an article, Nine Things Developers Want More Than Money, that managers should read, if they want to understand what makes most developers tick. Rob draws upon Frederick Herzberg's Two Factor Theory.

Just over 1 year ago I left a job at an engineering company in Perth (with its head office in Canada). In the space of just 10 months, before and after I left, my department had a turn over of its entire complement of staff. I mention this, because all of the problems and complaints voiced by the developers are discussed in this post. [This one's for you Bernie!] On the positive side, everyone that left found better jobs.
