The White House Gives Up on Making Coders Dress Like Adults

Scenes from the 2008 Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama

Its Friday!! (insert beer)…and in my usual good mood, I had to share this with you. I came across this article on wired.com and the heading made me laugh. This fellow single-handedly saved healthcare.gov and was recently recruited by the white house as their chief Digital Officer. Interestingly, the comments at the end of the article generated into a philosophy about who really gets the job done and their appearance. Note the guy’s crumpled shirt in the video (i expected a ketchup stain somewhere). Again, to put things in perspective, this guy led the team that salvaged the disastrous heathcare.gov.

As a side note, the video is used as a recruiting tool to lure Engineers to work for the Government.
