I was interested by what I think I read in the excerpt from the book. Did you go to all sorts of different places and find the same code dynamics everywhere, or the same patterns and anti‑patterns used everywhere? And was there any observer bias, that you are forcing your operators into categories? If you did coderetreat for ten years, did you notice a change over those ten years?
