100% of software engineers don’t like Justin Bieber

I follow Elon Musk, SpaceX, Tesla, and Solar City as a hobby. Gives me something to do when I get bored and want to relax. Reading this article https://lwn.net/Articles/540368/ actually made me laugh out loud and put a smile on my face:

When the build fails, it should “fail loudly” with a “monitor that starts flashing red” and email to everyone on the team. When that happens, you should “respond immediately” to fix the problem. In his team, they have a full-size Justin Bieber cutout that gets placed facing the team member who broke the build. They found that “100% of software engineers don’t like Justin Bieber”, and will work quickly to fix the build problem.
