Interview with Dominic Bortolussi, Managing Partner at TWG.

After a couple of years being a TWG's follower, this company has inspired me in many ways. From its slogan "Good people. Great Work." to its culture of collaboration and social presence, every aspect of TWG seems to be thought with the objective of being the best place to learn, work and grow at.

TWG is a software development company that design and engineer web and mobile products for growing startups and national brands, and partner with promising Startups through its Startup  Accelarator Program.

Dominic Bortolussi, Founder & Managing Partner, has accepted to answer a few questions for me after I told him about our intentions of creating an active social community of developers here in Cuba.

More than ten years of hard work, perseverance and team working have placed TWG in the center of technology community in Toronto. Its team has been upgraded to more than 50 guys whose skills vary from coders and designers to thinkers and problem solvers. TWG is no longer a Startup, but they were once and their experiences may light our path or just give us valuable inspiration. 

Here are his answers. Thanks Dom once again.

Agile web development like teen sex?

From: TWG's Blog
According to Daniel Markham, these are the reasons why Agile Project Management is like teenage sex:
  • You always exaggerate how much of it you’re getting;
  • Everybody else seems to be having more than you;
  • When somebody tells you about their experiences, you’re quick to point out that they’re not doing it right;
  • You spend a lot of time reading and thinking about it;
  • It’s very awkward trying to make happen;
  • You can’t wait until you finally get the real deal;
  • Nobody is really doing that much of it anyway.
