At our sprint review meeting on Friday, we met two new team members.
“I took a pretty unusual path,” said one of my new colleagues. “Before this, I lived in Beijing. I know that moving to China is not the most common path into teaching game design to teenagers –”
My head snapped up and I looked around to see if this was an elaborate prank. I love my YD team, but I wouldn’t put it past Justin and/or James to liven up a sprint review by pranking me. Hey, new guy! Let’s see if Meg is paying attention in meetings by telling her you lived across town from her on the other side of the planet!
But, no, not a prank. My small tech startup in North Carolina has hired two China expats.
