I want to post the following question but I'm worried it will be closed as off topic:

Title: Great software development pictures

This design company I know absolutely nothing about has on their website a beautiful picture of people actively engaged in the design process. I'm interested in collecting similar pictures which relate to the software development process and software development places. What great pictures related to software development have you seen?

For example, FogCreek has this picture on their site:

enter image description here


What if I changed the question to relate only to software development places - pictures of where software development happens?

    It... is sorta off-topic. Also, you don't want to see what it looks like when I'm working, and I'd have to force you to if you asked that.

    That guy's not a programmer. I smell a modeling agency. Who eats bananas while programming with one hand? Joel's Wasabi would crash, or something. Commented Jun 29, 2011 at 19:14

    FogCreek is a front for a banana modelling agency?!

  • First all the pictures of Joel's office are real! It means that the developer in the picture works there! And the environment there is very pleasant!

  • Sure. And Wasabi is a Japanese condiment. Commented Jun 29, 2011 at 20:03
  • @Robert Harvey What does that means?

  • It's a failed attempt at sarcasm. See here: joelonsoftware.com/items/2006/09/01b.html Commented Jun 29, 2011 at 20:06
  • Even if you were to collect such pictures what would you do with them? You can't use them publicly as they're copyright the photographer or the company. Commented Jun 30, 2011 at 9:52

No, that would not be on-topic. Or, more precisely, it would not be constructive.

For one, it's a question where every answer is equally valid. For another, it's kind of a "getting to know you" question.

Both of those are explicitly discouraged in the FAQ.
