Mythical Man Month…9 women should be able to do it in a month.

In a shout out every Computer Science sophomore’s favorite project management read, we’re about to commit the most fundamental sin a team under an oppressive deadline can…we’re adding ton of guys to the team!

We’ve got a whopping 8 people committed to building this startup over the next three weeks:

  1. Me
  2. Aaron
  3. Nathan
  4. Jeremy
  5. Chris
  6. Mr. Pink
  7. Mr. Brown
  8. Mr. Blonde

Note, the first 5 members of the team are all, “in-between” positions so code names aren’t necessary.  The other three have real jobs  they would prefer to not be “in-between” of, so they get cool pseudonyms.

In terms of roles, that’s:

  • 1 customer development guy
  • 5 engineers (1 of which is a psuedo-manager)
  • 2 designers (1 UX, 1 graphic)

By my calculations…8 guys can accomplish in 3 weeks, what it would take Aaron & I 3 months to do.

And no, I don’t see any flaws in that logic.
