Recently, Mike Swift published an interesting article in The Mercury News, “Ship code or ship out: Bootcamp for new Facebook engineers.”
The article provided a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at Facebook’s boot camp for new engineers. I loved reading about the slogans that Facebook reinforces within its team. As Swift notes, “Facebook recruits are exposed to a series of slogans that are intended to encapsulate the company’s values.”
Swift’s article lists the following Facebook slogans:
Move Fast and Break Things
What Would You Do If You Weren’t Afraid?
The Foolish Wait
Our Work Is Never Over
We Hack Therefore We Are
Are You Fearless?
Done Is Better Than Perfect
Code Wins Arguments
Slogans for Virtual Events
It occurred to me that we should develop slogans regarding what virtual event experiences should aspire to. So fresh off reading Swift’s article, I went to Twitter to ask. After all, for soliciting slogans, what better a place than one that deals in 140 characters or less?
And the Twittersphere spoke:
“Think big and be creative!” — @EmilieBarta
“Where less is more” — @scottlum
“Less steps, less windows, less mess = less stress!” — @EmilieBarta
“DIY-Do It Yourself” — @virtualpioneer
“Be Effective. There’s too much doing too little reasoning” — @webcaston
“Connect everywhere, anytime with everyone” — @mike_arias
“Content Engagement” — @firstlegion
“Make Every Seat The Front Row” — @bXbOnline
And here are my slogans:
Minimize Load Times
Simple Always Wins
Connect People to People
Connect People to the Right Content
Make Them Want to Come Back
Delight and Overdeliver
Let’s Hear From You
There’s got to be plenty of great slogans out there. Use the Comments section below to leave your slogan. Thanks!
