One of the best posts I have seen in a while. Cory Fox on what matters more, people or process:

It’s a good question. I saw good code at places with crappy practices. And I saw crappy code at places with good practices.

But in almost all of the places, I saw code that was on par with the motivation of the teams in place. In other words, teams that were excited about what they were doing, and kept up with trends, etc, often had code they were proud of. Teams that liked their job, but basically were just there had code that worked and had issues, but they didn’t mind. And teams that were just in a crappy place had code that was crappy.
