As I briefly mentioned before one of my companies (realis communities
) moved to Hamburg and we got a nice new office directly at the Alster sea in the city.
Here are a few pictures to give you an impression. We work here for a few weeks now and are now setteled in.
This is my desk, as you can see, there are a "few" monitors there (and all of them quite big, ranging from 24 to 19 inch). I mainly look at the big 24" in the middle, but also use the other two. On the left side is my laptop, it is not always there, but it is useful from time to time if I need another PC for testing something. But even with this large space (I control everything with 1 keyboard and mouse via the program Synergy
), I still have so many overlapping windows. After reading this article (Joining The Prestigious Three Monitor Club) from Jeff Atwood at CodingHorror.com
I thought the more space you have the less overlapping windows you should have. But it is more like the more space you have, the more programs you have opened up :) I still use Switcher
quite a lot to find the program windows again.
Ok, back to the office, this is one of the other rooms where most of my colleagues sit, currently most of them are away shooting some new video for meinSport TV
. They are all nice guys, but you know, no programmers, do I have to say more?
Then there is finally the view out of the window, its still winter, but all that water from the Alster is comforting.
Next I will shoot some photos of my setup at home (more PCs, less monitors, but big ones ^^). I hope this does not bore you.
