Stories from the Mobile Workplace: An Emerging Narrative Ethnography
J. Hunt, P. Romero, J. Good
Abstract: This paper presents preliminary results from a narrativeethnographic field study of a small mobile software development company. Initial ethnographic findings are presented, and further narrative analysis is proposed in the areas of stories relating to programmer stereotyping, war stories, and humour. It is expected that the study will form the first case-study for a broader comparative investigation into how stories are used and told across software development methodologies.
