Yo Ho Ho! A Developer's Life For Me

A recent issue of Microsoft's Visual Studio Magazine included this fold out map for the board game, "A Developer's Life for Me". The mechanics of the game (roll and move) are less important than the clever illustrations.

Yo Ho Ho! Developing code on the high seas is a dangerous adventure...

Just when you think you have an interesting project, with a reasonable timetable, you run into the "Island of Boss's Folly"

Or even worse... a dreaded "Meeting With Suits"!

The Microsoft Visual Studio system is a suite of development tools for creating console and GUI applications along with Windows Forms applications, web sites, web applications, and web services.

You can download and print your own copy of the game here.

Thanks to Hunter for sending this map to me.
