Secret ingredients to quality software


Do you have a consistent naming convention for each machine?

When we configure networks we give all computers in the company a naming theme like:

  • Buildings
  • Cars
  • Countries
  • Colours
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables, etc

At SSW we have adopted the animal kingdom.

While you are attaching the label, it is also a good idea to affix a business card to the underside of the computer. This way if you lose your machine, anyone who finds it can easily contact you.
