Do offices like these exist in Atlanta?

Most developers here in the US appear to be accustomed to gray cubicles and if you’re out of luck you even have to survive without daylight. I wonder whether means you have to take vitamin D pills daily. Joel on Software seems to have a more progressive opinion about developer office space. It is a NICE office. I was actually lucky enough to have my own office while working at the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts, which was nice.

Is Joel’s philosophy an anomaly in the American software development world? Do offices like his exist in Atlanta? I guess you can always abandon coding and just become a VP to get that fancy corner office…

Hey Gunnar,
I live in ATL but I telecommute from my home office. I have seen the offices of CoxNet and they have a nice layout from the little I've seen. Are gray cubicles all you've seen in ATL so far?

I'm so jealous.



My office has a prison-yard vibe to it sometimes. I took some hand weights in to could pump iron whenever my head started feeling foggy, and it really looks like a prison yard now, with guys walking around doing curls.
