Sarajevo Special Scrum.org Product Owner Training






Studies show that certain memories help us learn and remember more effectively. Combine a course with a team building exercise, an appraised movie, and you have something amazing - a training with lasting impact. 

This is exactly what we wanted to achieve with the first Bosnia Agile organised Scrum.org Product Owner training.

The PSPO (link) training was build around two events, the Sarajevo Film Festival  and a rafting team building exercise. It does not come as a surprise that this event was sold out 6 weeks ahead.

 
Between watching a great movie 'The Railway Man'…

Time Perene

Times perenes são times dedicados a partes de um sistema,  com uma vida longa na qual é possível os membros se identificarem e criarem um clima colaborativo. Ao invés de times serem formados para um projeto, com times perenes o projeto é criado para maximizar a sinergia entre um time e uma demanda. Com isso a demanda é atendida pelo time mais adequado, time este que já está em um elevado estado de colaboração e formação.

You suck at technical interviews – Response

A post titled You suck at technical interviews has been popping up on my twitter feed this week. It was written by the CTO of npm and makes some really good points on the difficulties around technical hiring. I agree with most of what was said, except for one or two key points – which I will outline below.

I do believe that a great many technical interviews in our industry are done poorly. Apart from having done maybe 100+ technical interviews in my career I have also been interviewed at least 30 times, so I can completely empathize…

Testador ágil 3.0

Testadores ágeis são muitas vezes conhecidos como analistas de qualidade (QAs), engenheiros de software em testes, engenheiros de testes, lideres de qualidade, entre outras varianças. Eu tenho trabalhado como um Agile QA por um tempo, em portugues podemos traduzir como analista de qualidade ágil. Eu gostaria de compartilhar meu ponto de vista sobre como um QA trabalha em um time ágil. Nesse artigo eu vou usar a terminologia QA para representar o testardor ágil.

A maioria das pessoas, mesmo em times ágeis, tratam QAs como sub-papéis ou um papel separado do time. Eu acredito que isso está totalmente fora de…

Why Commercial Contracts Matter In Agile Software Development

"We value customer collaboration over contract negotiation."-- The Agile Manifesto

Contracts for software development have historically included language that specifically defines the software being developed. This protects the buyer from paying for an asset that does not serve its business needs, the seller from requirements drift or expansion, and allows both parties to agree to duration and cost.  Traditional development contracts also stipulate the process by which the software is to be developed and tested, and how changes will be accommodated.  Since the way something is produced has direct bearing on the quality of what gets produced, specifying the…

Restoring a deleted note in Apple's notes app

I recently deleted a note on my Notes app on my apple laptop. As someone who is a paranoid keeper of backups, and usually commits all my work to a repository like git, I don’t worry much about accidental deletion. But Apple’s notes app doesn’t have any form of version control, and it’s all too easy to delete something by accident. I have a daily rsync backup and run time machine, but googling couldn’t uncover a simple way of getting the note back. So in case someone else needs to do this, here’s what I did.

Update

It’s almost a year since my last blog post. I’ve had a busy and interesting year, and wanted to take the time to talk about a few different things. One of the reasons I haven’t blogged as much as I wanted is that I’ve been working on several things that aren’t exactly public at the moment. Moving to Ecuador has also involved a whole bunch of work and lead to less time.

Computer and cloud

Some of my last blog posts had to do with me wanting to change what hardware and cloud providers I used. I went through a…
