Lots of our people have lots of opinions. Here are just a few of them

Conway's Observation

Melvin Conway doesn’t intend his observation on dev teams (and the applications/services they build) to be advice or a call to action. Instead he thinks of it as an observation. In his own write-up (that is very much worth reading), he notes that Conway’s “Law” wasn’t even his coin. It has really irritated me that software development organizations teams are choosing to shard their development because they think it is advice, instead of finding ways to not do so shard dev teams.

Para lembrar e ter consciência

Máscaras de oxigênio é a metáfora que uso para indicar que primeiro eu, depois os outros. Não é egoísmo. É cuidado. Para estar bem e ajudar os outros, primeiro eu, depois os outros. Assim estarei, quando estiver, dedicado em ajudar/apoiar outras pessoas. O que mais tenho pra praticar e ter consciência nos próximos meses? Coragem … Continue a ler Para lembrar e ter consciência

How to run a Futurespective

Futurespectives, like Retrospectives, look back at the past… from the future! I find them very useful when there isn’t much to retrospect on: at the start of a project or initiative. I’ve run them for myself, for other individuals, and … Continue reading

CI and the Change Log

I get in to debates about the relative merits of “Continuous Integration (and Delivery)” vs those of “Feature Branching”  on a fairly regular basis. A common push-back against CI, from the feature-branchers, is “you can’t maintain a clean change-log”. I … Continue reading

Some Observations on React.js

I like clean code. I like code that makes sense and is easy to navigate. I like code that has no surprises. I also like code that is small; small methods, small parameter lists, small classes. I also like testable code with the tests also adhering to my desire for clean, small code. When I […]

Monte Python Simulation: misunderstanding Monte Carlo

One topic that came up from the Cost Accounting camp was the use of numerical methods as estimation tools, in particular Monte Carlo Simulation. I questioned the method’s applicability in this case and ended up a side conversation with the lovely Troy Magennis He asked me to elaborate on this, and in particular about where I think Monte Carlo is useful and where it is misapplied.

Krishna in my life…..

“Why do you have to ask so many questions?”, a teacher asked me many years ago. “In Geeta, even a God was questioned. Why would it be a problem to question humans?”, I used to wonder and get back to my annoying habit of asking questions. When Arjun, who alone had defeated Kaurava army before, […]

Let’s stop asking “what do you want to be when you grow up?”

Hey, look, another blog post (I know, it’s been a while)!  Life has been busy, busy, busy, but fun.  I’ve been writing, rebuilding my web-design business and teaching dance.  And learning, always learning.  Mostly about writing.  I feel like there are never enough hours in the day to learn ALL THE THINGS.  And of course, […]
