Blogs

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

ThoughtWorks embraces the individuality of the people in the organization and hence the opinions expressed in the blogs may contradict each other and also may not represent the opinions of ThoughtWorks.

Working on the Web Edition of Refactoring 2nd Ed

After a couple of ThoughtWorks meetings, I've put decent work into the web edition of the book. While I still have a few things to do, it's now close to done.

Welcome to El Madridista!

Hello guys, my name is Aseel Alnusairat and I'm proud to present to you my brand new blog, El Madridista. The core idea is to discuss and provide opinions on relevant topics regarding the best club in Europe, Real Madrid! All from the unique perspective of a fan.
I've often found myself longing to share my opinion and what's in my head when it comes to Los Blancos. And while pundits and football experts often provide useful and respectable analysis, no one has the passion a true fan has. In conclusion, I hope not only that you enjoy the…

Avoid JIRA

I filed this issue with Atlassian about JIRA:

You make it incredibly difficult to report issues about JIRA itself
 * I cannot use Markdown in the editor.  You are the only tool I use which does
   not support markdown.  This is one of the top reasons I recommend against
   using JIRA to clients  Ex: quoting code with single backticks, or code blocks
   with tripple backticks
 * Finding the issue tracker for JIRA is a PITA.  Even after finding it, when
   creating a new issue, it offers a dialog/link that takes me back to the
   beginning
 * The web pages for

Book Review: Factfulness

Book Review: Factfullness It was almost a decade ago, I first watched Hans Rosling talk about the ever changing state of the world (see the videos here). He was a poster-child for demonstrating how visuals can bring static data to life. In his last legacy to the world, Rosling published the book, “Factfullness.” Unfortunately he […]

Conference season here is - talks, workshops, travelling, networking!

September & October 2018 is a busy conference season for me.

On 27th September, I played a game - "Collaboration - A Taboo!" at ATA GTR 2018 with an audience of 100+ people. There was absolute chaos in the game - a lot of it self-inflicted ... and thankfully - exactly was I wanted it to be. So much fun, energy and enthusiasm in the room meant there was no one feeling drowsy in the post lunch session! 

Typically I play this game in 45-min to 1 hour duration. At ATA GTR 2018 though, I had only 30

The trouble with gig economy

I grew up in a social setting such that people once they earn a bad name, it was very difficult for them to recover and be back in full swing in the society. They have to rebuild their reputation either in a new place or the same place. Why did people try to associate themselves […]

Accessing your historical bash commands instantly !




As a tester, you might be testing several systems and each have different commands. A common interface might be the bash shell.

How do you get all the previous commands you typed in bash before? Once you close the bash command?

I struggled with this for a few days, and even wrote down commands in notepad, so that i can use them later. Later, I wondered how easy my work would become if i could type the first word of my command and i could search through my bash history.

The problem

Lets say, i used the following command a…

Beginner's Mind

A little over a decade ago, I was part of a team introducing new practices to a 200+ person, distributed development team. A lot of people were too quick to understand them. Some participated in stand-up as if it were a one-way status meeting. Others were still creating long-lived branches in Perforce as if they were still using ClearCase. "Stories" was just a new word for the technical tasks they had always assigned. Two people I was working with at the time pointed that everybody would be well served to approach these new practices with "beginner's mind."

Removing Joda from Spring Boot

Removing Joda from Spring Boot

The problem

We recently migrated a medium-sized Java project to Spring Boot 2 from version 1. One of the challenges was migrating to the JDK date-time library from Joda. It turns out that Spring Boot 2 has excellent native support for JDK date-times, as does Jackson (JSON) and Hibernate (database), the default technologies offered by Spring Boot 2 for these features.

The migration itself went smoothly, which is unsurprising given the fantastic work of Stephen Colebourne in designing JDK date-time support based on his authorship of Joda.

Negotiating an indemnification clause

Nearly every commercial contract will have an indemnification provision. Indemnity is a contractual obligation of one party to compensate the loss suffered by the other party due to an act or omission.
