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

Teams change and Software Development Teams are no different. When this change is about bringing someone new to the team, we call this process an on-boarding. This process involves tasks to integrate this person to the team and the project, but misconceptions and unrealistic expectations make this process challenging for the new person and for the team itself.
Newcomers manage alone a successful on-boarding outcome is the belief which creates these misconceptions. Some teams spend time with the new person presenting topics and instructions; but deep down the belief remains. “We need a fast learner, are you one?”, “We are…

For a long time, my colleagues and I have been arguing the organizations need to organize their software efforts as products rather than projects. But we haven't really come up with a great way to articulate what we see as the difference. Finally my colleague Sriram Narayam has stepped up to fill in the gap with a long-form article here. In the first installment, he covers the difference between project and product thinking. Later installments will cover the benefits and challenges of product-mode.

I remember in my teens being told of the wonderful things Artificial Intelligence (AI) would do in the next few years. Now several decades later, some of these seem to be happening. The most recent triumph was of computers teaching each other to play Go by playing against each other, rapidly becoming more proficient than any human, with strategies human experts could barely comprehend. It's natural to wonder what will happen over the next few years, will computers soon have greater intelligence than humanity? (Given some recent election results, that may not be too hard a bar to cross.)
A minha bebê tentou andar antes de engatinhar. Achei engraçadinho, e confesso que até a segurei pelas mãos para ajudá-la a caminhar. Foi então que parei para ler a respeito. E descobri que eu estava cometendo um grande erro. Lendo alguns artigos sobre pediatria e a primeira infância, eu descobri que pular a fase de […]
San Juan and Race for the Galaxy are two of my favorite card games. They have a similar style and heritage, both much influenced by Puerto Rico. I'm happy to own both as San Juan is easier to teach and generally lighter play experience, but Race excels when I'm after more depth.

Quatro palestras e um excelente bate papo: Charbel Semaan falando sobre Google Design Sprint Eu fiz a minha palestra Inovar ou Morrer (3Hs, Direto ao ponto, Estratégia Lean) Nelson Abu falou agilidade e […]
A indústria automotiva está mudando rapidamente. Veja o sucesso do Tesla Model 3 (carro elétrico com código open source) e da Google evoluindo seu carro auto-dirigido. E o que dizer a respeito ao mercado de varejo… Parecia um mercado bem estabelecido e com mudanças lentas, até que a Amazon comprou o mercado WholeFoods nos USA. […]
I'm helping someone with a scripting problem on an old system and an old shell. How old? Try IBM AIX 6.1, first released in 2007, and ksh93 "e" released in ... 1993. At least the AIX is a version of 6.1 from 2014 (Kudos to IBM for treating long-term support seriously.)
A second point to ponder. The goal is to improve remote
scripting—running scripts on a remote machine. In this
ssh exists but is not used. The remote execution
tool chosen is
one of the most
dangerous tools possible. But my remit is…
The automotive industry is changing fast. Tesla´s Model 3 enormous success (electric car with open source technology), and Google evolving their self-driving car. What about the retail market… It seemed to be a established market with slow changes, until Amazon bought the WholeFoods market. Now everyone knows things will change super-fast. I have just bought […]
