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

Visual Assertions - not another buzzword

Visual Testing and Visual Assertions may seem like yet another buzzword in the Software industry.

Being curious, I did an experiment using Applitools Visual AI to see if this is something that can genuinely help, or if it is a buzzword. You can read about this experiment, refer to the code and see the resulting data from this post - "Visual Assertions - Hype or Reality?".

Distributed Systems Pattern: State Watch

Clients are interested in changes to the specific values on the server. It's difficult for clients to structure their logic if they need to poll the server continuously to look for changes. If clients open too many connections to the server for watching changes, it can overwhelm the server.

Some more Distributed Systems Patterns

Unmesh Joshi has a few more of his Patterns of Distributed Systems ready to share with the world.

  • Consistent Core looks at how a large cluster can keep some information strongly consistent,
  • Lease allows unreliable nodes to access limited resources without blocking them when they fail
  • State Watch allows clients to be notified of changes on a server.

Coping with COVID fatigue is curbing your enthusiasm

As multiple COVID vaccines roll out many of the most vulnerable are weeks away from protection. For the first time in nearly a year, the idea that we can slowly begin to “return to normal” feels plausible. Yet, with a bitter irony, many are facing the toughest period of this pandemic. Infection rates, hospitalisations and deaths are at their highest causing health services to teeter on the brink of collapse whilst the general population experiences some of its toughest and longest period of heavy restrictions in, what for many is the bleakest part of the year: winter.

What does ‘make the work visible’ and ‘go see’ mean in a remote world?

We talk about the importance of making work visible and the leadership value of “go see” has on improving decision making throughout the organisation. That’s one thing in colocated teams and when we have relative freedom of movement. But how do you achieve this when everyone is working remotely and physical meetups are not possible?

Distributed Systems Pattern: Lease

Cluster nodes need exclusive access to certain resources. But nodes can crash; they can be temporarily disconnected or experiencing a process pause. Under these error scenarios, they should not keep the access to a resource indefinitely.

Personal futurespective para cruzar esta cueva (COVID)

Confieso que no hice mi retrospectiva personal de 2020. Me encantan las retrospectivas y suelo reservar una tarde para hacer una retrospectiva personal al final del año. Pero a finales de 2020, no me detuve a hacer mi retrospectiva personal. No quería detenerme a recordar los grandes desafíos (y la tristeza) de 2020 y las […]

Where is the star?

The Minimum Viable Product. No, the Minimum Loveable Product. No, the Minimum Testable Product. No, Minimum Marketeable Product. No, the Minimum Releaseable Product. No, the Proof of Concept. No, the Prototype. Many times, as a Lean Inception facilitator, you will have to handle such conversations. And there are many great reasons for each of these […]

The Lies that can Undermine Democracy

Like many Americans, I was transfixed and horrified by the recent assault on the Capitol. Much of this anger originates in lies perpetrated by irresponsible politicians and spread through media agencies. Lies like this can destroy democracies, and while we must have free speech we must not be free of the consequences of that speech
