Who would you prefer your clients remember: you or your firm?

I remember my good friend and ThoughtWorks colleague, Luke Barrett, saying: “If anything is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” We shared numerous consulting assignments together and in all cases, he left his mark on our clients as someone who did top-notch work to the point that most of them remembered him, when anyone spoke… Continue reading Who would you prefer your clients remember: you or your firm?

Rails - Complex Route Constraints Made Easy

In Rails, we know that the routes are the most important entry-point where we define the which url hits which controller. We also know how to define the resources and add some conditions to the routing.

In this post, I want to concentrate about how to go about complex route conditions and make it easy for you to write modular code.

Let's say that you have to write a condition that if the domain belongs to a given domain, route the root url to some other controller. You can accomplish it using the following snippets:

Design for relationships

I remember walking down to Tottenham Court Road tube in the mid-nineties, around 9pm. My poster for the London Symphonia was plastered up on the walls. I had spilled my blood sweat and tears on the winning design. I knew it would end up in the tube stations. In hindsight I wish I could have...

Tech apprenticeship is the new CS degree

The digital economy has the potential to open up opportunities for millions. This reality has become possible only in the last few years. When I entered the IT industry in the 1990’s, the market was much different than today. The world-wide-web existed but companies really had not adopted it yet. Enterprise software and corporate IT… Continue reading Tech apprenticeship is the new CS degree

Organizations as Communities - Part 1


Today, the very definition of organizations has changed. The impact of digitization is going far beyond a few collaboration tools and platforms. Today’s organizations are no longer defined by fixed workplaces, nine-to-five working hours or even a set of homogeneous employees. Organizations have become boundary-less and often, location agnostic and virtual. Operational and business models have been turned on their heads with the advent of enterprises like UberAirbnbEtsy and Amazon. And no industry is immune to this disruptionfrom education to retail, from healthcare to hospitalitythe old business

Suddenly Spotify: My Transition to Streaming Music

I have some big news to share this week:  I have finally joined the 10’s and started listening to streaming music. 😂  I have taken my music collection very seriously my entire life.  Even after digital music arrived on the scene, I was precious about my ‘collection’.  I can recall hours/days/weeks/months of time spent digitizing… Continue reading Suddenly Spotify: My Transition to Streaming Music

My Remote Retrospective Process

Possibly the most important aspect of an agile process is the retrospective. A retrospective usually happens in a team meeting, generally at the end of every agile iteration or sprint. While there are any number of ways to run retrospectives, the object is to discuss three questions:

     What is working well?
     What is not working well?
     What should we change?

The first question tends to be the easiest to answer, and it is tempting to just skip it, but that is dangerous. It is every bit as important to celebrate the team's success as…

2019 Tech Predictions

It’s that time of year again… well, actually, a few days late, but I’ve been busy, I swear As has become my tradition now for nigh-on a decade, I will first go back over last years’ predictions, to see how well I called it (and keep me honest), then wax prophetic on what I think the new year has to offer us.

As per previous years, I’m giving myself either a +1 or a -1 based on a purely subjective and highly-biased evaluational criteria as to whether it actually happened (or in some cases at least started to happen before…
