Go and Bazel to build containers

Yesterday I spent some time experimenting with building containerized Go applications. Writing a small restful web service in go is really quite straightforward and there are many better examples out there on the web.

What was interesting for me was seeing how Bazel supports a typical workflow building and running containerized web services. In this case using a small Go program.

Bazel is still relatively new but gaining in popularity. Over the last 6 months or so stability and functionality has really improved. Bazel really shines when combined with a mono-repo approach. For this example the bazel configuration feels more…

Confidence Voting

Confidence Voting is a practice used to give visibility to how confident a team is in relation to something that is being proposed, for example, the Sprint planning. In addition to removing influences, it also works as a safety check and helps to highlight when something is not cool and needs to be adjusted before […]

Confidence Voting é uma prática utilizada para dar visibilidade do quão confiante um time está em relação a algo que está sendo proposto como, por exemplo, entregar a Sprint. Além de remover influências, também funciona como um safety check e ajuda a evidenciar quando algo não está legal e precisa ser ajustado antes que o […]

Thoughts writing a Google App script

Recently a friend of mine asked for a simple program that would correlate some data drawn from a couple of online services. I decided the best way to do this for him would be to use a google spreadsheet as the host, putting the code into the spreadsheet's script area. I'm no expert in Google App Script, but the exercise led to a few observations, which I feel compelled to share.

Quem vem primeiro as Histórias ou o MVP? O Ovo ou a galinha?

Para mim, primeiro você decide o MVP, depois descreve as histórias do usuário. Primeiro você decide O QUE você quer validar, para depois você pensar em COMO validar (criar as histórias que implementam esse MVP). Eu leio posts, artigos e livros de outras pessoas, que fazem o caminho oposto: primeiro decidem as histórias, o COMO […]

Dissonance on autonomy

I was speaking to a tech lead who was inspired by Dan Pink’s drive and motivation video. This person was speaking great lengths about how to motivate team members, how to set them goals etc and also went on to say that only if this person’s managers showed same consideration and handover more autonomy, then […]

Depending on your inception context, you might have to explicitly add an activity for raising the conversation and listing the threat scenarios to be considered. The APA threat modeling activity organize the threats by exploring the Attackers, […]

Inception e Felicidade da equipe

Outro dia, facilitei uma retrospectiva para uma equipe que trabalha junta há mais de um ano. Duas das minhas paixões são inceptions e retrospectivas. Portanto, durante essa retrospectiva, fiquei muito interessado em ouvir mais insights sobre a inception desta equipe. Ser um facilitador de retrospectiva é muito gratificante.

Vote Against Trump, Again

I try not to write much about electoral politics, but just as I did four years ago, I think it's important to vote against Mr Trump. While we haven't descended as far into authoritarianism as the worst-case fears, we have taken some significant steps. We must repudiate those steps, and defeat further ones, by voting against Mr Trump and his enablers.

All In

Immediately after World War II, Coca-Cola had 60% of the soft drinks market in the United States. By the early 1980s, it had about 25%. Not only had Coca-Cola been outmanouvered in product marketing (primarily by Pepsi), consumer concerns over sugar and calories drove consumers to diet soft drinks and to refreshment options outside of the soft drink category. The fear in the executive ranks was evidently so great that Coca-Cola felt it necessary to change its formula. Coca-Cola did the market research and found a formula that fizzy-drink consumers preferred over both old Coke and Pepsi. Coca-Cola launched the…

FunRetrospectives.com redesign

Amongst other things, I really like MVP and retrospectives. This probably explains FunRetrospectives.com over the years. FunRetrospectives.com is a simple dedicated blog for sharing proven retrospectives activities. The site gets lots of access. I believe it has to do with the simplicity and organisation of its content. But it still keeps the original look, from […]
