Responsible Tech Playbook

Those of us developing software don’t need to be told what a big impact it’s had on humanity this century. I’ve long maintained that this places a serious responsibility on our profession. Whether asked to or not, we have a duty to ensure our systems don’t degrade our society. But in the tumult of so many software projects, it can be difficult to step back and understand the implications of our work. In the last few months my colleagues at Thoughtworks have been putting together a catalog of techniques that we can use to address this problem, which they published…

The Manager-Leader versus the Manager-Administrator

We saw last month that just because somebody is the manager of an Agile team does not make that person an Agile manager. The Agile manager does specific things: advances the understanding of the domain, has a symbiotic relationship with the do-ers, creates and adjusts the processes and social systems, and protects the team’s execution. By virtue of doing these things, the Agile manager is a leader, whereas the traditional manager is just an administrator.

I have been fortunate to watch the rise of Agile competencies over the last two decades. I have been less fortunate to watch Agile management…

Ship / Show / Ask: A modern branching strategy

I've written a fair bit about how using pull requests can encourage a low integration frequency, increasing cycle time and discouraging refactoring. Rouan Wilsenach has had success using an approach that categorizes changes as Ship/Show/Ask - using this classification to decide whether and how to use pull requests.

What, Exactly, Is Agile Management?

Engineers have long had a poor relationship with managers. There are the stories long told of engineers unconstrained by management executing high stakes skunkworks projects, or more modestly using guerilla tactics to sneak unauthorized features into products that delight users. There are popular caricatures such as the pointy-haired manager in Dilbert, or Ford Motor’s management as portrayed in the movie Ford v Ferrari. Historically, management has never been loved, and in fact is often loathed, by engineers.

This all seems different in Agile. Management appears to be well integrated in Agile teams, not an overhead, nuisance, or encumbrance as it…

User-defined build settings for Bazel builds

For the last couple of years I have been building command line applications in Go using Bazel As part of the development workflow it’s important to run the application as it is expected to be run by other people - the customers That means installing the CLI on to the path Bazel works by building everything in a sandbox directory This is great for keeping the source tree clean but makes installing localy slightly harder One option would be to install the application after it has been built and published but that does not help out with experimentation -…
