MVP and the One Metric That Matters

In the elaboration of MVP for experimentation, it is important to identify a key metric that will tell us if the assumptions in our hypotheses are valid. Alistair Croll and Benjamin Yoskovitz, the authors of Lean Analytics (O’Reilly), introduced the concept of the One Metric that Matters — OMTM, for short. The OMTM is a […]

Mas, hoje, eu […]

But Is It Really a Tech Firm?

There are lots of executives who would have you believe that the business they run is really a tech business. With tech firm valuations still at sky-high levels, it's easy to understand why. Tech commands a premium valuation because (a) the potential for non-linear growth relative to investment; (b) low barriers to entry into adjacent markets amplifies that growth; (c) scale of offerings changes the commercial model from transactional to flat-fee subscription, making a tech firm an unregulated utility; (d) payments take place behind-the-scenes of the tech consumption, creating sustainable recurring revenue; and (e) tech industries tend to be winner-take-all.

Books Published

Building Evolutionary Architectures: Support Constant Change by Neal Ford, Rebecca Parsons, Patrick Kua Building Evolutionary Architectures: Support Constant Change For a variety of reasons, parts of software systems defy change, becoming more brittle and intractable over time. However, the world we inhabit has exactly the opposite characteristic. Business constantly changes, but so does the software development ecosystem. New tools, techniques, approaches, and frameworks constantly impact that equilibrium in unanticipatable ways.

SSL Connection to AWS Aurora

On a recent project we had to connect to AWS Aurora postgres 10.6 version of the database in SSL mode using JDBC and Java 11 JRE. When the Aurora cluster is setup, we can force all connections to use SSL by using the options group settings (forceSSL=true), establishing secure connection from the application to the database is not as easy as it looks.

Here are the steps we took to make this work.
