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

Entendimento pré-inception

Segue mais uma Q&A sobre Lean Inception. Pergunta: Planejo fazer uma Lean Inception para resolver uma série de problemas em diferentes setores da empresa. Os problemas de cada setor são amplamente conhecidos por seus respectivos colaboradores, mas não são conhecidos entre colaboradores de setores diferentes; um colaborar conhece apenas um problema do seu setor e […]

My favorite musical discoveries of 2020

Like most people, I'm looking forward to seeing 2020 in the rear-view mirror, but even this ugly year has brought some good things. For the last three decades I've regularly bought a few albums every month, and I thought I'd pick out a half-dozen favorites in the hope that they lead some readers to share at least a bit of my musical tastes. I've been doing most of my musical buying on Bandcamp, so you can easily sample them.

Finding a particular file when coding in IntelliJ

 

When working on the Mac and coding in IntelliJ, sometimes you see an error in the console, and it gives the file name. If you want to open the specific file (instead of searching a particular text in all files), use this shortcut instead.


Alternatively, if you are in the finder window and want to go to a particular folder, you can always press "Cmd + shift + G" and paste the path in the dialog box.

From failing slowly to learning at speed

Every organization has ideas on how to improve. Whether that’s ideas to maintain existing customers at reduced costs or increased employee satisfaction (run), sell your existing product or service to more customers (grow), or offer entirely new products or services (transform). A business can generate, quite literally, hundreds to thousands of such ideas over a period of months. It’s not uncommon for an organization to audit the number of projects in flight and realise they have more ongoing projects than people.

Participants and groups area

This is a quick adaptation on the Remote Lean Inception Mural template for the teams using it with a video conferencing tool that does not have the breakout room feature. As a Lean Inception facilitator it is very important to have the capability to split the participants into smaller groups and then regroup as one […]

Lean Inception seguida pelo PBB

“Como é que eu faço a junção do Lean Inception com o PBB?” Os dois métodos podem ser usados separadamente, mas a melhor opção é fazer o “casamento” dos dois e aproveitar o melhor de cada um! A melhor opção é você fazer a Lean Inception e depois o PBB. E sabe o porquê? Bom, […]

Pursuit of Technology Excellence and the Lean Ideal

Amongst agilists, the idea of Technology Excellence is a strong one. A focus on good engineering practices is at the heart of XP. Often this motivations is used to mischaracterise engineers as perfectionists lacking in pragmatism. This narrative is similar to what held back manufacturers like British Leyland, GM and Ford against the onslaught of Toyota. This way of thinking held teams back from pursuing continuous improvement and it has the same effect in software. The end result is products drowning in a sea of technical debt.

Trusting search results from Google & Others

Search engines have been great to find information on the internet with their ease of use and the ability to find cross linked content with specific keywords. This ease of use is being exploited by scammers and theives. Fake or spoofed websites are being setup for reputable companies (especially mass consumer products), and the links are being gamed so that the phishing websites appear as top hits. Here is an example of a google search for fixing errors with remote scanning on canon printer canon scanner errors

Getting started with implementing Automation

Getting started with implementing tests for automation (web or native apps) may seem daunting for those who are doing this for the first time. 

Assuming you are using open-source tooling like Selenium or Appium, there are multiple ways you can get started.

  1. DIY - Build your own framework by scripting based on the documentation

  2. Use Selenium-IDE for quick record and playback

  3. Use TestProject Recorder for quick record and playback

  4. Use TestProject SDK to build your own custom scripts for automating the tests

Each of the above approaches has its own pros-and-cons. Let's look at this in some detail:

Long time no see? Where have I been

It has been a few months since I published anything on my blog. Does not mean I have not been learning or experimenting with new ideas. In fact, in the past few months I have been privileged to have my articles published on Applitools and Test Project blogs.

Below is the link to all those articles, for which I have received very kind reviews and comments on LinkedIn and Twitter.

Apart from this, I have also been contributing to open source - namely - Selenium, AppiumTestDistribution and building an open-source kickstarter project for API testing using Karate and for

Experience of buying direct from small vendors

Recently we did some renovation at home which involved buying a few big ticket items. As I had read a lot about supporting local vendors, I drove to the stores after doing some browsing online on big marketplaces for options. My first reaction on the purchase experience was the level of willingness to negotiate an […]

Data Mesh Principles and Logical Architecture

Last year, my colleague Zhamak Dehghani introduced the notion of the Data Mesh, shifting from the notion of a centralized data lake to a distributed vision of data. Based on more thinking, and the lessons of a year's worth working with clients, she's now written an article outlining four foundational principles of a data mesh, and how they drive a logical architecture.
