Transformação não tem atalho!

Transformação. A palavra da moda. Transformação ágil, transformação organizacional, transformação digital, transformação lean… e por aí vai. Eu estou preocupado com esse modismo. Desde que comecei a trabalhar, percebi que estamos em constante transformação. Todas pessoas, equipes, áreas e empresas estão constantemente se transformando. E todos sempre buscam melhorias na direção daquilo que almejam (mais […]

Java date-time timezone formats

Java has excellent date-time formatting with the arrival of java.time (JSR310) in Java 8. I point out that release as it came with a usable, safe API. (Let us never speak of Calendar again).

However, I never recall how to format timezone. There are so many options and it is easy to get is "almost right", but not exactly right.


I'd like to append a "Z" character on the end of a UTC timestamp. OK, let's look at the options, showing only those for timezone/offset:

Symbol Meaning Presentation Examples
V time-zone ID zone-id America/Los_Angeles; Z; -08:30

Segue mais uma série de perguntas e respostas sobre o livro Lean Inception. Pergunta: No workshop Lean Inception consegue-se definir o tamanho do projeto, ou seja, determinar uma estimativa para ele?

Podcast on Serendipitous Events published

At the last meeting of the Doppler group, where we create the ThoughtWorks Technology Radar, my colleagues Evan, Neal, Zhamak and myself had a discussion about "serendipitous events". This is the idea of publishing events without knowing whether anyone will consume them, in the hope to create moments of serendipity, where someone discovers information in the enterprise that they can use to create new value. It's an intriguing idea that is too complex to fit the short description we can put on the radar.

Test Automation in the World of AI and ML

My article on "Test Automation in the World of AI & ML" recently got published on InfoQ.

Here are the key takeaways mentioned in the article -

  • There are many criteria to be considered before building framework / selecting tools for Functional Test Automation
  • It is very important to prioritise framework / tools capabilities needed for the software-under-test
  • A good, scalable Test Automation Framework that provides fast and reliable feedback to the team enables collaboration and CI/CD
  • Debugging / RCA (root cause analysis) and support for libraries / tools used is an afterthought in most cases. Do (Anand Bagmar)

Redux middlewares can be used for a variety of things. You can basically tap into a redux event and perform some action with it. Logging and analytics are very common use cases for Redux middleware.

The Trident Model of Career Development

Careers ladders are all the rage in software firms. They create structure and shared expectations around different levels. Like any model, career ladders have pros and cons. Career ladders are a starting point for shared expectations across an organisation. However career ladders cannot be comprehensive, as people are unique, like snowflakes. People bring their different […]

Enterprise Change is Leadership Change

From the COO's perspective, the corporate IT department has hit rock bottom and they keep digging. Very little gets deployed, and the software that does make it live is embarrassingly bad.

IT is not exactly a clean canvas. ERP, CRM, document management and other key systems started life as COTS products but have been configured beyond recognition to a point where they can't be upgraded, and they're so ancient they've been disavowed by their vendors. Adding insult to injury, we're sitting on decades worth of data, but can't point to a single insight we've ever gleaned from it. The COO… (Ross Pettit)

Repair to “Using OAuth for a simple command line script to access Google's data”

In 2015, I wrote a command line script to get some data from YouTube. Since I had difficulty puzzling out the limited documentation, particularly on the authentication and authorization aspects, I wrote a short article to capture what I'd learned. Google updated its libraries in 2016, breaking my scripts. I was busy with other things at the time, so didn't update them (or the article). Finally I've got around to it now, and updated both. Going back, I found the article handy to remind myself how to work with Google's use of OAuth, with refresh and access tokens.
