Blogs

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

ThoughtWorks embraces the individuality of the people in the organization and hence the opinions expressed in the blogs may contradict each other and also may not represent the opinions of ThoughtWorks.

Blogo - Your blog editor for Mac


When you post blogs, it is a hassle to log into google with your username and password, and then navigate to the different tabs and publish your post. But then there are zillions of blogger tools available which makes our job easier.

Benefits of Product-mode

Sriram continues his examination of why products are better than projects by looking into the benefits of product-mode thinking. With products you can quickly change direction and have faster cycles to get ideas into production - which are the consequences of truly iterative development. Product teams' more stable team members result in better knowledge retention and more architectural integrity in the code base.

On boarding new team members

Teams change and Software Development Teams are no different. When this change is about bringing someone new to the team, we call this process an on-boarding. This process involves tasks to integrate this person to the team and the project, but misconceptions and unrealistic expectations make this process challenging for the new person and for the team itself. 

Newcomers manage alone a successful on-boarding outcome is the belief which creates these misconceptions. Some teams spend time with the new person presenting topics and instructions; but deep down the belief remains. “We need a fast learner, are you one?”, “We are…

Products Over Projects

For a long time, my colleagues and I have been arguing the organizations need to organize their software efforts as products rather than projects. But we haven't really come up with a great way to articulate what we see as the difference. Finally my colleague Sriram Narayam has stepped up to fill in the gap with a long-form article here. In the first installment, he covers the difference between project and product thinking. Later installments will cover the benefits and challenges of product-mode.

Bliki: MachineJustification

I remember in my teens being told of the wonderful things Artificial Intelligence (AI) would do in the next few years. Now several decades later, some of these seem to be happening. The most recent triumph was of computers teaching each other to play Go by playing against each other, rapidly becoming more proficient than any human, with strategies human experts could barely comprehend. It's natural to wonder what will happen over the next few years, will computers soon have greater intelligence than humanity? (Given some recent election results, that may not be too hard a bar to cross.)

[coaching] Sim, engatinhar é necessário!

A minha bebê tentou andar antes de engatinhar. Achei engraçadinho, e confesso que até a segurei pelas mãos para ajudá-la a caminhar. Foi então que parei para ler a respeito. E descobri que eu estava cometendo um grande erro. Lendo alguns artigos sobre pediatria e a primeira infância, eu descobri que pular a fase de […]

Comparing Race for the Galaxy and San Juan

San Juan and Race for the Galaxy are two of my favorite card games. They have a similar style and heritage, both much influenced by Puerto Rico. I'm happy to own both as San Juan is easier to teach and generally lighter play experience, but Race excels when I'm after more depth.

A indústria automotiva está mudando rapidamente. Veja o  sucesso do Tesla Model 3 (carro elétrico com código open source) e da Google evoluindo seu carro auto-dirigido.

Max out

Often I come across questions like ‘is that what the max you can do in that situation?’. During these moments I get tempted to ask questions like ‘I saw you walking to my desk now, why did not you run?’. I sense that people have misunderstood maximum to be optimal. Optimal is sustainable, maximum is […]
