There is no role

Companies seem to spend countless hours searching the best candidates for various roles, yet in software development many positions are perceived as designated to fill in specific sill gaps in a specific project. That means there is no role but a job to do in the scope of specific project, or even an iteration. Long lived positions in software development are just a thing of a past.

Rapid prototyping

Rapid prototyping seems everything that a clean architecture and engineering it is not. Prototyping means researching solution in a iterative process with many dark alleys. Rapid prototyping involves clients early and often, and therefore work far better than crafting excellent solutions only by engineers..

Synergy

Far too many organisations are focused on ensuring elusive synergy in software teams, whereas Organizations which design systems are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations, seeking a common denominator within a team of different people.

Culture of engineering

Today engineering seems far more important than ever before. Yet engineering comes with its own culture that in the end tends to be skewed far to much on the engineering aspect of doing work.

Learning is the new procrastination

Seems like there is no better way to learn new things by doing. Far too often we focus on learning new technologies without the real world scenarios for putting our knowledge to work. In fact the only effective model is to learn as you do, not the other way round.

Three degrees of measuring performance

Measuring software performance by taking the processing complexity into account is misleading. The overall system performance, or performance perceived by end users is the second degree. The third most commonly ignored degree of performance, is developer performance, that is ability to quickly understand and to change code in order to deliver software quickly.

Lessons from Tom Sawyer

Work consists of whatever a body is obliged to do. Play consists of whatever a body is not obliged to do. “To make a man or a boy covet a thing, it is only necessary to make the thing difficult to attain.”

Managing processes

Software projects might just as well be just software processes, in fact the whole concept of thinking of a software product as a project with a distinct beginning and a designated due date is just plain wrong

Creating software is a social activity

Building great teams

Organizations which design systems are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations (Conway, 1967) therefore building a great team must follow the business structure, not communuication structure between individuals.
