Performance Impact of an IO-Intensive Application

If you’ve ever worked on performance issues with an IO- intensive app, there is a good chance you already know that the application performance degrades when the disks are stressed out.

The Illusion of Control

As managers, we can create a safe environment where issues can appear, and we can do something about them, rather than keeping them secret until the last irresponsible moment. We can be honest with our customers to create trust between us, and improve our relationship with them, which will benefit both of us.

Agile Smells Versus Agile Zombies in the Uncanny Valley

I don’t like to use the term smell. I prefer to say that you’re in “the valley”. I’m referring to the uncanny valley. When something looks and moves almost, but not exactly, like a healthy person, it causes a response of revulsion among some observers.
