Today, the Raspberry Pi Foundation released a new model, called the B+.
Lets have less talk about “The Scientific Method” and more talk about “Tidying up the Kitchen” - or is it better in French? Mise en place…. come to think of it, don’t the Lean community have Japanese word for this? Pika pika.
It recently occurred to me that not one of the dozens and dozens of user interfaces I've worked on over the years, had the same methodology/lifecycle.
It’s been quite the summer for debunking widely held beliefs. Last month there was a broohaha over an article in New Yorker from Harvard academic Jill Lepore that attempted to poo poo Clayton Christensen’s widely heralded thesis from The Innovator’s Dilemma.
Looking around the web for information on creating a new shell from Go, I kept finding the same answer: "You can't do it." Actually, you can do it, and it's not hard.
I’ve been using wxPython for quite a while now and I see certain questions come up on a fairly frequent basis. One of the popular ones is how to ask the user for their credentials before loading up the rest of the application.
I admit: I’m sometimes a lazy person. In my projects, I only needed one ‘disk drive’ with the FatFS Processor Expert component: either a SD card or a USB MSD drive.
Your angelic nature tells you to do the right thing; the reality is that your darker side will take over in certain situations...
Summer is here. While laying on the beach, you can use the time to learn new programming language or get some overview on the framework of your interest. I bought myself Kindle, my beach holiday is just a day away, so it’s time to fill the reader with content.
These items are a combination of tech business news, development news and programming tools and techniques.
I will be in Atlanta July 16 showing how to build a complete HTML5/PhoneGap App with Appery.io. The event is sponsored by Atlanta HTML5 User Group and Atlanta Mobile Developers Group. Hope to see you there.
Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (July 4 to July 11.) This week's topics include scaling agile, dev of the week, the bystander effect, whether developers need degrees and kanban.
Rituals act as social glue, help pace your work, and foster discipline. Like your regular morning coffee, they give your team structure and stability in an ever changing environment.
Ok, so if software delivery isn’t like manufacturing, then what is it like? There must be some analogous model we can endlessly compare against and draw parallels with, right? Well, maybe…
In this video I answer a question about fitting into corporate culture when you come from a different background.
Here are five quick points that developers should be conscious of when their code is running in a multi-threaded (usually Java EE) environment. We all write code where we don't create threads ourselves but our code is still being executed in multi-threaded environment. Here are some tips focused on helping you write code that is thread-ready and thread-safe.
The phrase, “definition of done” comes out of the agile movement. But there is no reason why it needs to stay there. In fact, I would argue that many of the problems we have in the software industry are because most organizations only have one definition of done, “If we ship this today, can we make money?”
In this article we are going to look at using IF statements in Sass.
HTML's a mess, I think. A SAX form handing off to a YACC form that can be escaped within the former. CSS has turned out to be a whole PhD subject on its own. What if we could start over? What would that look like?
