Get some advice for dealing with burnout or if you find that you don't want to program anymore. Plus some important news about the JS spec "Promises" and a 17 year old girl who won a major hackathon.
And, since I’m cheating on how to do a real personal kanban, I thought I would at least describe for you how to do real personal kanban over at Personal Kanban for Your Job Hunt.
//Code for Joining Multiple Documents Together
// The document that the other documents will be appended to.
Document doc = new Document();
// We should call this method to clear this document of any existing content.
int recordCount = 5;
for (int i = 1; i <= recordCount; i++)
// Open the document to join.
Document srcDoc = new Document(@"C:\DetailsList.doc");
// Append the source document at the end of the destination document.
// In automation you were required to insert a new section break at this point, however in Aspose.Words we

The sales team made promises of technology the company wasn’t capable of delivering. Meanwhile the engineering team was sent scrambling to answer to those promises. This is why I started out hating sales in my early career.
It is to easy to get hung up on a mistake and become paralyzed by it in such a way that it prevents you from having future success. I seem to have an instinctual desire to throw away what I am doing or try to completely wipe the board clean, whenever I make a mistake.
Scenarios and storyboards are great tools to describe how users interact with a product. They also complement user stories nicely: Scenarios and boards help explore risky stories, discover new user stories, and capture the relationship between stories.
A component test is a test that limits the scope of the exercised software to a portion of the system under test. It is in contrast to a Broad-Stack Test that's intended to exercise as much of the system as is reasonable.
A key decision in building and managing any development team is agreeing on how ownership of the code will be divided up: who is going to work on what code; how much work can be, and should be, shared across the team; and who will be responsible for code quality.

Richard Hundhausen has put together a great list of funny Scrum/Agile related videos. Some of these are classics such as High Moon Studios: Portrait of Scrum and Adam Weisbart’s Shit Bad Scrum Masters say.
How wonderful is the world of REST (or maybe ROT) web services... But many legacy and enterprise systems that we need to integrate are only accessible via SOAP. With a bit of experience and the right testing support, SOAP web services are not technologically difficult to call from PHP code.
Yahoo’s decision to ban working from home can hardly have escaped anyone’s attention. Whatever the reasons might be, to me their decision sends out a signal of desperation and reveals that Yahoo's management is incapable of dealing with flexible working.
A business-facing test is a test that's intended to be used as an aid to communicating with the non-programming members of a development team such as customers, users, business analysts and the like.
My chosen color scheme for Sublime Text doesn't include support for diff/patch files, so I added my own.
“Part-timers just don’t seem to fit in with the team,” a manager complained recently. “I do everything I can to impress on them the importance of teamwork and team spirit, but they just don’t gel with the team. What can I do to motivate these people to fit in?”
