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?”
Find out how the Swedish police combined Kanban, Scrum, and XP in a 60-person project. Ward Cunningham called this talk, "Awesome." Now you know it's legit.
This session will look at the added complexity of Cloud, Open Source and Software Complexity on testing professionals through the lens of 2 years worth of research.
Daily standup meetings are not only about sharing yesterday’s work, but they are designed to help team members plan for the day and look to the future. If you’re working in a distributed environment there are plenty of guidelines as well.
There seems to be one particular role that is common to most agile teams - the Scrum Master. Why do XP and Lean Kanban teams often claim to have them...not just Scrum? Are these Scrum Masters for real?
A broad-stack test is a test that exercises most of the parts of a large application. It's often referred to as an end-to-end test or full-stack test. It lies in contrast to a ComponentTest, which only exercises a well-defined part of a system.
As I’m working with smaller and more agile projects, I’m increasingly seeing the classic way that Scrum is executed as more of an impediment to agility than a helper.
Some of you probably already get this… some of you might even disagree… but unless you are building software as a hobby… chances are, you building software for money. In other words, someone is paying you to write software for them.
I’d like to think we can draw the estimation war to an end and focus on the real question: How do we produce meaningful estimates and when is it worth doing so?
Ngnix gets a new major release while TechEmpower continues their epic web framework performance benchmarks. Plus, Google's mobile web performance checklist and a tool for rapid drag-and-drop prototyping with twitter bootstrap.
The constructor of an object contains a declaration of its dependencies, in hardwired or injected form. There are a few exceptions, such as creating new objects all over the place inside other methods (with no regard for Dependency Injection), accepting objects as method parameters or with setters; however, constructor injection remains one of the simplest and more powerful ways to build a web of collaborating objects.
User Stories are chunks of desired behavior of a software system. They are widely used in agile software approaches to divide up a large amount of functionality into smaller pieces for planning purposes.
I wanted to take a few minutes to share some thoughts and experiences about pair programming. I think there's a grass-roots movement for doing more pair-programming in the open source community.
In some manner or another, I've served in roles frequently referred to as "boss" for over 20 years. In many more instances, I held some rank that granted me authority over the work-lives of others. I've learned a great deal over the years. And I am definitely still learning.
