(around 8.feb to 14.feb)
There’s been a tremendous number of great articles, posts and tweets this week! How can I possible limit myself to 10 links? Well, that’s my rule, but rules like those are really stupid and counter-productive. Sometimes a lot happen, other times less, shouldn’t that be taken into consideration?
Below, you’ll see my comments as OMA. On twitter, I am @ole_morten.
This weeks articles, blog posts and such:
- Recommend! Why your organisation won’t be agile Attacking mainstream agile. Or, really, the mainstream implementation of agile.
- @hnshah tweeted link Don’t Let Good Become the Enemy of Great. /via @gigaom #startup. OMA: Focus on core features( max three), making them great and forget about the rest (at first). Like iPod and gmail.
- @Tordf RT @saracogl 10 Most Useful #Java Best Practice Quotes for Java Developers #programming | good list. OMA: I learned something, I bet you will too :)
- @KentBeck screencast of a simple example of a fluent api driven by tests from @jitterted OMA: (failed on my mac, but ok on XP). 6 min, nice and simple. I’m gonna refactor some date utility code now…
- @olvemaudal RT @geirber: No Scum, No More (via @aptoma) OMA: They’re getting it, what agile really is, that makes me so happy!
- @anoras HTML5 is a Silverligt/Flash killer: <- Doesn’t work in Opera or IE OMA: not a blog, just a drawing tool implemented in HMTL5 (wikipedia)
- @kjetilv In defense of the FactoryFactory (via one of @al3x´s minions) OMA: title”Why I love everything you hate about Java”. This is a great article! At the time of reading, I like the comments too :) I love it when the comments stay on-topic and are reflective. IMO I don’t think twitter would have gotten where they are if they had started up with the technology and factoryfactory solutions they ended up with. And this is the very thing I love, start KISS, then refactor or completely redesign parts of your system to tackle your success. Sorry about this long comment, I had to give this link extra Kudos.
- @jonvold Anbefales! –> @ramyo og @jhannes har blogget om fordommer rundt smidig og brukervennlighet. OMA: Reflektert og bra skrevet, akkurat som man ville forventet fra disse.
- @vidar_alvestad Progress matters most (via @KevlinHenney) Ah! That’s why big visible #kanban boards works: It shows progress :D
A few I noted.
@martinfowler OH: Certified Scrum Master ought to be renamed Certified Scrum Novice
@KentBeck if you want a concrete measure of your design skills, port your software. you can’t overlook coupling when it breaks your tests.
@KentBeck make it run, *then* make it right. how many times do i have to tell me?
That’s all folks! A little too much maybe, this time. I even left out a lot I wanted to share! I’d be very happy for any tips helping me write this summary better. It feels a bit messy IMO. Use more keywords or categorization? Tables?
