Musings and banter on software and product development.

    To Zoom or not to Zoom

    To Zoom or not to Zoom

    It's another remote episode of Bitpicking TV, in audio form!

    This week, the team consider the sudden popularity of Zoom for conferencing, and whether anyone really cares about security and privacy if they can just get to change their background once in a while.  In an ironic twist of events, Skype lets us down halfway through, so we decide to try Zoom out for ourselves.  See if you can spot the join!

    COVIDeo Killed The Radio Star

    Desperate times, desperate measures....  The Bitpicking team congregate on Skype for what's probably the first of many remote sessions.  Naturally, the only topic in town is the impact of COVID-19 on the daily lives of software teams - remote working, changes in business priorities, and how long until we're all on Club Penguin...

    As an added bonus, you can now see our angelic little faces on Bitpicking TV!  Find us at https://youtu.be/xqthn2gMBM0 - like and subscribe! (that's what the cool kids say, right?)

    Biting The Hand That Feeds You

    Laura, Mark and Greg turn their sights on modern Agile - has it lost its way, and has it really changed anything in the meantime?

    (fact-check:  Semco is one of *Brazil's* largest conglomerates, not Britain's - clearly someone can't read and talk at the same time)
