    Two Mantras, One Theme | #123

    Two Mantras, One Theme | #123

    Two recurring phrases in my work are 1) It is like this because we built it to be like this. 2) The code works for you, you don't work for the code. Two sides of one page, phrased on the front as negative critique, and on the verso as positive encouragement.

    Path-Focused Design | #122

    "Path-focused design", of stories, architecture, code, is design that understands that we can only reach a distant City on the Hill by taking one stride-limited shipping step at a time.

    Big Batch Releases | #121

    Big-batch releases, coordinated and controlled by a central intelligence, fail, and fail frequently. Several aspects of this are fascinating, because of the interplay of hard mathematical reality with human frailty. Let's take a swing.

    Sharing Configurations | #120

    You can put all your configuration in a shared library and eliminate just about every mis-configuration in your multi-process application. It's not free, but it's cheap, and it kills a lot of minor pain. Let's take a gander.

    Re-Orienting Around Backsteps | #119

    Re-Orienting Around Backsteps | #119

    When large teams struggle with trunk-based development (TBD) or continuous integration/deployment (CI/CD), a good strategy is to re-orient how the teams face "backsteps", moments in our workflow where a discovery forces us to re-open a stage we thought was closed. Large teams & projects often pre-date the use of modern synthesis techniques like TBD or CD, and during adoption, intermixing their Before with this new After can produce quite a bit of discomfort.

    On Agile Methods | #118

    A couple of days back, I tweeted about SAFe. It created some stir on the timeline, which was great, as I got to see a lot of perspectives. I want to use that tweet as an excuse to talk about something much larger. This will be a long one. :)
