I am currently getting back to coding in Java + Spring after about 8 years. In the last 8 years, the time I spent on coding has gone significantly as I am now into leadership roles that take me away from writing code. Having said that, I need to understand some level of coding, especially […]
You can hear what a client/partner needs and you can just meet their needs. OR You can listen to them, and start building a new relationship and lay the foundation for a long-running gig. You can only succeed in that partnership when you start by focusing on solving immediate paint points but never lose track […]
Last few years have been fascinating with several front-end frameworks coming up. I am not going to compare them; neither am I going to talk about The Good or The Bad on them. The buzz words, the new technologies are so shiny that almost everyone I speak to today wants to work on the new […]
Alpha releases are done to test functionality for early feedback Alpha releases do not run for 6 months Alpha releases are not exposed such that consumers are able to consume and create content Telling your users, that your software is in Alpha after 5 months of launch is a lame way of telling people that […]
Neither of the 2 frameworks win the debate. They both have specific use cases where they fit and here is how…
it’s like jumping into my car and every time i see the dashboard every light in there is brightly lighted up – to the point that one day i stop caring. eventually, someday something will fail – i just hope it’s not the day when I am driving to someplace in an emergency.
Most of our Notifications and alerting strategy is more than a brightly lit Dashboard. We cant any more tell what’s gonna fail when.
It’s a false hope we live with.
The idea is to use our experience of things and make it better, Do It Differently. We often time forget that and what we end up doing is exactly what we did last time – the same good things, the same mistakes.
I recently came across this cool tool http://www.stackifier.com/ which allows you to make so much sense out of your stack traces. Once I have locked on a stack I want to look at, this tool makes it so much easier.
We will see how this goes. But, for now the 5 rules for quality for me stand even today are:
– Deliver an artifact and ensure no one can find a defect;
– I can refactor the code knowing it won’t break anything;
– Code commits work like a charm and i can deliver code in environments quickly and with certainly;
– When I send this application to my dear friends in operation, they don’t hate and curse me;
– Quality meant, once my work is done it’s done
Ravi Pal aside from being a dear friend is someone I respect a lot; he is a technologist who wows me every time I talk about something. I recently came to know he has been writing a blog. I managed to read only 1 post till now and the very first post is amazing. I’d to share with […]
