Run as Fast as you can, to stay at the same Place….

Posted in programming, Uncategorized at 2:59 pm by evangelista

Jeff Atwood has a really nice post on the speed of changes in development technologies.

And i know the feeling, that you are learning and reading really much, but you stay at the same lvl, because the technology is changing too fast.
But beside of the technology, or the current hype there are so much other things outside, that helps you building your software (like coding practises, types, ideas, abstraction,…), and these are not changing. and im far away of knowing all the stuff.
Something like once half a Year i’m spending some time of reviewing all the things i’ve done and learned the past half and looking for things i want to change in this process….
Yes, we’re having a fast changing Job, but also because of that i like it sooo much and theres so much room for improvement, that i’m not really messing about staying at the same place….

Bozo Explosion and their Preventions

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:01 pm by evangelista

Guy wrote a nice post about the Bozo Explosion at Companies and how to identify and also how to prevent them.
and Scoble has also some good additions to it.

its really hard not to get into this points. its easy to drift into them. even in an small company.
but if you get over them maybe once half a year and think about how to steer against them, i think you dont get into problems…
