en: Card, Conversation, Confirmation (a.k.a 3C’s)

Index cards are a great way to keep track of new ideas for a software product. The good thing about them is because they are limited. You can’t get all information into one. And that’s a really good thing. Trust me. Back in 2003 when I started learning eXtreme Programming, I’ve heard of a storyContinue a ler “en: Card, Conversation, Confirmation (a.k.a 3C’s)”

en: The Lean Startup Experience

I saw an infographic asking if we are getting into another “dot com” bubble. That infographic was built by Udemy, great job.

But, sometimes people call me using SkypeContinue a ler “en: How to disable pop-up notification for Skype on Mac OS X”

Oração, com uma pequena adaptação… :-)

A sensação do momento é ouvir A Banda Mais Bonita da Cidade, e a infinidade de clones dos vídeos deles. Depois de um papo que rolou na empresa eu comecei a pensar em uma versão para a música. Então eu fiquei pensando em como mostrar alguns conceitos de Métodos Ágeis usando a brincadeira da música.Continue a ler “Oração, com uma pequena adaptação… :-)”

Spike Solutions – Why the world would be better if development teams use this as a default

When teams want to build new features in a software, what do they do? Well, some teams I know, they plan. They build a big plan. BIG means at least 50 pages of non-structured text and diagrams that don’t say nothing about the real problem. And they do meetings! After two months, they have aContinue a ler “Spike Solutions – Why the world would be better if development teams use this as a default”

en: That’s it. SSDC is the name — Scramble Software Developer Certification classes! Here I go!

en: What would you do to change someone else’s world for better? Inspiration and effect!

Sometimes I see people saying that they don’t need to do anything to improve the world they live in, since they do their part, paying taxes. Some believe that government needs to take action. I have another opinion about it, and as far as I know, lots of people have another opinion too. In summary:Continue a ler “en: What would you do to change someone else’s world for better?
