About

I have a lot of things to say about the software development profession. Like, it isn’t a profession. I was recently at a meeting of Microsoft MVPs. They could not agree on whether a unit test only applied to a small unit of code, or whether it could apply to a larger, integrated set of code.

I have put a lot of effort into improving software development. We have a lot of challenges ahead, and we are coming from far behind. In my experience, many people who call themselves software developers aren’t. I also wonder why an organization that increases its productivity by a factor of two using Scrum doesn’t need fewer developers. Where are the cost savings?

Our society is becoming more complex as our population rises, technology advances, and something weird is happening to the weather. Software holds many of the answers for holding things together. Plus, it is the last scalable resource.

My blogs may be edgy, full of unproven opinions, sometimes unsubstantiated, and critical. Some of you will find them useful, even enlightening. For everyone else, the blogs aren’t written with you in mind.

Scrum on!!!

  1. Few people have a mind of that and this;abstract and association with confirmation. I do believe that the power to be have found an application to twist cognitive to behaviorist paradigm by using Systematic persuasion induction by education media & technology as well Heuristic persuasion via social networks. Only a select bread is able to tip point and interpret one self’s controlled cognitive direction. You must be unharnessed from the mass persuasion and it’s virtual Acceptance of thought. This is my understanding.

    Ken Your Scrum and Agility methods are a eye opening direction, with an affirmative action, and are the base tact principals of the Visionary leader process…….. I like your style.

  4. As an traditional infrastructure guy too lazy to learn anything more than enough simple scripting to get my job done, I am now trying to figure out the best way to turn my infrastructure into code. I have read a bunch of books, had some exposure to chef, am trying to learn ruby, and am working on understanding scrum and the way of thinking it represents. I really want to do this right, which to me means simply having a good direction to help me focus my efforts. I am hoping you can enlighten me on your idea of what a software developer really is, and possibly provide some pointers and guidance as to a path to reach infrastructure as code, continuous integration, and where to go from there.
