My links of the week – January 12, 2014

Here are my choice of links for the past week.

  • Software Development:
    • Tim Bray’s Software in 2014 provides an interesting analysis of the software development scenario, both server and client side as we enter 2014.
    • Shivprasad Koirala’s SOLID architecture principles using simple C# examples presents and exemplifies, in a simple away the application of the SOLID architecture principles, using C# as the implementation language.
    • David Budgen’s Design Patterns: Magic or Myth? describes an attempt to find an answer to whether design patterns are an effective way to exchange design knowledge and whether they help create designs that are simple to understand and maintain. The perceived reply, specifically to the second question, is not that clear.
    • Neil Potter’s Scrum Lessons from the Trenches tries to address some of the challenges facing Scrum application by project teams.

That’s it for this week. Thanks for reading.

My links of the week – December 22, 2013


Here are the most interesting links I read or viewed during the past week.

  • Software Development:
    • Allen Holub’s OO as a Prerequisite to Agile discusses the need to have a model based approach to be successful implementing Agile, the benefits of using such an approach and some of the pitfalls that may result otherwise.
    • Mark Levison’s A Tale of Two Daily Scrums reminds of the Daily Scrum’s goals and the need for it not being a simple checklist, but being about team collaboration. It includes links to several other interesting articles on the daily scrum.

That’s it for this week. Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays.
