You'll always remember your first time...open sourcing

Have you considered opening sourcing any of your work? It might seem daunting, but in reality it's not all that difficult. Here's a brief introduction based on my first open source experience.

Story time

Let me tell you a story about stories.

As more organisations move toward an agile way of working, user stories are increasingly being used as the preferred technique for capturing requirements.

Get Baking

On a roll - our client releases their second project to open source.

As the number of AWS accounts a team uses increases, so does the headache of access and credential management. Identity accounts can help. We called ours Bakery.

Automatically Compliant

Wouldn't it be great to not worry about compliance?

Compliance is a thing. A big thing in most big organisations. Meeting compliance obligations, whether they are based on regulation, code of conduct or risk, can be arduous. Fortunately, automation can help!

It's Showtime!

Time to show what you've got

Showcases are part of the regular Agile development cadence. However I’ve worked at organisations that are ‘Agile’ yet don’t do them. Despite its name, showcases can have greater benefits than simply showing work.

DevOps, Deindividuation and the DeLorean.

Trent Hornibrook theorises that the "us"/"them" culture in some organisations is a symptom of the social psychology concept 'Deindividuation'.

There is much written about the changing roles of Development and Operations staff when organisations undergo agile/devops transformations. But what about the changing role of the Team Leader?

In pre-agile environments, as a Team Lead, your role is one of structure and co-ordination, it is through you that work routes. You know the skills and capacity of your team and are regularly making decisions about what can and can’t be done.

You might find yourself asking “Do we need Team Lead’s in an agile/devops culture?” and If so “What value can I provide?”
