useful things


More and more in my career I have to come to appreciate the following:

  1. Making work as small as possible but no smaller.
  2. Working together; in an ensemble/mob.
  3. TDD.
  4. Trunk-based development (with short-lived feature branches)
  5. Minimal CD.
  6. Treating people as human beings; be kind and candid.
  7. Trust.
  8. Focus on user needs.
  9. Having fun.
  10. Exploration and learning over following a detailed plan.

Get these things right in your engineering team and almost anything is possible.
