Interesting Reads 3/15 - 3/21

A fairly diverse set of reads this week from agile development, to being a better programmer, to some cooking related things. Lots of good info in these, mostly short, posts and articles.


Why Agile is failing

A great read on holocracy. One of the highlights for me, "Dysfunction happens any time somebody can't do something because they need permission, or won't do something because they're afraid of some repercussion."

The corruption of agile

"Don't burn yourself out to be a better programmer"

7 years of culinary science

No one knows what they're doing. Favorite quote: "The good news is that this makes you very not dangerous. The bad news is that it also makes you feel dumb and helpless a lot of the time."

Making technical decisions. Really interesting talk by Sarah Mei.

Sandi Metz's most recent talk slides. Can't wait to see the video!

  1. That is a really good collection of articles! Read and enjoyed one. The talk by Sarah Mei seems like the kind of thing I might share at work. :)
