I’ve worked in a couple of different scrum teams, one I even served as a scrum master. There was one common point among all these teams, the scrum master was always or at least used to be a software developer. Then I joined my latest scrum team last summer where our scrum master is a product analyst.
Three laws of objects. Sounds catchy enough? To me, it did. I read about these laws in Ken Pugh’s Prefactoring.
If you sense a not too much-hidden reference to Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics from I, Robot, it’s not a coincidence. It’s the author’s purpose.

You might have noticed that I don’t just read technical books. In fact, at least half of the books I read are non-technical. A couple of months ago, I found a great deal on Amazon and I could get Ryan Holidays’ Perennial Seller for less than 3 bucks in the e-book version. Will it be a perennial seller?

One of my favourite hobbies is reading. Even as a father of two small children, I try to find some time every day to read either before the others wake up or after they went to sleep or sometimes at lunchtime on the bank of a nearby creek.
I think I’m better in time management than the average, so to further improve this skill, I went to a time management training of John B. May. It was a one-day training about how we should reconquer our own job, how we should make sure that not others control our daily work through constant interruptions.
In one of my previous articles, I wrote about Scott Meyer’s Effective Modern C++ and that with its focus on C++11/14 it’s like discovering a completely new language. I already wrote about trailing return type declaration. Now it’s time to review what usages you might have in C++ for ampersands (&).
In his first book, Ramit Sethi shares his own vision about personal finance. It’s not just yet another book on how to spend less and save more money as he doesn’t believe in a frugal life. Besides, he doesn’t just share his two cents but he also gives some practical procedures and scripts to follow.
