So it’s been a busy few months but as always nice to be back blogging again, lots of things backed up to post
Been a while 😉 Awesome article from Hanselman
A well written concise overview of AI/ML and IoT:
Maintaining the PDP
The professional development plan (PDP) is great to have but you can’t just file it away some where. It’s a living document and needs to be maintained and tweaked . It’s great if you can discuss it with your manager in a regular 1:1 catch up.
To me the key with looking After your PDP is to make sure you are regularly ticking off items in the 30 day list. It’s great that you accomplish the medium and Longer term items but to me the importance is the focus on the next 30 days.
Ok that’s it, hope you’ve enjoyed these posts on PDP’s.
Really really great article about the use of SCRUM for single person projects:
Huge thanks toRibit, CiT, Canberra Uni and ANU for having me present the Xero vacation program at Get Connected Canberra #2. Neha Sood (Grad Developer – Xero) came along with me, and we did some really great micro interviews with Students.
I got to provide a 30 sec brief on Xero and out vacation program for Software Engineers and we then spent around 90 minutes doing mini-interviews
Was a really great night and met a bunch of sensational students interested in coding.
For any students who attended who are interested in learning more about C#/.NET check out lots of articles/links on this site as well as a bunch of other cool websites for .NET learning resources including: http://www.asp.net and http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/
One of the coolest game jams going around:
OK if you follow this blog you know by now how much I love Scott Hanselman and it’s no surprise that he’s written another great article on one of the dark areas of Software Development: Burnout
I’ve seen it too many times, where great Engineers just get fed up with the daily grind of needing to deliver. As Scott says some times we just need to drop everything and take a break.
