Don’t know if midlife-crisis hits me hard yet – or something else – but now I’m officially a student again. It’s (nearly) the same course of studies as twenty years ago and if I read the module handbook I find a lot of similarities. But as I said – 20 yrs – a lot of time, a lot of changes and I’m really a little bit afraid of the things to come.Continue reading “At the university… again”
“The final delivered product should contain the sources, all needed dependencies and the documentation on how to build the system.”
Continue reading “Compile as requirement”
Frequently this or something similar could be found in the requirements without a proper description what is really wanted and is often misunderstood on both sides. And sometimes it is dangerous as well.
Today someone asked if I’ve got Backups of every piece of code i’d wrote. Intimidating question and of course not. I’m sure I’ve got zipped backups of the last sources for some older ones but in most cases a backup of the VCS for the important projects. Somewhere the CVS for the ugly LaTeX things called Diploma thesis too.Continue reading “Lost Backups”
And again… I had three very good days in Munich at conference. Very good conversations, lots of presentations and fun too.
Sometimes strange things could be nice too – I’ve got an invitation from a consulting company to join an evening where practices for IT service management should be applied on the example of ‘grilling a steak’. Sounds funny. Service management is not necessarily my topic but meat in combination with fire -of course- is.
…just basics. I believe my first encounter with JBoss as application server was in 2003 and most projects before where done with Apaches Tomcat. Nearly one or two years later – and with a little bit more experience with Java Enterprise – the JBoss system became the preferred app server by me and the tool of choice (in cases where I’ve got the choice).Continue reading “JBoss EAP 6/7 Administration and Development Training Days”
I’m on my way to the RoadShow and expecting much fun with some other guys working together. In some aspects the current openshift is still a little bit confusing (compared against v2) and not in productive use (here). So I’ll hope to get some nice inputs and discussions at the event.
Today I’ve got my results of the ITIL® Foundation exams after three days of training (more or less ;-)). Someone told me it improves my understanding of IT service management but I fear the upcoming paperwork 😉
And as always three very nice and helpful days for me. Learned a lot, really 😉 And it just started with the finger in the wound (as it should be). The first keynote “It’s a small world afterall” was held by Sander Hoogendorn and is (fortunatly) available online
What a sunny saturday morning! Just leave the family at home, take the bike and go to … a coderetreat! What? I’ve got the invitation to “work” this saturday (april fools day) from a friend some weeks ago and I must say I don’t regret it. The definition of a coderetreat is:
Coderetreat is a day-long, intensive practice event, focusing on the fundamentals of software development and design.coderetreat.org
At 9 o’clock nearly 20 developers met in the (really nice) offices of a game company in Berlin to start practicing with just one goal: implementing the “Pacman”. Continue reading “coderetreat @ gameduell”
