Take The Scenic Route

Yesterday was a really hard day at work. Lots of meetings, tough topics, lots of stress, lots of frustration. So when I went home, I didn’t take my usual route, but decided to exit the highway a bit earlier than usual and drive through the forest.

When they’re done, they’ll take their completed work and show it to their boss, who will look it over, and set a “hard date” for delivering the project. There will …

It makes me cringe every time I see developers use PHPMyAdmin to administer their databases, even more if its a local database. This is a relic from the old times when people used it with their remote servers since desktop applications did not provide remote access functionality yet. Here are just a few things you …

After all, when there are features to ship and clients to satisfy, taking the team off such projects so that they can rewrite what already works is seen […] The …
