You know I wouldn’t have it any other way @thomas, and Jade wouldn’t have wanted it either 🙂
@yogidevbear We really need to have a sit down again, just so I can explain it slowly.
Actually I’ll write a blog post….. it’s a fitting tribute to ClojureX and SM .
for LDN confs, we have XT20 happening next year https://xt20.tech/. It's not a solidly focused Clojure conf like ClojureX, but it's something 🙂
From looking at that website it appears to be some sort of steampunk cosplay thing?
Apologies if Alastair Taylor (recruiter) has been sending folks unsolicited DMs about his job opening. He'd already been cautioned for posting his job ad in both #jobs and #jobs-discuss He has been deactivated. Why are so many recruiters so clueless about community etiquette? 😞
I like them less and less, the more I interact with them. I've known a handful of good ones across my near-four decades of IT but they are depressingly rare. Mike Dearing in the UK was one of the ones I loved working with, back in the 90's.
god that fintech company sounds terrifying > We are building the first digital bank for friends. A bank that will intuitively connect your personal finances and all the people you interact with, making money as social as your life.
did anyone see the Monzo report on Watchdog the other week thought that was interesting
sounded like they were having problems scaling up, and would rather alienate the customers than the banking regulator
I'm not directly affiliated with them, but always have to shout out recworks as the good guys in a sea of pretty bad guys when it comes to recruiters.
@ben.hammond https://twitter.com/JackKleeman/status/1190354757308862468 << When you see that you can understand why Monzo have scaling problems 🙂
Microservices = "The network is the least reliable part of any computing infrastructure and we are not relying on it enough"
If you add enough microservices the network begins to take the shape of a neural network. Thus the individual microservices adapt in real-time. The network being unreliable just acts as a form of dropout.
To be honest, I suspect it's not really a great idea though. It might work for them in the sense that they can make it work, but a lot of me just thinks it is a way to absolutely enforce decoupling by making sure you really decouple stuff.
"You can't couple these two services if they are at the opposite end of the data centre!!"
Pretty sure I read somewhere that there is meant to be a blog post to accompany that image above at some point
Oh, everybody on the management side of agile worships Toyota. I am not even sure if it is the real Toyota, more like some imaginary, utopian Toyota.
At eBay we used to have this, "stop the presses" thing which was apparently a "Toyota innovation". It was essentially a veto over anybody doing anything, so we could have a meeting. If somebody spotted some kind of inefficiency and improvement they could call a "stop the presses" and everybody would have to stop and discuss how it could be solved. Pretty soon it was these interruptions that were the biggest efficiency problem.
Don't get me wrong, I actually loved working there, but there was definitely some mad stuff.
Also it was in Amsterdam, where... it is apparently entirely normal for people to just pack up and FO half way through a meeting if they are getting bored. In some ways kind of cool, but really takes a bit of getting used to.
I've come across that being called the "law of two feet" - not Toyota, but also not uncommon
It's actually quite a good idea. It does force you keep meetings short, relevant and with the right people in attendance (rather than inviting everybody under some social anxiety that somebody might feel, 'snubbed'). It's just really odd to experience it the first few times if you are not used to it.
@conor.p.farrell I did not know this. It is entirely possible somebody used that phrase but it didn't stick in my head.
