From belly to brain: Turning gut feelings into explanations using Kanban

As someone who has worked in delivery for a while I have come to trust my instincts and know when certain suggestions aren’t going to help a team to deliver. But you need more than instincts to be able to explain situations clearly to your clients. Thanks to a recent Kanban training course I now have the language and solid examples backed by theory to do just that.

When life gives you lemons… you throw a party

I’ve heard numerous tales about the famous Red Badger summer parties, and this year I was lucky enough to not only attend, but also take on the challenge of branding the weekend. The Badgers and their plus ones were flown off to Malaga for a weekend of music, massages and mojitos.

Why Pipeline as Code is adding value.

This forms part of the ‘Everything as Code’ evolution, enabling the same code repository to not only describe and implement the required functionality (through source code), but also how this functionality will be built, tested and deployed to production systems.

What's Infrastructure as Code (IaC)?

Infrastructure as Code (IaC) refers to the definition and management of IT infrastructure (e.g. networks, virtual machines, load balancers, firewalls, etc.) in a declarative manner, i.e as source code. Declarative IaC has the powerful property of immutability: one particular set of inputs (i.e. version of source code) will only ever produce one configuration of infrastructure.

It brings all modern web platform features provided by Chromium and the Blink rendering engine to the command line. Other browsers have followed suit, with Firefox now offering a headless mode as well.
