Don’t sell me agile, solve my problem

A wise, retired CIO told me, “Don’t sell me your solution, solve my problem.” That statement further solidified my belief that I am not “implementing agile” (hang with me), but rather I am solving a problem or a set of problems that commonly occur in enterprise environments.

How (Not) to Create a Permgen Leak

The code snippet is rather straightforward, iterating over a loop and generating classes at the runtime. When facing an Error, the code above is well prepared to catch it and print out the stacktrace. Apparently, the situation is a bit more complex than this - half an hour later I found myself still staring at a somewhat different error message. I

Creating a Secure Deployment Pipeline in Amazon Web Services

It’s very common for organizations to track the velocity of the Agile teams over time. This is quite a reasonable datapoint to plot. Combined with other data, it might give you some insights when you look back, and insights based on data are typically more useful than insights based on opinion. Remember, though, to keep in mind what the data is, and what it is not.

I've taken this code dump and started converting it into a usable open source project.
