Creating a Secure Deployment Pipeline in Amazon Web Services

Tracking Agile Velocity

It’s very common for organizations to track the velocity of the Agile teams over time. This is quite a reasonable datapoint to plot.

An open source JVM Sampling Profiler

It's a well known deficiency of most existing sampling Java profilers that their collection of stack traces has to happen at a safe point. A while back Jeremy Manson open sourced some proof of concept code where calls are made to the AsyncGetCallTrace JVMPI method which avoids the need for threads to reach a safe point in order to read their call trace. I've taken this code dump and started converting it into a usable open source project.

Compensation Strategies for Agile Teams

The key challenges around compensation, at least for me, center around figuring out how to reward individual performance without encouraging internal competition, local optimization, or one person feeling rewarded while another feels punished. You want compensation to motivate people, not to have a negative impact on performance.

Getting so much better all the time!

Agile software development is not about productivity; it’s about working well. Yes, I think there are potential gains in productivity for most teams. Even then, the bulk of the gains are from “maximizing the work not done” rather than becoming more efficient programmers.
