What’s the degree of PMP and Agile within a project,(Part 1 of 2)

What’s the degree of PMP and Agile within a projectIf by Project Management Professional (PMP) we understand a la carte project management we now have the question of the century!

But what’s the difference between them to begin with?

I’ve asked myself this question a while ago, when preparing for a combined course (Agile and PMP), and was surprise to find myself lacking any convenient answer. I’ve searched the internet and found an interesting distinction between them: while PMI is a standard, Agile is a framework. You may find the complete article here: Difference between PMP, PRINCE2 and Scrum/Agile.

A night at the … theatre

A night at the … theatre

A night at the … theatre

No, unlike the Queen album, we didn’t go to the opera … we chose the next best thing – the theatre.

But let us first disclose the unknowns:

“We” – stands for the executive staff team, plus one guest from another team, which remains undisclosed for confidentiality purposes; 🙂

“Theatre” – the play “Dragostea dureaza trei ani”, beautifully performed by four talented actors at Café Godot.

Now let’s start with the beginning.

Java User Group edition #9 at 1&1 Internet Development

JUG edition 9

JUG edition #9 @ 1&1 Internet

This is a guest post written by Eugen Stan, BJUG member.

BJUG #10 is closing in fast. In less than two weeks we meet again, and get another chance to find out new stuff about new and exciting technologies, but more important about each other. That is the reason why we, Andrei and Mihai, started JUG Bucharest almost one year ago and that is the reason why I constantly remind people to share ideas and get to know each other better.

I’m a strong believer that people drive things forward, and that technologies, frameworks and programming languages are just tools.

JUG 10 looks popular, but it still has some catching up to do before it reaches the same popularity as JUG #9, which managed to fill the 100 places conference room from the 10th floor at 1&1 Internet Development.

An untold story of impediments

The untold story of impediments

The untold story of impediments

Once upon a time there was a beautiful forest. Trees were growing vigorously all around, spreading their seeds and nourishing the soil with their leaves every autumn. Birds and animals were living happy, sheltered under the canopy of branches.

Till one day when a new tree started to grow inside the forest. But that was not something new, you might say. Yet, the new tree was not a usual one – it got bigger with every day, casting a thicker shadow over its surroundings until it was clear to the entire forest that its size and appetite were extraordinary. Leaves of the trees around this greedy one started to turn pale, withering more and more. Around the big tree was growing a larger circle of emptiness, as he was spreading his branches to capture all the sun and all the rains, leaving nothing for the others.

The New Year Brought the New 1&1 Help Center

The New Year Brought the New 1&1 Help Center

The New Year Brought the New 1&1 Help Center

Last December, our team celebrated (this calls for a beer! :)) the launch of the biggest update of the new Help Center, thus marking the decommissioning of the last old components in the system. In 2012 we managed to completely rewrite the help center to take advantage of the latest software technologies. This was a big project and we had a lot recruiting for our team.

Actually, we doubled our team, and I feel that we somehow rebuilt it as a whole around this project. We all grew attached to different parts of the Help Center, and we tried to make the most of what we really liked. That is why we managed to make so many improvements that reach through all aspects of the project.

The new architecture we’ve designed has increased reliability, a reduced dependency to other systems, and enhanced internationalization support.

Being Agile is a trip, not a destination

At a first glance Agile development framework seems simple, attractive and effective. Most probably that’s why a lot of software companies have embraced it as a path toward their success, but as simple as it may look, being agile is not that straight forward. Being a framework, not a standard, there is always the need to fill the empty spaces with processes and tools that fit the organization and the business goals. That’s why we invite you, dear reader, to accompany us on a journey throughout the Agile Manifesto, taking each principle that is stated in this valuable document and looking it carefully through the eyes of the Project Management Office of
