STAR – Software Talent Academy Romania

STAREvery once in a while, no matter how devoured by the daily dynamics of software development we get, we feel the need to turn to the present, to the communities around us. In the end this is where all those belonging to the big 1&1 Romania team come from, right? And if that is the case, wouldn’t it be ok to scan and scrutinize time and ask ourselves who our future colleagues are; who are those who may come work along our side in a few years?

Together with Scoala de Valori, 1&1 Romania has asked itself this very question. And they joined forces in starting an initiative that would target teenagers with a passion for software development.

ShipIT Day @ 1&1 Internet Development – eCommerce Department Romania. From idea to practice

ShipIT Day @ 1&1 Internet Development. From idea to practiceThis is how the event started and this is what we’re expecting for its outcome!

Long history short…

The Ship It Day concept has been designed by Atlassian to give its employees the chance to work on anything that relates to the company products and deliver it during the 24 hours of the event. This came from the necessity of fostering the creativity, proving a different opinion, moving faster and increasing the work environment attractiveness.

Hmmm… seems familiar… and even more, we’re thinking that it also helps strengthening the teams and increasing the quality of the collaboration.

What makes a project Behavior Driven?

This article is a guest post written by Alex, an Independent IT QA Consultant, with over 6 years of experience, specialized in infrastructure, telecom, defense and security.

Having been previously exposed to the Test Driven Development (TDD) practices at the beginning of my career in IT QA, the ancestor of current BDD practices, I have had a first-hand experience with the ups and downs arising from a poorly managed requirements development process and learned not to put expectations very high in regards to initial system architecture at a certain scale.What makes a project Behavior Driven

Agile Management & the four types of trust within a team

When trust between business partners disappears the business may very well disappear too or, best case scenario, the partners may break up and follow different roads. At first, the one who suffers is the performance of the team and the debates will be shadowed by suspicions and assumptions.

Jurgen Appelo in Management 3.0 has a theory on how many types of trust exist within a team (source http://www.management30.com/).
In a few words there are FOUR:
– Trust in your own person that you can make it;
– Trust in the same level colleagues;
– Manager’s trust in the team members;
– The trust of the team in the manager;
Which is the most important one? Which one should never disappear?
I believe they are all equally important and should be treated accordingly inside any team.
From the manager’s point of view his trust in the team disappears (or has already disappeared ?) when he starts playing the policeman, implementing tracking and controlling actions.
The team will respond in its turn with the same suspicions, embracing a more circumspect and reserved position.
How do we get here? Stress, insufficiently trained managers, teams that never reached the norming stage.

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

My first grasp of the toxicity level for a project template was many years ago, during a meeting (which, taking into account the fees of the participants, wasted more than 2000 Euros per hour), its topic being the template (with capital T) about to be used for gathering some trivial piece of information. Should we keep the X area? It doesn’t seem to apply in our case … I say we should; if it’s there, we might need it. Let’s leave it as it is and we’ll figure out what to write there. And so on and so forth, hour by hour. No wonder this type of experiences make the practitioners want to run away (when can we work if we sit in meetings all day long?) only when hearing about project management. The problem is that the opposite – anarchy – is just as bad as a strict setup.

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.
