What are the characteristics of a good software engineer? It’s a topic many people would argue endlessly about. This is not surprising given we are effectively living in the era of software alchemy.
Software development has evolved a lot the last decade. Developers are not considered code monkeys any more. They’re expected to write clean and maintainable code that continuously evolve with business needs. Some times they need to work remotely in dynamic and multi-cutltural environments using a variety of technologies and programming languages. Nevertheless they still want […]
Evolving the software architecture of legacy systems for unintended use is difficult. The architectures are not documented well, the team that built the system has often moved on, old and out-of-date code is permanently intertwined, and the technology trends of the present are dramatically different from when the system was first developed. This is the […]
Serverless architectures have been touted as the next evolution of cloud-hosted software. Indeed, the promise of resiliency and scalability without the need for infrastructure management sounds too good to be true! But what exactly does a serverless architecture look like? And what are the trade-offs to weigh up when considering using one on your next […]
Software developers keep looking to CQRS as a software architecture to boost performance. But the more I work with companies the more I discover there’s a sweet spot where Theory of Constraints, Kanban, CQRS, Domain-Driven Design, EventStorming and UX blend together to solve ‘the really real problems’. Once you’re there, a land of opportunities ready […]
