    The Value of the Retrospective Meeting

    James Nagy - 455 Article rating: No rating

    ​The retrospective meeting is one that everyone thinks they want, but often times people don’t actually do.  It’s extremely important though, after you do something big, to pull everyone back together and ask, “What worked well? What needs improvement? What should we never do again?” The difficult part to having a retrospective meeting is doing it in a way that really stresses that the point of the meeting is to grow and improve and not to blame.

    Life or Death Software Development

    James Nagy - 298 Article rating: No rating

    When people hear the term software developer, they probably don’t think of a career that involves individuals holding people’s lives in their hands.  The reality is though that for some who are writing software, it could mean life or death.  Consider things like autonomous software for Tesla –mess that up and it could mean death. Drug to drug interaction checking –this can also cause death.  There is definitely a difference in writing software for video games vs writing software that flies airplanes. We are going to hope that that is one that absolutely needs to be right.

    The Business of Negotiation

    James Nagy - 936 Article rating: No rating

    ​When building software, there are many times that you will be negotiating with other companies or clients.  Negotiation is a business within itself. If done properly, it can really benefit you. If done improperly, it can really hurt you. Negotiations will come up in countless areas of development.  For example, when developing software you may be negotiating with a company for the honor of using their own software inside of yours.  This type of deal is a mutually beneficial one.  My company will get the benefits of your software to add value to mine, and you will get money from every transaction that transpires or set of software sold. If you can negotiate properly, so that everyone is satisfied, it’s a win-win.

    Technical Debt is an Opportunity for Improvement

    James Nagy - 1583 Article rating: No rating

    People love to talk about technical debt.  They love to tell each other to “work smarter, not harder” and not to double your work by speeding up development today knowing you’ll have to change it later.  The thing is that people call this debt, but it isn’t.  You have made the best decision that you could at the time.  In development, you have to make compromises along the way.  When you decide to do a feature in a particular way, and you’re going to have to change it later, yes it is more work.  But, it’s also done for now.  The feature is out the door right now.  Instead of considering it debt, consider it an opportunity for improvement in the software.
