Interesting links

Random collection of links I’ve found recently:

  • Competing on the Basis of Speed - very inspiring talk by Mary Poppendieck, it made me order their (her and Tom’s) book (“Lean Software Development”).

  • Scrum and XP from the Trenches - the best article on Scrum I’ve seen. It’s very practical, down to earth and all the examples are based on a real project, not some ideal, simplified scenario. Read it now.

  • One of my New Year’s resolutions is to learn a new programming language. I decided to give Ruby a try after I found this guide. I’ve only started reading, but love it so far.

  • As you can read here I dont really like Singleton pattern very much. Alternatives you can consider are Enapsulate Context and Monostate patterns. As a bonus: my take on the subject (from my old engine).
