What was revealed in a twitter discussion before is now official – twitter decided to move back the frontend rendering from the browser to the server again thus removing the hashbang (#!) in URLs. This is quite a big architectural change.
All done for performance reasons.
Just recently another one of our development projects has started. This time the development team decided to follow scrum. As the one responsible for this project on the customer side I wanted to allow for the team to have good working experience to achieve an effective project.
Thus I became a product owner. With all the usual obstacles.
A friend of mine once described most developers (mind you, not all) to be rather cynical people that tend to know everything better.
And I thought about if this was true.
At work I am currently looking at the services of Plista, a German company providing interesting new advertising formats. Nothing really new but still interesting. Unfortunately they don’t offer a simple trial without getting in touch.
Yesterday I had this idea about doing a conference talk about decoupled code from a clients perspective. Maybe other things too. Because when something matters to the client it should matter to you too.
Here’s a start.
Google announced to roll out its new so called knowledge graph the center stone of its things, not strings initiative. Will this establish their search application even more in the market?
I guess so.
Just recently I was faced with the problem that one of our services did not deliver at all. The data somehow got missing on the way so I had to check every point on the way the data is flowing to find out where it failed.
It would’ve been quicker if the only error message I received would have been correct.
In the past few days I had my eyes on some of our mobile projects that we currently run. Like in so many web projects before I detected a lot of common factors and unfortunately a lot of common missing informations.
So I decided to create a checklist.
In my company there are four development teams each with different clients and there is a an architectural team to support them. For the last few month this architectural team is developing a real website that will become the prototype for all websites.
To me development seems less attractive now.
