Webinar: The Surprising Truth About Speed at Scale

After more than 20 years working in the software industry, 10 of which coaching engineering organizations on their Agile and DevOps journey, Yael Rabinovich, a SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) Program Consultant and Partner at AgileSparks, will share her experience and present a number of ways that accelerate value delivery at scale. While these ways may look simple at first, they are not easy to implement. Yael will discuss challenges organizations face and the way to overcome them while sharing stories and case studies from international organizations such as Intel, Alcatel Lucent, Motorola and more.

A Beautiful Day For Unit Tests

Writing unit tests on Legacy Code is an adventure. Today I spent several hours doing that with two developers, Mark and Yelena.

The system has a flow you are used to and when you write code you fit it into this flow. Then you test the entire system.

With unit tests, it works differently. You are required to start the flow from the middle and stop it when your deed was done.

This requires a different level of system understanding. When we started off in the morning we looked at the code and thought “how are we going to harness this?”

Legacy Code: Extract-FirstUT-Cover-Refactor-TDD

Recently, I had the opportunity to work on legacy code with several teams from various organizations. I would like to share my experience.

We usually start by choosing a piece of code that is “painful”: changing frequently and “scary” to touch because of its complexity. We explain that our purpose is to make the code simpler, readable, and easy to change. Establishing the motivation for what we do is important!

Amusement Park Methods

Sometimes you stumble upon amusement park methods.

Remember the feeling when first going through the gates of a big amusement park? When you get a first glimpse of how vast it is? you see some rides close by and in the distance, you see the tall roller coasters. That’s the feeling I’m talking about.

You start scrolling through the method. Just to understand what’s before you, you want to see how long it gets. You scroll and scroll and it goes on and on, and you start to go faster but it never ends. As Louis and Clark tried to find a path through the Rockies to get to the Pacific, you are making your way through this monstrous method, this fantastic creation.

Time To Reorg – An Intro to Refactoring

Organizations reorg all the time. And again. Why do they do that? Setting cynicism aside, organizations reorg to adapt to new realities, to new demands. A team of 5 people that grew to 20 people needs to split to smaller teams. A business group dealing with a fast-growing market needs to come up with a new strategy to cope with the demand. A startup of 20 people will need a different structure than that of a company of 100 people. As business demands change there is a need to adapt the organization’s structure.

Reorg is an expensive venture, yet organizations do it again and again. Because they have to do it – they have no choice.

Values, Principles, and Practices

The concept of process improvement has been around for quite a while. Many methods have been defined to conduct and pursue improvement. Then why isn’t everyone already an expert at it? We seem to never lack “improvement” content as if it’s fresh, and exciting-which it’s not. Maybe that’s because so much of what’s been espoused hasn’t worked. But why? Hillel Glazer examines several long-held assumptions about process improvement, proposes plausible flaws, and reveals new levels of understanding that have allowed breakthroughs in performance. Hillel looks at what happens when there’s too much focus on practices, when the underlying principles aren’t honored, and when basic values aren’t internalized. We see too much arguing over practices instead of working towards results; worrying about “compliance” instead of moving forward. What’s the relationship between values, principles, and practices, and why does it matter? Hillel explains it all in this compelling, entertaining session.
