Go pick a leaf of that tree!

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/24

Still a very good (Dutch) read by mentor (not only Agile, also DCI and Marching) Robby Overvliet [WayBack/Archive.is] Go pick a leaf of that tree!:

Ben jij Agile? Weet je het zeker? Tuurlijk het whiteboard hangt en de stickies schuiven vrolijk van links naar rechts. Dagelijks is daar netjes de standup en andere feedback loops doen hun ding.

One of the cool things is that he learned a lot from Charlie Anderson, that I recollect from the Borland and Quattro Pro days. What a smal world (:

On Charlie:

Ten Commandments For Naming Your Code

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/23

Be clear, be consistent, don’t be clever, and follow these rules for naming your code.

[WayBack] Ten Commandments For Naming Your Code investigates these:

  1. Thou shalt be specific.
  2. Thou shalt not use unnecessary words.
  3. Thou shalt not use abbreviations.
  4. Thou shalt use the code’s primary human language.
  5. Thou shalt not make up words.
  6. Thou shalt not include type.
  7. Thou shalt only use non-obvious words if the meaning is obvious.
  8. Thou shalt prefer active voice.
  9. Thou shalt use consistent syntax.
  10. Thou shalt break these rules if necessary.

Delphi Exception handling code review reminders

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/18

I bumped into [WayBack]When an exception is nil in the exception handler – twm’s blog for some legacy code a while ago.

Some code review reminders:

  • raise Exception( is always wrong: no exception instance is created
  • Exception.Create( without a raise is wrong most of the times
  • except end is almost always wrong
  • except and finally in encompassing blocks often is a code smell

I need to check which ones are caught by [WayBack] Code Analysis Tool | FixInsight for Delphi (which is not at [WayBack] TMS Software | VCL, FMX, ASP.NET, .NET controls & components for Delphi, C++Builder & Visual Studio | TMS FixInsight Pro.)

Being efficient actually holds you back

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/16

A while ago, over some period of time, I found a few related posts on being efficient optimising time management, on both professional and personal levels. Fully going the “optiomal” usually isn’t that a good thing.

Basically, you need slack or idle time. Plenty of it. That improves your agility too.
