Top 2000 vlog workshop impressies

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/14

Voor mijn link archief: [WayBack] Matijn Nijhuis op Twitter: Tof: vlogkijker @aadtje vlogt terug <3 https://t.co/RDHnGSsfmF

Na de intro volgden meteen zijn belangrijkste tips:

  • Houd het simpel (geen dure shit)
  • Doe waar je geod in bent
  • Eén volg is geen vlog (vlog liefst elke dag)
  • Kies 1 mentor
  • Kijk gerust af maar kopieer niet
  • Beloof niets
  • Laat anderen je werk doen

Is the era of management over? | World Economic Forum

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/12

Hopefully the next few years will finally show what the incremental software development and evolutionary management has been trying to advocate since the late 1950s and 1970s: hierarchies do not work and purpose works better for the vast majority than being in a triangle.

The first slide below is from Thoughtworks who has been doing these changes for several decades now.

Traditional hierarchies are giving way to more open and creative workplace cultures.

That’s the only way to cope with complexity as talent dilutes in growing organisations.

Lever je oude apparaat kosteloos in bij bol.com en wij verwerken het op een milieuvriendelijke manier. Zorg ervoor dat het klein elektrisch apparaat geen vloeistoffen en vetten meer bevat. Verpak het tot een stevig pakket en vermeld het bestelnummer van je nieuwe artikel in de linkerbovenhoek en onderstaand adres:

jessie frazelle on Twitter: “Hire the people who will automate themselves out of a job, then just keep giving them jobs.”

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/31

This is what DevOps is all about: [WayBackjessie frazelle on Twitter: “Hire the people who will automate themselves out of a job, then just keep giving them jobs.”

I had seen the tweet before, but forgot to save it. Jonas Bandi reminded me of it at [WayBackWeekend Reader: End of Year Edition – reality-loop.

Jessie is doing great work. For instance, she developed and published contained.af, and nobody captured the flag yet: [WayBack] jessie frazelle on Twitter: «A year ago I made contained.af and it’s launched over 128,000 containers & no one has retrieved the flag».

The game runs in a container, gives you console access and has a bunch of questions. Still need to dig deeper in it, as it is a fascinating set-up. If you like to try it:

Wishing you a year where nobody captures your flags (:
