· Agile Zone

Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (May 23 to May 30). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. When too much coding can kill you.

Well it's true: too much coding can kill you, the real question is "what is the reason?" and the answer to that is; Chronic Stress.

2. Identifying the PLOT in Software Design

Parkinson's Law says that "organizations give disproportionate weight to trivial issues." This statement later became known as Parkinson's Law of Triviality, or PLOT. Although Parkinson was referring to organizations as whole, over the years this problem has become a pervasive issue in software development.

3. Developers: The New Kingmakers

Technology changes have moved developers, previously of little importance within the world of IT, to a central direction-setting role within companies.

4. Adjustable standing desks should be mandatory

If you want a vibrant and dynamic engineering culture, standing desks are a must. I view them as fundamental to a programming team as decent workstations and SSDs.

5. Real employee value goes beyond what you produce

Would you rather be known as the person who does a lot of stuff that is almost right? Or the one who nails every deliverable?

Discover the warning signs of DevOps Dysfunction and learn how to get back on the right track, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.
