Summary of 'Words are windows, Introduction to nonviolent communication' by Marshall Rosenberg
“Words are windows” is an introduction to non violent communication (abbreviated as NVC). Marshall Rosenberg presents in this book the process that allows us to communicate more serenely with others as well as with ourselves. This mode of communication allows us to become more and more caring, authentic, and empathic with others. It can therefore be used in all interactions of everyday life: as a couple, with our children, at work … NVC is proving to be a very effective way to manage conflicts, and also to better identify our own needs.

At the source of Non Violent Communication NVC has 4 four key components:
Observation – specific facts/data, no evaluation/judgmentFeeling – state how we feel (many failure modes here)Need – the need underlying this feelingRequest – must be specific action to address need
First we observe what is really happening in a given situation. These observatio…

Summary of 'Clean Architecture' by Robert C. Martin

Summary of 'Clean Architecture' by Robert C. Martin
Uncle Bob, the well known author of Clean Code, is coming back to us with a new book called Clean Architecture which wants to take a larger view on how to create software.

Even if Clean Code is one of the major book around OOP and code design (mainly by presenting the SOLID principles), I was not totally impressed by the book.

Clean Architecture leaves me with the same feeling, even if it’s pushing the development world to do better, has some good stories and present robust principles to build software.

The book is build around 34 chapters organised in chapters.
Programming paradigm After some introduction, there is an overview of three paradigm of programming:

structured programming which imposes discipline on direct transfer of controlobject oriented programming which imposes discipline on indirect transfer of controlfunctional programming which imposes discipline upon assignment

Uncle Bob tells us that each of these paradi…

First year of MOOC

Happy new year,
This post will be in English contrary to the previous one because I want to talk about Massive Open Online Course. It was my main occupation during my free time doing as far sa 4 courses in parallel.
My first and main learning plateform was Coursera.
I began with "Functional Programming Principles in Scala" in Sep 18th 2012. A great course to learn functional programming by Martin Odersky, the creator of the Scala language himself, and maybe one of the best course I have done even if it's one of the most difficult, needing a lot of time and motivation.
In programmation, I have also done "Algorithms, Part I" from Princeton. Again a difficult and time consuming course with no certification at the end but the content is great if you want to learn algorithms and java performance tips. I will try to do the 2nd part this year.
"Introduction to data science" was a good introduction to Data Science. I have learned the basic component of Data …

Quel est le rôle de l'architecte logiciel ?

Michael Stiefel donne dans sa présentation "Architects? We Don't Need No Stinkin’ Architects!"  une définition du rôle de l’architecte logiciel que je trouve très intéressante et pas uniquement parce qu'il l'associe à la prise en compte de l'expérience utilisateur ;)

La présentation est en elle-même excellente (la définition de l’abstraction en se basant sur la peinture moderne par exemple) mais je vais surtout revenir sur les points qui m’ont marqué :
L’architecte n’est pas obligatoirement le meilleur développeur car son rôle dans une équipe n’est pas le même. Le rôle de l’architecte est de transformer la vision de l’expérience utilisateur en une abstraction correcte : l’architecture du logiciel. L’expérience utilisateur dépasse le domaine de l’UI et doit couvrir l’ensemble du logiciel.Il insiste sur le fait que prendre en compte la facilité d’utilisation permet de pousser l’unité du design et son intégrité conceptuel ou, dans l’autre sens, une intégrité conc…
