Personnal MBA

I have begin to read some books from the Personnal MBA.

First was getting things done. An interesting method of every day work and life management.
You can manage this method with Google notepad !
The best thing I have learned so far is to clean my mind of "open loop" and note everything.

I have read the book "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion" which describe six common things in people psychologie. Like PersonnalMBA says :
Knowing these natural psychological tendencies will help you in two ways: (1) you'll become more persuasive, and (2) you'll be able to identify when these tendencies are present, protecting you from being misled in the future.

I am now reading "how to win friends & influence people" and my next books will be :
The unwritten laws of business, the design of every day things and Making things happen.

I am an addict :)

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…

Hébergement d'un blog !

Bon il y a maintenant plusieurs semaines, j'ai lancé un blog sur l'expérience utilisateur (ux-fr.com) : hébergement sur le serveur gandi d'un ami, wordpress 2.8, un thème courant mais correct et les plug ins indispensables.

Bon déjà le site était affreusement lent et enfin tout est tombé depuis une semaine impossible de relancer le wordpress.

80% de chance que ca vienne du site en lui même mais qui à tout refaire (j'ai quand même les articles normalement c'est déjà une chance énorme), j'aimerais faire cette fois un choix efficace, robuste et rapide.

Le prix n'est pas vraiment le problème (enfin jusqu'a 100 euros par an, j'ai pas encore 10 000 visiteurs par jour). Par contre, je veux quelque chose qui ne demande de perdre du temps sur la partie technique.

Niveau site, je pense que le mieux est de rester sur du Wordpress donc je cherche un bon hebergeur pour du php/mysql ce qu'il y a de plus classique.

Je suis ouvert à des propositions innovantes par e…

Summary of 'Words are windows, Introduction to nonviolent communication' by Marshall Rosenberg

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…
