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…

Le développeur incompétent est un mythe

Sous ce titre complètement arbitraire et très clairement provocateur, je vais passer un contre pied aux derniers articles que j'ai lus sur le métier de développeur.
Par exemple :

http://blogs.codes-sources.com/tja/archive/2011/10/04/etre-un-bon-d-veloppeur-c-est-aussi-une-question-d-attitude-personnelle.aspx 
Ça tombe bien c'est juste avant la soirée du Paris JUG sur le métier de développeur ! Et comme on se plaint que les présentateurs ne sont pas de vrais (?) développeurs, je vais en profiter pour donner mon avis.

Alors voila, d'après ces articles, un bon développeur connait ses fondamentaux.
Ok soit mais quelle est cette liste de fondamentaux ? 
Chez certains, c'est les maths et l'algorithmie pure, d'autres c'est C++ par coeur et savoir retourner une chaine de caractère en moins de 3 instructions et une seule allocation mémoire, d'autres c'est Java JEE, ses 100 jsr et frameworks in…

Behaviour Driven Development at Zenika

I have assisted to the Zenika's conference about Behaviour Driven Development given by Mauro Talevi from Agilesque.

The presentation was mainly decomposed in 3 parts : Introduction to BDD, Presentation of JBehave (the API used to do BDD in java) and return on experience about a real project.

Introduction to BDD.

BDD brings together Test Driven Development and Domain Driven Design by
- describing behaviour is a better form of testing
- describing needs from from point of view of it's stakeholder

BDD relies on the use of a specific language to help communication between the business, developers, testers, analysts and managers. It improves presentation.
Behaviours are described by scenarios with a why ? the value, a who ? the actor and the what ? the feature.
BDD introduce a grammar of steps GIVEN a context, WHEN there is an event, THEN produce an outcome AND do other steps.
BDD offers step parametrisation, aliases for changing language or tabularisation for changing parameters for a give…
