Thales, what ?

I have worked one big year at Thales Service and I was so disapointed.

I have worked on two very interesting project on paper : a radar system and a combat management system for a frigate.

Technically they were, at the best case, moderately good. Sometimes awfull.
But the worst was the "political" decisions ruining the progression, the quality and motivation of people working on this project.

So when i see this : www.moonshield.com ... I want to cry or laugh, your choice.
Maybe, instead of doing 'serious game', Thales can do 'serious project' ?

And when you go here, www.jobs.thalesgroup.com.
You can see the marvelous work of marketing and advertising. You can discover different careers at Thales ... and yes you can see, there is only one people who produce something (although it is mostly a searcher). The others are manager.

And you now understand the problem. They put no interest in project development, in software engineer and, with only managers, you can't do good project in your firm. You can only do outsourcing. But maybe it's the goal of Thales ?

I will come back to Thales when I will be a manager :)

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…

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…

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://patricelamarche.net/2011/05/24/lincomptence-des-dveloppeurs/ 
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…
