Two months ...

Difficult to maintain a blog when you have so many occupation :)

What's happen during this two months ?

Some trips in les Alpes (skiing) and in London (this city is fanstatic ... if you are rich).

I have finished some books of my personnal mba :
- the unwritten laws of business
- the design of every day things (I am a big fan of it).
- the four hour workweek
I'm reading Making Things happen about project management which is also excelent.
I'm very happy to have discovered personnal MBA and the recommended reading list.
So far they are very good and i'm learning a lot.

I have also read a french book named "Back-offices et marchés financier". The first part explains what is a back office and the second part explains the interest, problems and risks of back-office. This second part is mainly based on the exemple of Baring's case who was sunk by one trader. Written in 1997, he explains the importance of back offices to avoid financial crisis .... yes like the one we are living now.

For personnal project, i have put aside Voxel. I have send questions to the writter of the best paper without response at this time. With all my reads, I have now a good comprehension of the subjet but sadly not enough precise to build my own voxel world.

In fact, I have found more practical interests :
Web marketing and business.

I will explain it in my next post.

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 : 
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…
