Gérer notre énergie, pas notre temps

En parlant de passion et de notre travail de développeur, je pense que cet excellent article "manage your energy, not your time" peut apporter des éléments à la question.

 J'aime aussi beaucoup à la fin de l'article ce passage :
The implicit contract between organizations and their employees today is that each will try to get as much from the other as they can, as quickly as possible, and then move on without looking back. We believe that is mutually self-defeating. Both individuals and the organizations they work for end up depleted rather than enriched. Employees feel increasingly beleaguered and burned out. Organizations are forced to settle for employees who are less than fully engaged and to constantly hire and train new people to replace those who choose to leave. We envision a new and explicit contract that benefits all parties: Organizations invest in their people across all dimensions of their lives to help them build and sustain their value. Individuals respond by bringing all their multidimensional energy wholeheartedly to work every day. Both grow in value as a result.
On est très loin du constat du développement en france : http://www.monde-diplomatique.fr/2011/05/SENE/20458

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://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…

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…
