Videos that describe Spotify engineering culture #mustWatch | It's a digital world | Scoop.it
Here's part 1 of short animated video describing our engineering culture (here's part 2). This is a journey in progress, not a journey completed, and there's a lot of variation from squad to squad. So the stuff in the video isn't all true for all squads all the time, but it appears to be mostly true…

Farid Mheir's curator insight, May 7, 1:30 PM

Amazing two 15 min videos describing the engineering culture and organization of teams at spotify. In a nutshell they give team full autonomy to deliver products all the way to production, thus eliminating the possible excuses that one can have for not being able to reach their targets. AMAZING structure and video. Must watch.

 

And this does not apply only to startups. Established companies should consider re-organizing their teams based on the agile principles that spotify puts forwards. The projects that I see failing or suffering from delays and bloat in large companies I see around would be in much better shape if they implemented similar structures....

Spotify is one of those rare companies that "gets it" and is willing to employ cutting edge technology to advance its services.

Mobile: The Universal Technology Product via @a2z | It's a digital world | Scoop.it

In this update of his past presentations on Mobile Eating the World — delivered most recently at The Guardian’s Changing Media Summit — a16z’s Benedict Evans takes us through how technology is universal through mobile. How mobile is not a subset of the internet anymore. And how mobile (and accompanying trends of cloud and AI) is also driving new productivity tools.

 

In fact, mobile — which encompasses everything from drones to cars — is everything.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, November 26, 2015 2:57 PM

According to Isaac Sacolick, digital "transformation is a mindset." Sacolink says "it's about looking at business strategy through the lens of technical capabilities and how that changes how you are operating and generating resources."  Collaboration, cooperation, planning, leadership, and continuous education are key factors in surviving this new age of digital technology.  Sacolick adds that it's important to have a practical business mission that encourages "out of the box" thinking".  CEOs must believe in the concept and provide the tools necessary to help employees exceed expectations.  Aloha, Russ.

Biometrics is coming fast. The reason being that everyone now carries the sensors and advanced processing units in their pockets, readily available in their smartphones. Facial recognition with the front camera is a given since you already have your face in front of the phone while performing the transaction. But how easy will it be to spoof? Will it be enough to hold a photograph in front of the camera? Most probably not. Interesting to follow this development.
