VisualChannel. Better presentations

VisualChannel. Better presentations | Interesting posts | Scoop.it

The common approach these days for post-bullet-point presentations is to use photographs. I've derided this by saying that stock photos are the bullet points of the 21st century. By this I don't mean that photos are always wrong, but they often seem to be very unconnected with the speaker's words. I get the impression of many hours spent crawling the internet for some photo that tenuously goes with the talk. (And please, if you use photos, make sure you credit the photographer.)

Modern Principles in Web Development | Atlassian Blogs

Modern Principles in Web Development | Atlassian Blogs | Interesting posts | Scoop.it

I’ve been kickstarting a bunch of small web apps lately. It seems like every time I start a new project, theres’s always something new that causes me to adjust my development principles. I thought it might be good to take a snapshot of what’s “in” today. I like to think of web development phases starting from idea to delivery… all of it backed by strong principles of how to build great apps.

PageObjects - selenium - The Page Object pattern represents the screens of your web app as a series of objects - Browser automation framework - Google Project Hosting | Interesting posts | Scoop.it

Page Objects


Within your web app's UI there are areas that your tests interact with. A Page Object simply models these as objects within the test code. This reduces the amount of duplicated code and means that if the UI changes, the fix need only be applied in one place.

fogus: 10 Technical Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice)

fogus: 10 Technical Papers Every Programmer Should Read (At Least Twice) | Interesting posts | Scoop.it
Inspired by a fabulous post by Michael Feathers along a similar vein, I’ve composed this post as a sequel to the original. That is, while I agree almost wholly with Mr. Feather’s1 choices, I tend to think that his choices are design-oriented2 and/or philosophical. In no way, do I disparage that approach, instead I think that there is room for another list that is more technical in nature, but the question remains, where to go next? In this post I will offer some guidance based on my own readings. The papers chosen herein are not intended to act as a C.S. hall of fame, but instead hope to accomplish the following:

All papers are freely available online (i.e. not pay-walled)
They are technical (at times highly so)
They cover a wide-range of topics
The form the basis of knowledge that every great programmer should know, and may already

A VC: The Management Team - Guest Post From Joel Spolsky | Interesting posts | Scoop.it

Very few company founders start out with management experience, so they tend to make it up as they go along. Sometimes they try to reinvent management from first principles. More often than not, they manage their startups the way that they’ve seen management work on TV and in movies. I’ll bet more entrepreneurs model their behavior on Captain Picard from Star Trek than any nonfiction human.

The Trello Tech Stack - Fog Creek Blog | Interesting posts | Scoop.it

Trello started as an HTML mockup that Justin and Bobby, the Trello design team, put together in a week. I was floored by how cool it looked and felt. Since Daniel and I joined the project to prototype and build Trello, the challenge for the team has been to keep the snappy feeling of the initial mockups while creating a solid server and a maintainable client.
