Just stop for a moment

I know there are deadlines in front of you that need to be met. They are the reason why you keep writing code. They are the cause of your lack of time - you are running from one deliverable to another, trying to deliver as fast as possible. Trying to deliver with the highest quality possible.

Refactoring vs. Redesign

It often happens that developers use words Refactoring and Redesign interchangeably. Why? I think that is because in both cases we are ending with the same result - code that is changed, but it does exactly the same thing as it was capable of doing at the beginning of the process.

Yet, in my opinion those words are not exact synonymous and before we will start to refactor the code it is good to know the difference.

Market spoiled us!

It’s been too long since my last article. During this time I’ve changed my job, were on couple conferences, conducted some trainings. I was pretty active. I just didn’t have too much time for writing. However, each conference and training is a possibility to talk with many various people and that results in plenty of ideas for future articles.
Ok, let’s move forward.

Today I want to share with you some observations regarding the state of the IT industry. Recently I’ve been thinking about it quite a lot. And the more I thought, the more convinced I was about my suspicions - the market spoiled us!
We are getting too confident, harsh and demanding. We are getting lazy in a bad way. And we're getting less and less attached to the things we do.

Pair Programming to the rescue once again!

Some time ago I wrote how pair programming can help keep high quality of the code. But that’s not all!
Today I want to explain why you should practice pair programming to onboard a new joiner. It makes the whole process faster and more efficient.
