Best practices when conducting a technical interview or a structured one

When you are in a managerial role you can seldom say that you don’t have enough to do: analyzing various areas, developing business plans, setting goals, monitoring performance, solving conflicts, making decisions, coaching subordinates etc. No wonder your schedule is so busy and the pressure you feel becomes an addiction. Of course, there is always something to do when it comes to managing people or projects and it’s perfect as long as you love it.

The learning rule of thumb in 2016

In 1896 Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto stated the 80-20 rule, a rule that has been adopted ever since in a variety of environments. It basically says that 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. Or, to put it in other words, 20% of the investment you make generates 80% of your revenue

Writing a simple analyzer using Roslyn – part 1

With the release of a new version of Studio (VS2015), each of us gained an opportunity to feel involved in the development of tools for developers.

Testing strategy – what should it contain?

A testing strategy is a relatively small static document that precedes the test plan. Before you write a lengthy and detailed plan you must first formalize some basic approaches to testing and ensure that all stakeholders understand what will be tested and how they will be tested.

Fixie – Testing by Agreement

Some time ago I came across a tweet that someone I know started using a new open-source testing framework Fixie and was very pleased with it. He was so happy that he even decided to revise all of the tests in the current project for the new engine. After this, I just could not stand by and had to look at what this thing is, and why it makes others happy.

Overview of C# 6.0

There have been a lot of articles written about the new features of C # but I also want to contribute with a few of my own which I believe are important.

What are soft skills?

Whenever we talk about project management in particular and management success in general we have to talk about one of the fundamental terms – soft skills. Soft skills is a collective term that refers to a set of behaviors that help people work and socialize successfully. In short, soft skills are good manners and personality traits needed to interact with others and build a good relationship with them.
