A Check List for Knowledge Transfer

13.06.2017   
Sooner or later, you have to deal with the task of project acceptance or transfer. To do that efficiently, I follow my own check list, so as not to lose sight of anything and make it in such a way that the customer or project owner would not notice the change of teams.

10 things you didn't know you could do with the Oracle database

23.06.2015   
In the world of enterprise software development we can see a steady tendency in moving business logic from the database tier to the application tier. Many factors influenced this, but the main one, in my opinion, is portability. Modern applications must be able to work correctly on different operating systems, desktop and mobile devices, support interfaces with dozens of upstream and downstream systems, and, of course connect to different databases. For portability Java is, de facto, the number one programming language. But  databases have been here for ages, they are being transformed and adopted for enterprise architecture and  enhanced with lots of useful features.

Instruments and financial markets

12.05.2016   
In order to understand the types of financial instruments and how they work it’s important to first of all understand the different types of financial markets out there. Some financial instruments can be traded on certain markets while others can be traded on more markets provided they are adapted to the specific requests of each one.

How to measure performance in Java applications?

08.07.2015   
Performance is an important criterion each software application should meet and each architect should have in mind when designing and putting in place non-functional requirements. Sometimes it becomes really hard to tune and improve a mature and complex application especially because the performance might be influenced by a lot of factors.

The Agile Testing Manifesto

02.05.2017   
At one of my trainings someone asked me a question, "How can testers survive in an Agile environment?" The training, by the way, was dedicated to quite a different topic, but the issue seemed to be very sensitive. I think we can find some answers to that question in "The Testing Manifesto" compiled by coaches Karen Greaves and Samantha Laing by analogy to the famous Agile Manifesto.

Bash Operators in Linux

22.08.2016   
Although Linux Distributions provide a Graphical User Interface just like any other operating system, the ability to control the system via the command line interface (CLI) has many benefits. A way to control how tasks are executed or how input and output is redirected, can be done using operators.

Working in different time zones

14.09.2015   
Nowadays a lot of software development teams are globally located which means that project managers have to learn to work with people who live in different countries and cities. Each country tends to have its own work calendars and holidays, cities can be located in different time zones and all this means a lot of challenges when it comes to coordinating a team.

Writing a simple analyzer using Roslyn – part 1

04.01.2016   
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. People from C #/VB compiler teams did an excellent job of "exhibiting" the compiler’s guts, which now allows us to write our own code analyzers, spending quite a reasonable amount of effort on it.

Best practices when conducting a technical interview or a structured one

28.01.2016   
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.
