I also collect awesome links, speak here and there, write a newsletter. Ah! I participo a Espetech Cast.
A sad but realistic starting point for everything we do: Things can go wrong and will go wrong.
The minefield of software development
More often than not, we build software based on hope.
Marginal gains: In favor of continuous improvement
We overestimate what we can achieve in a short period.
Embracing unknown unknowns
Once upon a time in 1869, a Russian scientist named Mendeleev was obsessed with ordering all elements present in nature. The typical Russian scientist obsession.
Blundering your software
Software development is like a chess game.
Be predictable, my friend
There are many virtues a team can show. But I’ve come to realize that it boils down to this:
Software development, autonomy, and constraints
Autonomy is good.
Challenge your assumptions
The status quo is dull.
You say slow
I've been told I was going slow in every project I ever participated in.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
The goal of software development
Why would anyone give money to me to type weird stuff on a computer?
Ron, the shoemaker
You either make shoes or you build software.
Back to Basics

All power to the Teams
Some random thoughts about software development teams

Rethinking Agile... for all business?

Front-end Testing and a tale of three users
How should we think about UI components when testing them?
And that was a good thing.
Three ways of telling if you are not problem-oriented
Are you solving problems or just developing software?
Creating a culture of testing
Let’s say you are sold on the idea of testing. You know it’s important, but you find it hard to sell it to your team, your managers, your colleagues. Why is that?
Testing API calls in Vue applications
...or how to test async behavior using Vue Testing Library.
Are you preparing a talk? Here, take this uncommon tip
It was about time.
Your company is not your family
And that’s a good thing.
t3chfest is one of a kind. It is a tech conference, obviously, but some things make it different from the others.
What are some myths that you believed prior to becoming a software engineer?
So, here’s the list of myths that I believed a long time ago.
Neural networks: The apocalypse is (almost) here
AlphaZero has become the ultimate King of the gaming Artificial Intelligences. The algorithm, developed by DeepMind (a.k.a. Google), beat everyone at everything.
Your opinion doesn’t count
Ahh, the Internet. You gotta love the Internet.
When we think about the future, we tend to focus on things that will likely change. We like progress, shining new things.
On Microsoft, Internet Explorer, and Chromium
Everyone has an opinion about the topic — So why wouldn’t I?
Learning in public
CSS: In defense of !important
!important isn’t bad and you shouldn’t feel bad — if you know how to use it

I’ve been working in the web industry for 10 years now. Does it make me a Senior Developer?
Getting [someone] to do [something]
Have you ever tried to sell something to someone?
Agile is dead
…long live agile?
