The Accidental Standard

As groups and products grow in size and complexity, it's common for people to use their best judgment when making decisions. This trust is a vital olive branch in team building and group dynamics. But as time marches on, accidental standards are created. An accidental standard is a method, process, or expectation set without explicit recognition by those involved.

Feature-based development

Recently we changed the way we were working on JS Bin. Instead of pushing new features whenever it took my fancy – which could result in success or equally some kind of breakage – we’re now pushing new features under feature flags and it’s proving to be really quite powerful (and fun).

Fluent Interface for More Readable Code

Code confusion and complexity is a problem in most software projects, and we can clearly see this in enterprise projects. The reason for this confusion might be fast and unplanned developing, poorly-designed structure and undefined architecture. But we have to know this. Code is inherently complex.

Automation: More than saving keystrokes

My point here is not to put down the DevOps tools. Instead, I want to point out that how these tools are used is important. If you view tools like Chef or Ansible as a means of cutting out keystrokes (read: pushing config), then you are likely missing the point of automation. What these types of tools are really trying to do is much more profound.

The Programmer Productivity Paradox

If the average programmer writes about 50 lines of production code a day. A 50,000 line program would take 1,000 man days to produce. The 50,000 line listing can be entered by a programmer at about 1,000 lines a day or about 50 man days. So what the heck are the developers doing for the other 950 days?
