Daily Stand-Up Meetings Are a Good Tool for a Bad Manager

Javalobby Syndicated Feed - Sat, 24-Jan-15 00:00
A stand-up meeting (or simply "stand-up") is "a daily team-meeting held to provide a status update to the team members", according to Wikipedia. In the next few paragraphs, I attempt to explain why these meetings, despite being so popular in software development teams, are pure evil and should never be used by good managers.

The Rise and Fall of the Black Box Developer

Javalobby Syndicated Feed - Sat, 24-Jan-15 00:00

I guess that I first started to think about the following concepts when I read James Donelan’s post “Can Programmers Program?“. In that post he elaborates on some statistics from coding tests perform by developers applying for jobs. Those...

File Uploads Using JSF 2.2 and Java EE 7

Javalobby Syndicated Feed - Fri, 23-Jan-15 23:30
File uploads have long been possible in JSF, usually using third party plugins like PrimeFaces or RichFaces. JSF 2.2 finally adds support for file uploads out of the box. The practical reason for this lag is that the JSF specification has always chosen to support a Servlet version one behind the latest. This is what often makes it possible to use newer versions of JSF on older runtimes,...

The question was basically “Would joining a startup be a mistake for someone with the goals of stability and career progression?”. The questioner then defined stability as being able to support a family and have nice things...

Use Copy Paste Programming!

Javalobby Syndicated Feed - Thu, 22-Jan-15 23:30
Copy paste is badWe hate copy paste. Why? Because the result code is unmaintainable. I get a bug reported from QA, I analyze the code, look at logs, debug, drink a lot of coffee and finally I get to the code that is the root cause of the bug. I fix it, test the use case, release new code to learn next day that a very similar bug appears in a similar use case. In that case a different code runs...
