Our paper, Non-Scrum Implementation: A Methodological Approach for Small Companies, was accepted at the conference 18th European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies, aka ECRM19.
Although I already talked about this before, I think it worth mentioning – I talked before about Chaos Monkey and the Simian Army, but there are actually some interesting principles around Chaos Eng actually worth mentioning.
It is the discipline to run several tests on production in order to make it robust and foresee issues – the first is basic for any scientific experiment. This has started on Netflix, but it’s quite interesting and now has spread all over.
The main principles are the following ones:
Build a Hypothesis around Steady State Behavior
Vary Real-world Events
Run Experiments in Production
Automate Experiments to Run Continuously
Minimize Blast Radius
I think for large scales application, those kinds of tests are very important and even Forbes made a report about it. Minimizing the blast radius of the issues that the system might face is quite an interesting highlight here.
I didn’t read it but it’s on my reading list: Chaos Engineering – by Ali Basiri, Nora Jones, Aaron Blohowiak, Lorin Hochstein, Casey Rosenthal
I started to work in Toronto some months ago with Java and it’s quite interesting.
I can’t say if it is better or worse than Montreal, it’s quite different though, because in Montreal I used to work in Python.
I miss Python sometimes, very very flexible. So cool.
That’s not my first time working in Java, my master was implemented in java, my honour thesis as well, and at All App start up I worked with some java android also. But, this time I’m working with JVM very specific tuning, EAP, and JDG, so then the framework changed and the city too.
I remember starting developing my own tools, like some python scripts like Mazeltov and stop with the issues. So this time, for Log Helper I have created a Design Doc, following what Techled suggested – btw, he is very funny.
There are many good templates for Design Doc, and Angela Zung is able to describe here very well some details about it – though I might disagree on the comedy part though.
I think this model here is very to the point, but seems almost like a read.me kind of thing.
This reference here, from Klariti.com, is the one I’d think it’s the complete solution. Too big for a small script as Log Helper though.
