  • Organizing over Organization

    In the coming years we will see less organizations, but not less organizing. Organizing is a daily activity to get things done, but we don't necessarily need organizations to do things. When individuals are subordinate to the organization, it's an inhibitor for adopting modern management approaches.

  • Applying Sociocracy 3.0 Patterns for Implementing Agile Practices

    Sociocracy 3.0 is an open framework which supports collaboration in agile organizations and helps them to continuously improve products and services. The framework provides patterns for activities like coordinating work, effective meetings, governance, and building organizations.

  • Better Estimations Using Techniques from Psychology

    Bias, priming, and salience are the main psychological factors that influence our ability to estimate. Knowing what happens psychologically when we estimate, and using techniques from psychology, helps us to deal with those factors so that we can improve our estimations argued Joseph Pelrine, social complexity scientist and PhD researcher in psychology.

  • Deliver Shippable Products with Good Engineering Practices

    Good engineering practices are the tools that help agile teams to deliver shippable products. Although many engineering practices have proved to be effective, they are not as widely used as they should be. Agile anti-patterns like the software testing ice-cream cone, accumulating technical debt and functional silos prevent teams from delivering a potentially releasable product.

  • Azure Logic Apps Reaches General Availability

    On July 27th, Microsoft announced their Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) offering, Logic Apps has reached General Availability (GA). The GA release includes additional management support, telemetry events, alerts, and consumption-based pricing.

  • Microsoft Updates High Availability Guidance for Cloud Apps

    Microsoft has released an updated checklist for high-availability (HA) scenarios in Microsoft Azure with guidance on how to design and manage solutions that use VMs, websites and storage, in cases where great load is expected intermittently or consistently.

  • What Programmers Can Do to Write Better Code

    To write better code, programmers have to apply design fundamentals and read existing code, says Martin Thompson, a Java Champion and high-performance-computing specialist. InfoQ interviewed him after his Engineering You talk at QCon London 2016 about the challenges that the software industry is facing and what programmers can do to deal with those challenges and become better software engineers.

  • The Past, Present and Future of Enterprise Integration

    The way companies use integration technologies have changed significantly during the last 10 years. It will also will continue to change the coming 10 years, Senaka Fernando claimed in his presentation at the recent QCon London conference when describing his view on enterprise integration the last 10 years, todays situation and what he believes the next 10 years will bring.

  • Anti-Patterns Working with Microservices

    The main problem with monolithic applications is that they are hard to scale, in terms of the application, but more importantly, in terms of the team. The main reason for a switch to microservices should be about teams, Tammer Saleh claimed at the recent QCon London conference when describing common microservices anti-patterns and solutions he has encountered.

  • Programming Patterns in Go

    Peter Bourgon has recently presented Successful Go Program Design, 6 Years On at QCon London 2016, discussing patterns to use or anti-patterns to avoid when programming in Go.

  • Azure Logic Apps Preview Refresh Released

    The Microsoft Integration Product team recently provided their first update since the Integration Roadmap that was released back on December 24th. On February 24th, 2016 Microsoft has announced the public preview of Logic Apps Preview Refresh.

  • A Pattern for API Backends Serving Frontends

    The web experience through a mobile device differs in many ways from a desktop version with its smaller screen, limited data plans and need for fewer requests. A mobile device also requires different data and may provide other interactions, e.g. with a bar code reader. One solution is to have one API backend for each type of client, a Backend For Frontend (BFF), Sam Newman explains in a blog post.

  • Microservices and Integration from an Enterprise Perspective

    Common misconceptions in large enterprises that Kim Clark meets are that microservices are fine grained WSDL operations or that APIs are microservices. A reason for this is that they are confusing interface granularity with component granularity, Clark claimed in a presentation at this year’s Microservices Conference in London.

  • Redux: An Architectural Style Inspired by Flux

    Redux uses a unidirectional data flow similar to Flux, but it has a single store which is changed by cloning the original store and applying some functions without side effects. There is no Dispatcher.

  • Microsoft Azure Event Hubs Surpasses 1 Trillion Transactions in a Single Month

    The Microsoft Azure Event Hubs messaging service processed approximately 150 terabytes and 30 billion messages per day, or 375 000 messages per second, in June 2015, according to the Microsoft Azure Service Bus product team.
