This is just microblogging, a small mention, in my last post regarding
Enrique Comba an Insitute for biocomputation and physics of complex systems,
I just discovered I can reference in wordpress titles people names,
and they’ll get a mention in their timeline.
Obviously this only works if you have wordpress associated with twitter.
I know, that MAKES completly sense, It’s just I’ve never seen anybody doing it.
We had Enrique comba at institute for biocomputation and physics
of complex systems this thursday.
I had to say it was an interesting experience, we were talking about his
interesting filosophy (enterprise filosophy), and programming metodologies,
mainly, I had interest in the following:
- Paired development.
- Pair exchange, each 25 minutes.
- Using VIM with screen for paired development =)
The last one is obvious why I was interested in it, as a fervent VIM user,
and console entusiast.
Pair exchange each 25 minutes was the best idea I’ve heard in a while.
It allows all your partners to have knowledge of all the projects in the enterprise,
and keep going, keep without loosing any interest in the project.
If you were already using pomodoro for tasks in paired development,
shouln’t be too hard to adapt to this new method. As soon as I have a
chance (wich may be never, but nvm) I want to try it.
And paired development allows you to discuss things, talk, and so on without being really distracted (you know, while you develop, you’re going to talk about work, just that). I tend to speak even being alone while developing, it really helps me concentrate, and with more people, it’s kinda… more confortable and less awkward than alone
