Here is my latest post for Simple Programmer…
Recently, I conducted an experiment with my team.
This experiment was challenging enough to make even some seasoned developers sh*t their pants.
What experiment did we run? We stopped branching our code, we threw away code review, and we started pushing directly to master.
Recently I’ve been training for a long cycling event.
The event is a three day event where we will cycle around 70-100 miles each day back-to-back.
It’s very much an endurance event and for all my adult life, I’ve been a strength athlete competing in strength sports that are maximal exertion. It couldn’t be much more of a polar opposite set of skills.
