Some years ago, every backend engineer wanted to be doing microservices. There was absolute hype. A vast majority of the market joined the microservice bandwagon without previous expertise in SOA. Some companies were successful. Still, several companies ended up in the worst place they were before. Therefore we see the…


The DORA DevOps Report 2021 is out. Thats a very interesting report about DevOps and SRE covering 32K professionals over the world during the COVID-19 Pandemic time. We are in difficult times and having this data is very very interesting. IMHO We lose the battle, like Agile but at the same time, the report shows some interesting findings which always gave me hope. I have read this report since the beginning and always find it interesting and super useful. Today I want to do something slightly different, I made a video commenting on some of my thoughts on the report. I hope you guys like it, so let’s get started!

The Report

Shape up is the new Basecamp book(former 37 signals). It’s about product discovery. A book is a form or flavor of Dual Track agile.

Tickets! Some people love them others hate them. I for sure dont have much love, however, I can see both sides of the same coin. There are lots of tracking systems such as Bugzilla, Track, Jira, GitHub Issues, and many others. There are companies with complex workflows with lots of…


Some technical problems can get quite challenging. It’s pretty common to feel like you dont know how to approach them or even panic. Especially if you are starting on technology. Even the most accomplished and experienced feel the impostor syndrome. IMHO if you do not panic is already 90% done…


From trait in Rust allow types to be created or converted from other types. From trait is used in the rust standard library. It’s simple and yet effective. Is common to see From used with Into. However today I want to focus on the From trait. Thinking about coupling point…


Rust is rich in sense of types. You can create your own structs and use generics. Rust even allows you to create a type alias. IMHO type alias is useful for 2 reasons. The first type alias makes the code more readable since the type alias can make the intention…


Java is the backend solution for several companies, mainly for services and microservices. However, when you need to ship java for a CLI or DevOps solution java is a bit verbose. First, because you need to have a JDK, and second java by default is not self-contained. Meaning you will…
