Software Development

The day-to-day work in software development is work that requires a lot of brainpower. It involves high cognitive demands and skills in which perception and attention play a special role. The problem with this is that the way people think can be distorted. A distorted way of thinking leads to thinking traps and consequently to mistakes. Anyone who has mastered a few perceptual-psychological basics can adapt their way of working and especially their programming style in a way that avoids thinking traps and recognises mistakes more quickly.

Projections for (large) agile projects

Picture Steffen Albrecht

Interim and completion forecasts are just as important in large agile projects as they are in traditional projects. Unfortunately, the Scrum Guide is no help at all here and classic methods are inadequate in most cases due to the complexity of the requirements. However, simple statistics and a transparent estimation method can be used to arrive at a reliable forecast. I will explain how this works in my blog post.

Methodology

Agile approaches are now very widely accepted. Scrum is often used as a framework and fixed events (meetings) are specified, among other things. Projects in the insurance industry often employ an agile approach, too. Despite that, employees and stakeholders sometimes harbour prejudices. I used to be project controller in a previous life, during which time I was involved in an agile project and was confronted with prejudices at the beginning. In my blog post, I would like to talk about prejudices and my own practical experiences regarding agile approaches based on Scrum.

Architecture

Microservice-based architectures are a current trend for transforming information systems. But how can these architectures be implemented? The most commonly used solution is Camunda's BPM engine. In my blog post, I show you how this solution also enables microservice choreography.

UX design for projects without a UX designer

Picture Eva-Maria  Kynast

Not every project has a UX designer. The requirements engineer is often asked to perform a kind of dual role – ‘they can do that little bit of UX as well, no problem’. I’d like to use this post to expand your UX horizons a little to help you understand the basics and possibly highlight a few important points to consider when designing software solutions.
