Careful — What You Measure Is What You Get 
“You cannot manage what you cannot measure” is a common mantra of today’s business world. But to really make a difference on projects, you also have to make sure you’re measuring — and communicating — the right things. 

Putting Employees Before Customers “The customer is always right,” is a familiar mantra to many customer service-focused businesses. But is it true? Sometimes, customers are unreasonable or even abusive. What do you do when one of those unruly clients has faced off with an employee?
Fight the dark side of Lean UX with the Experience Canvas
We’ve all been there. Those times where we realise that we’ve been sitting around arguing for hours over the small stuff, because we’ve forgotten about the bigger, more important stuff. Or to bring it into the realm of digital products: whether that interface should still have an accordion menu or should we change it to a set of tabs. But we’ve already shipped, and customers are used to it being this way! We can’t it change now… can we? Wouldn’t it be nice if we had something that helped us steer away from these arguments while there was still time?

The Failures of “Intro to TDD”
The problems with how TDD is typically introduced are fundamental, because they put the learner on a path that leads to a destination which might resemble where they want to go, but doesn’t actually show them the way to the promised destination itself. This sort of phenomenon happens often enough that I’ve decided to finally settle on a name: “WTF now, guys?”

A simplistic Spring web app will be used to show some practical code examples. 
Palestra: Webinar: Spring with Immutability
Readers of Josh Bloch’s “Effective Java” are sometimes perplexed when they reach Item #15: “Minimize Mutability.” If we are to minimize mutability, then obviously we must maximize immutability. While all Java programmers utilize immutable objects every day (e.g. java.lang.String), when asked to create our own immutable classes, we often hesitate. However, if we push through this hesitation, we’ll reap the benefits of simpler reasoning about program correctness, free thread safety, and other benefits.
Palestra: DevOps Patterns to Scale Web Applications using Cloud Services
Scaling a web applications can be easy for simple CRUD software running when you use Platform as a Service Clouds (PaaS). But if you need to deploy a complex software, with many components and a lot users, you will need have a mix of cloud services in PaaS, SaaS and IaaS layers. You will also need knowledge in architecture patterns to make all these software components communicate accordingly. In this article, we share our experience of using cloud services to scale a web application. We show usage examples of load balancing, session sharing, e-mail delivery, asynchronous processing, logs processing, monitoring, continuous deployment, realtime user monitoring (RUM). These are a mixture of development and system operations (DevOps) that improved our application availability, scalability and performance.
