Five for Friday – April 30, 2021

We’re already a third of the way through 2021. It’s still a wild world, but I’m signed up to get my first vaccine dose on Monday, so that light at the end of the tunnel is looking just a little bit brighter.

Here’s some stuff from my world this week.

  • I wrote another article for TestProject – this one on a better (and frankly, more obvious) way to learn test automation.
  • I joined the club of people with big monitors this week when I got this 34″ Samsung monitor. I’m happy to say that my 4+ year old GTX 1060 can drive it at 3440×1440 at 75hz (along with an older monitor at 1920×1080. With this monitor, I’m also using my mac more as a secondary machine.
  • If anyone on my team reads this, they’ll agree that I bring up the need frame conversations to help others get the most out of a conversation. The First Minute by Chris Fenning is a great book to understand framing (Framing = (Context + Intent + Key Message)). It’s a quick read, and well worth it.
  • Yet-another – but also a good write up / guide on 1:1 meetings.
  • Finally, a really good article on scalaing mono repos at git. A lot here to learn for those (like me) who are wary of mono repos.
