Five for Friday – September 7, 2018

Friday snuck up on me, but the interesting links and thoughts kept coming. I hope you find something of interest here.

  • I’ve been re-reading (re-re-reading?) Radical Candor, and this line poked me enough to write down. If  you’re a people manager – or even if you just value relationships, it’s something to keep in mind.
    “Make sure that you are seeing each person on your team with fresh eyes every day. People evolve, and so your relationships must evolve with them. Care personally; don’t put people in boxes and leave them there.” 
  • There are some hints of Modern Testing in this article by JP Lambert on why there are so few agile testers.
  • I liked (mostly) this article from Jason Wong on followership.
  • I’ve been talking about technical debt with a lot folks on my teams at Unity, and then Trish Khoo posts this great article on a Technical Debt Playment Plan.
  • I just finished binge-watching Halt and Catch Fire. It’s a nice dramatization of the rise of the PC, online communities, and the internet, but the story and acting are really, really good. Chuck it in your queue on Netflix and give it a shot.

Leave some words for the weasel
