Design Thinking: A solution for everyday problems

We all have problems in our day-to-day activities. We all need to come up with new ways to cope with those problems and find a solution that saves us time and resources. This is similar to those moments when we need to go through the morning traffic to get to work. It is similar to when we are trying to plan our weekend getaways. During this time, we're all designers of our own personal lives. You don't have to be a professional designer to improve your life. However, we can all apply the design principles into every aspect of our lives. One of those principles is design thinking.

TESTING
Misconceptions about software testing that I come across (and fight with)

I have been a tester since 2004. I have taken many roles in 13 years but have always considered myself a tester. I have not seen it all, but I have seen a lot. I have been ecstatic when I found bugs that were on the verge of an insane check and terribly ashamed when I missed something that made using the product difficult or impossible in production. I have hidden away in my projects and company believing that I am a good tester I, and I have been on stage, in front of hundreds of people, expecting the one question that will make me realize how stupid my assumptions are.

INTERVIEW
Digital currencies: Interview with Peter Lawrey

We are talking with Peter Lawrey about digital currencies.
What do you think is the main advantage of a digital currency vs. a classic one?
Peter Lawrey: Digital currencies have a different trust model. This allows multiple organisation and individual to co-operate with a lower level of trust required. There is less risk of hacking as the data is designed to be shared from the start. Instead of trusting central governments, people can trust the platform and/or a company which interests are known. This doesn't make the solution better but does provide a viable alternative.

MANAGEMENT
Defeat and/or victory?

For myself, and for many of us, the first thing that goes through our mind after we wake up is: I haven't slept enough. And the second one is: I don't have enough time. It doesn't matter if it's true or false,the thought of not having enough pops into our head automatically, and we don't have enough time to question its accuracy or to examine it carefully. Even before getting out of bed, even before our feet touch the floor, we have the feeling that things aren't going as they should, that we are behind with something, that we are missing something. Moreover, in the evening, when we get back to bed, our mind is contemplating all the things we managed to achieve or didn't achieve on that day. We go to sleep under the weight of our thoughts and we wake up again thinking about what we are missing…' (Lynne Twist in her book The soul of money)

When do screen orientation changes matter?

There are 4.77 billion mobile phone users spread all over the world. They can choose between 2.8 million apps on the Android platform and over 2.2 million on Apple's App Store. Mobile phones are used in schools, on the streets, in the buses, inside personal cars, everywhere. The statistics confirm that it's a real challenge to deal with the mobile device diversity. The app should work and look good on all devices, regardless of their size, orientation or capabilities. Currently, the most popular screen size is 5.4 inches (i.e. iPhone 6) because it was rated as the best size that fits the human hand. Recent studies show that most users hold their phones with one hand and that they prefer portrait mode. However, they often rotate their devices from ergonomic reasons.

We are what we write

We are not living in the Stone Age any more, we are social human beings and we should be also social engineers. It was long time ago when a project was a one-man show, so we have to learn to collaborate, we have to learn how to work in mixed-skills teams and how to share ideas and solutions in order to have a successful life as code writers. According to Tudor Girba1, as developers we spend about half of our working time reading code. Why reading code? Because the current code bases are growing every day, and with each task we have to implement,we will end up reading code more than actually writing it.

From Waterfall to Agile in SAP Landscape

One of the first decisions most projects face, regardless of the development landscape or technology, is "Which development methodology should be used? What fits better for our application and landscape?" This topic gets more and more attention and it's currently a subject of debate. There are many articles debating if the developers creativity is not restricted by adopting standard steps to be followed. This comes up as since the chosen methodology determines how the project's development is organized. The two most known methodologies are Waterfall and Agile. Although SAP has ASAP for ERP implementation, in SAP software development Waterfall and Agile are both famous. The article will draw some ideas around the way of choosing the best fit for the developed software in SAP world.

MANAGEMENT
How did I manage to be more productive?

”Your mind is for having ideas - not for holding them!” In his book, "Getting Things Done", David Allen starts off from a simple premise - we could say that productivity is directly proportional to our ability to relax. When we feel overwhelmed by how much we have to do it’s difficult to focus on ensuring that life and work are moving in the direction you want to go. That's why it's important to plan our daily tasks before working on your big-picture life planning. I have thus discovered GTD – David Allen, a "bottom-up" approach to productivity. The goal is to establish a sense of comfort and control over the work that we have to do, to help us organize our daily tasks as much as possible, in order to have space to concentrate on our big goals.

Automatic classification of documents using natural language processing

The artificial intelligence field is strongly connected with Big Data technologies. One of its areas deals with the study of natural language. Computers can be taught to recognize certain patterns in the processed texts and, based on them, they can automatically classify sentences, phrases or even full documents in predefined groups. Using open source instruments, one can easily configure such a project, capable of classifying text, based on a prior automatic learning phase, using a preset input data.
