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)

Editorial

In Ceaușescu's time and for many years after the 1989 Revolution, people with the best grades and results were considered THE best. In theory, they would get the best jobs upon graduation and even higher salaries. In a society where predictability and production are key factors, the ones which have the best grades will stand out. What happens when production is no longer a problem and you need innovation? The real problem is not that the ones with high grades are not able to design new products and services, but rather that they managed to specialize in one field only. This hyper-specialization turns from advantage to limitation. To have a true innovative thinking, you need to hold knowledge from several fields, not just development, as is the case for most of us. This trend can be seen in education, where the STEM concept (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is gaining traction.
