It is harder to speak than it seems.
This is the lesson — for me — of blogging.
There is this idea that whatever I say here or at my professional blog is permanent and must be correspondingly for-all-time. I read around 120 blogs, and I have to say that I am far far far from being uniquely blocked. Failure to post is endemic, and guilt.
To launch the new site, I’ve decided to start by opening up the many possible routes by which you can approach excellent software development.
See, in our biz, we often get caught up in “one-true-path” approaches. (I confess to having spent much time preaching the one true way, myself. Ahhh, well. Never too late to learn.)
Do you want your team to start towards excellence? The truth is there’s dozens of places you can start.
In the Paths To Excellence series, I want to show them to you, one by one. We’ll start with making an excellent development environment. Why start there? Well, for no other reason than that’s what’s on my mind today. Remember, there are as many starting points as there are teams.
Let’s have at it, shall we?
