Netflix Play API: Building an Evolutionary Architecture
'The "Type 1 and 2 decisions" part of the talk began with an explanation of the source quotes about this decision making model from Jeff Bezos. Type 1 decisions are highly consequential and have long-ranging impact, and so these decisions must by made methodically and by engaging in consultation with others. Type 2 decisions are easily changeable, and do not have long-ranging implications, and therefore these decisions should be made quickly and by "high judgements individuals or small groups".'

We'll Fix It Later || Matthew Ström: designer & developer
"Don’t commit to features. Features are solutions to problems, but they’re seldom the only solution. Instead, commit to solving the underlying problem; if the ‘not-quite-perfect’ result (fewer new features, or none at all) solves the problem, you’ve still succeeded."

Jane Street lib over standard lib.

Interesting approach with docker to build two images. The first just used to compile, the second used to deploy. Nice idea, haven’t seen that before.

British Airways Data Breach Conducted via Malicious JavaScript Injection
“The first line of defense against an attack like this is to detect intrusions to infrastructure. However, in this case, British Airways was reportedly unaware of an intrusion. The next line of defense is to verify that production JavaScript source code is not modified unexpectedly. One solution is to implement an external monitoring system that detects any changes to public-facing source code, verifying that any reported changes match intentional changes. This verification can be automated by verifying checksums.”

Unleash the Power of Story Points
“To get started quickly, follow these steps:
Find a number of representative backlog items the team has already completed.
Get the team together and have the team decide on what an "average sized" backlog item is.
Once you've picked that item, call it five story points. This is your "golden story".
Celebrate, because you're done.
The golden story is your new reference point for all future estimations. Now when estimating a backlog item, the question is how it compares to the golden story. Is it a little smaller? Call it three story points. Is it a little bigger? Call it eight story points. Is it quite a bit bigger? Call it 13 or even 20 story points. Is it tiny? Call it one.

The key to success is to not get hung up on the need for precision. Software engineers love precision. That's a good thing, but we need to let go of that with estimation. Estimation is messy stuff, and investing in more and more precise estimates has a quickly-diminishing return.”

Scrum The Toyota Way
“Just as Scrum does not make you Lean, being Lean does not mean you are Agile. You can be Lean without being Agile, and you can be Agile without being Lean. They are different, yet very complementary concepts. We want to be Lean, delivering the flow of value the most efficient way possible, but we also want to be Agile by being able to respond rapidly to changes in customer or market demand, or responding to unknown events quickly.”
