I am a software engineer that lives in Minnesota. I have kids. Soccer is a wonderful sport - go Loons! go Gunners!
Over the years, I have managed larger and larger teams on larger and more critical programs. During this time, I have continually asked myself a few seemingly simple questions:
- What needs to get done?
- How will we know when we are done?
- Are we doing this right? How would we know? Why is is 6:00 and I am thinking about this?
- How can this get done as quickly as possible, for as little cost as possible, and still have it work?
What I have found is that these are incredibly difficult questions to answer. A lot of this site is a way to capture my thoughts on why this is so hard, and what kinds of things we should consider doing to make it easier to answer them. Really… why we have tolerated this for so long?
The rest of the site is me chasing bright lights to satisfy my big id’s desire for instant gratification… e.g. what’s the next thing?!
