How I regained concentration and focus

For years, I enthusiastically produced content: books, articles, blog posts, and talks – averaging a book and a half plus five articles per year. Since about 2020, my productivity has plummeted – leaving me totally frustrated. There were no external causes, even the pandemic didn’t affect me, thanks to a nice home office and online work options — so no excuses. To find a way out of the misery, I put my own working habits to the test – and diagnosed a massive loss of concentration. ​ ​

Infrastructure Self-Service with Crossplane

Introducing container technology and Kubernetes to the development and deployment process allows developers to independently manage deployments of their services without needing to interact with the platform team. This is true for applications but not necessarily for external resources like databases which are probably still in the hands of the platform team because the access management and tooling differs. Crossplane could fill this gap towards a full self-service capability.

Dependently-Typed TypeScript

TypeScript is a programming language with some special features: Unlike most other typed programming languages, it was developed as an add-on for JavaScript (JS). In the process, Microsoft has placed great value on ensuring that the language integrates as seamlessly as possible into the existing ecosystems (Node.js and browser). TypeScript’s syntax “merely” adds types to JavaScript, while the compilation “merely” removes the type annotations. This has made TypeScript the de-facto standard for building type-safe JS-based applications.

Code knows no gender

Girls’Day - Braucht man den eigentlich noch? Immerhin stehen Mädchen heute zwecks Berufswahl eine Vielzahl an Informationsquellen zur Verfügung: von zahlreichen Internetseiten, über Podcasts bis hin zu Vorbildern im persönlichen Umfeld. Ein Blick auf die Zahlen in unserer Branche aber verrät: Ja, den brauchen wir. Denn nur 25 Prozent aller Informatikstudierenden sind weiblich. Da liegt die Vermutung nahe, dass es mehr Aufklärung, Information und auch ein wenig Werbung bedarf, um mehr Mädchen für die Softwareentwicklung zu begeistern. Wie wir den Tag in Hamburg gestaltet haben, was wir gemeinsam mit den Girls erreicht haben und die eine oder andere lesson learned – darum geht’s in diesem Blogpost.

Module – Microservices – Monolithen

Microservices sollten alle Architekturprobleme lösen. Wenig überraschend kam es anders. Jetzt sollen die Monolithen, die wir schon seit Jahrzehnten entwickeln, wieder die Lösung sein. Bei dieser Diskussion gerät eine Grundlage für die Entwicklung von komplexen Softwaresystemen in Vergessenheit: Modularisierung, die viel wichtiger als die Frage nach Monolithen oder Microservices ist.

Despite modern multicore processors, website code usually runs in only one thread. True parallelism therefore does not exist, but a clever programming model still allows “asynchronous” code that is not processed linearly.
