A Copernican Revolution: DevOps, Kubernetes and Cloud Native

Avanscoperta: Hi Jacopo! One of the latest addition to our team of trainers and experts. A very warm welcome from all of us! 🙂

Jacopo: Thank you very much! It’s amazing to be part of the team 🙂

Avanscoperta: Jacopo, tell us how did you get into computers and programming. And also, what was your favourite videogame as a kid?

Jacopo: Well, let’s start with the videogame: Starcraft, by far. I’m a strategist 😉 I think also the first edition of Monkey Island had a role in shaping me, I wouldn’t explain otherwise my passion for Grog.

Cosa si intende con User Research, User Experience e User Interface Design?

Avanscoperta: Ciao Raffaele, ben ritrovato sulle pagine di questo blog! 🙂

Raffaele: Sbagliare una volta è ammissibile. La seconda è un indizio di colpa.

Avanscoperta: Esperto di UX/Design, docente universitario, fondatore di un’azienda di Design, antropologo (o meglio, Hackntropologo!) e, last but not least, trainer Avanscoperta… quale job title descrive meglio ciò che fai?

Raffaele: Quando sento gli altri riferirsi a me con i job title quasi non mi riconosco. Io mi considero un artigiano curioso. Continua la lettura di Cosa si intende con User Research, User Experience e User Interface Design?

Second-generation Agile Methodology: Dan North’s BDD Tales

Interview with Dan North

Writing an introduction to an interview with Dan North is not an easy task, being one of the very first names that come to anyone’s mind when talking about Agile and, as the saying goes, being one of those people who need no introduction.

Originator of BDD aka Behavior-Driven Development, Dan is a frequent conference speaker and a star of the software development world by all means. Dan will also be in Milan on May 15th-16th for his 2-day workshop “Software Faster”.

Among many other interesting things, in this interview we find out why the principles of the Agile Manifesto are aging well (like a good wine we might say!) and what we can do to make the most out of them in an ever changing world, almost 20 years since they were written for the first time.
