From Data to Product

In an ideal world, product managers have plenty of data they can use to validate their idea before building the wrong product. Yana Yushkina describes her journey from a Data Analyst to a Product Manager.

She talks about characteristics a good PM should bring, that include foundational analytical understanding, curiosity not just for technology but to search for the right answers in data, a sense of responsibility and the ability to communicate.

All of that combined with the right metrics at hand and self sufficient mindset will give a Product Manager the right answer from data.

Apple to treat web tracking as vulnerabilities

Online tracking sees harsh criticism and rigid treatment in other browsers for a good reason. Apple stepping up the game with Safari is a good sign for privacy in online usage. In particular with Apple making security and privacy a central value proposition for its devices, such a strict policy is long overdue.

Apple ups its privacy battle with a new “WebKit Tracking Prevention Policy” that aims to prevent all forms covert tracking online.

Of listening and contributing

With knowing marketing personal and products, I particularly liked the image/text link on the article. Listening to your customer is a skill that most organisations lost in their size and product managers never learned in their bubble. Your customer doesn’t express his experience in KPIs nor does he respond to NPS surveys. Frontal address only takes your brand or product as far as your consumer allows you to.

Experiential can be incredibly powerful. But getting it right isn’t straightforward; there are a number of factors you need to take into account in order to be successful. We recently worked with a variety of partners to develop a whitepaper – Live Amplified – exploring why experiential is so essential to a brand’s authenticity, and how to get it right.

Specification of DNS over Dedicated QUIC Connections

While a lot of people debate DNS-over-https (and it’s dependencies), IETF has a specification for DNS-over-QUIC on it’s standards track.

This document describes the use of QUIC to provide transport privacy for DNS. The encryption provided by QUIC has similar properties to that provided by TLS, while QUIC transport eliminates the head-of-line blocking issues inherent with TCP and provides more efficient error corrections than UDP. DNS over QUIC (DNS/QUIC) has privacy properties similar to DNS over TLS specified in RFC7858, and performance similar to classic DNS over UDP.

GitHub Actions

GitHub
GitHub

GitHub today released a CI/CD Tool, GitHub Actions. With the tight integration into development workflows and rich, community maintained build-command, actions appears an interesting competitor in the market. As a minimum, the release indicates the importance of CI/CD for the modern software development lifecycle.

Developer productivity and frictionless workflows have been buzzwords for the past half decade and the arrival and rapid growth of Travis-CI, Jenkins or Cirlce-CI have proven the resonance in development organisations. GitHub has outstanding testimonials from day one on the announcement and the ecosystem appears to be ready to go.

It is an offering that comes with appealing integrations and a competitive price, that sure is worth watching.

GitHub Actions makes it easy to automate all your software workflows, now with world-class CI/CD. Build, test, and deploy your code right from GitHub. Make code reviews, branch management, and issue triaging work the way you want.
