In Softwareprojekten an sich Aufgabe des Scrum Masters gegenüber dem Team und dem Product Owner oder dem allgemeinen Management. Häufig wird die Rolle als “Beschützer des Teams” wahrgenommen. Der Scrum Master soll dem Team helfen, eine realistische Einschätzung Ihrer Fähigkeiten abzugeben und nur Aufgaben zu committen, die realistisch in einem definierten Zeitrahmen geliefert werden können. Unter anderen Aufgaben dient diese dem Zweck, Erwartungshaltungen der Stakeholder zu managen und das Team vor überzogenen Ansprüchen zu schützen. Längerfristig führt das zu einem guten oder besseren Verhältnis zwischen allen Beteiligten, mit einem Vertrauen in gegenseitige Erwartungen und Aufgaben. Ein gutes Verhältnis wiederum hilft dabei, produktiver Software zu schreiben und Mehrwert zu liefern, anstatt Diskussionen zu führen.
Die paar Worte auf einer Fliese in einem Schaufenster beziehen sich mutmaßlich eher auf rein zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen. Dort ist es aber genau so wichtig, sich gegenseitig zu verstehen.
Today Kubernetes released it’s version 1.17. The software is one of the most popular open source projects ever. It allows managing containerised applications and micro-services. The release arrives at the end of a regular development cycle.
After the project was announced in 2014 by two Google employees, it hit a first 1.0 milestone on July 2015. The project gained massive popularity in the cloud world because it enables scalable infrastructures and service. With the Kubernetes 1.0 release, Google partnered with the Linux Foundation to form the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a new home for the technology.
Since Kubernetes became publicly available, it gained popularity quickly and today is commonly used as the main way to host microservice-based implementations, mostly because Kubernetes and its associated ecosystem provide a rich choice of tools with all the capabilities that are needed to address key concerns of any modern software architectures.
With Kubernetes 1.17 released today, the package comes with more details on the release in the Release Schedule or in particular on the Changelog.
When Python3 came out in 2009, it was already heavily debated. Python3 would be incompatible with previous versions of the popular language, but fix many drawbacks. While the vision was clear and the community initially planned to move forward much quicker. The demand for having a 2.x branch was so huge, however, that the community decided to extend support for 2.7 until the end of 2019. Stack Overflow took a look on why the path took so long.
All too often, the task list for your teams shared project management tool shows items like “Create Workflow” or “Define Process”. Items that do resonate well in the flow of work and in the nexus of individuals. But they do fall short of allowing the rest of the organization to grasp the meaning and even fail to do so for the reporter when some time has passed.
Some consice expressions on expectations on what this story or ticket is about can do wonder to getting things done. Rather than “defining a a workflow”, for example the product management team would
Check for Duplicate Entries
Describe the Requirement
Outline all depending products
Draw a critical path
Align all stakeholders on the critical path
Communicate to the team
The core idea is to eliminate any discussion about when an issue, item or story is delivered and is unique across function. Of course, the above serves as an example and will vary by team and work, and needs revision in any particular scenario. Having specific action advise will help reducing debates and focus on an actual deliverable, that is done by all opinion.
