Meet Comic Neue:
It's perfect as a display face, for marking up comments, and writing passive aggressive office memos.

My favorite programming font "Source Code Pro" failed me too many times in IDEA. It lead to weird fragments after using the layout editor.

This is why I switched to my second favorite "Droid Sans Mono" once again.

In case you're not really happy with your coding font, here's a small but great selection of monospaced fonts.

If you're ready for a deep dive into git, make sure to check the man page generator.

So what happened? Why is agile now about stand-ups, retrospectives, two-week iterations and planning poker?

A valid question!

Please read the full post, it's worth your time.

Some more nuggets:
The core problem is that non-technical managers of software projects will always fail, or at best be counter productive, whatever the methodology.

Because creating good software is so much about technical decisions and so little about management process, I believe that there is very little place for non-technical managers in any software development organisation.

with no understanding of software engineering, it [agile methodologies, W.R.] merely becomes a set of meaningless rituals that are mostly impediments and distractions to creating successful software.

Alas, no one will listen - again :-(

I', not sure you need a technical pm. But there should be trust on both sides. As I developer I have to trust the pm that he knows the business and the pm has to trust me that I know about software. If development team needs time to do dev things without direct business impact and there is trust from the pm the pm will give the time. 
Agile is all about working together as a team. Taking responsibility for the product as a team. If the pm gives all the directions and all the pm does is pushing business tickets without listening to devs, qa's, designers then this is nothing to do with agile! Agile is about talking with each other not only in standups

#Gitflow  within the IDE.
 
It's finally back: My favorite productivity tool is the #Gitflow  plugin for +JetBrains's IntelliJ and Android Studio and it has been upgraded to work with the changed APIs on IntelliJ 13.1. No more switching to Sourcetree or the console to quickly start a new feature or release a version.
