"We live in cities you'll never see onscreen - 
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things"

I just love that line :D

Sad lesson today. Turns out MongoDB is useless as a database (if you consider what a database is). 
In May of 2013, we showed that MongoDB 2.4.3 would lose acknowledged writes at all consistency levels. Every write concern less than MAJORITY loses data by design due to rollbacks–but even WriteConcern.MAJORITY lost acknowledged writes, because when the server encountered a network error, ...

Thanks for sharing. I think what this post highlights clearly, and as others have said, is that you need to assess what tool you need for a job, and not just dive in head first and use the most fashionable shiny.

He reasoned that if you couldn't see the background, there'd be no way of knowing that the ball and the feathers were being accelerated towards the earth. So he concluded...they weren't. Brilliant.

I'm sorry but I had to post this. 
Before I get into why this "Agile" stuff is horrible, let's describe where Agile/Scrum can work. It can work for a time-sensitive and critical project of sho...

I agree that this reads more like "how not to use Agile/Scrum" than a realistic critique of agile/scrum. Bad managers can screw up ANY development methodology, and as methodologies go, I've never seen anything better than well-implemented agile.

Contrast: I've NEVER seen a good waterfall process. Ever. And I've been in the industry since before a lot of devs were born, back when waterfall was the norm...

Bottom line:

Doesn't matter if you consult or develop in-house... if you're not listening to feedback from customers and constantly adjusting to improve outcomes...

You're Doing It Wrong.

A chilling orchestral version of their original song. Geike Arnaert has a better voice though.
