Know your tools
A colleague a few days ago passionately spoke to me on how we don't have access to new tools that are storming market and provide some amazing features. I could not disagree for the world of internet always fascinates me with its offerings. Our discussion h...

What is non-negotiable?
This performs a bit slow, I left it there. I think we can address it for future. Well it has been like this forever, I know its trivial work, but I dont know if I should touch it. I had found the issue, but thought it was too trivial to stop the release. It...

Mind your meeting
I was called in a meeting a few days ago, a meeting to discuss the release plan. I went into the meeting only to realize I was not required there, a few moments later I realized a bunch of people in that meeting were not required there either. I waited to l...

Things I miss.....

Things I miss.... 1. A display of committed vs achieved. 2. A view to what is blocking. 3. An integration that happens on every logical point as opposed to complete story point. 4. An ambiguous requirement that you encountered mid way. 5. A design that evolves with audit.

Scrum : Who is for what?
Scrum very clearly defines a simple rule for the attendees and the participants. No unwanted noise. When the scrum guide states " The Scrum Master enforces the rule that only Development Team members participate in the Daily Scrum. The Daily Scrum is not a ...

Its not Them, its US
 I usually put a negative rating, when a candidate uses "They" to refer to their existing companies. I have this issue even when the project teams across refer to each other as "They". It can be Dev is working on it, or QA is testing it but it never needs t...

Why am I not on that email
A few days ago, someone from my team IM me, in despair wanting to have a chat. I agreed. We went to a meeting room, where he raised his disappointment on why he is not on the emails shared between one of the project teams. Since I myself was not on the emai...

Story
Introduction
I finally get to write something about me.. About me and here...

I am an Accidental Manager, I was thrown into Management by my bosses... I got pushed and people think I am good... I believe not yet. I have so much to learn and still pretend that I am an Einstein here :P

OK.. If you think I am serious, You are right. If not then why not just put a smile on your face that I believe has not seen a smile for ages????

For those who have hit the page as they are just curious to know about me... I somehow graduated, I love the puter but not more than the passion that drives me to become a Film maker ... if not now some years down the line. I enjoy internet as mush as you do, I enjoy reading and some sports... that my 10 inch belly out doesnt allow me...

I look cute, but dont go by looks they are decieiving and the photo I put on my networks is usually the one when I looked Cute....If thats not enough for you... have a more of me...
