Life???s Certainties: Death, Taxes And Performance Testing
04/13/2015 at 06:41:53
It is hard to comprehend just how quickly the companies who provide online tax services (TurboTax,, eSmart Tax, H&R Block, and many others) need to ramp up their operations every year.

Fashioning Design Patterns for Microservice Architectures
04/13/2015 at 03:12:44
The main characteristics of a microservices-based application are defined in Microservices, Monoliths, and NoOps. Each service is fully autonomous and full-stack. Thus, changing a service implementation has no impact to other services as they communicate using well-defined interfaces. There are several advantages of such an application, but it???s not a free lunch and requires a significant effort in NoOps. But let???s say you understand the required effort, or at least some parts of it, required to build such an application and willing to take a jump. What do you do? What is your approach for architecting such applications? Are there any design patterns on how these microservices work with each other?

Estimates or #noestimates... It's All a Matter of Context

The latest round of discussion that seems to have spiked (at least for me) this week is the whole ???to estimate or not to estimate??? conversation. The answer to this question clearly falls into the ???it depends??? category, so if we are having an...
