There is a way...


Hello, Habr. I've been watching IT market for a long time. But i'd never written anything. That's the first part of my first article, so please don't hate it too much.

In this series of articles i'd like to share my experience of finding, teaching and integrating interns and juniors in a product team. (Don't confuse them with freelance teams or something like that).

I'd like to point out that everything you'll be reading in my articles represents my personal opinion. Yes, it has sound foundation in years of experience. But i won't say my experience is exclusive and therefore, the only right way to do things is to do it as i say.

In this part we'll see two sides of one entity. That, in turn, will help you to determine what kind of people you want for your team.

Let's look closer on the two basic scenarios:

The Web is a blessing and a curse. It’s the greatest publishing platform ever devised, it offers accessibility and allows for the free flow of information. On the other hand, it has made getting actual exposure even harder. Yet, some brands still mistake the former for the latter and continue to pursue traditional marketing strategies.

This is the year that everything changed. Companies, and people around the world have been impacted by COVID19 and the way we live, and work has been altered. Organizations have had to react quickly to these changes and many businesses have had to make drastic changes simply to stay afloat.

However, while many businesses were negatively impacted, some areas of the economy have benefited from these changes. One of the areas that has possibly benefited the most is the online delivery industry. This is primarily due to the changes that the governments around the world are mandating of their citizens.

Is Agile possible for the whole company?

Agile
image

Ten years ago, a young project manager had a successful experience in implementing something similar to Scrum in one of the insurance companies. There is more than enough enthusiasm. Colleagues from the tech department strongly supported me. The developer's background was helpful too. But at some point, an impenetrable wall appeared: the Agile approach worked inside IT, but it did not work outside. It needed synchronization with other departments and a change in the way the company worked. A full transition did not happen, but a year ago, it was possible to implement Agile transformation on another project in a financial organization with more than 100 people. Is this possible?

11 Agile Project Management Best Practices

Project management

The Agile method of project management focuses on the repetitive development of the product. Each iteration starts with better input. Although initially intended for software development, the Agile methodology is now being adopted rapidly in other industries too.


At the core of the Agile methodology are sprints or cycles, which are small development time frames focusing on the continuous improvement of the development process and/or product. It involves sub-tasks that must be completed within the specified time period.


Since the project management industry is going gaga over the Agile methodology, it is an apt time to learn the Agile methodology. Agile best practices help in further enhancing the effectiveness of the project management technique. Here are 11 of the best ones:


1. Employ Relevant Project Management Software

Are Your File Transfer Integrations GDPR Compliant?

APILegislation in IT
Sandbox

The onslaught of data security breaches today is relentless, with thousands of major breaches each year and 50 percent more breaches in 2019 vs. 2018, according to a report by Risk Based Security. The costs for each breach have burgeoned as well, with the average cost of a data breach at about $3.92 million.


Securing data from breaches not only spares bottom line and publicity, it's now also a basic legal requirement to comply with rapidly growing data privacy laws.


While organizations have long had to comply with industry-specific standards, such as HIPAA in healthcare and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), you now also face new consumer privacy regulations. Including:

Agile English teaching. What is it?

Reading roomLearning languages


Modern-day agile English teaching has come to take the place of rigid, cut-and-dried lessons that are fast becoming a thing of the past.

Let me clarify what I mean by agile teaching that is bound to substitute conventional teaching.

Some decades ago and up until recently it was perfectly valid to choose a certain textbook and go through it module by module together with your students (be it a group or individual learners). Given the abundance of high-quality materials readily accessible online and offline, it is completely unthinkable to proceed with this outdated approach.

Reliable load testing with regards to unexpected nuances

Miro corporate blogIT systems testingSystem Analysis and DesignWeb services testingProduct Management
We thought about building the infrastructure for large load tests a year ago when we reached the mark of 12,000 simultaneously active online users. In three months, we made the first version of the test, which showed us the limits of the service.

The irony is that simultaneously with the launch of the test, we reached the limits on the production server, resulting in two-hour service downtime. This further encouraged us to move from making occasional tests to establishing an effective load testing infrastructure. By infrastructure, I mean all tools for working with load testing: tools for launching the test (manual and automatic), the cluster that creates the load, a production-like cluster, metrics and reporting services, scaling services, and the code to manage it all.

image

Simplified, this is what our structure looks like: a collection of different servers that somehow interact with each other, each server performing specific tasks. It seemed that to build the load testing infrastructure, it was enough for us to make this diagram, take account of all interactions, and start creating test cases for each block one by one.

This approach is right, but it would have taken many months, which was not suitable for us because of our rapid growth — over the past twelve months, we have grown from 12,000 to 100,000 simultaneously active online users. Also, we didn’t know how our service infrastructure would respond to the increased load: which blocks would become the bottleneck, and which would scale linearly?

When you want to introduce some new methods or ideas, there is nothing better than hands-on experience. People usually think games and having fun don’t go together with some serious work. But in the Agile world, using games to explore and teach new concepts is common. For teaching Kanban, there are several simulation games widely used in classes. Most popular are Featureban, Flowlab, and getKanban.

Does gender segregation in the labor market still persist?

Microsoft corporate blogProgrammingIT-companies
Common sense prompts that gender segregation and gender discrimination on labor market have declined. There is a popular opinion that too much is talked about smaller women’s chances to blossom forth at work, while the problem was solved long ago. Actually, women all over the world have the same opportunities as men to get higher education, to hold a supervisor or manager position, to climb the career and salary ladder.



The biggest corporations and companies run special programs to shorten gender inequality on labor market. That seems like the evidence: smaller firms try to imitate the policy, and also values, of world famous companies in order to succeed and gain benefit like the second ones do (it is an economic-sociological proved behavior), so in nearest future, or perhaps in present, all players on labor market will popularize the idea of gender equality in all its senses. However, the state of affairs is far from desired. Even if organizations follow gender unbiased strategy, will it solve the global problem of gender inequality at work overall?

This is the guest article by Maria Antomony, HSE University graduate student, sociologist and code passionate.
