  1. Making Work Visible at Parts Unlimited - Dominica DeGrandis

    When Demand is Greater than Capacity

    Rarely do I use the word always, except when it comes to requests on my time. Requests always exceed my capacity to meet the demand.

    Surveying Parts Unlimited, one of the top replies as to why work isn’t completed on time is that, “there is simply too much work to do”. The Phoenix Project isn’t done yet because people are drowning in work, largely due to Unplanned Work and Conflicting Priorities.

    Maxine’s dev environment took how long to get? That’s because 45 different people have a part to play (Thief Unknown Dependencies at your service), and they all have different priorities.

    Randy, Maxine’s boss, can’t approve Maxine’s Dev environment request (Unplanned Work) until the end of the day – after he’s finished with his higher priority meetings.

    Likewise, Brent’s name shows up on more critical action items than anyone else and everyone seems to have him on speed-dial. He is constantly interrupted with Unplanned Work. It is not surprising that Brent has no capacity to work on features when he is fixing high-priority defects, stabilizing the codebase, and responding to outages most of the time.

    When the oil in the vehicle is not changed regularly, disaster is inevitable.

    Important But Neglected Work Calls for Revisiting Priorities

    Just like proper maintenanc…

  3. John De Goes is Programming Without Type Classes

    Type classes have become a cornerstone of statically-typed functional programming, powering abstractions like monoid and monad. Yet, type classes often have generalized names, which don’t reflect their purpose in specific domains; and they incur higher learning costs, especially when emulated in languages without them.

    In this presentation, John De Goes discusses the pros and cons of using type classes, and presents a systematic method for building powerful functional components that do not require type classes. Attendees will learn how to preserve the benefits of principled, algebraic functional programming, without forcing type classes on coworkers or users.

    A mathematician by training but a software engineer by vocation, John A. De Goes has been professionally writing software for more than 25 years. John has contributed to dozens of open source projects written in functional programming languages, including ZIO, a library for asynchronous and concurrent programming in functional Scala. In addition to speaking at Strata, OSCON, BigData TechCon, NEScala, ScalaWorld, Scala IO, flatMap, Scalar Conf, LambdaConf, and many other conferences, John also published a variety of books on programming. Currently, John heads Ziverge Inc, a company committed to solving hard business problems using the power of…

  6. Daniel Kahneman in conversation

    Nobel Prize winning psychologist and bestselling author of Thinking, Fast and Slow Daniel Kahneman, joins Ben Newell, Professor of Cognitive Psychology at UNSW Sydney, to discuss his work ahead of the release of his latest book. A psychologist whose work on the foundations of behavioural economics was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics, Daniel Kahneman has had an enormous impact on our understanding of how we think, and the process behind how and why we make good and bad decisions.

    In his new book, Noise: A Flaw in Human Judgement, Kahneman (with Olivier Sibony and Cass Sunstein) explores our susceptibility to ‘noise’ – the random factors and mental distractions that interfere with the judgement and decisions of organisations and individuals. Although we now try to acknowledge the impact of bias, ‘noise’ is even more common, but there is little awareness of it. Can we reduce both noise and bias to make better decisions?

  8. Seth Godin: Make Money From Your Creativity | Full Interview | The Jordan Harbinger Show Ep. 445

    Seth Godin is a living tsunami of productivity. He blogs every single day. He hosts a podcast. He’s an entrepreneur who’s been inducted into both the Marketing Hall of Fame and the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame. He’s a teacher who’s trying to change the way we learn. Oh, and he’s also found the time to write 20 (or so) international bestsellers — his latest is The Practice: Shipping Creative Work.

    He’s also found the time to return to this show (if you missed his last appearance, make sure to catch it here: https://youtu.be/gGFEWHA9WIQ), for which we’re grateful. In this episode, we talk about what it takes to make a living from creating — not only by finding people who want to buy our creations, but by trusting ourselves to have a steady hand with the process and execution of creating. This goes way deeper than the hollow call to “find your passion” that lazy gurus will peddle ad nauseam, and it comes from someone who’s probably written another two life-changing bestsellers in the time it took you to read this paragraph. Listen, learn, and enjoy!
