Adopting a Performance Focus With Software Development

27 Jan

Over the past few years I have given a number of talks and written multiple blog posts on the topic of performance optimization as it relates to software development.  These postings have been very technical in nature and focus greatly on the problem solving aspects of application performance.  However as I review my presentations one of the most critical aspects of application performance is actually business organization and dedication to application performance.  In this post I would like to review the common approaches that I see within development teams and easy ways for management to encourage positive change to focus more on development.

Developers & Recruiters: Managing the Relationship

19 Jan

For one reason or another in my entire career I have helped to mentor others in professional development and educational topics.  I think this comes from getting involved in educational environments within a few years of starting the "real job."  Over the years I have shared a lot of information with others that over time I have been able to see the benefits.  A recent situation locally got me thinking about some of these topics and I decided to create a new category here on the blog around "Professional Development" to help share some of these tips and tricks.  In this first post I'm going to talk about something that can be create very sticky situations and that is the relationship between developers and recruiters.  Although applicable to other industries, my thoughts and experiences are based on working with IT recruiters which seem to have a few different needs/styles than others.
