1. The Impact of Language in Tech

    I had a bit of an “aha!” moment recently as I was writing a message about a sensitive subject in a Slack channel. I wanted to use a few specific words to talk about how my post might be “misunderstood” or “misinterpreted.

  3. What Can You Do in 6 Weeks?

    In Shape Up, we work in 6-week cycles to solve business problems. This constraint is meant to put pressure on the pitch writing process. With only 6 weeks, we must ensure that we are not biting off more than we can chew, or rather that we know we can chew (and swallow) everything we’ve bitten.

  4. Why functional?

    The internet is full of information, mostly related to learning how to do something, but when it comes to software development, I feel the bigger question is why we should learn something.

  6. Activism for developers

    The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.

  7. Security the Elephant

    In an ideal world, everyone would build applications with a software development lifecycle (SDLC) that considers security at every step. The security and regulatory space of the application would be understood.

  8. Employee Owned since April 2020

    Test Double, Employee Owned since April 2020 Today we’re excited to announce that Test Double is now a company that is 100% owned by our employees.

  9. Shape Up Your Project Planning

    We have a lot of posts about Test Driven Development (TDD) on this blog. We’re big proponents of TDD and the discipline added by its red, green, refactor workflow. First we define a problem with a failing (red) test, then we create the supporting functionality (green), then we iterate on the product (refactor) and prepare ourselves for the next problem we’ll be solving.
