Be a Champion, Mutual Authentication, Agile, and TDD

Posted in Network,Programming by Brian Russell on July 26, 2007

Here are a couple links I found recently that I really liked.

Champions Pay The Price(from the 37 Signals blog) –  Well said.  I love the not so obvious messages in this post:  Don’t be the person that kills a good idea through fear, doubt, and uncertainty.  Try to be the champion of ideas even though it means you will have to work hard.  Explore ideas out for the positives before stepping to the other side of the line and looking at the negatives.

A Study In Mutual Authentication – When you sit down to think about it, there are so many ways to be socially engineered in order to steal your identity.  This is very thought provoking when you realize where he is coming from.

McAfee SiteAdvisor Phishing Quiz – Want to test how good you are at identifying a phishing site?  Goes hand in hand with the link above.

– Programming Specific –

Project Behavior Issues – Thoughts towards how agile methodologies are supposed to work from the team perspective so everyone holds their own weight.

User Stories to User Experience – Good post talking about developing user stories and what, as a developer, you are trying to get to by performing this step.

Have Your Cake – More talk about agile and how it works or doesn’t in the organization.

You’re a TDD newbie on a project team with Jeremy, what do you do? – Jeremy Miller talking about the do’s and don’ts of TDD.
