Progress goes on

I am thrilled that we are moving a project to Java 11. I know there are even latests versions out there, but for me it seems good achievement already.

I am working with the team to have good coverage for critical components and security is a big focus.

The challenge in software development when you start from an already established product is how to balance between security and usability.

There are many things to consider, including the GDPR regulations.

What you need to do is:
1️⃣​ Identify critical users and if you can, please present them solution in advance to get their feedback.
2️⃣​ Identify critical customer data and how long you must keep it and how to store it securely
3️⃣​ Identify the attack surface of your application and how you can mitigate any potential attacker’s attempt.
4️⃣​ Priorities all the user stories you had identified. Remember, there won’t be enough time for everything, so work incrementally.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
