One year after...

one day I became Scrum Master

One year ago, in november, one of my colleague, who was Scrum Master in one of the projects we're working on, decided to move to other city. He need to also change the job, because there was no possibility to work from another city all the time.
So my boss came to me and asked me a simple question - do you want to became a Scrum Master of this project?

What could I say? :)

Look for experience, not only a work

years of work is not the experience

Recently I wrote that from time to time I'm doing interviews. Today I will wrote about another thing that is noticeable after short conversation with some of the candidates. It's fact, that in spite of year of work, they have no experience in programming, no knowledge. They know nothing.
It's little bit scary, because those people are sometimes over a dozen years older than me!

Studies won't make You a great programmer, but is it wrong?

studies suck!

It's common belief that any study (especially those relating with IT) don't bring any value for students. Many people thinks, that is just waste of time. If so, I got one question - why the hell they're starting to study? If they think it's useless, what's the reason? Why some of them spend their money on it?

what happens when you run out of coffee?

day like the other ones

How are you starting your work day?

I'm usually first person in the office, so it's quite quiet, when I'm starting. I really like those moments when I am there, just me and my thoughts. No murmur, noise ... for a long time before all the noise of everyday life.

My first steps goes to the coffee machine, which I immediately turn on. Then I go to my computer, opens all the necessary applications and waiting ...
Before I finish, the coffee is ready.
I take my cup and for the first few sips I'm doing nothing, just tasting:) It takes something around five minutes. Only then can I start doing what I do and try to do it as best I can :)

Are You the best?

Is it possible to be the best?

Everyone want to be the best in something. Subject doesn't matter, everyone trying to be the best. It's obvious and there is nothing special in this. Of course, it's very hard to make it happen and IMHO it's almost impossible, because always, out there, is someone, who know more then we. Even if it will be very specified and narrow branch of knowledge. It's just happens. But is it wrong?
