Aha of today: some consultants and trainers (that inspire me) have regular office hours or facilitate meetings on meetup.com. It’s such a joy for me to chat and practice with them directly and informally.
Today’s aha: Despite my deep belief that curiosity is crucial in conversations, I still catch myself not asking enough questions in dialogues that I have. #agileconversations #TheDEVOPSConference
Aha of today: I quote which inspired me on my run: “Fate whispers to the warrior, ‘You can not withstand the storm.’ The warrior whispers back, ‘I am the storm.’”
Aha of today: “Legacy code is valuable code that we’re afraid to change. Legacy is not a characteristic of code, but of our relationship with the code.” – Amitai Schleier
