Welcome to Walking Alongside: Stories from YEG where my mission is to celebrate the amazing people and what they embody, showcase, create or otherwise bring to our vibrant city, Edmonton. In the centre-ish of the province, Edmonton is a city that has undergone identity shifts over its lifetime, but one thing that has remained steadfast is the people. The sense of community that is created by the people of all walks of life from all the corners of the globe is what make it a great place to ca ...

If you like street food, then you'l…
 
"Where do you find inspiration for coding," I hear very often. The trick is simple: I try not to stay for too long with the same code base. I try to extract sub-module, libraries, or frameworks from the products I work with and make them standalone products. This is fun: making new products.The video is here: https://youtu.be/ygoWsvgXe1c…
 
Very often our managers don't know exactly what we have to do. They don't have specific requirements, they don't know how to specify tasks for us. Is it bad? Many people complain and quit. I suggest the opposite strategy: you say and do what you think is important. Make your own requirements.The video is here: https://youtu.be/a_UEkcV9laA…
 
Sorry for the delay folks - dealing with some stuff right now and thought I would give you a little "food for thought" as we ramp up for a municipal election.

We've heard a lot about our frontline workers and maybe your are one, or know one or maybe you're just glad they have been there to keep us feeling as normal as we can since the pandemic began. Today we get to hear what it's like behind the swinging doors of the Emergency Room as we talk with one of the Emerg nurses Michelle Beeson. It's not as gla…
 
This year we organize a competition for student researchers. If you are a student (MSc, BSc, PhD), you most certainly do some diploma work.

Listen as Ann shares her story of how she took something that had always been part of her life and turned it into something that helps bring people together, first in her community of Ottewell and now all over western Canada (and maybe beyond!). Be inspired as she talks about overcoming a year long recovery from spinal surgery and how she found the…
 
Every time I start a new book, an article, or a new software project, I spend a lot of time making sure it visually looks nice. Sometimes this process even takes longer than the writing itself. I'm kidding about this, but it's not so far from the truth. Visual representation of data/text is very important.The video is here: https://youtu.be/l4PhrB4…

Listen to his inspiring story and how he is inspired by the kids that he teaches, all the time, but especially during this pandemic. Burton Cummings may mak…
 
Computer science is not so hard to do. If you are a professional software engineer, you can present your results in an academic way and publish them at one of those computer science conferences. You will get yourself a status of a researcher. This will only help you in your career.The video is here: https://youtu.be/ARwiHvTA4dc…

Join us as we meet and get to know some of the people that make Edmonton a great place to cal…
 
When you deal with a weak and incompetent manager, who is not capable of finding a way to measure people's results objectively, you have to behave like an imposter. If you don't, somebody else will and the manager will think that this guy is the best guy in the team, no matter what are the actual achievements.Read the blog post: https://www.yegor25…
 
You can acquire a new team member by making a better offer. I mean money. But you can't keep them with money. To keep someone in the team, especially if this is a top performer, you need two things: 1) challenging tasks, and 2) objective appraisal. Both of them are only available to good and strong managers.Video is here: https://youtu.be/bRXaMOJMJ…
 
Just working for a product, creating a product, and making your customers happy doesn't mean being good. It only means being successful, rich, or effective. It's a pretty selfish strategy. If you consider yourself as a "good" person (whatever it means), you should think about giving something to the community, for free.The video is here: https://yo…
 
If you outsource part of your software development project to a third-party, you may think that the best type of contract to sign is Fixed-Price: you set the scope, they promise the time and price, they deliver, you check the quality, and you pay. It sounds right, but in reality, it'll be a disaster. Instead, always sign Time&Material contracts: yo…
 
In this episode of the YEG MS podcast I was excited at the opportunity to interview Dr. Gretchen Hawley for the second time! From her website, “I began sharing the success that some of my patients had been seeing from our physical therapy sessions on social media, and was surprised by the number of people … YEG MS Ep. 62, “Dr. Gretchen Hawley, Volu…
 
It's your job as a manager in a software team — to identify wrong behavior and find ways to punish it. The best manager, of course, will configure the management system so that it will enforce the punishment. Average managers use guilt and emotions as tools for that. Bad managers are scared to even think about punishment.The video is here: https://…
 
Most of us are so scared now of the word "punishment" that all types of mistakes made by programmers remain unnoticed, very often. I believe, there are many types of mistakes that have to be punished. Everybody will win: the project, the people, and our customers.The video is here: https://youtu.be/zJ_PqlMcYcE…
 
Many of us believe that competition is not something a software team may need. Moreover, competition may destroy a team killing morale and promoting conflicts. This may happen, but not because the competition is a bad idea, but due to the misconfiguration of its rules.The video is here: https://youtu.be/TyHCjKOFsBo…

Traditionally, you tell your team what needs to be done and then force them (or motivate) to do it. You basically try to make your plans their plans. It works sometimes in some industries, but doesn't work with us programmers: we are too spoiled and lazy. I suggest a better planning principle: you let your people decide how many awards they are goi…
 
Measuring the productivity of programmers to many of us seems like a dangerous process, which leads to a lack of value delivered. This is true, but only if you use the wrong metrics to do your measurements. Use the right ones and everything will be fine.Video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZcNHZ_FJco…
 
Many management experts believe that competition kills collaboration and that's why a software team must not encourage their people to compete. Instead, they should collaborate and help each other. I don't see a contradiction here. Moreover, I don't think that a fully altruistic collaboration is at all possible and/or productive. I argue with Allen…
 
It's the second last work day of the year, and the second last episode of YEGS & BACON in the current format! 2021 is just around the corner, and we're talking about the new comics and graphic novels out this week, as well as Wonder Woman '84. We'll give plenty of warning for when spoilers start. They stop at 51:12.…
 
It's a well-known "fact": best programmers are 30x times more effective than their average colleagues. How do you reward them? You pay them 30x salaries. Of course, you don't. However, they do deserve such a reward and won't work hard, if you don't give them something of this size. The only replacement of money is recognition, which you can give th…
 
If there is no competition in your team, everybody will soon be interested in making deals and cheating. The only simple rule that may prevent this from happening: when I win, you lose. If such a rule exists there, your team members will always be interested in achieving more instead of compromising the system.The video is here: https://youtu.be/pg…
 
I think there is a simple metric we all can use to understand who the minds of managers in teal organizations work. Just count the amount of message they send you every day and you will understand where you are standing compared to others in your team. No sarcasm.The video is here: https://youtu.be/TmAJPeM4UlE…
 
A famous book "Reinventing Organizations" suggests a new model of management, where people are not personally responsible for mistakes, but everybody altogether share responsibility and avoid hierarchies. I don't understand how this can work. It can't.Video is here: https://youtu.be/WZlIb5oxDBQ由Yegor Bugayenko
 
If you are a teacher, a mentor, or a team leader, your job is not to give your people the final opinion about their results. This would be a terrible mistake. Instead, you should make sure they work for the market and the market evaluates their performance. Best team leaders know how to do that.由Yegor Bugayenko
 
If we reward programmers for each pull request they merge or for each ticket they submit and we don't control the quality of PRs and tickets, what will happen? Nothing good. They will easily abuse the system and there will be tons of low-quality tickets and PRs (or classes, or lines of code). However, if we do have strong quality control, everythin…
 
Most of us don't feel comfortable asking a manager for a raise. And it's only natural. I suggest you don't do it. Instead, you approach them with a question about the system your company has for promotion and salary increases. Moreover, you don't ask because you need this, but you ask because you care about others. Should work! :)The video is here:…
