Luna Links – Backflips, Work Schedules and Generalist Developers

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Why Is a Triple Back Flip on a Bike So Difficult? – Wired mag has an amazing video of a triple backflip on a BMX as well as a great explanation of why it’s so hard, and how to do it. (Luna Recommendation: Don’t eat your lunch while you watch).

The Marker’s Schedule vs the Manager’s Schedule – An oldie but a goodie from Paul Graham, relevant after my session at Agile Australia 2011.  Essential reading if you’re a manager of knowledge workers.

The Greatest Developer Fallacy Or The Wisest Words You’ll Ever Hear? – An interesting view on the negatives of generalist developers.  When I read this I’m reminded of a friend studying at Cambridge who has a year to figure out the question for her PhD, let alone the answer.  We don’t tend to go deep into things anymore, and that’s a bad thing – there is a great reference in there to the 10 years or 10,000 hours to mastery stuff too, but I’m going to save that for a real post soon.
