17135: The Agile Board

hwms.coverart

Agility begins at home. Or more to the point, it begins with the board. Too often, companies are organized conventionally and then the CEO tries to make the Agile by applying various tricks and procedures. As Vinny argues in today’s episode, you really need to start at the top, think of the company as a whole, and start by understanding the claims and obligations of all parties.

It is a little crazy, we do admit, to build a company for an 8-year-old Entrepreneur. But it is not crazy to ask how your CEO will grow into the leadership demands of the organization.

17125: How do we learn to code?

hwms.coverart

We’re actually asking the bigger question. How do we learn anything? Do we learn form experts? From Teachers? From each other? There is a lot of evidence that we learn technical skills from each other, from peers who know little more than we do. Sure, there are classes and textbooks and formal lessons. However, the computer field has given us many examples that we learn the most from people who are learning just like us.

The week we introduce Katerena Kuksenok, our in house expert on learning to code. Dr. Kuksenok is a graduate of the University of Washington in Seattle and is now employed by SAP in Berlin. Her work looks at the processes we use to teach ourselves to code.
