Weekly Chatter 11


My weekly list of what I’m enjoying or pondering - Weekly Chatter 11.

What I’m excited about

Evernote and Getting Things Done I am getting back to my systemized tasks managing. A few weeks of sloppiness and laziness is over (hopefully). There are various ways how to set up GTD. I use Evernote.

What I’m watching

Elon Musk is a really bad speaker. So what? He moves technology beyond its limits. The line between real world and sci-fi is getting thinner every day.

Where I’m speaking next

Agile Tour Vilnius 2017 If you are interested in the event but still don’t have a ticket, reach out to me, and I may get you a discount.

What I’m reading

I am preparing to my Agile talk, and I want to make sure I collect the best materials to visualize my point of view. It is always great to rewatch most interesting presentations from InfoQ, reread collected articles and books. The book that I am reading as preparation isSoftware Architecture for Developers by Simon Brown.

Word I’m avoiding

Try The word “try” doesn’t bring any value, it doesn’t make your statement more reliable and powerful. I’d say quite the opposite.
