Misgivings of leader

Hiring is all about getting right people but when u select from a subset of people just for boosting diversity you show disrespect to people who have stood things up.

Let's all learn to choose 2

So in large Corps u hv 10 org layers at least of management before u can get a person who can code with recent knowledge and still v want to teach code ? Also most of these 10 layers hv never coded. They just did high level stuff.

Yes, "hello world" is a joke program so does not count.

Perfect burn down chart

If the result of your work is a smooth, perfect, regular and continuous burn down chart. I pity your team and your profession. You are still in that mindset which believe robots and not humans estimate and work.

If with humans u still r able to get a smooth chart, then ur work is too monotonous/unappealing/not innovative to challenge the estimation process.

U r still hunting for an efficient six sigma process in this disruptive world were pivots, spikes & fail fast r the methods to beat the competition. Pls stop using and then blaming agile.

Digital shunners & digital world

Once a leader saw me wearing a bluetooth haedset & stated he won't be assimilated, referring to the borg from star trek. Tough time for those leaders who shunned technology during the last decade and now have to drive it as their company decides to go digital and move into platforms and monetizing apps. They look uncomfortable and out of place. Can a person who neither understands or is able to figure out the new platforms of information build a strategy for something similar ? Is their company taking a big risk by putting them in the driver seat ? Only time will tell and hope it does not run out for these companies.

Wow ! mariadb j driver is faster or ...

Just played around in fuse with queries/s metrics on mysql. After a lot of dbcp tuning got it to 4k/s.

The just for the heck of it switched to mariadb j connector. 5k/s !
How ? Why ?
Have checked many times. Same result. No idea.

Also if dbcp2 can't load your driver just create a bean and give it the ref. It will work !

Basic ds is way faster than shared pool ds and put the password in conn props to hide from jmx.
