Shameless Organizations

Scrum.org

An organization is a group of people. An organization is not a physical entity but a network of people. Without those people the organization doesn’t exist. If an organization has a culture of publicly shaming its people, I call it a Shameless Organization. You may have heard many horror stories from your friends and colleagues about job switching because of the shaming culture in their organization.

Democratizing AI for All: Transforming Your Operating Model to Support AI Adoption

Democratization puts AI into the hands of non-data scientists and makes artificial intelligence accessible to every area of an organization. With the emergence of enterprise AI platforms that automate and accelerate the lifecycle of an AI project, businesses can build, deploy, and manage AI applications to transform their products, services, and operations. But in order to reap the rewards that AI offers, it is essential that businesses first address how their organizations are set up, from their people to their processes. Democratizing AI through your organization requires more than just software. It may require changing your operation models and finding the right guidance to realize the full breadth of capabilities.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

Organization

The Programmer's Paradox

Organization applies both to the output, such as the data and code, and to the processes used for all five stages of software development. What is organization? With the first two rules it is clear that to be organized you need to define a rather large number of places and categorize all data and code into 'everything'. Particularly if you have some overwhelming 'philosophy' for the organization. Everything in one place must be 'similar' or it just isn't organized.
