Sprint 3 – Retrospective

Sprint 3: 04/08/2020 – 05/04/2020 Sprint 3 preparation started on 04-08-2020. Since Sprint 3 was the final Sprint we were planning to get work done as much as possible. We proposed too many issues that were all appropriate, but we wouldn’t be able to finish them all on time, so we all agreed to keepContinue reading “Sprint 3 – Retrospective”

Share What You Learn

I can not overstate how much a generous spirit contributes to good luck. Look at the luckiest people around you, the ones you envy, the ones who seem to have destiny falling habitually into their laps. What are they doing that singles them out? It isn’t dumb luck if it happens repeatedly. If they’re anythingContinue reading “Share What You Learn”

Dig Deeper

In practice, algorithm problems do not arise at the beginning of a large project. Rather, they typically arise as subproblems when it suddenly becomes clear that the programmer does not know how to proceed or that the current program is inadequate. —Steven S.

Confront Your Ignorance

If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity of knowledge, of values, of attitudes, which our present system induces, then we may wish to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness, for self-direction, and for self-initiated learning. -Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person Every day of our lives, weContinue reading “Confront Your Ignorance”

Learn How You Fail

Ingenuity is often misunderstood. It is not a matter of superior intelligence but of character. It demands more than anything a willingness to recognize failure, to not paper over the cracks, and to change. It arises from deliberate, even obsessive, reflection on failure and constant searching for new solutions. -Atul Gawande, Better Learn how youContinue reading “Learn How You Fail”

Record what you learn

“You should not also underestimate the power of writing itself…You can lose your larger sense of purpose. But writing lets you step back and think through a problem. Even the angriest rant forces the writer to achieve a degree of thoughtfulness.” —Atul Gawande, Better Record what you learn has the purpose to make everyone ableContinue reading “Record what you learn”
