Good talks/podcasts (Dec 2020 II)


 These are the best podcast/talks I've seen/listen to recently:

  • AgileByExample 2017: Donald Reinertsen - Making Money with Variability (Donald Reinertsen) [Lean Product Management, Product, Product Strategy] Interesting talk where Donald explains why, unlike in Lean Manufacturing, we can exploit the variability to innovate and achieve better outcomes in product development.
  • Beyond Features: rethinking agile software delivery (Dan North) [Agile, Inspirational, Lean, Lean Software Development] (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) Maybe we've been thinking about delivery all wrong. Maybe features aren’t the point after all. Maybe there are other kinds of work that we should recognise, schedule and track as first class citizens. Maybe this could take some of the uncertainty out of the delivery process, and give us back our sanity. Maybe.
  • GOTO 2020 • When To Use Microservices (And When Not To!) (Sam Newman, Martin Fowler) [Architecture, Architecture patterns, Evolutionary Design, Microservices] Interesting conversation about tradeoffs to be considered for using a microservices architecture.
  • SLO TheoryWhy the Business needs SLOs (Danyel Fisher, Nathen Harvey) [Observability, Operations, Technical Practices] (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) Great explanation about SLI, SLOs, error budgets and how to introduce them to improve our production operations.
Reminder, All these talks are interesting even just listening to them, without seeing them.
