Gerenciando projetos com “SCRUM”

Quando você se senta para pensar sobre a sua USP – Unique Selling Proposition –  que dá ao seu Web Design e Desenvolvimento de negócios uma vantagem competitiva sobre outras empresas, Preço, Qualidade, Eficiência e Confiabilidade são métricas óbvias que você vai considerar. Para fazer isso, há vários processos que precisam ser colocados em prática e hoje vamos explorar um aspecto muito crítico.

Gerenciamento de Projetos é extremamente crítico para qualquer negócio, muito menos ao Design e Desenvolvimento de Negócios. As noções básicas de gerenciamento de projetos incluem:

  • Avaliando o trabalho recebido
  • Racionalização de projetos
  • Atribuição de tarefas à equipe
  • Gerenciando a comunicação com o cliente para requisitos
  • Alocação de recursos
  • Definição de prazos e metas
  • Gerenciamento de tempo

Para qualquer negócio funcionar sem problemas e profissionalmente, especialmente em uma indústria como a nossa, alguma quantidade de gerenciamento de projetos é necessária. Se você está pensando em começar seu próprio web design / agência de desenvolvimento ou uma pequena empresa, gerenciamento de projetos é uma grande habilidade de ter.

Tomando a gerência de projeto um passo adiante, eu gostaria de lhe apresentar a SCRUM para você como um desenvolvedor de software.

O que é SCRUM Management?

O processo SCRUM foi criado por Jeff Sutherland em 1993, depois de ter emprestado o termo “scrum” de uma analogia apresentada por Takeuchi e Nonaka em um estudo de 1986. O estudo comparou as equipes de alto desempenho, cross-funcional para a formação scrum em jogos de rugby.

Em termos simples, SCRUM é uma ferramenta de gerenciamento de projetos de software. É muitas vezes referido como um “modelo de desenvolvimento de software ágil” baseado em várias equipes menores que trabalham interdependentemente e intensamente em um projeto.

Quais são as vantagens de uma abordagem SCRUM de gestão?

  • Projeta um outlook profissional aos clientes
  • Melhora a eficiência de todas as equipes
  • Propõe a disciplina de módulos realistas
  • O processo de revisão permite que todas as equipes avaliem seu progresso e permaneçam comprometidas com a meta

Ele traz estrutura ao processo, permitindo feedback, melhorias regulares e contínuas

Isso resulta em maior ROI através de opiniões diretamente de partes interessadas, menos defeitos de custo, menos desperdício de trabalho e esforço, implantações mais rápidas e custo reduzido de falha

Como um profissional na indústria do projeto e do desenvolvimento da correia fotorreceptora, como este benefício você? Adotar um método de gerenciamento de projeto certificado pode ser um ponto de grande passo quando você conhecer potenciais clientes!

Por que Gerenciamento de Projetos – O Estudo de Caso da Ferrovia Holandesa

A ferrovia holandesa estava entre as mais usadas no mundo, fornecendo transporte para 1,2 milhão de passageiros por dia. A ferrovia holandesa queria construir um novo sistema de informação para entregar aos viajantes informações mais precisas que exigiam menos intervenção manual. Depois de ter falhado com uma equipe anterior usando a técnica de cachoeira tradicional, eles contrataram uma equipe (composta de holandeses e índios) para construir um sistema PUB (publicar) que controla as informações e exibe transmissão de áudio em todas as estações.

Usando a técnica SCRUM, o primeiro passo da equipe foi decidir como fazer programação de pares, usar ferramentas, metas de qualidade, horas de núcleo etc.

Na primeira rodada de iterações, a equipe provou ser capaz de construir, testar e demonstrar lojas de usuário. Isso agradou o cliente porque:

  1. Os progressos foram demonstrados anteriormente
  2. O cliente teve mais controle sobre o curso do projeto
  3. Em termos de software, os resultados positivos foram:
  4. A manutenção do sistema foi excelente
  5. A qualidade do código foi muito alta

Em geral, a técnica SCRUM ajudou a equipe a oferecer resultados de alto nível com maior satisfação do cliente, menos desperdício de recursos e um software totalmente funcional.

Em que tipo de projetos SCRUM é utilizado?

  • Software comercial
  • Desenvolvimento interno
  • Desenvolvimento de jogos de vídeo
  • Construção do site
  • Telefones celulares e muito mais

Quais são as “cerimônias” no SCRUM?

Existem essencialmente 4 amplos processos na gestão SCRUM:

Planejamento do Sprint: Um termo-chave no gerenciamento do SCRUM é ‘um sprint’, que é uma iteração que é restrita a uma duração específica. A duração de cada sprint é decidida antes de mão com 2 semanas sendo o mais comum. O processo envolve uma reunião de planejamento de equipe para decidir o que deve ser concluído durante o próximo sprint.

Stand-up diário: É por vezes referido como uma reunião min-scrum. Esta é uma reunião de 15 minutos para a equipe de software para se certificar de que eles estão no caminho certo.

Sprint Demo: Uma reunião onde as diferentes equipes se juntam para acompanhar o seu progresso no projeto

Retrospectiva Sprint: Esta reunião envolve uma reflexão sobre o passado sprint, as falhas e as realizações e ações para tornar o próximo sprint melhor.

Quão popular é SCRUM?

Existem mais de 375.000 certificadas SCRUMMasters em todo o mundo. SCRUM é um processo comprovado e escalável para gerenciar projetos de software. SCRUM tornou-se um dos quadros de gestão mais reconhecidos para o desenvolvimento de software especialmente para aqueles projetos com altas exigências. É usado em todo o mundo pelas empresas Fortune 500. SCRUM tem sido usado pela Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Apple, IBM e muito mais.

Se você usou SCRUM, gostaríamos de ouvir sua experiência e suas histórias de sucesso com esta técnica nos comentários abaixo.

Ctrl+F5 Hyderabad 2016: In A Nutshell

Ctrl+F5 Hyderabad in association with .BIZ & .CO was our last WDD event of 2016, which made it all the more a day to remember. It was great to see a generous number of people join us at the Radisson Blu Hitec City. This was our second venture down south, and there was a lot to share and learn as well from our attendees.

Owing to the unprecedented response that we had received in Mumbai, Crystal & Simran took to Hyderabad as well with Aditee Rele and Ronak Samantray debuting our design and development summit. Let’s have a look at what went down at Ctrl+f5 Hyderabad.

1)Aditi Rele (Microsoft India): Intelligent Applications

 which made it all the more a day to remember Ctrl+F5 Hyderabad 2016: In A Nutshell

Aditi Rele leads technical evangelism at Microsoft India. She says that today’s computers expect everything to be interconnected and everything to be personalized. She draws a stellar comparison between machine-centric (desktops) and human-centric (Mobile devices) and how we’re moving towards a new era of computing in which technology has a more humane approach.

What needs to be done?

We need to rethink human interaction by enabling it to have a more humane approach, just like having the 5 senses of the human body.

How can this be achieved?

  1. We need to take human emotions, gestures, facial expressions, tone of speech and integrate it with AI (natural interactions)
  2. By making technology should adapt to you (mobility of experience)
  3. Creating trust with users because this nature of computing is on a very personal level

“It’s not only about focusing on consumer applications and letting business applications in the back-seat. Intelligent applications should permeate through every industry.”

2) Crystal Peterson: The Evolution of Naming

 which made it all the more a day to remember Ctrl+F5 Hyderabad 2016: In A Nutshell

Crystal’s session kicked off at around 11 AM where she spoke about the evolution of the naming business and the importance of being at the forefront of learning how to recommend and build websites on the ‘non dot-coms’. She gave a brief history on domain names. When there are over 500 gTLDs to choose from and new ones cropping up daily, finding a domain name to fit your business and the right time to choose a name is a challenge. She also stated that naming with new gTLDs helps to create new marketing doorways.

We took a breather from 1PM to 2PM for lunch & during our meal, we were able to meet with the speakers, professionals from different backgrounds and others from the design and development industry.

3) Ronak Samantray – Kitsune: The Future of Business Website Design

 which made it all the more a day to remember Ctrl+F5 Hyderabad 2016: In A Nutshell

“An average business changes its website once in 3 years in comparison to a social media platform where you get to fresh content every time you go back to it.”

That’s why businesses have adopted Facebook owing to freedom to personalize as well as the fact that each account (individual or business) is a separate entity.

Ronak spoke about how websites need to be versatile by having fresh content, the ability to share information on different platforms, shopping assistance, etc to cater the various needs of users.

4) Simran Talreja (Product Manager, Endurance International Group): Design Thinking

 which made it all the more a day to remember Ctrl+F5 Hyderabad 2016: In A Nutshell

While design thinking has been abuzz for some time – in this session Simran went beyond concepts and helped our attendees to learn newer, more practical ways to apply Design thinking  to our everyday work. It was more of a group discussion and ideating method than a speaker session. Through this, Simran helped the attendees in learning how to equip themselves with the right set of tools and approaches of how to build great products for their clients.

Some highlights:

  • Design Thinking is a human-centric, it’s approach is lateral such that it helps in solving problems and often helps to innovate
  • Designers and developers are not just building technology but building solutions for human beings
  • The process: Empathize > Define > Ideate > Prototype > Test
  • Empathizing through observation, interviewing & experiencing
  • Idealization involves coming up with a variety of solutions
  • Prototyping means that you have to visualize your ideas
  • Testing involves trying out high-resolution versions of your prototypes

We were glad to have ended the year on such a strong note and are looking forward to meeting you next year at Ctrl+F5!

The future of AngularJS: Is it worth learning?

What is AngularJS?

AngularJS is a Javascript framework which can be added to an HTML page with <script> tag maintained by Google. It is used to build powerful, interactive websites with sleek animations to offer pleasant user experiences. There have been significant improvements and changes between versions 1.0 and 1.3 and version 2.0 is currently being worked on. Its comparable siblings include Ember, Polymer, Backbone.Js and others however, the popularity of AngularJS has risen significantly in the past couple of years and so has the demand for developers.

The graph below is an indicator of the fact the AngularJS has seen massive growth (Source: Indeed Job Trends)

AngularJS is a Javascript framework which can be added to an HTML page with  The future of AngularJS: Is it worth learning?

 

So why pick AngularJS?

While there are new frameworks rolled out everyday, AngularJS doesn’t seem to lose its popularity to competitor frameworks. Not only are developers sticking to AngularJS, a lot of developers are adopting this coding framework because:

  • Makes tasks like binding, templating, routing, unit testing etc. much simpler
  • Eliminates efforts put to build slow, hard to maintain applications
  • There isn’t a need to use observable functions since Angular analyses the page DOM and builds the bindings based on the Angular-specific element attributes.
  • Angular allows for multiple ways to do the same things, accommodating various development styles and tasks
  • Supported by IntelliJ IDEA and Visual Studio .NET IDEs.
  • Supported by Google and a great development community.
  • It feels very natural to me to design dedicated services, create modules with abstract classes and implementations (ie to provide different persistency providers like firebase or cloudboost) with well designed API.
  • Having static typings being used in Angular internals make it also more readable and easier to understand even if AngularJS 2 is even bigger and complex framework in compare to the 1.x.
  • Supports multiple languages

A lot of developers today use AngularJS but the question that’s on our minds is, what is the future of this code with the rapidly changing technology? Let’s take a look at how this framework stands its ground against advances in technology and the future:

Better Management, HTTP communication support

AngularJS started with pure XHR request support (through $http and $resource).

What we can expect with the new version:

  • Support for Http communication (using ngHttp), Local Storage, Session Storage, and IndexedDB access and WebSocket API.
  • Enable building of offline-first applications, which would be able to check connectivity status, cache data offline, and more.
  • Better management of offline access, querying network, routing, fetching pages and so on.

AngularJS 2.0 in ECMAScript 6

The entire AngularJS 2.0 code will be written in ES6 but will compile into standard ES5 using Traceur compiler. AngularJS is also adding support for annotations and assertions into the Traceur compiler, so that the application you write can be even more declarative even though it is an AngularJs application, by just adding annotations instead of any other syntax.

Keeping up with speed

The no. 1 demand of 21st Century … fast food, fast load speed and fast Internet. Can AngularJS keep up? The version 2.0 is focused on speed. Object.observer is a proposal to add native support for model change listeners and data binding. AngularJS 2.0 will totally use this to significantly speed up the whole data-binding and update cycle. Although Object.observe is only supported by Chrome, currently, AngularJS folks are working towards improving the checking for objects and arrays without the need for Observe.object support in the browser.

Routing made Flexible

Routing was a core of AngularJS 1.0 but became optional in the new version. With version 2.0, the aim is to bring in some features like nested states, sibling views into the core AngularJS router.

  • State-based transitions: UI-Router allowed for this, but it wasn’t part of the core routing module of AngularJS. So sub-states, sibling states where different parts of the views corresponded to different states of the URL / application will be declaratively and simply specified as part of the routing in AngularJS 2.0.
  • Security & Authentication: Resolves in AngularJS made this possible but Angular JS 2.0 aims to introduce an easy to understand way of authentication & authorization. For example, a user needs to be logged in,only those with admin rights can access a certain pages, only members of a certain group can navigate to the admin section etc.
  • Preserve state during transitions allowing state transitions to be faster & more optimal without erasing old routes and the need for recreation.

Where can you learn?

As you can tell, AnuglarJS is most definitely here to stay but can you keep up? Here are some great tutorials and material to help you get acquainted with the framework.

  1. Egghead’s video tutorials are a great learning source with over 190 free AngularJS videos that range from 2-10 minutes.
  2. You can also learn from w3schools.
  3. Year of Moo covers the basics of Angular JS.
  4. Codeacademy teaches you Angular basics, controllers, directives etc. It also throws some challenges within the editor.
  5. Learn with tutorials from Turtorialspoint with examples and live demos.
  6. Thinkster splits Angular topics into 12 parts with reading material from other sites and the official Angular doc.

Madewithangular has some examples of projects built with AngularJS to show you just how cool the framework is.

Alternatives to AngularJS

Just in case you aren’t very impressed with this framework yet or don’t want to wait for version 2.0, Alternativeto lists out some open source frameworks that you could work with. Here are some, to name a few.

  1. Vue.js: Fast & intuitive platform to help build interactive interfaces
  2. Ember.js: Intuitive integrated templates automatically update with data changes
  3. Polymer: Lets you create custom HTML elements with latest web technologies
  4. React: A JavaScript library
  5. Backbone.js: Provides structure to JS heavy applications through custom events & key-value binding

You can see the entire list here.

The new version of AngularJS will empower developers to create websites that are future-proof and technologically advanced. Assessing the above, it’s clear that AngularJS could be a framework that’s here to stay.

How to successfully incorporate minimalism in web design

The objective of designing is not just to make the website or the paper look good but to successfully portray what the brand is to the target audience, visually. This also includes minimum amount of effort on part of the designer and maximum amount of result, which gets us to today’s topic, “Minimalism”.

Minimalism is a concept which helps you to successfully draft a message for your audience by using minimum elements and efforts and yet helps in evoking stimulus.

Many of today’s designs such as flat design, large background images etc have come up from the concept of minimalism. Minimalism is a web design movement which began in the early 2000’s and has been adopted by designers ever since.

Minimalism is about an attempt made to compute and prioritize content over the chrome, and if done correctly, it can help simplify your task and focus more on your design. There have been misconceptions about minimalism amongst web designers because of which they try and cut the important information, which then kills the entire purpose of minimalism. This leads to increasing the complexity rather than reducing it.

 

The objective of designing is not just to make the website or the paper look good but to s How to successfully incorporate minimalism in web design

 

In order to understand minimalism better and apply it more effectively, we need to understand its origin and its characteristics.

First things first, what is a minimalistic interface?

The main aim of minimalistic web design is to present content in a way that it is simple to understand. This can be achieved by concentrating more on the core content. It tries to simplify interfaces by removing the unnecessary elements that does not support users task. Minimalistic interface includes limited color palettes, flat textures and also the use of negative space. Minimalism is basically a reaction to the “maximalist” user interface.

Rise of Minimalism 

Before minimalism became a web design trend, it was an art movement in the time frame which followed the World War II. It then emerged  because of the chaotic colors and motions which were often found in abstract art work.  In the 1960s minimalism gained popularity and was used in different fields like architecture and fine arts.  

Minimalism was also adopted by the pop culture and hey worked very well for the movie business and later posters started coming up which started depicting the meaning of the movie and what it included.

Graphic designer such as Josef Müller-Brockmann, painter Ellsworth Kelly, and industrial designer Dieter Rams and many more have adopted minimalism in their works.

“Less is more” is the motto which clearly depicts the perspective behind minimalistic art which was put forth by the famous 20th century architect, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. This motto later became a trend amongst web designers who used fewer elements on a page.

Later, at the end of the 20th century, the concept of data-ink ratio came up. Data-ink ratio is basically the ratio between the ink used to convey the information and the total ink used to print the graphic.

In the beginning of the year 2000, minimalism was adopted by many and the use of negative space, less content and confined color palettes.  

Later in the year 2011, Microsoft came up with Windows 8 which was the first major redesign in the operating system in decades followed by Apple revamping iOS with a much flatter and minimalistic design.

The trend has been going on ever since.

White Space and its beauty in minimalism

White space, also referred to as negative space is a portion of the page which is left unmarked. This term has been derived from graphic design practice, where the printing process is generally done on white paper.  White space is an important concept in minimalism, since it enables the user to concentrate thoroughly on the content without getting distracted. The use of white space or the negative space is the key to aesthetic composition.

Content can get very brief when it comes to a minimalist layouts or can even have lengthy and detailed concept. Apple’s website design is made by adopting the minimalist interface approach where you will see the use of white space a lot. This helps the user to focus just on the content and on the image, keeping any kind of disturbance away from the user’s vision. Aesthetic white space also plays a strong role in single-page layouts. All of the website’s content can be found on the homepage, so the design uses extra white space to cultivate distance.

The landing page of Beatbox Academy has minimalist design qualities. From the kind of  typography used, to the images and even the navigation button, are perfectly put out against the plain background, using the concept of white space.

Tips for incorporating a successful minimalist interface

The objective of designing is not just to make the website or the paper look good but to s How to successfully incorporate minimalism in web design

You must consider if the minimalist approach is the right kind of approach for your website and business. Conduct a thorough research before adopting this approach. If you finalise on using the minimalist approach, you must keep the following things in mind:

  • Always remember that “Less is more” and don’t try and add elements which are not required, be it for content, visual design or feature decisions.
  • Think about what the customers of your clients think of the brand and product and make sure to incorporate these aspects in your minimalistic design to convey the message loud and clear.
  • Have a dramatic typography so that equal emphasis is added to the content of the website and more users are attracted to the kind of content you put up.

Along with creating minimalist design for the website, make sure you pay an equal amount of attention to the navigation options. Navigation options are something that are ignored by most because the whole idea of minimalism revolves around designing. In order to make it more attractive and making the user experience easy, one must make sure that the navigation button also gets a minimalist makeover.

Let’s take an example :

Copy Boy has incorporated minimalism in their navigation which makes it very easy for the user to navigate through the page.

 And finally, why should you incorporate minimalism?

The objective of designing is not just to make the website or the paper look good but to s How to successfully incorporate minimalism in web design

  1. Minimalism forces you to polish your message and convey it better to the users. It helps to cut down on content and visuals which are add ons and can distract users from the main content. Every element on the web page becomes more deliberate and very element helps to serve a purpose.
  2. Since the amount of clutter on your web page reduces because of minimalism, it helps you convey your USP much better. It conveys what exactly you or your brand does, keeping confusion away.
  3. Your customers get breathing space because of the negative space on your website. It does not make the customers feel rushed to the next page and gives them the time to take in whatever you have to serve them.

Most of what I’ve written above, comes under good design principles, but these often get skipped due to the time constraints or due to favor of convenience. Minimalisms encourages you to take conscious designing decision and will make you question the existence and use of each element and each source on your page.

Just make sure that minimalism is the right choice for your company and your product and make concise decisions and you’re good to go.

Hyderabad: In the Words of a Tourist Hyderabadi

When the 2016 ICANN event was announced to be in Hyderabad, I was stoked. Hailing from Hyderabad but having lived the past 16 years in Mumbai brought fond memories of biryani, Charminar, summer holidays, my ‘Tata’ (grandad) and my ancestral home. While Hyderabad meant memories, as a teenager from Mumbai, having discovered a passion for traveling, places and food, the city became more than just home away from home. I began to see it from a new light. I take the liberty to share with you my experiences of the city … a mix of the Hyderabad I knew as a child and the Hyderabad I know as a traveler. Here’s what Hyderabad is to me & what you should catch if you make your way to the enchanted city:

Ramoji Film City: This is 1500 acres of film studio and entertainment. If you make your way to Hyderabad, this is a must visit. Hailed as the largest integrated film city in the world, Ramoji also hosts natural and artificial attractions including an amusement park. Make sure you set aside a whole day to explore this place. There’s tons you can do here!

Charminar: Think Hyderabad and Charminar is probably going to be the first image that pops in your mind (or on Google). Charminar is a gorgeous monument and mosque that’s iconic of Hyderabad. I have a fond (and slightly hazy) memory of a day out with my father and my sister in Charminar more than 16 years ago. Bangles, steep spiral stairs, wafer thin rotis and other street food is what I remember best about that place.

Above is a picture of my sister and I in 1998 – barefoot and barely smiling with my front teeth missing but having enjoyed our day at Charminar.

Hyderabadi Biryani: It’s reputation precedes itself. The Hyderabadi biryani lives up to expectations. Marinated in curd and a power of typical India spices, the flavours come together beautifully, like nothing you’ve tasted before. I’m fortunate enough to have my mother (and my father) prepare this a couple of times a year for special occasions and celebrations. You cannot leave Hyderabad without tasting the biryani… at Paradise, Bawarchi or anywhere else you can find it!

Gachibowli stadium: I was fortunate to attend the Afro Asian Games while I was over for the summer in 2003. Although far out of the city, the stadium is one to visit. It has a huge capacity of 4000 people with a field size of 60m radius. More recently, it has hosted the Pro Kabaddi Season 2 & 3 matches. It has amazing facilities for swimming, hockey, badminton, skating and running.

Hussain Sagar: Hyderabad’s heart shaped lake (which I’ve grown up calling ‘Tank Band’) spreads across 5.7sq kilometers, is fed by River Musi and divides Hyderabad from its twin city, Secunderabad. A monolithic statue of Gautama Buddha stands in the middle of the lake. This October, when I made my annual visit to the city, it was hard not to notice the Indian flag standing 291 feet tall on the banks of Hussain Sagar. Erected just this June and touted as the 2nd tallest flag in all of India (some say first), it’s a sight to behold! While at Tank Bund, make your way to Lumbini Park where you can take a speed boat on the lake, relax on a slow boat or just hang around the musical fountain but you cannot miss the Laser show which recreates cities in 3D.

Pack your bags as you make your way to the ICANN event, explore the Nizam land while you’re there and I promise, you won’t be disappointed 🙂
