Performance Budgets

Infrequently Noted I’m on a mission at the moment to bring in performance budgets at work. Page load speed has been disregarded for such a long time that it’s become a revolution to even get people thinking about it. Yet PB would complement all our KPIs – Engineering Quality and User Experience, among others. The…… Continue reading Performance Budgets

The Main Thread

When should you be using Web Workers? – DasSur.ma Very interesting article about workers and getting non UI tasks off the main thread – with justification (modern “cheap” phones), questioning modern UI frameworks that do all their virtual DOM diffing on the main thread, and some examples on how to shift off that model.

Dismissal

There’s a lot of complete dismissal of religion and god(s) when I chat with people. I’m not going to go into my beliefs here—At the moment I don’t assign myself to any religion. However, I do feel that these folk, because they don’t believe in god(s) are also denouncing many forms of spirituality because it’s…… Continue reading Dismissal

Moments of self doubt

I’m growing more confident but as work and pressures of deadlines build up I become uneasy. Doubt creeps into my thoughts. I have a feeling that says that I only got here by piggybacking on the success of others. I’m just a bystander that gets caught in the flow and somehow people think I was…… Continue reading Moments of self doubt

On being an introvert

I spend lots of time fighting against my own traits. While others are pitting their thoughts across in a meeting I have delved deeply into the first point, losing some of the later stuff. Not moving fast, considering everything and formulating my answer. Does this work in a fast paced Agile environment? How do I…… Continue reading On being an introvert

Open Source Abuse

(Open) source of anxiety – Increment: Open Source This talks about the reliance put on Open Source projects. Some of these projects are vital to the community, in this case Babel, and there is very little thanks back from the people who use it. When I say people, I mean large corporations who don’t offer…… Continue reading Open Source Abuse
