Arthur Doler talks about retrospectives and how to make them better.

Note that this was recording at the Indy.Code() conference in a hallway, so the audio may be a bit noisier than usual.

Also, SPECIAL THANKS to the great David Giard (who has been on the show before: Episode 6 and Episode 15, and he's also the host of the excellent Techology and Friends show, of which my podcast is a pale imitation) who gave me some new podcasting equipment that I used in this episode. I am extremely grateful, but I'm still trying to figure out how best to use this equipment (which may be obvious in this episode).

Show Notes:

Want to be on the next episode? You can! All you need is the willingness to talk about something technical.

Theme music is "Crosscutting Concerns" by The Dirty Truckers, check out their music on Amazon or iTunes.

Welcome to another "Weekly Concerns". This is a post-a-week series of interesting links, relevant to programming and programmers. You can check out previous Weekly Concerns posts in the archive.

  • Need a real API for demonstrating Ajax stuff? Check out The Example API. It provides all kinds of methods (GET, POST, etc), content responses (JSON, JSONP, XML, etc), response codes (404, 500, etc). Great for cross-domain testing, and it's what I used for my jsonp example post.
  • Something to think about: Why Link Shorteners Harm Your Readers
  • How to create better cards (in Pivotal, LeanKit, whatever card tracking/PM system you're using). I find the idea of gherkin/cucumber tests in the card to be an intriguing one.
  • Need a dummy placeholder image? Use dummyimage.com to get them dynamically.

Ever experience the new wave? Next wave? Dream wave? Flava flav? A guy named Dave? Men's aftershave? A voodoo conclave? 12 Years a Slave? Shortwave? OR CYBERPUNK!? Ever stared at a CRT wistfully?

I didn't think so.

If you have an interesting link that you'd like to see in Weekly Concerns, leave a comment or contact me.
