Personally speaking, 2018 is going to be a year of getting at least some Agile and DevOps adopted at work.
Step 1 – Get some tooling… Kicked off with Vagrant and commenced updating the brain from my previous php5 use to 7. So far so good.
Step 2 – Read up Jeff Patton’s User Story Mapping- Which does seem to stand up to it’s strap-line: “Discover the whole story, build the right product”. From reading this, “Shared understanding” will be my new catchphrase for the year.
Step 3 – Have a play with Docker…. first problem… otherwise trusty old mid 2009 Mac Book Pro:
$ sysctl kern.hv_support kern.hv_support: 0
So there’ll be no Docker practice on this machine.
Step 4 – Introduce work to some supporting tools: (JIRA, Confluence, Bitbucket)
Step 5 – Start using this stuff – Plenty of legacy work projects to migrate, and a couple of home projects.
This might be the excuse needed to justify updating my otherwise very long-lived Macs.
