The issue with DevOps certification

DevOps is hot. We know that because a DevOps certification just popup on the pas weeks. Claimed by the DevOps Institute(http://devopsinstitute.com/).  If you pay attention is very similar to the scrum certification and the devops community already start to wondering if this would be really possible to certify someone of doing "DevOps".  You can take your own conslusions checking out this link here => http://devopsinstitute.com/courses/ . You can read Sam Newman blog post here . So this raises all kinds of questions like what you think is DevOps or how easy is to make sure people are doing it right or worng and what would be the assessment criteria for the cert?

Learning how to Learn

Sometime ago i was wondering why people sometimes get stuff faster than others. Besides the time that every person have i belive there are some key thing if you do will definitely speed up the quality of your learning.

What i see is lots of developers just doing a kinda of shallow learnings or studies. Its like i code 1 thing with java 8 using a filter and streams and i assume i know java 8 and thats it. Most of this came from the lack of deep structure learning. Nobody wants take a master degree to be able to learn something but for sure most of times what people are doing are not enought.  It`s hard to say when is enought in sense of learning but at least we should cover all things that matter.

House of Cards: System Thinking issue around agile teams

I saw a bunch of things and had several experiences with agile and non-agile teams. This issue is something very usual for new teams or for people that are new with agile culture.  I'm calling this: House of Cards Anti-Pattern or metaphor is you prefer.

What you thing about building a house of cards in the top of sand? Sounds like a good idea? We'll that happens a lot - for several reasons. 

This metaphor is about people making solutions and decisions in sense of Design and Architecture with zero or poor idea about what the hack they are doing.

Learning: Sometimes is not about fun

We are this idea in IT thats just one kind of learning. This IDEA is wrong. We also associate 100% that FUN = LEARNING. So if we are not having fun? Are we learning? Some people could say no - worst than that - they give up - so if its not FUN i wont pay attention, i wont continue because clearly i`m not learning anything.

Some activities like CODING its cool, its fun and for sure you sometimes i dont see the diference between work and fun and learning they all look like the some thing.  Thats amazing but not only with FUN the man lives :-)

Most of my BIGGEST learning came from my BIGGEST failures, stress and NOT FUN at all moments. There is no single person in this world that does not suffer. Everybody suffer.  Some people suffer more than another ones but suffering does not make difference between the poor or the rich, the old or the new, the cool or the boring, the manager or the coder.
