Let’s face it, we all yearn for greenfield projects. Is there anybody that doesn’t want a blank slate for a project, a chance to start something so pure, so thought out, the code itself reads out like a piece from the Struga Poetry Evenings, the architecture diagram worthy of a spot on your bedroom’s wall right next to the Lamborghini (or favorite boyband) poster?!

The problems will start to pile up pretty fast, pretty soon after the first building block is in place if you don't set some ground rules. …

Climate change is very much real and it is a major issue that outweighs any other problem that the world may be facing at the moment.

You got a product released, it caught the eyes of some sharks, dragons or angels and they decided to back you up… awesome. So you got your Series A banked, you celebrated, you rewarded your employees with bonuses and office pool tables and tap beer in the canteen… Congratulations, you finished the intro level. You are now in the game.

What’s the next step?! You…

DevSecOps and its tooling are a subject one can write tomes on. One blog post could not possibly do that. But a series of posts just might. So, hopefully, the creative juices will stick with me long enough to write a few posts like this one on topics that I think are of vital importance to anyone (individual or company) that wants to call themselves and their software “professional”.
