The lone ranger

In this post I will discuss my Lone Ranger pattern, a type of human behavior of software engineers, and the impact I think it has on its surroundings. Now the lone ranger is obviously someone who mostly operates alone. Lone rangers get the job done by themselves and are counted upon to save the day. Alas, the day needs constant saving.


The Young Buck

In this post, I'll elaborate on what I identify as the Young Buck pattern. With my Wild West metaphor in mind, with the Young Buck I refer to the image of the young gunslingers that are just leaving home, stepping out into the big world. Usually, they are still full of high ideals and have a simplistic sense of justice. Unfortunately, their lack of real-world experience sometimes lets them get played for a fool.


Heroes

A post about heroics in software development. The heroic developers are often well respected by their peers and well known by management. But there are downsides...


A construction tale

In the software industry, the metaphor that is probably used the most for explaining things is the construction of buildings. A lot of our terminology relates to it. Building, architect, architecture, design, engineer. Unfortunately it is all too often that this metaphor falls short and doesn't really address the problem sufficiently.


Connecting legacy to kubernetes

In this blog post I'll demonstrate how to make applications that are external to a Kubernetes cluster available to the applications that are managed by K8s. This is useful for when we have started using Kubernetes to deploy and manage some your applications but not everything is managed at once.
