posted in: Misc | 4

Rashina Hoda, senior lecturer from the University of Auckland and James Noble, professor from the Victoria University of Wellington received the coveted Distinguished Paper Award this year at the IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE), the most prestigious publication venue in software engineering, with an acceptance rate of less than 16%. The distinguished paper award is presented to the top 10% of the accepted papers in recognition of excellent research. They received the award for their paper “Becoming Agile: A Grounded Theory of Agile Transitions in Practice” at the conference held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Agile software development is the largest paradigm shift to occur in the software industry over the last two decades. Despite its popularity, software teams are still seen to struggle with initial adoption and continued practice. In her study of new and experienced agile teams, Rashina identified that teams become agile across a complex network of on-going transitions across multiple dimensions. These include not only software development practices, as commonly assumed but also team practices, management approach, reflective practice, and culture. The theory of becoming agile explains the fundamental process by which traditional software teams transition across these five dimensions and the relationship between these dimensions.

Catch the action!

  2. A Biological Masterpiece, But Subject to Many Ills
    The human foot is a biological masterpiece. Its strong, flexible, and functional design enables it to do its job well and without complaint—if you take care of it and don’t take it for granted.
    healthThe foot can be compared to a finely tuned race car, or a space shuttle, vehicles whose function dictates their design and structure. And like them, the human foot is complex, containing within its relatively small size 26 bones (the two feet contain a quarter of all the bones in the body), 33 joints, and a network of more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, to say nothing of blood vessels and nerves.

  3. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know
    this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
