We Were Born to Run: [In]stability and Velocity

Reading Time: 11 minutes As I expected an endless stream of tasks, one of the first things I needed as an engineering manager was to manage them. I needed to manage tasks and my team. As I was sprinting (pun intended) towards signing up to Jira, I halted my horses thinking to myself “you know how to use Jira, do you know why you use Jira?”.

Preface

Reading Time: 5 minutes What is this? It’s a book that is intended to be posted as a blog. Or maybe it’s a blog that is structured like a book. So I guess it’s a blok. Or maybe it’s a boog. I don’t know. We’ll see eventually what would come out of it. For real, since forever I’ve been writing articles.
