If I had my hand full of truth, I would take good care how I opened it

Draft

I’ve been playing with a lot of development work flow tools over the last few weeks. I was an early adopter of Docker and have always been passionate about reducing friction in the development process, especially locally. Quick performance wins for individual developers add up to substantial productivity improvements across a whole team. I’ve been interested in how these tools are evolving, as we expand beyond the basic tools Docker provided with containers.

Intro to Distributed Tracing

Over the last month, I’ve been testing distributed tracing frameworks and tools. For a long time now I’ve been deeply interested in seeing how the state of the art of tracing is evolving. I am especially interested in how long before it is something that more people can use without requiring deep knowledge and that they can quickly find useful. Reactions on this topic tend to be varied and divergent. There’s still a strong sense that tracing is an enormous investment with potentially limited returns for many organizations.

Building your first product road map

Building product road maps You have an amazing idea. You’ve taken the core concepts of your idea and turned them into a prototype, a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). The prototype is the first pass. It’s not pretty, nor complete, and often not tested. Frank Robinson said when he coined the MVP term: … think big for the long term but small for the short term. Think big enough that the first product is a sound launching pad for it and its next generation and the road map that follows, but not so small that you leave room for a competitor to get the jump on you.
