Large Scale Web Site Goes Enterprise – The Secrets of Successful Web Brands

Here is my presentation from my presentation today at OOP Conference in Munich. The session outlined the evolution of a fictive but typical successful web enterprise from start up over scale out to a cost sensitive business with specialized teams, processes and product owners.
In an interactive workshop we drafted the evolution of the architectural challenges, driven by business needs, and how high scalable web architectures and classical enterprise architecture fit together.

Some stuff about GIT

GIT is an advanced (source code) versioning system. See some links and infos related to GIT here:

If you are interested in why git is hyped so much I suggest to understand the idea and new possibilities of distributed repositories. So, for git’s architecture I recommend the article here and after that I suggest to jump to Git Pro Book and check on Chapter 5.
Furthermore I suggest to take the warning in this article serious. It also gives a hint to use gerrit as tool for code reviews.
From my perspective release management strategy, build processes and tooling is part of both technical project management and architecture.
So, ambitious developers, be motivated to care about those aspects early!

Implementing SCRUM in a hostile environment as a success

Yesterday I had had a talk at Scrumtisch München / JBoss User Group Munich in front of  a very interested audience, giving interesting and sound feedback.

Topic covered was:
From a point of view that sees Scrum as a negotiotion framework and a methodology embedded in a larger social, organizational and commercial context I want to discuss the core questions to make the implementation of Scrum and agile methods a success. Those points mainly deal with management and top management that should empower projects to live the values of agile project methodologies.

Learning from roles and responsibilities of expert police negotiation teams an easy checklist can be derived to proof wether mangagement supports a transition or does the opposit. This gives also a transparency on the true source of fire if you and your team(s) are burned – or as manager what you can really do to support.”
