Laying bricks scales somewhat linearly. If one guy takes 4 weeks to build a house then you can add three more for a total of four people and expect the work to be done in 1 week. This works across a lot of different tasks and areas, but of course not infinitely. If we keep … Continue reading Linearly scalable work

I had driven past it several times and both seen it being constructed and finalised from the windows of my car. But I finally took the time to have … Continue reading Camp Adventure Tower Denmark
Building a solution from the start to be able to switch database can be a very smart move. In some cases it could be argued that too much software is built for re-usability and with layers of abstraction that are never actually used for anything. But in some cases it makes a lot of sense to make sure that you build your solution in a way that would afford you a good number of options going forward.

What problem does Request Manager API Pattern solve? Coding guidelines and code reviews are good ways to ensure code quality and enforce structure. But they also have their limitations. When time is in short demand and the lead developer/architect have no chance of keeping up with the new code being developed, the architecture, structure and … Continue reading Ensuring code quality for API’s with Request Manager API Pattern
