Fascinating or some what frustrating?

So many courses from different providers.

Which ones are politically correct?

Spending time, involves patience.

As we grow, time feels short.

It’s not always a simple as it looks.

Sure you can follow…

But there are obstacles along the way.

The kind that are not transparent in guidance.

Lessons learned, it will never be.

Acknowledging this…

The cycles of improvement are never-ending.

So the main thing to take from this…

You’re in control, you can’t please all, but you can align the balance with the majority.

Simplify processes not just for yourself, but for everyones case.

With simplicity comes flexible, growth, speed and expansion.

Navigate the play field.

Be your best in the given circumstances.

Die trying, you may get lucky.

Sometime it’s not clear

It’s not always clear what to expect when building software especially when you’re reliant on user stories that don’t describe the full story.

But then again, sometimes user stories can’t be clear without some visual concepts what the users needs.

From experience with visual concepts, many users thought this was it, concrete.

Maybe that’s because it’s down to how polished a design concept is.

Depending what you’re target audience is, it should be very basic to explain itself to the user what each element of a concept does.

Factor in the user’s knowledge of what they may currently know to build the amount of detail needed in the design concept.

We all have to remember that visuals are just concepts, therefore there may be some changes in the pipeline that weren’t considered back then and that they may need looking into present.

Trying a different approach without the visuals is another challenge.

So when you’re building from scratch it only makes sense somewhere along the line where smaller components fit together but still don’t describe what they do.

Adding titles, labels, icons makes sense.

Then you start to see a pattern of inconsistency delivered in Agile methodology, that’s where you’re suppose to constantly deliver.

Sometime it’s better to extend and add a sprint to rectify these issues before it gets complicated to work with.

Yes it adds some time to productivity, but would you rather have this or the latter?

I left the process.

Finally finding out you’re the only one with a technical mind, a logical system thinker.

Trying to make ends meet and continuing to learn as much as I could with the limited time I had in and out of office hours.

I didn’t see any clear opportunities left after knowing the learning qualifications were in another’s name.

The situation was just getting worse hiring external Back End Developers and my role slightly moving towards Project Management – not something that really interested me, but I had no choice.

I was at a breaking point; realising managing external developers is a nightmare. Set deadlines and external developers not responding in time for client expectations.

It was that time; I knew I couldn’t do anything more and thinking about the other colleagues in the moment of time and my personal activities – like my sister’s wedding preparations coming up…

I decided enough is enough; a much advance developer is needed for this role and with this in mind I handed my notice and continued to work till the end of the process.
