Yazılımcılar ile çalışan yöneticiler çok dikkatli olunuz. Yazılımcı denilen tip özellikle yöneticileri ile iletişimde olduğu zamanlarda narin, alttan alınması gereken, fikirlerine değer verildiğinin hissettirilmesi gereken ve aslen teknik konularda ve süreçlere ilişkin tespitlerine ve fikirlerine gerçekten değer verilmesi gereken bir tiptir. Yaptığı işlerin ve anlattığı şeylerin çoğu oldukça karmaşık ilişkiler içerip, yöne... [More]

Oh well... It seems that we are making the same old mistake again. It is hard to articulate my feelings about the trending tablet business. It feels like we are traversing the same path again. To be more clear I guess we again do what we did in the past when the PC business was in its early days.  History I'm relatively young and unexperienced character in this software business but as far as I remember from my readings about the evolution of the PC age once hardware vendors used to creat...

We have been using Jira at our office for 5-6 years or so. During this time I was a member of the development team and was just an end user of Jira. After the recent change in my position I'm expected to use Jira as a management tool. Default installation of Jira comes with some defaults which will definitely help you but if you want to effectively manage your team and the job you have to fine tune your Jira setup.

This kind of approach is technically wrong and has some ethical problems. Pricing, differentiation, offering more functionality, advertising your product, special offers, sponsorships, using social media and all other regular tools can be used in competition but bla...
