At our last Women’s Tech Focus event – WTF is…Leadership? we had the first person outside of 101 Ways take part in our WTF Standup initiative. That brave woman was Aj Wilson – QA Engineer, unicorn and all-round champion of women. Oh, and did we mention she can also deliver babies? Her talk focused on leadership and how you can
I’ve suffered with anxiety throughout most of my life, but it wasn’t until a decade ago that I even knew that’s what it was. And oddly, I have Peter Andre to thank for that. While it would be fair to assume that another chart comeback post-Insania / A Whole New World remake is enough to cause nightmares, it wasn’t that.
Note: Thanks to minutephysics for the primer that allowed me to make this article and for making it a lot easier for me to learn about this. Having started the journey of learning as much as I can about quantum computing, I decided that the next step is to try and gain an understanding of something practical. There has been
I’m on one of our client sites to meet Sonny Lam: Data Explorer, Scrum Master and lounge wear extraordinaire. While I like my interviewees to feel relaxed, I’ll admit this is the first time I’ve ever questioned someone wearing slippers, and Pokémon ones at that. But whatever gets the job done, right? I had promised to bring custard creams, but
My mother calls me several times during the day and when I answer it’s usually to tell me about the latest Duchess of Sussex gossip or something silly my brother has done. And yet every time I have to say the same thing: “Mum, I’m at work, I can’t talk now”. I guess it’s funny for our parents to think
Moore’s law is over. As it stands today, we’re pushing up against the laws of nature, the physical limits of how you can construct a transistor – atomic limits. Currently, the best fabrication methods from Intel have produced transistors of 14nm in size, and nVidia have gone slightly better with 12nm. Although they are expected to shrink to around 5-7nm
Remember how Beyoncé could help you network? Well according to professional community builder and speaker at our last WTF event Samantha Hepburn, so can the slogans of global sports brands. In terms of excuses, Sam has heard them all, from the clichéd (and mistaken!) ‘I have nothing to offer’ to the more nuanced fears that come with being introverted or anxious.
For a few years now, the development approach has been that engineers are responsible for the quality of their code and the solution. Meanwhile, QA staff are responsible for testing the quality of the product. ‘QA in Dev’ is an approach aimed at making all engineers responsible for the quality of the product as well as the code – this
I can’t quite believe it’s been a year since I took the bull by the horns, jumped aboard the 101 Ways ship and set sail for Europe. Steering our overseas expansion, we arrived in The Netherlands, and opened our first European office in Amsterdam. Despite The Netherlands – particularly Amsterdam where we’re based – being renowned for its liberalism and
As we help companies through complex periods of transformation, I wanted take a deep dive into the concept of ‘vision’, previously touched upon by Kelly Waters. Particularly exploring how it plays a key role in helping people understand the link between the change and a company’s success or survival. Why is vision needed? Every startup or organisation needs to have
Whether you’re inheriting a mature team, have new people joining an existing one, or are fortunate enough to build a new team from scratch, you’d want to make sure that it is healthy, happy, aligned, and motivated. As people come from various backgrounds and experiences, and with the world moving towards more remote working especially with the impact of Coronavirus,
I have been talking to a few people recently about industry buzzwords. There seems to be an increasing number of mock variations on Test Driven Development (TDD) as a means of describing the ever-changing – and somewhat erroneous – driving factors behind development.
