And so little time to write about it… I’ll try to focus on what was most interesting.
Microsoft announced some toys again …You’ve most likely already seen both tablets ("Surface") and Windows Phone 8. Plenty have been written on the web about them, so I’m not going to repeat all that. I just want to indicate two reasons why I’m a bit disappointed:
- Win8 tablets were supposed to remain at the cost level of Androids ones. Now it seems more like iPad level… WTF MSFT?!
- Denying upgrades from WP7.5 to WP8 without hardware change seems unfair for all those suckers (me included) who have bought devices with WP7/7.5. Doesn’t it?
Creators of SCRUM have published a new book on agile approach to software creation … If you’re already familiar with SCRUM, don’t bother. SCRUM is that simple that reading about it once is really enough. But if you haven’t, this book seems like a nice introduction: http://www.amazon.com/Software-Days-Customers-Competitors-ebook/dp/B007P6UPLG/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1340307136&sr=1-1
