Google Doodle: New Planets Discovered!

Google Doodle, hobbies and interests, the world today

Have you seen the new Google Doodle today? It is a cool and colorful illustration/video of 7 cute planets saying hello. This is to celebrate the 7 planets that are discovered recently. Experts say that they are about the same size as our planet, Earth, and they all orbit closely together around the star named Trappist-1. They are also saying liquid water, as well as signs of life, might just be found in the surface of these planets.

How cool it would be like to discover new things, right? We all are a bit small and we discover something new everyday + each discovery is just as exciting as the last one. It would be fun to know more about these new planets as we grow to know more about our own. We have yet to talk about these topics in school + I cannot wait to learn about them!

Are You Excited About The Lego Batman Movie?

announcement, movies, my favorite things, Batman, superheroes

I absolutely loved The Lego Movie shown in 2014, that is why I was very excited when I found out about The Lego Batman movie! Batman is one of my favorite DC superheroes {I’ve watched his Lego short films many times + love playing his Lego games, too!} and it will be a treat to see him on the big screen with mum + dad.

The Lego Batman Movie is hitting local cinemas on 09 February and will feature Will Arnett {who also voiced our caped hero in the first Lego film} as the voice of our favorite Gotham City son, Bruce Wayne, + the caped crusader, Batman. The story will be all about Batman going “on a personal journey to find himself and learn the importance of teamwork and friendship in the hopes of saving Gotham City from a hostile takeover set by The Joker” according to Wikipedia. The film will also feature the voices of Jonah Hill {Green Lantern} + mum’s fave, Ralph Fiennes as our favorite butler, Alfred.

This sure will be an exciting film + I cannot wait to see the bat dude battle his archenemy, The Joker. Are you excited, too! Will have mum check local cinema times for this film after she’s reading about this interesting website, http://www.guitarcenter.com/Toontrack/.

Ideas to Balance Innovation + Technical Debt

grown up stuff, guest post, tips and tricks, technology

Whilst technical debt and innovation take place side by side, there are other sources of challenges to consider in order to achieve good product management. You might wish to deliver new things to your clients while the developers wish to design new features. The QA section might be all pepped to test the new specifications, and the marketing and sales team are all pumped up to speak about the new features in their promotional campaign. In short, while the end is to deliver a quality product to your customers, there are too many things to consider and take care of before you can do so.

With the addition of a new feature, along with it comes a complexity expense. It is yet another thing to be added to the testing matrix. It is another inclusion which can either enhance or set-back dependencies. It is another addition which requires maintenance and could be a resource of tech debt in the future.

Complexity cost is the debt that occurs by complication of technology or features while solving problems. An app which performs twenty tasks is tougher to re-factor in comparison to the app which does one thing. Thus, changing of code in this will take longer. Often complexity is a basic expense but only companies which completely internalize the idea can hope to secure such spending. With the maturity of the product, new functionality calls up for a higher risk. When you aren’t just improving a present item, you’re kind of adding up a new widget which can bring down the value proposition, bug up your sales exertions, confuse users and suck sources away from the basic elements of your app.

And, when there is this natural tendency to just add features, it can easily cause feature bloating. (more…)
