Breaking One Hundred

Running in the late-fall, mid-winter, and then early-spring months in Poland is quite shitty, to say the least. And I’m not talking about the weather. Sure, it’s cold, rainy, snowy, even icy at times. But giving up running due to -5 degrees Celsius outside is not reason enough to quit running. Keeping your lungs healthy…

Scrum is in the Air

On Monday I spent a few hours talkin’ Scrum with Agile On The Boat folk. AOTB is a pretty cool initiative that gathers around scrum masters, product owners, project managers, software developers, and anyone within Wroclaw’s software development scene to discuss the Agile Method. The topic of this weeks session was “Technically Aware Scrum Master”…

But it’s most definitely a first all-electric car-sharing service in the city and from what I can see around town, it’s the most popular one to boot. Vozilla uses Nissan Leafs as its vehicle of choice…

Hey, You!

Hey there. It’s been a while. How are things? You doin’ alright? How are the kids? Yeah OK, you’re right. I don’t really care about your kids. But after a prolongated period of absence on this blog I never really know how to hop back on the blogging bandwagon. So I needed something witty, if…
