## What kind of Computer Science matters?

Just came across Why Computer Science Matters? by Vugranam Sreedhar. He observes a decline in real computer scientists in favour of ‘commodity programmers’. Basically, I have to (sad but true) agree here, and would like to take a closer look … Continue reading

## Off Topic: Complexity Awareness in the Wild

On companies, software solutions, and what a business analyst can do for them – if they let him. Continue reading

## Sorry, I’m not infinite, I’m just complex

While dealing with infinity is more about the existence of a solution dealing with complexity is mainly about finding the optimal effort/ benefit trade-off … really? Continue reading

## Human centric Modelling

There is a modelling at the low-end, that we use every day a million times, and there is modelling at the high-end with comprehensive concepts like UML, MDD etc. Both are good to have. Perhaps approaching the modelling topic from the low-end would make it easier accessible for most of the software practitioners. Continue reading

Just reviewed my Twitter timeline of 2011: … (tweets, links, and wisdoms of the year) Continue reading

## Complexity Awareness is Cost Awareness

If “engineering is producing an artifact to cost”, then how can modelling contribute to it? Continue reading

## Complexity Aware Modelling II

Complexity aware people are able to recognize complexity, and regard it over things like size. How do they recognise? Mainly by modelling! Continue reading
