Writer’s Block

Like my grandmother always says, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”. Unfortunately, my grandmother never owned a blog and never stared with blank looks at a computer screen.

Don’t worry, the official codesqueeze moleskin still has numerous post ideas in it, I am just having trouble starting the engine back up after a very nice long vacation.

Got an idea or question? Comment, Email, or Twitter it! I would love it hear some new thoughts and ideas.

The Reward

  1. Your idea/question will be turned into a blog post (isn’t that reward enough?)
  2. The top 2 idea generators will be spot lighted in this month’s Developer Faceoff post.
  3. PLUS, there will be a super secret prize as well, something every geek would want (but I’m not telling, you’ll just have to submit an idea).

So throw some ideas my way. Help me codesqueeze readers…your my only hope…

P.S. – Like I said, don’t worry. I still have a ton of ideas but they are huge and will be slow to come out. So stay tuned for those…as they will be epic…

    Here are some ( probably dumb ) ideas
    – Designing architecture with fluent interfaces in mind
    – Best DDD book everybody should read (if there is something after Eric Evan’s book )
    – Putting DDD to work in a real work environment
    – The ups and downs of the first successful release
    – What’s the last app you built and actually enjoyed ( cause it only did what it was asked of it – except for Hello World 😛 )
    – Tips for the first day back at work when coming from a nice long ( 2 weeks ) vacation

    Hope I nailed at least one that might become a blog post.
    Thanks for blogging and Happy New Year!

    This one is something I live with every day as a hobbyist, and I would love to see some thoughts on it from someone “in the know”; Agile practices for a one-man shop. Or not even a shop – how about a hobby developer doing projects in his spare time, hoping one day to quit his boring day job and start a small company – what kind of practices will be helpful, and which will just be in the way?

    I would think this is interesting to a lot of people who are in this position. For instance, I see a lot of value in TDD, but pair-programming isn’t such a hot issue while being a singleton. 🙂

    Well, my own idea is about tech enthusiasts’ (group in which I consider myself into) similarity with art vanguardists. You know, we’re always searching for new things.

    I guess most of you may have experienced the problem of having started too much projects, and not wanting to finish, but to use your time in starting new things? Well, I have, and I guess also you, as I, are always wanting to learn something new, to play with new releases, to try different things. But when we face a project, we work on it enthusiastically until we see something new… and then we just want to move on.

    Well, that’s my idea. Happy new year!

    “How to sell agile to clients” – The problem I have is how to sell the agile process to new clients that are unaware of what it is. I try to explain and obviously don’t do a very good job. A customer always wants to know how much a job will cost and when it will be delivered. They seem to be nervous that agile will not deliver the requirements in time, but they seem to have false exceptions that waterfall is bullet proof. Any suggestions along this line would be super cool. Is just telling the truth that human planning is fraught with inaccurate estimations and missed tasks a step too far? How do you do it?

    Talking about software is boring until you talk about the “people” who develop software. Each post you hit on this topic will be an absolute cracker provided its absolutely awesome.

    This is an idea that always works. Although it isn’t an idea by itself, I would rather call it a domain of brilliant ideas.
