I have a principle now: no installing languages or tools or any project-specific stuff on my laptop. Only Docker. Every project can happily have its own version of Ruby or Python and their dependency managers. When my laptop gets lost again, I won’t spend (as many) weeks being surprised by what I need to install again.
Here is my tiniest intro to using Docker for this purpose. Not for production, but for my purposes. And for making projects work-on-able by other people on every operating system.
again: Every action has two results: a set of side effects on the world, and the next version of ourselves.
Sometimes in the creation of an artifact, the artifact itself is less important than the process of creating it. Wardley Maps are like that too – it’s about the thought that goes into creating them, and the conversations they enable. (video by @catswetel)
Most diagrams, especially on the white board, communicate very well to the people who participated in their creation, and very little to anyone else.
It’s the co-creation that matters. The participation in creating the artifact. The output is the next version of our team, with this common ground we established in the process.
