Meetings. It’s a big investment which every company makes. Do the companies know their ROI? Or how to measure?
How about a plugin
- Records # of attendees in a meeting which tells the “cost” of the meeting
- Gathers ratings and feedback (attendees can say if they were needed, if the agenda was clear etc)
- Leaderboards it – and forces the meeting organizer to ensure that their meeting rating is above a threshold
Anyone working on it?
Although for living I do Product management wudoo magic, but end up writing a lot of code.
As a developer and user of these cloud platforms, here’s my wishlist. Hope someone solves it. (or I might have to rollup my sleeve and do it 🙂 )
TL;DR: Even if infra availability and management has become easy, it’s still a lot of learning and work. It ends up taking my focus away from code.
- None of the public cloud providers give a Dev, Test, Live environments. While everyone should know that a developer needs “atleast” one non-prod environment.
- Why don’t you ask: “Hey, does this app require an additional non-live environment”? (look at Pantheon.io, Stripe, Pusher.com – to name a new – they totally get the value of giving additional non-prod environment(s))
- Why ask us to write so many YAML files? Programming languages have been abstracting the underlying machine level instructions, stacks like containers/ k8s have been abstracting the nitty – gritties of packaging and operations etc, so why not abstract how these abstractions work?
- Just ask few questions:
- Which cloud?
- Looks like you are deploying Rails – do you care if your app goes to appengine or k8s?
- If yes, ask which one – and generate appropriate app.yaml or docker files. If no, just do that stuff in background.
- Do you need HA for your db? (another way to ask could be : Is this for Prod because I can give you HA for that)
- Again, update appropriate config files in the code or wherever needed
- Looks like you are deploying a container – Is this a background service or does it serve a web request?
- Based on the response: Create appropriate deployment/ service yaml files
- Yeah, if it’s a web container, you can ask more questions – ports etc.
- If the YAML/ config needs to be upgraded in future, then this service should help upgrade.
- Just ask few questions:
Hope someone builds infrastructure management from the viewpoint of a developer.
Look around – we are building chatbots for sales, support, e-commerce and so many other domains – why can’t there be a bot for a developer or ops person?
When you apply for a job, you get “Thanks for applying”. When you get rejected, you get “Sorry, we are not going ahead with your application”
Could there be a service which can keep track of these applications, rejections and send appropriate recommendations?
