It's been nearly 10 years since Apple launched the first touch screen smartphone in 2007. Did you know however, that the first touch screen was actually invented in 1965? That's nearly fifty years ago to the day! Yet I wonder, would anybody have believed it, if told that by the year 2015, there'd be more touch-screen enabled smart phones and tablets, than human beings on the planet?

Retrospective sessions help us learn from our experiences and improve the way we work both independently and as a team. Getting together and discussing “how things went” is one approach but for the session to be truly valuable we need to add a little structure to the conversation.
We had a party in our werehouse last week and people somehow was showing their stuff and sharing ideas. “Modulate a thousand times more”, one of the code poetry series from Peter Wildman intrigues me the most, maybe it’s somewhat relevant to me as a front-end developer.
