Managing virtually, or virtually managing? Personal connection at a distance
Projectmanagement.com
We live in a virtual world. What's more, to judge by the typical behavior of its average inhabitant, we like living in a virtual world. Social events are mediated through our smartphones, as evidenced by Instagram photos and Facebook videos. We tweet, "like," ping and post our way through our intended-to-be-productive days and our periods of theoretical downtime.

The crucial career choices we make every day
By Mike Wokasch
Many of us are in a work routine where we get up, go to work, do our job and go home. We do this without realizing that every day we make two choices that affect our job performance, career opportunities and compensation. These choices also have deeper rooted personal and job satisfaction implications that will become obvious from this discussion. If this is you, watch out. This level of comfort and confidence breeds complacency, can undermine your career and leave you vulnerable. You see, it's easier to rationalize complacency from a position of performance excellence.

Which is not only a shame, it's very shortsighted. Why? Because leading with love is a winning leadership and employee engagement strategy on many levels.

TheServerSide.com
There is no denying the trend in the enterprise Java community's towards a growing enthusiasm for continuous development tools and techniques. It's a bit of a conundrum when you consider that this approach to software development and deployment isn't really something new. Many organizations have achieved continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment in the past using tools like Maven and CruiseControl. But today's more finely-tuned tools are really upping the game.
