I’m still working on organizing my ideas from ESSAP.
The fourth day in Varese we had a presentation about “Software Creativity”… I remember that I was very curious about it. In the end I really enjoyed Fabrizio Milo’s presentation: very funny and entertaining!!

So here is another mind map about Creativity…

ESSAP 2007: Agile Retrospectives

Filed under: Stuff... pfu... — Ilias Bartolini at 9:03 pm on Tuesday, July 24, 2007

I attended at ESSAP (European Summer School on Agile Programming) a few weeks ago in Varese.
This is my mind map of one of the most interesting courses: “Retrospective Techniques” taken by Luca Grulla

…I hope to have enough time to publish some other maps soon
I recently started to use FreeMind: another great Open Source tool!

Ci sono momenti in cui un ingegnere informatico prova delle soddifazioni…

Come il giorno in cui prima di cambiare portatile ti accingi a fare backup …ed è passato così tanto dall’ultimo giorno in cui hai usato microscottex windowz che ti eri persino completamente dimenticato di averne una partizione!!! :D

AV screen shoot Oppure come oggi che ho scoperto che qualcuno ha deciso di realizzare un remake del mitico “Arcade Volley“… “av” per gli amici. Il gioco più stupido di fronte al quale un povero bambino poteva passare innumerevoli ore!!
http://gav.sourceforge.net/

The old game features CGA graphics in 4 colors (cyan, magenta, black white), at a resolution of 320×200 pixels. It ran very smoothly even on 8086 machines, and had no requirements whatsoever in terms of memory — the executable itself was only about 40kb. The game modes where from 0 to 2 players, and a joystick could (in theory) be used. In theory, because the game did not seem up to support joysticks on newer machines.

It is reported (found on some obscure websites) that the game was written by a company called ‘Microforum’, and was released in 1987

…qualcuno di voi conosce un gioco più stupido di questo?!
