  • [GO] Grace Murray Hopper
    After four decades of pioneering work, Admiral Hopper felt her greatest contribution had been "all the young people I've trained." She was an inspirational professor and a much sought-after speaker, in some years she addressed more than 200 audiences. In her speeches Admiral Hopper often used analogies and examples that have become legendary. Once she presented a piece of wire about a foot long, and explained that it represented a nanosecond, since it was the maximum distance electricity could travel in wire in one-billionth of a second. She often contrasted this nanosecond with a microsecond - a coil of wire nearly a thousand feet long - as she encouraged programmers not to waste even a microsecond.

  • [GO] - Extreme agility
    "Release management? We don't have "releases" in the traditional sense. When something is ready, it gets deployed. We might try to deploy a few things at once, but we don't have some number with a deadline that says "on this date we're releasing this version with features X, Y and Z." I guess that's "continuous deployment," if you want to label it."
