Allen Holub talks with Dave Rael about eclectic interests, microservices, agility, fiction, and value

Allen Holub (http://holub.com, @allenholub, allen@holub.com) is an internationally recognized software architect and Agile-transformation consultant. He speaks internationally about these topics and agile-friendly implementation technology (like microservices) and architecture. He provides in-house training and consulting in those areas. He excels at building highly functional Lean/Agile organizations and designing and building robust, highly scalable software suitable for agile environments. He's worn every hat from CTO to grunt programmer, and is an expert-level programmer in many languages and platforms. Allen is widely published. His works include 10 books, hundreds of articles in publications (ranging from Dr. Dobb’s Journal to IBM DeveloperWorks), and video classes for agilitry.com (Agility with Allen) and Pluralsight (Swift in Depth, Picturing Architecture, Object-Oriented Design) and O’Reilly (Design Patterns in the Real World).

Allen's top 3 tips for delivering more value:
  1. Think about value - focus on making lives better, not process
  2. Deliver as fast as you can and ask people if it's useful
  3. Don't worry about sunk costs - move forward with the best way of providing utility
