What works and what doesn't work in software development? For the first 10 years or so of my career, we followed a strict waterfall development model. Then in 2008 we started switching to an agile development model. In 2011 we added DevOps principles and practices. Our product team has also become increasingly global. This blog is about our successes and failures, and what we've learned along the way.

Food Network's Disturbing Breach of Privacy

I found a recipe on Food Network that I wanted to try later, so I clicked on the "Save Recipe" button. It asked me to log in or create an account, so I decided to try the "Log In With Facebook" option. Here are the permissions it asked for: "Food Network will receive the following info: your public profile, friend list, email address, custom friends lists, birthday, current city, photos and personal description and your friends' religious and political views." No, no, no, no, and no! Food Network, you should be ashamed of yourself.
