What is “simplicity”?

We can define simple - as something that is easily understood or done; presenting no difficulty. Simplicity is subjective, things that appear simple for one person will not be perceived identically by another

Generally, we form our personal opinion regarding any process being simple or complex, in three quick stages:

  • How easy you understand what you need to do.
  • The time/effort needed to reach your final goal.
  • If it is enjoyable or not.

The office identity crisis

Most people have a love-hate relationship with the office. In a world where remote work has proven to be effective and is preferred by the majority of employees, the office is having an identity crisis. Work is no longer a place you go to every day. 

As organisations look to rebuild office life, they have an opportunity to rethink the office and the nature of work itself.

The many meanings of hybrid

The term “hybrid work” has come to mean more flexibility around working both remotely and in the office. But perhaps we could be applying the same term to the speed of work as well.

What if hybrid means:

  • Some days you work quickly and sprint, and other days you take things slow and focus more on the process and deep work.
  • Some months you happen to be in a busy period and you orient your life towards working from sun up to sleep, and then other months when work abates through the normal course of business, you take extended time off.

Gaining your first 1,000 followers on Instagram can sound like an immense hurdle when you only have 5, and 1 of them is your mom. There’s also the problem of not knowing where to begin. If you’re talented enough to go viral in one go, congrats, but this isn’t for you.

Being asked to code something deceitful

Developers are often one of the last lines of defense against potentially dangerous and unethical practices. The more software continues to take over every aspect of our lives, the more important it will be for us to take a stand and ensure that our ethics are ever-present in our code.

We’re approaching a time where software will drive the vehicle that transports your family to soccer practice. There are already AI programs that help doctors diagnose disease. It’s not hard to imagine them recommending prescription drugs soon, too.
