You should rotate meetings facilitator

To be honest, I was not a big fan of SCRUM even two years ago. Everything changed after Professional Scrum Master course and exam. I understood, I did not like not SCRUM, but quasi-SCRUM monster created in company… Yeah, it was our first approach and it was definitely not a proper way. Right now I see this from completely different perspective and really like this framework, I even use it in some personal goals and plans. It does not mean, I do not like experiments, especially because official SCRUM guide does not prohibit them. One of ideas is to rotate meetings facilitator.

PhpStan: improve your code quality

Manual code review is a hard task and everyone who tired that, probably will agree – it is because this method requires time, involves even several people and do not provide success, because anyone can just complain and do not agree.

Does it mean we cannot recover deleted files? Fortunately, it is possible, but a bit tricky. Trick post is to explain how to do that.

WSL – Reclaiming Storage Space

I’ve been a big fan of WSL ever since it came out – that to this solution, I can work daily with Windows, in my opinion the best and the most flexible OS, and still have all Linux advantages and a bit isolated work environment. Of course, WSL is not perfect and have some issues. One of them is taking up disk space. During our work, the size of the WSL file will become larger and larger. It will happen even if we will decide to jump into Linux distribution and remove a lot of unnecessary files. Fortunately, there is a quick solution – we can use diskpart includes in Windows to reclaim some space.
