Business Tech: UX and UI Part III - Compliance


A number of years ago, I was chatting with a good friend who is also a MultiValue programmer/analyst. He made a passing reference to his ex-wife as She Who Must be Obeyed. I asked him if he knew where that phrase came from and he mentioned Rumpole of the Bailey, a television program. I told him that it was originally from the H. Rider Haggard novel She .

I mention this for two reasons. First, this article is about Compliance and the She Who Must be Obeyed in compliance is the law. Second, like my friend, you may find yourself with incomplete information that looks complete.

The Tire Story

I have another friend who nearly turned purple with remembered rage as he told me the story of why he isn't in the tire business. It seemed that he and his partners had bought land and started to set up a factory only to find that nearly everything they were about to do was illegal. They hadn't done an environmental impact statement before selecting their site. They hadn't determined which buildings were downwind of the smoke that making tires would produce. They were in an area which was zoned for industry but not that particular industry. There were more issues, but you get the idea.

As part of the planning for the MultiValue Bootcamp track I was looking for how oth-er conferences have run that sort of training in their own industries. In doing so, I ran across the concept of a Coding Retreat. A Coding Retreat is very similar to the Code Katas that I've talked about in past FTIs, but it sounds like a lot more fun.
