Notes From the Field

Welcome to my notes! I regularly publish notes to better understand what I’ve learned and to explore new ideas. I would love to hear from you—leave a comment or reach out on twitter @alexkehayias.

What’s on my mind lately?

  • Remote Work Permanence

    It’s becoming clear that remote work isn’t going anywhere. A large portion of the workforce continues to work from home.

  • Product Debt

    Product debt is when promises made about functionality exceed what the product can actually do.

  • Puffery Doctrine

    It’s fairly common for companies to make sweeping claims in the course of day-to-day business.

  • One of One Software

    I would guess that a significant amount of software is written for one person and we should celebrate it more.

  • Format Code Like Prose

    Writing code is also writing for other people. We use many conventions in written communication to help with readability.

  • The Taste Gap

    What gets you into a creative field is having really good taste.
