Company Standards (Was Re:Voting the entire team off the island)
- Having seen organizations with a hodge podge of logging frameworks, I
don't care to go there again.
Seriously, logging has got to be one of the most overdone, and
under-performing areas of middleware. The Java community alone has at
least 3 different ways of doing logging. Why???????
As a business user (PO), does it really buy me anything if we use
multiple frameworks? What does it cost me if we use only one?
Isn't there something more important to focus on that logging frameworks?

done to reach that goal? Is this reflected in some kind of burn chart
that the team members believe in?
I'm beginning to doubt this. We have something like this, but I wonder whether the value of the milestones is adequately explained, which could certainly be an issue for the new member. If not, it could explain a thing or two.
I've been reading Jean Tabaka's book; I forgot who recommended it to me, but here's a heart-felt thank you to whoever did. I've found "a thing or two" that I should have handled very, very differently. So my apologies to this group, after the apologies already rendered to my team. We're not at the performing stage yet, but in a lot better shape than we were.
