How to Rescue Failing Software Projects: Practical Proven Methods That Work

IMG_1712 My book is finally available as an eBook, on Amazon Kindle and on Amazon. I wrote this book to share my experience in how to rescue failing software projects. When I was going through such a situation, I had no one to turn to. My hope is that the information in this book will be useful to those in similar situations. Although the information in the book pertains to software projects, I have come to realize that the techniques can be used in many other situations. I have personally used these techniques in business and technical projects.

What is Wing Chun Kung Fu?

Wing Chun Kung Fu is a fantastic, thinking, scientific martial arts. As the legend goes, it was developed by a nun in China after the destruction of the ShaoLin Temple. It is a soft martial art that uses the opponents strengths to your advantage. Hence, a Wing Chun exponent will be able to "handle" larger, stronger opponents. It was also Bruce Lee's first and only martial art he was formally trained on.

This is the reason I had searched for a teacher for a long time. I'm currently training and still have so much to learn and experience. Its a simple art, but requires a high degree of skill and sensitivity development.

Words cannot express the art. Have a look at this video. THe Wing Chun practitioners are doing "sticking hands", which is a practice where arms are in contact and sensitiveity is developed. The movements (attack and defence) are not choreographed. It is free flowing. This is very close to a real fight. It helps to hone your skills and build confidence. Don't be fooled by the slow smooth action. Just imagine if these two are executing their moves in double quick time. It would result in severe injuries.

Experienced Wing Chun practioners are able to do "Sticking hands" blindfolded.
