Who am I? ● Employee of a office peripheral vendor NOT IMPORTANT To involve Free OSes world from peripheral ● vendor's point of view ● I love Programming “Languages” ● Prolog and Smalltalk are most lovely langages. ● NOT IMPORTANT And interested in programming languages semantics (type theory, etc.) ● And... ● Weekend kayaker!!

  6. 6. What's a Kayak ● Small human-powered boat ● Use “Paddle,” not “Oar.” ● Oars are attached on a boat to use the principle of leverage (easy to move, but no freedom). ● Paddle is not attached on a boat because of FREE Maneuverability

  9. 9. Anyway, I said, ● “Kayaking is Good training to improve your ’Human’ skill of IT engineer!” ● What do I mean? ● Just a hobby? ● My opinion is: ● Of course, we play kayak as hobby, but, ● Kayaking (especially whitewater river running) has very similar points with software developments ● Mostly HUMAN SKILLs
  10. 10. Example: Upper Kidu-river, MIE prefecture
  11. 11. SCARY? YES, REALLY SCARE. Calm down, calm down, calm down...
  12. 12. Don't scare, LOOK and THINK!
  13. 13. Find your OWN route There is a big rock! It's my route (and succeed!) Big drop and very shallow...
  14. 14. Manage YOUR Risks ● White water paddling is very nice training of RISK MANAGEMENT (not for your mgr.) 1.Find ALL of risks you have 2.Classify which risks are acceptable NOT SO SERIOUS SERIOUS (DEATH?) Can avoid? Everyone (Not a risk) Easy Acceptable (Fun!) Don't try! Difficult Acceptable if you want Don't try! 3.Then, decide which route is best for yourself. – The best routes are different for each people. – Paddling skill, kind of boat, mental (big factor),...
  15. 15. More important thing: ● Teamwork! ● given enough eyeballs, all risks are shallow. – Modified Linus's Law (bugs → risks) ● For good classification of risk, need many heads. ● In trouble, your buddies will rescue each other. – The trust braves you to beat risks! Thinking, Judging, Trust and Success together make very good teamwork, It is exactly same as software developments, isn't it?
  16. 16. Once Again: ● Kayak is very nice hobby for IT engineers! ● Good recreation in nature, of course ● Fun, very fun. ● And, Good training to improve your ’Human’ skill of IT engineer!
