How we manage our development process at Qandidate.com
August 22, 2014 @ 10:34:46

The Qandidate blog has a new post today that "pulls back the curtain" as to how they manage their development process and get their work done.

At Qandidate.com we tried a lot of different project management tools and techniques. After two years of experimenting I want to share our current process, seen from my role as product owner (PO). One reason for sharing this, is to help you improve your process, but the most important reason is to start a discussion with you based on your experience, to improve our process even more. Our main rule at Qandidate.com is to embrace change. Always be open for changes that may or may not improve your process. If a change improves the process it's a win. If you didn't try it you will never know!

They walk through the three main points over the overall flow of work there:

  • The process itself including two week sprints containing (unestimated) stories
  • A demo and stakeholders meeting showing the work they've done during the sprint and get feedback from the stakeholders
  • The stories and how they're created and when/how new ones are added (their "piano meetings").

They also include testing, both frontend and backend, and focus on small chunks of functionality instead of quick and dirty hacks. While their process won't work for every group (and is more of a "scrum-but..." setup) it is interesting to see how another group does their work.

Atlanta PHP December 2012 Meeting - Multi-Tasking in PHP
November 13, 2012 @ 11:15:04

The Atlanta PHP User Group has announced their December 2012 meeting happening on the 6th. The presenter this time will be Jonathan Hill covering multi-tasking in PHP.

When it comes to multi-tasking and interacting with the operating system, PHP is no lightweight. In this talk we'll explore PHP's little-known POSIX, Process Control, and Semaphore extensions and show you how to introduce a parallel dimension to your applications.

A "mini-talk" will also be given by Jason Bouffard about screen scraping with Goutte. The meeting is on December 6th at 7pm at the Strongbox West offices in Atlanta.

Atlanta PHP October Meeting - Jacob Terry on Tracking in Applications
September 21, 2012 @ 10:15:18

The Atlanta PHP User Group has announced their October meetup with a presentation from Jacob Terry about tracking in your application.

Even if your users don't want a full "audit trail" of activity, even if you aren't interested in doing a newsfeed, recording user actions in your application can be enormously useful. We'll look at a real-world implementation of recording that data, using a CodeIgniter-based application, and discuss three less-obvious use cases. Those are: Undo, Sync & Emails.

The meeting is going to be on Thursday, October 4th from 7-9pm at the Strongbox West coworking facility. If you're in the Atlanta area, you should definitely check this group out!
