Cal Evans' Blog:
Six ways to be a better client for your developer - Point 4
January 21, 2011 @ 14:31:52

Cal Evans is back with the latest part of his "Be a Better Client" series of posts focusing on how the person asking for the work to be done can interface with those doing the work more effectively. This time his recommendation is about deadlines.

Regardless of whether it is a large or small project, don't set one final deadline, set regular milestones. If it' a week-long project, figure out what will be delivered each day and set daily milestones. Larger projects will have them spaced out more but either way, make sure that you have them at regular intervals and that all major deliverables are assigned a milestone.

He points out that a single deadline only does one thing - lets the project know when to be done. It shows absolutely no progress along the way. Milestones are much more effective at this.

Make sure your developer is reporting back to you on a regular basis. At the very least you should have a status meeting at each milestone to make sure it was hit. For larger projects you will need meetings between the milestones to make sure the project stays on track.

NETTUTS.com:
10 Biggest Milestones in Web Development
November 25, 2008 @ 11:15:25

NETTUTS.com has posted their top ten list of some of the largest milestones in web development - one of which is the release of PHP.

Some believe the progression of the great World Wide Web to be a travesty, others a godsend. Regardless, the Internet has evolved over the past few decades, and is in many ways better for the web developer. New technologies have come about that have made web development much easier to get started in, and ultimately more fun.

Here's a few from their list:

  • Linus Torvalds Creates the Linux Kernel
  • The Open Source Movement Officially Starts
  • PayPal is Founded
  • Firefox is Released
  • and, of course, PHP is Released by Rasmus Lerdorf

Max Horvath's Blog:
Eclipse PDT 2.0 release postponed
August 26, 2008 @ 11:17:29

For the Eclipse PHP developers out there anxiously awaiting the next major release of the extension, you'll have to wait just a bit longer. Max Horvath mentions a few of the reasons why:

As expected by many, Eclipse PDT's next major release has been postponed. While two milestones couldn't be released, it became clearer and clearer that the release date of September 15th 2008 couldn't be met.

The new deadline has been set though - December 29th, 2008. New improvements in this release will include a type hierarchy view, new PHP explorer functionality, code templates and a code assist for dynamic variables. There was also a large change to the API that set things back a bit.
