איך להגדיר ימי חופש של סבב פיתוח – יום שישי במקום ראשון

Sunday, March 3, 2013

אחד השינויים ב – TFS 11 מאפשר לנו להגדיר קבוצות פיתוח והגדרה של סבבי פיתוח עם תאריך התחלה וסיום (Sprint, Iteration וכו). כאשר מתחילים לתכנן סבב פיתוח נראה חישוב של סה”כ ימי העבודה בסבב הנוכחי, אך סה”כ הימים לא יסתדר לכם כי הוא מחשב שיום ראשון אינו יום עבודה. זאת שאלה שאני מקבל מהרבה לקוחות – איך אני משנה את תצוגת ה – Backlog שתתאים לימי המנוחה בארץ (שישי ושבת ולא שבת וראשון). לדוגמא – אם הגדרנו סבב פיתוח מה – 3 לפברואר עד ה – 14 לפברואר – מדובר על 12 ימים סה”כ ו-10 ימי פיתוח אבל אנחנו נראה סה”כ 9 ימי...

As you know WinRT exposing API’s for three developer languages: C#, C++ and JavaScript, this means that from each language you’ll be able to perform WinRT calls. The idea is based on Windows Metadata File (winmd) that expose those APIs that can be consumed across a variety of technologies and languages. Download Demo Project So why not using those calls from a desktop application? for example one of the great...

The Git Hole

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Tweet I consider myself a calm person with plenty of tolerance, I believe in productive discussion and love it – Part of my job as a consultant is to talk with Teams and explain them why you should choose a specific product over another, in 99.9% of those meetings there is one guy that don’t like the change (No One Like Changes) and you need in a calm way to explain and show him the benefits of the new tool – Forcing someone to do something is never a good thing. But sometimes there is no wining side in a discussion,...

אז מה חדש ב–TFS 11

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Tweet מהרגע שחזרתי מכנס Build לקוחות שואלים אותי מה מחכה להם בגרסא החדשה של Visual Studio 11 ו – TFS 11? קצת היסטוריה – בעבר חברות רכשו מספר רב של כלים עבור כל תפקיד ייעודי בחברה, לאנשי פיתוח – Visual Studio, לאנשי בדיקות Quality Center ועוד כלים לאוטומציה, מנהלים עבדו עם Excel או MS Project ועוד ועוד כלים, הבעיה שלא היתה אינטגרציה ושיתופיות מלאה בין הכלים, מה שגרם לקשיים לא קטנים בתקשורת ובמעקב אחרי התהליך. ב – 2005 מיקרוסופט הוציאה לאוויר העולם את Team...
