Viadesk SmartQ: Visual Project-Management That Conforms to You When it comes to project management, most web apps offer the same basic features: a group of to-do lists, some kind of messaging board, a few gigs of file storage, shared document-editing, a calendar of some sort, and if you’re lucky, a set of reports. But what most don’t offer is the ability to develop a project-management workflow that conforms to the way your team already works, and without this customization, you lose precious time trying to get everybody up to speed on the new way of doing things. In my experience, that ramp-up time usually results in project members abandoning the app and reverting to project management by email. Enter SmartQ. Overview SmartQ provides a visual representation of your workflow SmartQ is a project-management app based on the Kanban production system developed in the 1940s by Toyota. Getting Started with SmartQ This is where the fun comes in. What makes SmartQ different from other project-management apps is the “Workflow Designer” attached to each project.

Introducing rollout: Condionally roll out features with redis | James on Software Aug 01, 2010 When we work on new features, we like to push them to production regularly. We've found that long-lived branches tend to introduce more defects than short-lived ones. When we're ready to alpha the feature, we'll roll it out to staff. If we do find a problem, we need to be able to disable the feature in real-time. We do all of this using a tool we put together called rollout. How it works gem install rollout I like to assign an instance of Rollout to a global variable. $redis =$rollout =$redis) I can check whether a user has access to a feature like this: $ Let's say I want to roll out a chat feature. if $ The simplest way to start rolling out our chat feature is by giving access to a single user: $rollout.activate_user(:chat, User.find_by_nickname("jamesgolick")) $ When alpha testing, it's convenient to be able to provide access to whole groups of users (staff, for example) at once. To provide access to a group:
