Scrumwise - The Scrum tool you've always wanted

Scrumwise - The Scrum tool you've always wanted

From Jira to Trello For the past couple of years I’ve had to work with Jira. Really, it’s mostly been dreading working with Jira. At both projects I’ve had Greenhopper available, and that hasn’t really made things better. My frustrations have had to do with the complexity of setting up the right fields, to creating a new sprint to creating a new project, down to mundane things like problems with ranking. I don’t particularly enjoy spending hours just tidying up my data. I found out about Trello on September 14, 2011, Olle Hallin a colleague at Crisp had spotted it just a day after its release. The development team has one board and four columns: Ready for DevelopmentIn DevelopmentDeployed to StageDone The “Done” column is release specific. Creating the initial board and first sprint’s stories took about one hour. Moving to Trello is great since we can now add stories easily, rearrange and rename columns quickly, but the biggest win for our team is that we now have one source of truth that everybody uses.

Agile software development processes, stories and lessons learnt SEO by Yoast WordPress out of the box is already technically quite a good platform for SEO, this was true when I wrote my original WordPress SEO article in 2008 (and updated every few months) and it's still true today, but that doesn't mean you can't improve it further! This plugin is written from the ground up by Joost de Valk and his team at Yoast to improve your site's SEO on all needed aspects. While this WordPress SEO plugin goes the extra mile to take care of all the technical optimization, more on that below, it first and foremost helps you write better content. WordPress SEO forces you to choose a focus keyword when you're writing your articles, and then makes sure you use that focus keyword everywhere. = Premium Support = The Yoast team does not provide support for the WordPress SEO plugin on the forums.

Flurry launches crash and user acquisition analytics for mobile app developers 1 February '13, 07:01pm Follow Mobile analytics company Flurry has announced the launch of two new features for app developers: Crash Analytics and User Acquisition Analytics. The new services, which will be included in Flurry’s existing Analytics SDK, will be offered for free. Flurry tells us that its User Acquisition Analytics feature is available immediately for all users, but Crash Analytics is only available for Android in beta (you must register for it), with an iOS counterpart launching “later this month.” The company details that Crash Analytics, developed through a partnership with Plausible Labs, was “by far the most requested [feature],” following a survey of 100,000 of its users. Flurry has become known for its mobile app reports, powered by data pulled from its Analytics SDK. Image credit: Thinkstock / John Foxx

Crowdsourcing app will “measure the world” for a week through smartphones If you've ever had trouble explaining the concept of "big data" to someone—or had trouble wrapping your brain around the buzzword yourself—Rick Smolan wants to help. But how do you demonstrate big data? It's the somewhat abstract, powerful analytical processing of massive quantities of human- and machine-generated data. Smolan believes he can help people understand the idea with his new multimedia effort "The Human Face of Big Data," a week-long, mobile-app project which seeks to transform millions of smartphone users into voluntary sensors who will then "measure the world." Smolan is a former National Geographic photojournalist, and his company, Against All Odds Productions, is a driving force behind the project. He may be uniquely qualified for this task due to his long track record of tackling monstrously large topics with large teams. Since then, Smolan has continued tackling weighty topics (for instance the global water crisis).

Quantified Self | Self Knowledge Through Numbers NoSQL – 도대체 어떻게 선택해야 할까? | 우승이의 블로그 오늘 글을 포스팅 하기전에 오래전 얘기를 먼저 해야 할 것 같습니다. 99년도쯤이였나 당시 저는 유닉스에서 개발된 정보 시스템을 MS 윈도우로 전환하면서 이를 웹어플리케이션으로 개발하기 위해서 기술을 검토하던때였습니다. 그래서 당시 COM 이라고 하는 (또는 ActiveX의 서버버전 정도로 생각하셔도 됩니다만 엄밀히 말하면 다르죠.) 기술에 대해서 공부를 하고 이리저리 만져보고 있던 시절입니다. 간단히 말하면 유닉스에서 개발된 C++ 라이브러리를 COM 컴포넌트로 래핑을 해서 서버에 등록해서 MS 웹서버인 ASP에서 사용할 수 있게 만들려고 한 것이죠. 정작 하고 싶은 얘기는 이제부터입니다. 그 이후 자바기반으로 새로이 웹어플리케이션으로 개발했다고 들었습니다. 각설하고 , 최근들어 NoSQL 이라는 것에 대해서 주위에서 많은 얘기들을 하고 있습니다. 앞서 제가 10여년전 얘기를 들먹거린 이유가 여기에 있습니다. 다만 NoSQL 선택을 할 때 고려해야 할 점 몇가지를 정리하고자 합니다. 아 … 오늘은 본론에 들어가기도 전에 정말 말이 많군요. 1. 그전에 NoSQL 에 대해서 간단히 정리하고 넘어갈까요? 한마디로 관계형 데이터 모델을 사용하지 않고 SQL 을 사용하지 않는 그 이외의 모든 데이터 베이스 시스템 또는 데이터 스토어를 일컬어 NoSQL 이라 칭하게 된 것이죠. 그간에는 수십년간 관계형 데이터베이스라는 것이 데이터를 저장하는데 최적이라고 믿고 있었고 기업 시장에서는 ACID 라는 데이터의 무결성이라는 점에 더 무게를 두었고 무엇보다도 SQL 이라고 하는 언어의 편이성 때문인지 나머지 데이터베이스 시스템들은 그간 주목을 못받아 왔다고 생각하시면 될 것 같습니다. 그러다가 최근에 인터넷 시대가 되고 소셜네트워크 서비스등이 등장하면서 관계형데이터 또는 정형데이터가 아닌 데이터, 즉 비정형데이터라는 것을 보다 쉽게 담아서 저장하고 처리할 수 있는 구조를 가진 데이터 베이스들이 관심을 가지게 되었고 이를 통칭해서 NoSQL 이라 부르게 된 것입니다. 2. 3.

Big Data, Unstructured Information Analysis is More Than Sentiment What started many years ago as a driver for a new generation of storage devices, the topic of Big Data is turning mainstream, having made nearly every list of “trends for 2012.” Continued media attention and buzz is making what Big Data actually is more clear. The challenge, is how get value from it. Compared with other trends that fizzled out over time or remained more academic phenomena than anything else (i.e. the Semantic Web), I believe that Big Data is for real: it really can give companies a tremendous opportunity to leverage their data for better business insight through analytics. The catch is knowing how to use it. More than structured information stored neatly in rows and columns, Big Data actually comes in complex, unstructured formats, everything from web sites, social media and email, to videos, presentations, etc. On this point, the learning curve for most organizations is quite steep.
