The basic idea of story branching (sometimes referred to as “issue-driven development”) is that you create a development branch for each and every JIRA issue you implement.
Bug fixes, user stories, spikes… they all get their own branch.
Madness, you say!
And I would agree with you if we were still using a centralized version control system like SVN.
But branching in Git is very lightweight and merges don’t lock up the entire repository, making this crazy idea quite practical.
In this webinar you will learn the key differences between Zimbra Collaboration Server and Microsoft Exchange. Discover how next-generation products like Zimbra are dramatically lowering TCO and improving user productivity.
Brist på kritiskt tänkande. Högskolan har blivit en gigantisk sysselsättningsarena för ungdomar, ofta med tveksamma kurser i alltför lätta ämnen. Samtidigt vill många högskolor få universitetsstatus. Kanske borde de göras om till gymnasieskolor i stället, skriver professor Mats Alvesson.
Suppose I could offer you a choice of two technologies for watching TV online. Behind Door Number One sits a free-to-watch service that uses off-the-shelf technology and that buffers just enough of each show to put the live stream on the Internet. Behind Door Number Two lies a subscription service that requires custom-designed hardware and makes dozens of copies of each show. Which sounds easier to build—and to use? More importantly, which is more likely to be legal?
The Blit (originally named the Jerq!) was an early graphical user interface, connected to a UNIX computer. Inspired by the Xerox Alto from the early 1970s, creators Rob Pike and Bart Locanthi wanted to make a graphics machine for use at Bell Labs that would have the usability of the Xerox, but with the processing power of a 1981 computer. Created using a Motorola microprocessor instead of a Bell one, the machine would be retooled for the commercial market (business market, because it was still expensive) as the AT&T; 5620, which came out in 1984 — using a Western Electric WE32000 microprocessor. The Blit had a vertically-oriented display and an early mouse peripheral; this video explains how it worked.
Säljer du bannerutrymme på din sajt? I så fall är det bra att följa de standardformat som Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) nu rekommenderar. Under IABs kartläggning över vilka bannerformat som används på svenska sajter idag hittade de över 500 olika format.
Alla dessa storlekar innebär självklart en väldig massa formatanpassning för de annonsörer som vill synas på flera olika sajter. Därför har IAB nu tagit fram Svensk Displaystandard, där de rekommenderar 14 st annonsformat för sajtägare att erbjuda sina annonsörer.
WePay is a Y Combinator-backed startup originally formed mostly to make it easier for groups to collect money and make payments together. But it’s recently gone beyond just helping out groups, providing an ultra-simple platform for anyone to collect and manage payments online. It’s added support for event registration and ticketing, custom invoicing, donations, and e-commerce. A few weeks ago, it even rolled out a white-label payments API and lowered its prices to court third-party developers and better compete against PayPal and others.
Now the company is making it even easier for websites to collect money, sell goods, or receive donations, by offering up a way to accept payments right on a client’s website. For site owners, adding a WePay Payment Button is as easy as embedding a YouTube video — they merely add a small cut-and-paste piece of code to the site.
Many people who have managed projects with hours have a hard time understanding why story points are better. They have failed to understand some fundamental data that has been published for over 20 years in the industry literature as well as the latest research.
First, let's look at the latest data on project failures. Failure rates are increasing for IT projects during the current disruption of the global financial system. The latest Standish group analysis shows that agile projects have three times the success rate of traditional projects. Jim Johnson now recommends agile practice be used universally on all projects.

There are still plenty of ideas out there, ranging from the extremely ambitious — such as Elon Musk’s desire to fly to the Red Planet in the next two decades – to the completely bizarre – like the MarsOne reality-show/one-way-suicide-mission combo.
Here we take a look at historical Mars plans, both crazy and sane, and the few that really stood a good chance at becoming reality.
Did Germany experience rapid industrial expansion in the 19th century due to an absence of copyright law? A German historian argues that the massive proliferation of books, and thus knowledge, laid the foundation for the country's industrial might.
