Agile Governance: Oil and Water?

leave a comment »

Agile governance is about as controversial a topic as there is these days in software methodology circles. Here’s a post that I did for AccuRev (my last before exiting the company) that summarizes my take on best practices in this area. Enjoy!

Developing in streams, releasing from streams

leave a comment »

Here’s a link to yet another post I did for AccuRev. It’s a critique of some so-called best practices around branching. Eventually every developer will realize that branches are old and dead, so here’s my small contribution to that end.

Whither branches?

leave a comment »

Here’s a link to a post I wrote on blog.accurev.com that addresses some of the problems that development teams have with branches, and why I think AccuRev streams are a superior method of managing code configurations.

Why branch when you can stream?

leave a comment »

This is a little phrase that I’ve coined that sums up why I think the namesake product of the company I work for (AccuRev) is the Next Big Thing in software development tools and SCM. Here’s a post about how the development and release process can be simplified by using AccuRev streams instead of traditional branches.

Build Management with AccuRev and Maven

with one comment

This is a cross post of a blog I did for the company I work for, AccuRev, Inc. In it I describe how to use the recently released m2eclipse Maven integration with the AccuRev software configuration management (SCM) product. Maven is a very cool build and project management tool, and the combination of working with Maven via m2eclipse and Accuev via the AccuBridge for Eclipse plugin is pretty powerful.

Agile Requirements Traceability with AccuRev and Rally

leave a comment »

Here is a link to a blog post I wrote today on my employer’s website. It details the integration that I worked on between AccuRev and Rally – the first being the leading process-centric SCM system (and the company I work for), the second being an agile project management service. The integration was done in Ruby and Perl, and provides basic requirements traceability between issues stored in Rally and code changes performed in AccuRev.

Getting your software tools ready for agile

leave a comment »

Just to kick-start this site, here is a link to a post I did for the company I work for, AccuRev, Inc. It is a summary of a webinar that I participated in recently as a panelist about proper tooling for Agile Software Development. The webinar covered how to evaluate your development toolset, particularly SCM (software configuration management), to get ready for agile. (I’m the Technical Marketing Manager at AccuRev. Opinions expressed herein are my own, etc.)
