Getting Started With Issue Tracking - part 2

By , July 9, 2009

Getting started with issue tracking is much more than deciding on a software application or hosted service. It requires taking stock of team and client culture to arrive at a smooth and productive workflow. In the first part of this 2-part post, we talked about starting with the basics of what your choice of issue tracking system offers and growing from there, as well as defining terms for describing issues consistently across the whole team. In this post, we’ll look at more high-level aspects of implementing issue tracking in your team’s practices.

Getting Started with Issue Tracking - part 1

By , July 8, 2009

Got issues to manage? Most software teams do. They’re to-do lists that get angry when they don’t get done, and they can make teamwork flow through the day or end up in an unmanaged state. If your email inbox is the only tool you’re using to track issues, you’re more likely treading water than swimming. And it’s just that feeling that brings many development teams to an issue tracking system to get a handle on bugs and feature requests. With that in mind, we have a 2-part post of guidelines for getting started with issue tracking.

Keep Your Team on Task with Workspace

By , July 2, 2009

More developers means faster development, right? Wrong. When you add a new developer, it feels like you add developer2 connections. And more connections equal new ways to waste time and lose vital information.

Simplify your team's communication with Workspace.

Workspace has all the tools your team needs to stay connected, focused and on task, whether they're sitting right beside you or coding in the Caribbean.

Getting Started with Project Wikis

By Jeff Hobbs, June 1, 2009

One of the best tools for teamwork to come out of web 2.0 has been the venerable wiki. Few things speak more to staying in the flow of one’s work than just clicking Edit This Page where you see something that needs to be written or re-written (that's why we include wikis in Workspace). While a wiki can let project documentation grow organically as a project unfolds, it is like any tool and needs to be used the right way to get the most out of it.

Unboxing Workspace

By , May 22, 2009

What’s in the box? With any new thing, unboxing is the moment that anticipation meets realization. It’s a moment so loved that hundreds of people actually photo-document the experience and share it on Flickr.

Where's Git!?

By Troy Topnik, May 20, 2009

We've been getting a lot of people asking when we're going to support
Git in Workspace. It's a fair question,
but the best answer I can give at the moment is "As soon as we possibly
can." Workspace is based on Trac, and
getting Git to integrate well with Trac and all of the plug-ins available on
Workspace is quite a challenge.
