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.

Freedom vs. Cost Savings

By Kendra Penrose, June 17, 2009

Another gem from Matt Asay on his blog The Open Road today.

He discusses how for a long time the message behind why companies should adopt open source was to break free from dreaded vendor lock-ins, or as he puts it "Stop feeding your firstborn sons to the beast in Redmond!" Instead, more companies realize that choosing open source (and third party support) also reduces costs and increases IT efficiency. Sounds great, huh?
