A friend of mine recently send me an article titled, RIP: The Iteration 19?? – 2010. It is an interesting read, but I warn you … you may start asking questions about Iterations. For myself, I have spent several months thinking a lot about the iterative cycle of development, how to improve the performance of a development team, and what “better performance” ......

I am a bit behind the times on this feature of SQL Management Studio, but I never thought of it before now. I'm not sure why it just came to mind today, but I like what I found. SQL Management Studio can use colors to indicate the connection. See a really good post about this here ......

I have a web service using Microsoft Unity to hook the pieces together. It all works fine on my PC but when I put it on the web server, I receive this error message: System.ServiceModel.FaultEx... The value of the property 'type' cannot be parsed. The error is: Method 'GetClaimsForUser' in type 'WebService.Implementation.... ......

For the past several days I have been working on trying to build a WCF service which returns a list of assertions for a member. Because this information will be handed off to a vendor, I have to meet their requirements for how the SAML will look and be encoded. I am having all sorts of issues getting this to work! I know WCF and WIF together should ......

Does anyone know of a module for DotNetNuke which allows me to interact with a KeePass data file? I use KeePass a lot and have access to my different KeePass files on my desktop, my mobile phone, etc. Now I want to create a KeePass file which has things my development team needs access to. I would like to store the KeePass file in a location the web ......

Ever since installing Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 I have been having problems with setting my desktop wallpaper / background image. I like to hide the desktop icons as I never use them. While the icons are hidden I can make all of the necessary updates to change the wallpaper but the image will not change. However, if I go through a full reboot of ......

I saw this on Dr. Dobb’s Code Talk today and laughed. Thought the geeks out there might like it too. A programmer started to cuss Because getting to sleep was a fuss As he lay there in bed Looping 'round in his head was: while( !asleep() ) sheep++; ......

I am not the first to post on this, but just in case you have not heard, take a look at http://www.abetterteam.org/. This is a short on-line survey which will plot how you perceive your Agile team is doing. This is a good tool to get the conversations going and see where the differences are in your team’s perceptions of itself. We recently used the ......

Yes … there is a connection between the two! You just have to love an article which starts with a Star Wars reference. In Unlearn What You Have Learned, Nimesh Soni does a good job of listing several habits which we must overcome in order to succeed with Scrum. I found this article to be interesting as I looked at my work team and compared us to this ......

For about eight months I have been kicking my foot in the dirt trying to figure out if I really wanted to switch my primary browser. I have been using Maxthon for about three years and love many of the features in this browser. However, since Maxthon is built on top of the Microsoft Internet Explorer kernel, Maxthon has the same performance problems ......

Interesting post by Alan Shalloway titled Is Scrum Failing Us? I liked the article and thought you might like it too.



My work team is trying to get our minds around Visual Studio Team Systems and we really want to see how it works with our implementation of Scrum. We have seen various add-ins which enable VSTS to do Agile/Scrum, but I am curious if anyone else has experience with VSTS and Scrum. Which implementation did you decide on? And why? How do you configure ......

About four years ago I got my first glimpse of BizTalk. When I first saw it, I could see lots of possibilities and real potential if this tool was implemented and used properly. Roughly three years ago I began working in an environment which had a BizTalk solution built. Now, this solution relies heavily on several web sites which use HTTP post methods ......

Yesterday I found a very interesting post over at Agile & Business. However, I did not get a chance to look at it until this morning. If you have not read it, take a look at, "What's a ScrumMaster Worth?" ......

I was just told about the death of Gary Gygax. I think the gaming world has lost a true gem, and someone who was able to bring make-believe and fantasy into a tangible, real form for millions. Image from IGN.com. Used without permission, but I hope they understand ......
