The promise behind agile approaches (and methodologies) is to provide greater value within shorter time frames. In other words, to increase ROI by delivering the most important things (those that bring the most value) first (and, therefore, with minimal investment).The value in any development is only delivered “in production”, when it is in the hands of actual users. Even when the developers have finished coding, packaging, and delivering a release, the value remains latent.
As developers we all know that reviewing code is a beneficial and necessary process. Remember: Code review can help make your entire team more efficient, your software more maintainable (and maintenance is 70% of the cost of software), and your job more rewarding! At least in theory! In practice, nobody really wants to review code—a task perceived as tedious and time consuming.
As the leader of software development teams, you are right to focus on the heart of the project: the source code. After all, this is where the final deliveries are. On the tooling side, a version control system like Git is the usual choice. Yes, Git helps developers work together and collaborate asynchronously. Some development teams stop here. But they can do more to facilitate more effective software team collaboration and produce better quality software.
DevOps is a good way to make your software launches faster, more secure, and successful. Of course, there is no secret tool that will make you and your team DevOps, or even Agile. But there are tools that can dramatically help teams accelerate quality deliveries. In this article, we help you better understand which tools can do what for whom.
Github just got acquired by Microsoft. Microsoft engagement around Git to make it even more enterprise ready is a good sign for the future of the service and recent engagement around open source at large shouldn’t worry current users.
June, 6th, 2018. Enalean, the software provider of Tuleap, the 1st Open Source Agile Development tool, is opening today its Tuleap.net platform to the world, in particular to Open Source public projects.
Tuleap.net is not like any other platforms for software development. That's the fully Open Source platform, providing so many Agile development features dedicated to host OS and Libre projects.
One of 2018 challenge for Tuleap is the migration to PHP7. I know, we are late. But it's not that easy to migrate 800k LoC with some them written when PHP3 was still a thing.
The Tuleap StackStorm pack allows you to link a Tuleap instance to many external tools, to share data and automate actions between each other.
This post reminds you what is StackStorm and what's a pack. Then, I'll share how we built the Tuleap StackStorm pack and how you can use it, for instance, moving issues from Github to Tuleap.
TQL stands for Tuleap Query Language. It is the most powerful way to search for artifacts in Tuleap. Want more? TQL is for all: developers, agile people, project leaders, businesses. This article intends to give you examples and tricks to help you faster create valuable reports.
Software automation can help make your IT staff’s life easier
Tuleap Trackers let you track virtually any kind of item, or “artifact.” However, sometimes you need to aggregate data from different sources and tools. The powerful Tuleap REST API gives you the interoperability you need to do this.
