For the ones that have many databases to keep under source control, it can be really useful to speed up the link-to-source-control process. The only way we have now is to use the GUI provided by Red Gate SQL Source Control. Actually, there’s a github project called SOCAutoLinkDatabases by Matthew Flat, a Red Gate engineer, but, unfortunately it works only on a shared database model (centralised) in TFS. Let’s see how to manage the link using Working Folder (which is also good for many SCM) and dedicated database model (distributed).
In the 6th episode’s post we’ve spoken about the concept of “sprint failure” and “start again with a new spirit”. Now I can say that we have reached our goals and the application is up and running, ready to be shown during the exam sessions.
We are proud to introduce online Students’ Yearbook!
It’s time to review the work done.
The web application the students are working on is reaching its end, speaking about development. It’s not so good to see, we know it, but starting from this sprint, we will apply some graphical stuff and we’ll be ready to present the tool to the “board”.
The sprint 2 was completed successfully. This is a great news and when I’ve heard that sentence, I was very happy with my “class”. Yes, we miss something, but the software package is working, and not just in one client.
Agile@School project is growing and finally we’re reaching the most important part of the iteration.
In this third episode we played the planning poker game on a round table (which appears like a poker session at a first sight actually 🙂 ) and the students decided to skip the coffee break! You know how is really difficult for them to be focused.
In this post, we’ve introduced the Agile@School project, a new way for managing school projects.
Last Saturday, I’ve shown the Agile@School project at ITSOS Fornovo Taro, the school in which I’ve studied for five years, just before starting to work as a junior developer.
ITSOS has been (and this is true right now) at the forefront of computer technology and now, thanks to the new “technology course”, the project becomes really interesting. During the year, indeed, the teachers have spoken about development methodologies, both for Agile and Waterfall approaches. This sounds great, especially in Italy.
One of the most common issue you can find when source controlling the database is about the security. How to manage the users and the related permissions?
If you use to apply permission to users and to assign users to the database, this can be a problem, especially when you are in the deployment phase (or else when getting latest versions from the source control). Let’s see these two scenarios:
For all those who have been dealing with Visual Studio Online tags, you know, creating a tag it’s simple. Just write the string in the related area:
