Product Backlog Refinement - sometimes referred to as Backlog Grooming - is an on-going task with an aim of keeping the Backlog, or master list, in an orderly and clean fashion. This is so the team (and wider audience) knows what customer value is to be released next. By doing regular house-keeping on the list, the planning of the next chunk of work should be easy to visual and refine.

INTRODUCTION:

Over the last couple of years, there's been some major advances and backing in the virtual and augmented reality spaces with new consumer hardware and smartphone-powered options. You only have to look at the new Tango-enabled phones and some of announcements from Google to see that things are becoming more mainstream.

In this blog post, I will show how to create a WebVR application using equirectangular photos. The app will work on headsets, mobile devices and also within web browsers.

In this article, I am going to explore how projects can be successfully delivered when there are multiple stakeholders and multiple streams of work a.k.a work streams. I use the work streams intentionally here, even though it is a significantly overloaded term and varies across organisations. In this context, it is a logical grouping of business value improvements, activities and tasks so that they can be managed appropriately and any expectation met. As our teams develop and work on larger and more complex projects, these different groups need to complete a continuous but progressive list of technical tasks. These tasks are grouped by whatever domain ontology is pertinent to the project and yet deliver the customer centric, business feature. For example, for UK's leading organisation that help save money by comparing a range of insurances, a cross-functional squad of engineers regularly delivered the aggregation engine theme of work, another squad delivered the client services that consumed various systems and this was all unpinned by a DevOps squad that delivered the continuous integration and continuous delivery strategy. This is how we aim to deliver all projects and forms part of Cake's software delivery process model.

The main basis is around reducing waste

We've got ambitious plans over the next 12 months; we've got eager teams, exciting clients and innovative technology.

But what's the secret to Cake's growth and expertise in running successful projects. You'll have to join us to find out the whole story, but a large part of it is: the way we recruit, our culture, and ultimately the people.

Installing OS X 10.10 Yosemite using VMWare Fusion

 

This guide will show you how to install a fresh copy of the new OS X which was announced by Apple yesterday. OS X 10.10 or Yosemite as it is known, is the latest Macbook and iMac operating system from Apple and comes with a list of fantastic new features. It hasn't been fully released yet and this guide will use the Developer Preview.

Apple stated that the public can try out early versions and for the first time since 2000, they are letting a large number of outsiders get a hands-on look. No final release date has been set but expect to see it around September.

In the previous post, we installed Micro Cloud Foundry on our local development machine and got it running without any trouble at all.

Last time, I gave an introduction for a series of posts that will discuss the internals of Cloud Foundry and how to put something more than a PetClinic demo app into 'the Cloud'.

In future installments of the Cloud Foundry Series, we want to talk in depth about how it works, so it would be cool if we could have a copy of Cloud Foundry installed locally so that we can have peek. And in steps Micro Cloud Foundry (MCF).

We are big fans of Cloud Foundry - the Platform as a Service from VMWare - here at Cake and have played around and used it on a several different applications through-out its development to the current iteration.

Now that it is a bit more stable, and useful for a variety of different programming languages, I thought it was about time that we discussed our experiences of the first open PaaS solution and expose a little of how it works.

Seems like a bit of a slow week in scala - but I'll update this page if I see anything more of interest. Feel free to drop me a mail or message @cakesolutions on twitter!

We've used heroku in the past for ad-hoc testing and staging our code for some smaller projects. Over the last couple of weeks, I've been picking up little bits of Scala and think it's ace that Heroku has added it to their polygot platform, a few days ago.
