Divan Visagie and Chris Tite shared at the recent Agile User Group session in June, hosted at Kaleidocode.
Divan Visagie discussed the challenges facing all of us when we need to make technology decisions on our projects. We face a constant barrage of new ideas that promise to help us do our job better, but it can be easy to get overwhelmed or even misled by the news cycle. In this video Divan points out some of the traps one may fall into and how to come to less biased conclusions about our technology choices.
Chris Tite shared on refactoring databases in an agile methodology.
Do you have dark places in your database where only the knowledgeable few fear to tread? Shouldn’t you try to change this? Treating your database as code and refactoring it as your software evolves is a good first step. Chris introduces Agile Database Techniques, looking at tools and techniques which can be used to manage your database in an Agile fashion, so that your database evolves as your software changes.
