Simple Sketches for Diagramming Your Software Architecture | Voxxed


If you’re working in an agile software development team at the moment, take a look around at your environment. Whether it’s physical or virtual, there’s likely to be a story wall or Kanban board visualising the work yet to be started, in progress and done. Visualising your software development process is a fantastic way to introduce transparency because anybody can see, at a glance, a high-level snapshot of the current progress.

Coding Horror

Coding Horror Logo

I'm Jeff Atwood. I live in Berkeley, CA with my wife, two cats, one three children, and a whole lot of computers. I was weaned as a software developer on various implementations of Microsoft BASIC in the 80's, starting with my first microcomputer, the Texas Instruments TI-99/4a. I continued on the PC with Visual Basic 3.0 and Windows 3.1 in the early 90's, although I also spent significant time writing Pascal code in the first versions of Delphi.

Portal:Free software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wikipedia logo

Free software is software that is distributed in a manner that allows its users to run the software for any purpose, to redistribute copies of, and to examine, study, and modify the source code. The term free software was coined in 1983, with free denoting the broad freedom given to users, rather than being available free of charge (i.e., freeware). Alternative terms for free software include software...

I was fed up with the lack of good open source beer software, so I thought I would make a small application that would do all the calculations for me. Before long, the application had over 10,000 lines, and at that point, I figured that I would just put it up on Sourceforge so that all the work I spent on it could be shared.

Richard Matthew Stallman is a software developer and software freedom activist. In 1983 he announced the project to develop the GNU operating system, a Unix-like operating system meant to be entirely free software, and has been the project's leader ever since. With that announcement Stallman also launched the Free Software Movement. In October 1985 he started the Free Software Foundation.

The Brew Site: The Beer Hacker: Web-based beer brewing software

Well, that future article is finally here, and in surveying the field of online, web-based beer brewing software, I've found three sites that aim to fit that niche, but my overall conclusion is that the field is wide open.

OpenSync project is an ongoing effort to create a synchronization framework that will be platform independent, general purpose synchronization engine utilizing modular plugins for content formats and different kind of connection types. Being based on plugins would allow extending it easily to new purposes and devices without radically changing the architecture itself, allowing it to support wide variety of devices used today and in the future.

Debian need to recategorize all their software

While i'm ranting, Debian needs to recategorize all their software. They should just use the Open Directory Project. And they need to add more fields for each package such as license, programming language, spoken languages, and environment (eg. Qt) like freshmeat.net.

plurals in software

I just committed to a new pattern in software. The plural of all words is made by just adding an "s". So the plural of query is querys.
I have some logic that will form <words><word>...<words> so it needs to be generic.

Target Audience

homme, You're right. Software intended for a common user should handle exceptions. I failed to explain that the software i write is usually for my own use, either at home or work. If i find some time, unlikely, i'll post a more thorough example.

Too short

Agree, but I would like to see ar real life positive example.
What's wrong is that this example is too short. I have yet to see a nice user input exception handling for a real life database entry screen. Ok, I can throw new Exception( "User is dumb.", NFE ) or maybe better, UserIgnorantlyTriesToEnterNotNumberException but I myself have to handle this puppy too or else it will go screaming up. And the dumb user will not pay me for such software!

Rants of SD Environments

In reflection to Michael's Hey Developers, You Suck - here's my rerant. Same situation, different company. The problem i have here is a lack of respect for data by not using normalized forms and referential integrity.

Since a lot of our work is aggregating massive amounts of data, i'm often stressed by the fact that a small mistake can have large consequences.

Did you hear that CDC overstated its obesity death figures? Did you hear that the FBI may scrap a $170 million software project?

Those are disgraceful and i work hard to prevent such and embarrassment to my company.

The other problem we have is strongly connecting data to code by using VBA and stovepiping our software. The problem with tying data and code is that we manually format our data to work with our code. This presents a problem when in 6 months we want to swap in new data. The problem with stovepiping is it produced non-flexible code. So when we want to add a feature (like multiuser) to an application, it's very difficult.

One last remark. TrickleUp, the software that runs my personal website, allows me to write code to the quality that i want. I suggest each person take up at least one project to relieve stress.


I've found my non-iTunes iTunes and it's even better. Unfortunately, sound on my computer is still not configured.
