Annual Company Review

08 Dec

We have just had our annual Company Meeting today – accompanied by some stellar Italian food. Part of my presentation was to review our development achievements over the past 12 months. In December 2008 we were using Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Source Safe – and that was pretty much it. Today, just 12 months later we have implemented the following:

  • Visual Studio 2008 Developer + Database Editions
  • Team Foundation Server 2008
  • TFS Source Control
  • Continuous Integration Server
  • Nightly Builds
  • Fully automated build and deploy to test servers
  • Unit Tests (20% Code Coverage so far)
  • Code Reviews
  • 2 projects using Scrum
We now score 10 / 12 on the Joel Test.
Wow, what a difference a year makes!
