Stand up The standup meeting has become a part of

first_imgStand upThe standup meeting has become a part of the modus operandi of many software development teams. It’s the daily gathering where developers talk about what they got done, what they plan to get done, and what’s in their way. Designed to be short but collaborative, the standup meeting is different from the way that projects used to be managed.Projects used to be managed by managers scurrying from office to office and developer to developer collecting individual statuses: where they were succeeding and where they were failing. Later, the scurrying was replaced with e-mail requesting status updates.Every once in a while there would be public floggings known as project status meetings where developers would be called out for missing their deadlines. And the demoralized and frustrated group that was the project team would retire to their offices and cubes to trudge through the project some more. There were no systems that promoted developers to work together; there was only a system of administration and bureaucracy.This approach didn’t work because it didn’t foster group commitment to the team about what they were going to get done and—more important to how Yammer can be used to improve the development of software—it didn’t expose the problems that developers were struggling with so they could get help. Standup meetings are fundamentally built on shared commitment and openness about our struggles to meet commitments. Years ago, we heard about a movement in software development that was more about individuals and interactions than processes and tools. It was about responding to change and not a rigid plan. Of course, I’m quoting from the Agile Manifesto.Agile development didn’t spring to life overnight, but slowly and over time we’ve adapted as an industry a more agile approach to how we develop software. A similar change is happening in the way that we communicate, and it’s happening in the same fits and starts that agile development initially had. The change is about collaboration, not negotiation. It’s about getting things done rather than having documentation. The changes that we’re seeing in communication follow the same openness and transparency that created agile nearly 15 years ago.One of the tools that stands to change the way that we communicate is Yammer. Microsoft purchased Yammer in 2012 and has been integrating it into its products and services, creating a future that includes Yammer integrated into the Office applications we use every day.But the question is how does a mass-market enterprise social tools help developers write better software? Clues are in how Yammer aligns to the direction we’ve been headed for years and what we’re already doing in person for agile development. Clues can also be found in the way that we collaborate outside our enterprise, despite Yammer being described as the enterprise social network.last_img read more

And in two weeks, Iowa will allow people to place a bet on a dozen sporting events with just the click of a button.Whether in the casino or on the couch, Iowans will soon be able to place bets on professional, collegiate and international sporting events.Mobile apps like FanDuel have grown in popularity. Wendy Runde, Vice President of the Diamond Jo Casino, said that their casino is now partnering with them to get in on the action.“They made their splash in the daily fantasy sports operation in 2009,” said Runde. “And lately they emerged as a leading sports betting provider in the United States.”Brian Ohorilko, Administrator for the Iowa Racing and Gaming Comission, said online players will have to physically walk into casinos to prove their age and identity and set up an account before they are allowed to place bets.“They only work within the state of Iowa,” said Ohorilko. “And so, technology will be part of this certification process and any provider of an online sports wagering company will need to ensure that those geo-locations will be in place so that wagers are only conducted within the state.”The law still stands that you must be 21-years or older to place a bet.These apps are only allowed to be used within the state. Therefore, if someone were to live in a state such as Minnesota or Wisconsin, they would have to cross into Iowa to be able to use the app.Anyone who breaks these laws could face criminal charges.
