A coming together...

A good week for the refactoring project. The release procedures that are now in place mean that we've been able to react quickly to new functionality requests whilst continuing the new development efforts. Ah the wonders of a source control system being used properly...

It would be nice if we reacted at the right speed rather than just jumping when the users scream, but we'll get there. This week we had a couple of releases that could have done with a little more testing... Still, this was pointed out to the person who made the call to release and, well, they made the call.

The good thing was that the procedure we had in place meant we could do patch releases quickly during the week and we could be seen to be reacting to user problems - for want of a happy ending we'll ignore the fact that the users wouldnt have had problems if we hadn't rushed the initial release...

Repeatable, controlled builds rule. They give you confidence. They give you power. ;)
