Famous IT Quotes


UNIX is simple.


XPWeb could be your choice if you have a php environment and the best one in my opinion. Installing is a breeze as usual and the product is mature and reliable. It is more flexible in user management and creating profiles. It comes default with many roles like developer, admin, coach and so on and has the flexibility of creating your own profile if you wish and the access control also works great.

The project planning is perfectly done and creating iterations and stories is a breeze and less painful. You will enjoy creating itertaions for a week and adding the stories and tasks absolutley with less pain and it will make you great to follow the iterations and complete your iterations and thus feeling great abt your methodology and programming.

use xpweb as your xp tool

If you are used to extreme programming techniques (agile methodology - if you are new to this then see resources at the end) then you must sure be carving for a xp tool for your programming purposes. Actually you can have some thing called index stories , which you might simply write it on some index cards with story number, priority and description during your initial meetings and creating iterations and so on, writing sticky notes and things like that. (you might also be interested in scrum)

That kind of process works for big teams with big projects and so on. If you dont want to get used to that kind of process why not use a xp tool?.
