Gerrit Productivity Hacks – Flexible Logging: Set DEBUG level logging without Gerrit restart

diffy_logs

Many of us have been thrown into production issue, equipped (in the best case ;)) with only vague reproduction instructions and get stuck looking into logs and have only one wish: if I could only magically enable more detailed logging and replay the scenario… just without putting restart procedure into motion… One can argue for having DEBUG level enabled all the time but this is impractical for at least two reasons: too much information is as bad as too little and log files will explode with size. Well, our prayers were answered! Since CollabNet TeamForge Git Integration 8.6.1 release one …

Velocity

In today’s market, software development organizations find themselves racing against time. Enterprises are opting for best-of-breed—rather than single-vendor—solutions, requiring the ability to create a fully integrated development tool-chain, critical to enabling higher velocity, CI/CD, and DevOps.

Installing Jenkins for Use with TeamForge

This week I was working with a customer, helping to set up a sandbox environment for them, including helping them to build a local Jenkins server to use with TeamForge.  I’ve done this a few times now, but every time I end up back in the same places, figuring out the same things over again so this time, I’m going to document it for me, and for you.  There’s a pretty good chance, I think, that I’ll end up doing this again for a proof of concept with a prospective customer one day, so having this information handy will be… …

Scaled Agile to DevOps

Many people and companies have talked about Scaling Agile to DevOps and have tried adopting this approach to software development at different scales. While many companies have been successful in adopting the technique, only a few have been able to scale. The term DevOps (Development + Operations) was born around 2008 when some used the term to describe “Agile Infrastructure”. But ever since then, the two terms “Agile” and “DevOps” have been used selectively, either together or separately. In recent years some companies have successfully mastered Agile Execution at scale, making DevOps a hot new topic on every CIO’s list. …

The Internet of Things (IoT) is Getting Agile

Why engineers and organizations are turning to agile methodologies to build the connected device Every day, every hour, every minute, devices are becoming connected. The Internet of Things (or Iot) has gone from a buzzword floating through the echoes of Silicon Valley to a tangible and quickly advancing movement in the world of hardware. But, like a stone tossed into a pond, the effects of the Internet of Things are quickly rippling outward, causing immense changes to the environment surrounding it. And, as it turns out, the IoT is a rather big stone and it’s making a large splash. The …

ALM is a subset of PLM

In the production industry, software is very often the breaking point in the product lifecycle. Of course, the question raised is how to optimize software development and how to shorten time to market. The amount of software contained in “classic” products is substantial. A luxury car contains up to 100 million lines of code! Even a simple, computer controlled household appliance can contain up to 1 million lines of code. Medical devices contain up to 3 million lines of code and a jet fighter contains up to 6 million lines of code. Surely you are using a Product Lifecycle Management …
