Data and application processing evolve. Each of these application components starts at a certain stage in their life cycle and change as the rest of the application’s capabilities mature. Putting order to the Sequence of Sprints in an Application Development project could take advantage of these evolutionary cycles in order to implement a scope ofContinue reading “SCRUM / Sprint Sequencing”

The Data Manifesto
All Data Are Protected (ala The Matrix) An Event occurs that is associated with a collection of data attributes that need protection. Each unique Event has a finite list of Data that are expected to occur when a new instance of an Event happens. In almost all cases, that list of Data includes, at least,Continue reading “The Data Manifesto”
Software Engineering: How do you start?
There are interesting challenges in applying the art and science of Engineering Disciplines to Software Analysis and Design. If we accept the notion that we need as complete a collection of Requirements as possible either for a full blown application solution (change or new) or a SPRINT to add functionality to either an existing applicationContinue reading “Software Engineering: How do you start?”
A current definition provides us this: or·thog·o·nal [awr-thog-uh-nl] adjective 1. Mathematics . a. Also, orthographic. pertaining to or involving right angles or perpendiculars: an orthogonal projection. b. (of a system of real functions) defined so that the integral of the product of any Continue reading “Orthogonal Views…”
Remember Codd and Date?
These were two technology authors who were quoted on the subject of Relational Integrity and a Normalized Data Model. Their ideas of reducing redundancy in the physical data schema and protecting the mandatory relationships between entities took a whole lot of attention about how to create, define, and manage data so that it was safeContinue reading “Remember Codd and Date?”
