Issue Tracking – It’s Just Not The Numbers!


Software Development seems like a simple term to understand and as the consumer market grows day by day, it is creating a rather wide yet simpler effect on its users. The diversification of the users is increasing by the passage of time and we can clearly see that the average product (software) user is now a common man! It is now a common man game, and people don’t need to be specialists or have certain “titled” roles to operate the hardware and software. With the development  on the internet and the evolution of the “Internet of things” the common man will have more access and power in their hands as ever before; But there is a catch to this revolution;

If we consider the looking glass in both ways then the consumer side is in far less complicated grounds than that of the manufacturing side; How? Well there are two words; Rapid – Deployments! Yes sir!, there is a huge number of users to a single application and they all want it running and healthy, because if that is not the case, then a whole mass of users will simply shift themselves to another one and will forget about it in the next hour;

It is not a hidden secret anymore that if we want to run an “efficient” software development, testing, deployment and support operation, we need to have a database that can reflect the status of this activity anytime we want and anywhere we want; The Project managers would want data to be represented in a manner that it reflects their team performance, criticality of the current issues and above all the resource time allocation in regards to the cost of the project! Now, for this several tools are available in market and most of these are free of cost; Now, I am not going in details and comparisons of issue to bug tracking systems that are available in the market, you can simply Google the terms and will be amuse yourself that how many are there!

inForm – A Shapeshifting Device That Lets You Touch Stuff Through a Display

inform-a-shapeshifting-display-that-lets-you-reach-out-and-touch-something We’ve move past the era of mouse and keyboard, the devices we see today work on touch, voice commands, and gestures. But is that it? Would we be using glossy glass surfaces in the future in order to interact with a digital device? This experiment done at MIT shows us that the future of computing is not pixels but atoms. Atoms that we can interact with in much more realistic manner than we do on a glass surface. Continue reading
