Definition of “done”

It’s been a long way for the definition to get to this blog post, so i’ll choose the one which favors the most, meanwhile its revision history:

An example Story definition of done would look like this.

  1. All story should have automated acceptance test.
  2. The story should have working code supported by unit test that provide around 60 – 70 percent coverage.
  3. The story should have well defined acceptance criteria.
  4. The code must have been written as a pair or should be code reviewed.
  5. Code must be completely checked in to the source control system and the build should pass with all the automated tests running.
  6. The product owner must accept the story.
Sprint Definition of done:
  1. Product owner should have defined a sprint goal.
  2. All stories completed for the spring must be accepted by the product owner
  3. All the automated acceptance tests should be running for the stories in the sprint.
  4. All code should have been pair programmed or must have gone thorough a code review process.
  5. If there is a database involved, the database scripts must have been automated and tested.
Release Definition of done
  1. Product is deployed to the test box and makes it to staging
  2. Product has a formal release date.
  3. There are deployment documents for the release
  4. Training manuals are available for users.
  5. All stories for the release are completed and accepted.
  6. The release does not have any level one bugs.

C2P productivity ratio

If you’ve been reading startup blogs for years and never started anything, it’s time to accept that your tendency is to be a consumer.

An article worth reading, as well as the result of the case study by Matt Jaynes with him dealing with C2P ratio.

  • Consuming for the pure love of learning is absolutely ok.
  • Producing purely because you have a fire that won’t die until you do is fine, too.
  • But don’t kid yourself about who you are.

Social media: Detoxification

It’s one of those posts at the end of the year, summing up the results of 2014 and preparing for 2015.

As the main challenge of 2015, I’ll be slowly leaving social media towards old school writing and mumbling about different daily stuff in my blog.

  • September 2014 – vk.com account closed.
  • December 2014 – Instagram account closed.
  • Facebook account – remains for cross-posting
  • Google+ – do I still have it?
  • Twitter – never been writing there much, mostly used by Social plugin in my blog.

Too much time wasted for repetitive information flow in social media.

Enormously small percentage of that data is useful. Plus, most of the people in friends list are known personally – so why spoiling the opportunity of sharing something good personally. Socialise offline! 😉
