In the past 20 years we have seen the evolution of internet from a "motionless" bunch of information to an interactive system where all information are directly provided by all users. This kind of evolution started from the necessity of the new trading systems to receive data with the lowest latency possible. Since the HTTP protocol didn't and doesn't support a direct and stateful connection from the server to the client, new approaches were experimented. The most popular are:

  • Long Polling:

This technique is based on a polling made by the client. When the connection is established with ...

Lately, at Agilo Software we have been quite busy working on our testing infrastructure, in order to improve our continuous integration system and get better feedback for our development cycle. So far we achieved pretty good results and we are confident that this can help us speed up our continuous delivery quite a bit!

We haven't stopped fixing bugs and producing new features though, and today we would like to present one of the most important features we recently released: the filter for the scrumboard in Agilo for Scrum.

Similiarly to what was already available in the backlog lists ...

In our last blog post we talked about how we restructured the backlog filtering feature. This post is a sort of follow up, in that the feature we are discussing today, which has just been released, is closely related to the filtering.

 

Agilo search

The most important aspect of this new search feature is that now you can not only search for user stories, but also tasks.

Also search by id is now supported so you can just start typing an id and you will see a list of matching items.

From the search results you can either look at the item ...

Lately, here at Agilo Software, we have been brainstorming a lot about Agilo for Scrum and some of its present and future features. In this blog post we would like to talk about one of the outcomes of this activity, which has been implemented and recently deployed in production: the new backlog filtering feature.

The ability of filtering the product backlog is not completely new, but what we have done was refactoring the filtering logic and the UI, so that filters could be applied in a more context-dependent fashion.

Now it's possible to filter indipendently the product backlog, both ...

Agilo for Scrum - Perfomance bump

Over the last sprints, we've been rather busy completely rewriting the front-end of the Agilo for Scrum service. We focused on performance and in implementing an architecture that was amenable to rapid change. Today we're happy to announce that the new version of Agilo for Scrum is live.

Our performance focus was on UI responsiveness and page load time, and to that end the new version of Agilo for Scrum is significantly better than the previous installment. There's still room for improvement, but if you've been using ...

What's on the Horizon with Agilo for Scrum?

Agilo for Scrum started off as a very simple concept. We wanted to create a very focused tool whose only purpose was to facilitate good Scrum practices. This remains our goal, though along the way we've battled some major performance problems in our client side implementation.

Agilo for Scrum started off as a very simple concept. We wanted to create a very focused tool whose only purpose was to facilitate good Scrum practices. This remains our goal, though along the way we've battled some major performance problems in our client side implementation.

For some time, we engaged in this battle by attempting to optimize our code against the framework that we chose to implement our client side UI -- Sproutcore (version 1.4). This worked in a way, because there are some simple things one can do to squeeze significantly better performance out of Sproutcore, for ...

Backlog Searching

A product backlog can get rather large if you're not planning carefully.  Heck, it can get rather large even if you are planning carefully, and despite our recent performance improvements, finding Stories in your backlog may still be a time consuming nightmare ...
