#  Wednesday, 27 October 2004

Bijan Javidi, Senior Principal Consultant at Microsoft, held a two-day Trainer the Trainer (TTT) event in Augsburg for the GLS Development Process Best Practice training. In the audience: Alexander Zeitler, Peter Koen (soon to be Softie), Bernhard Spuida, Hannes Preishuber, Achim Oellers and others (no specific order, just to name a few).

As rehashing the entire two days would be a tad lengthy, I only pick two items that are important to understand why anyone would attend such a training:

  • Why Development Process?
  • Definition of Development Process Best Practice

Let's start with "Why Development Process?"

  • Make development
    • Predictable
    • Repeatable
    • Manageable
  • Reduce costs
  • Streamline application construction
  • Establish standards
  • Reduces risk in .NET projects

After those incentives to have a process at all, let's dig into what DPBP is - here is the definition:

  • Process based development methodology
    • Ultra light-weight, pragmatic and prescriptive
    • End-2-end development process model
      • From requirements to deployment
  • Minimum set of documents
    • Small number compared to UP
  • Step-by-step guideline
    • How to create these documents
  • Uses Office and Visio formats (UML)
    • DOC, XLS, and VSD templates
  • DPBP is agile
    • Leverages many XP features
  • End of prose text in development process
    • Minimizes text
    • Uses structured information
  • Lazy modeling
    • Model only if you have to
      • Architecture metaphor (XP)
    • Uses minimum of everything to do the job

Bascically we are talking initialization, analysis, design, implementation and deployment. And that was then the contents of the two-day workshop in Augsburg.

Networking was commenced at the evening event on Monday, in the Welser Kuche with a medieval meal:
