Topic: Coding Services Info

To Do:

  1. Create a new project ticket to store requirements.
  2. Create 1 tasks or artifact for each specific feature or deliverable to the client. For example, one artifact for the framework, and one for each form, report, and supporting application such as an installation program, or help file. If a printed user manuel is desired, we usually complete that with a separate Documentation project, but you could add that as a task to the requirements document as well.

2-Step or Rolling Estimates

With our 2-Step approach, we stop after an initial step-1 effort and seek authorization to build the application. With our rolling estimates approach, we just roll right into building the application frequently starting the initial coding phase toward the end of a Req+Design phase.

Informal, Formal, and Robust

For our PSDP informal path, the requirements project is approved and we usually just roll with the requirements project as Step-2 of our 2-Step approach. With our Formal and Robust paths, our preferred technique is to copy the initial requirements into a new project and close the Initial Requirements project as complete prior to building the application. This allows us to establish a baseline of requirements and estimates we can measure ourselves against as the project proceeds. Plus, it clearly documents and changes in scope.

Project management. Generally project management ranges from 10% to 30% of a project budget. However, the amount of project management required depends on the project.

When converting an application, developers need access to a working version of the old app.

Setup old application so Prestwood developers have access to exercising the application. The old app can be setup at Prestwood, or at the client. If at the client, we need VPN access available to the application throughout the duration of the project.

We all know that many, many emails are regularly blocked by various anti-spam mechanisms. This is a good thing - considering all the spam being generated. Here are some tips for helping your messages get to your intended recipients.

v1.1 of psSendMail will soon be replaced by v2.
Posted By Wes Peterson, Post #100706, KB Topic: psSendMail DLL
  +Add Comment

Since the release of psSendMail v2, we've had some users ask about missing line breaks in the emails they send. The problem is not a defect, it's a side-effect of psSendMail's new HTML option. If the HTML parameter is set to true, HTML-enabled email clients will treat carriage-return and line-feed characters as mere white space. If the HTML parameter is set to False, your line-breaks will be preserved.

Social networking is a bit confusing! Emailing and calling are still the standards. Is faxing still ok? What about Facebook? Do I friend someone or become a fan of their fan page? Wait, what happened to fan pages? Are they now Facebook pages? What about Facebook groups? What about LinkedIn, YouTube, Twitter, MySpace, and others?

The following articles are posted to the PrestwoodBoards knowledge base:

Backlinks are a sometimes mis-understood and often mis-used part of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) which are part of the range of services Prestwood offers to our clients.  It is very gratifiying when the power of Backlinks to the Prestwood Websites are quantified and in his article Douglas B. Miller for his November 2012 Tektip not only shows the value of our backlinks but also does a fantastic job of explaining them.  How did he get such great backlinks?  He created an account on Prestwood.com
