Track: Web Apps
Date: Tuesday, July 25
Time: 8:30am - 12:00pm
Location: Portland 255
This tutorial examines some of the software engineering practices relating to managing or working within a team on a medium to large project, and covers topics such as automatically generating internal documentation, managing your codebase using a revision control system, ensuring consistent coding practices using coding standards, and using a bug/task tracking system.
Covered will be problems related to managing the release process for large-scale applications and the way the tools previously discussed can be tied together to create a semi-automated development and release management infrastructure. Oxer will demonstrate various scripts and systems used to manage development and releases for the SiteBuilder project, where a team of developers collaborate on a codebase consisting of over 600,000 lines of PHP.
