  • Blog Post: C# Status: 5/27/2005

    Short status today... These last two weeks have been a whirlwind ride for our team. We made a huge dent in our bugs to hit our goals for last week. We incentivized the dev team with late night dinners and they pulled through magnificently, fixing a high number of bugs. We feel good about the bugs...

    Last week we rocked on bugs. The dev team kicked it up a notch and started fixing bugs to hit their goals. Along with that we fixed all our bugs that were marked Pri1 and opened greater than 48 hours than Friday. It was pretty cool. On the downside our QA team had a one day bug bash. They installed...

    C# status skipped a week last week. Sorry about that. Mon and Tues of last week, we had the C# Strategic Design Review (SDR), where we bring in a couple of customers from different parts of the industry and show them general ideas about where we want to go with our future products. Then we note down...

    A number of people have asked about Beta2 and I've seen discussion about it. Im trying to figure out how much I can talk about it and in how much detail...but its close. Our team has been working hard to meet its bug goal for this week. While techinically we missed it this week, it was because we...

    Ahh, April appears followed by a week of downpour. Hordes of my friends disappeared this weekend to the slopes of Baker and Whistler, while I decided to run and play a bunch of sports instead. April seems like a nice fresh start on the C# team. Last week, Scottwil sent out a great kickoff mail outlining...

    Our bug counts finally dropped off in Beta2 and we hit a big 0 today. Jay has been ecstatic all day - if he could I bet he'd have one of those buttons you pin to your lapel and it would say "Ask me what our bug count in Beta2 is today!". We've had a couple of small issues that needed minding to this...

    The last two weeks have been intense and this has contributed to my lack of blogging our status. Whidbey Beta2 continues its inexorable shutdown. We fixed some compiler bugs and a particularly nasty IDE crash but apart from that looked good. Our QA team finished their final test pass and we feel good...

    Sorry for the late status post - last Friday was quite a rush. We entered last week with ~50 Beta2 bugs. We've had this number for the past two weeks, so Jay and I decided to start beating the drums to get our counts down. Teams rose to the challenge magnificently and brought a number of bugs to us for...

    I was sick all last week, so this week started slowly for me as I fought fatigue and an onslaught of bugs and process issues. Our fix rates have definitely slowed this week, as we've only started accepting bugs that have a large customer impact are rigourously tested and dont have a high risk. This week...

    Our shut down of Whidbey Beta2 continued this week, with ask mode beginning last Monday. Jay, Kartik and I began holding a "ship-room" meeting twice a day, where teams came in with their bugs and justified fixing them. This slowed down our bug fixes, but also helps make sure we fix the right set of bugs...

    The dev team came out a swinging this week. We started with a fairly high amount of bugs and last week they did a great job of exceeding our expectations of fix rates, by fixing about 120 bugs. This week the C# release team expected a slowdown - hey we thought, all the easy bugs went last week right...
  • Blog Post: C# this week 1/21/2005

    We had a rollicking ride this week in our PU. Bugs once again became the name of the game. After two months of security push, we started transitioning back to bugs this week. The release team (Jay, Kartik and I) have started to do the standard swan songs for releases - Define the date when we go to ask...
