Open source is a key to the software development these days – and Polarion knows that fact very well. Subversive – Subversion Team Provider for Eclipse is a Polarion-sponsored project which is not only free to use, but everyone can look at its sources and contribute through the Eclipse project. Polarion Extension Portal lists many extensions which are free to use and are shipped with sources included, and a lot of them were authored by Polarion. (more…)

Code reviews help spread knowledge, catch bugs in advance and reduce technical debt. Together with test-driven development or pair programming they can greatly increase code quality and maintainability. We are in no way sorry for implementing it in our R&D team, and we use it while developing Polarion.
So now that you are convinced that code review is what you must have, the question is: how to approach it? There are various tools for various version control systems, but you have Polarion and would like something integrated. Or you want to start quickly and maybe transition to something more robust later. In this article, I’ll show you how to do code review in just two simple steps based on our experiences.
In this second of a 2-part series, I will show you how Polarion’s Tier 3 support uses Polarion with Kanban in conjunction with our Polarion ALM system to effectively manage hard-to-predict team workloads.
In this first of a 2-part series I will share some basic info about the Kanban method. The second part (stay tuned) will show you how the Tier 3 support team at Polarion Software R&D uses Kanban in conjunction with our Polarion ALM system to effectively manage hard-to-predict team workloads.
