It’s finally over. My internship at AppSource is honestly a exhilarating bundle of experiences.

On Monday, we will have a rundown of the whole system to find any remaining bugs. It’s a bit disconcerting since we couldn’t do a pre-rundown of the system last Friday.

I’m still working on the registration page since it was really a mess. I need to finish it later.

There are still bits and pieces that still need to be polished like missing validators but I think we can manage them easily.

On the 4th sprint week we’ve managed to finish the rest of the minor tickets. Hurray!

Since we’ve already finished our tasks for the week, we decided to fix some bugs we’ve seen during our earlier sprints which was not yet reported.

End of the 3rd sprint

May 17, 2009

Just a short update. It’s been a long week and it’s already the end of our 3rd sprint week.

We’ve been resolving the remaining critical tickets and by Monday, we would be fixing the ‘minor’ tickets (I think).

So far there are still unreported issues but we were told to focus on the reported ones first before adding it to our burden.

Building on an existing project made me realize a lot of things.

It made me realize how important the things we did in our CS165 and CS192 were.

Oh how I wish the previous programmer used an ERD and provided some use case specs or even a class diagram. It could have saved me a lot of time and prevented a LOT of headaches.

Nothing new.

May 10, 2009

Last Thursday and Friday were typical ‘sprint’ days. I just resolved 7 ‘critical’ tickets. Some of them were trivial like a null reference exception and some required google-ing for a simpler solution. On Monday, we would be discussing some questions that we have gathered about the project. Hopefully, that may bring light to my confused mind @_@.

Our 1st SCRUM sprint week has gone by and we have resolved about 40+ tickets already. But that’s only for enhancements and pages’ feel and look. Now for the 2nd week, we’re going to tackle the ‘critical’ ones. Sadly, that’s not our only problem. In our quest, we have discovered many bugs and to-do sections in the BLSSRS that weren’t reported yet. More tickets to go!

Also, the only time I can really code well is at the office since I don’t have the luxury of a high-end computer so Visual Studio 2008 is so slooooow (Although for me, Netbeans still rules in that department). And I’m still learning ASP.NET and C# as I work on the project.

Anyway, here are the things I’ve encountered while working on BLSSRS:

1. “Wanted: Dead or Alive – Code name: Edoc“. Read the rest of this entry »

Today is Friday, a holiday! But not for me. Even though we’re not required to go to the office today, I still have tickets to resolve and fix for our first sprint week. The only consolation is that I can code while lying on the bed and take a nap now and then.

ASP.NET 3.5 Unleashed!

ASP.NET 3.5 Unleashed

ASP.NET 3.5 Unleashed

That’s the book I’m currently reading in preparation for next week. The book really starts from the basics of ASP.NET and delves deeper into advance topics such as security and login controls as you go on. I really recommend this book to people who are just starting out in ASP.NET like me. =)

As introduced by the book:

“ASP.NET is Microsoft’s flagship technology for building highly interactive, highly scalable
websites. Some of the largest websites hosted on the Internet were built with the
ASP.NET Framework, including Dell (, MySpace (, and
Microsoft (”
