I was “borrowed” to a Maintenance team to solve some issues with print module 😉

The estimation was for 5 Man days and I did that in 2, but anyway I must assist in tests and prepare an test environment. This time we used a new fancy tool – SharePoint – as a repository for the print specification documents. It has nice future to store other version on the same document – the same way as Subversion or CVS are working. As usual with such tools there was a problem with the diff! It was real hard to read what was changed and use of so many colours didn’t help! I was able to do the job only with our analyst’s help!

Don’t be afraid of analyst, may be helpful!

down to business

I got a new task! Hurraaa! I’m  not able to be bored at work 😉

It was once again related to print layout, but I’m not complaining. Many of them was quite simply – move one line there, make some part of text bold, change text size and so on. Nothing complicated. Till the last task.

I had to show on a print page customer’s bank location, but not a name – some 6 digits long number! We have dedicated web service to retrieve such informations base on logged in user. So I started looking in to it to find that data. Yeah… bunch of XMLs with different data structures… hopeless job! I tried asking around, maybe someone already did that or would be able to push me in right direction, but no luck! I asked our architect, but he didn’t know also, he will try to find someone who did the web service 😉

The last chance left, try to ask a business guy for some example of the value and then traverse  databases to find that data 😀 So, it looks like I have a work for next day!

the first day – once again

Today was my first day at work after another short vacation 😉 This time I had spend time clearing area around my home – to prepare it for last step before move in 😀

Let’s back to work – today I’ve got a new task – prepare new print layout for new document and it has to be ready before end of month. Not enough time but it just has to be ready for test and rest will be polished during tests. Team mate already build small application that will be used as a front-end for the print out.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

My job is to prepare a layout base on a specification. It should not be difficult but as usual business will change its mind when get some draft version. That’s why I need to do it fast – sooner it’s better – business will have more time to complain 😛
