Just a quick update to welcome people along to Agile Staffordshire for December. Nothing big and technical this month. There will be a lightning talk and some Christmas dinner, we usually have December as a social event so it will be a nice opportunity to come along and meet everyone.
A quick post about Agile Staffordshire. There is a session on Thursday 25th October 2012 at the Pie & Ale House in Stafford. This month it is the Minisculus challenge. I shall not provide details here as the group blog has it all.
I hope you can make it. Come along, it’s a great way to meet a lot of people interested and practicing agile development techniques in the local area. It’s an open forum with participants from industry, academia and of general interest.
Agile Staffordshire is a group of people from all over the area that get together to discuss all things agile, and other related topics in computing and software development. It’s an open forum and it usually gets together on the last Thursday of every month. Take a look at the Agile Staffordshire blog and if you’re interested, this Wednesday (26th September 2012) there’s a neat kata session.
Whether you work in software development, teach it or study it – it’s a great social forum to discuss it, share it and learn it.
I know two of the team members, Hugh Laird (Project Lead) and Andrew Coles (Lead Programmer / Maths), and I am absolutely chuffed to bits for them and their team members. It is a huge achievement to win two awards off the back of a busy final year of their respective degrees! I am so proud of them and their accomplishments, they will cut fine figures in the world of computing!
Keep in touch!
159 * 48 = 7632
includes all the digits from 1 to 9. Find all the other simple multiplications that utilise all nine digits.
This problem poses some interesting challenges. How will you ensure that your testing covers all possibilities?
Subversion is great. Really, I should say that using code management is a great idea; I just happen to use Subversion. I have been involved with iOS and Cocoa development over the last couple of years and find Subversion to be valuable when working solo or as part of a team.
This post will explain how to get your Xcode 4 project into Subversion. There is a lot to Subversion and I do not intend to cover it all here. I merely intend to get you going.
At time of writing, I am using Xcode 4.3.4 on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. You will need a subversion system; this may be accessed via HTTP or on the local file system. The screen shots shown here display settings used to connect to a Subversion system at Staffordshire University over HTTP. If you are a Staffordshire University student, ask your tutor regarding availability for your module or project.
You will need the following:
- Xcode 4.3.4 (it will likely work with later versions)
- Subversion repository details (ask your tutor or technical support for details)
- An Xcode project to import into Subversion.
The challenge is fairly simple: given a file containing one word per line, print out all the combinations of words that are anagrams; each line in the output contains all the words from the input that are anagrams of each other. For example, your program might include in its output:
enlist inlets listen silent
boaster boaters borates
Use the word List for comparing results.
