Become Your Own Personal CFO

Budgets and personal finances are not most people’s favorite topics, and certainly not one of mine.  Even bank executives have problems in this area, but if you’re an entrepreneur so do you.  You’re concentrating so much time on your business, your personal checkbook takes a back seat.  Then one day you are met with the startling fact that you’re not saving enough for lean times and you panic.

Acunetix Issue Tracker Integration with GitHub

Issue trackers such as Atlassian JIRA, GitHub and Microsoft TFS powerful and essential tools in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) of almost any software project. They help development teams streamline collaboration and manage their work without getting lost in an endless stream of emails and PDF reports.

It is therefore a logical next-step to leverage existing issue tracker infrastructure to report security vulnerabilities directly to the people who need to action them, in the format and workflow-tools they are already using. This way, security vulnerabilities are tracked and perceived as issues which need to be fixed, just like any other high-impact issue the development Team may have on its plate.

This is precisely why Acunetix integrates with Atlassian JIRA, GitHub and Microsoft TFS’ issue trackers out-of-the-box. Different issue trackers can be set-up per-Target and Acunetix is smart enough not to open duplicate issues of vulnerabilities it has already opened.

Anytime the cash flow in a business, large or small, starts to tighten up, the money management of that business has to be run as a “tight ship.”

Some of the things you can and should do include protecting yourself from expenditures made on sudden impulse. We’ve all bought merchandise or services we really didn’t need simply because we were in the mood, or perhaps in response to the flamboyancy of the advertising or the persuasiveness of the salesperson. Then we sort of “wake up” a couple of days later and find that we’ve committed hundreds of dollars of business funds for an item or service that’s not essential to the success of our own business, when really pressing items had been waiting for those dollars.

What’s the difference between a user story and an Epic when it comes to Agile?

They are very generic term actually. There is many way to interpret them, varying in the literature and how people see them. Take everything I say with a huge grain of salt.

It takes a thousand voices to tell a single story

Usually, an Epic comprise a very global and not very well defined functionality in your software. It is very broad. It will usually be broken down into smaller user story or feature when you try to make sense of it and making them fit in an agile iteration.
