How to improve a team's velocity?
By way of wrapping up my velocity mini-series ( Two ways to fill and iteration , Filling an iteration too well , and Velocity Targeting and Velocity Inflation ) I’m going to end with some advice on how to improve a team’s velocity. Over time these add up to big improvements. To use economic logic: this is about improving the supply-side. The supply-side argument (largely monetarist) suggests the way to solve unemployment is not to increase demand (Keynes style) but to loosen and liberalise the labour market. But back to software.

How to build a Development/Test/Demo CA
So I ended up running Windows Cerificate Services which proved to be an easy to use, robust solution. just had to rebuild my Test CA (on Hyper-V) so I thought I'll document the important steps (for self-reference and whoever might be interested). They usually expire on the very day where you have to do an important demo. Now by default there is an entry pointing to the CA's Netbios name. better solution is to create a revocation list once, and store that at a publicly available location. Next you have to publish a CRL. Set it to e.g. five years.
