Weather is strange. It snowed a lot in the first week of March in fact more than the snow in Dec. Yesterday temperature was 12 degree, sunny and warm. Today the temperature dropped to -2 degrees here in Burnham and it is also snowing, not that much though.
I am not doing very good heath wise, have this cold since last week and it is annoying me.
Long weekend is coming next week and I need to plan something for that.

I recently came to know about Flutter.io which is an open source mobile development SDK from building mobile apps. Interesting thing to note here is that as per the Flutter.io page they say it can let you create native apps for both Android and iOS which is really interesting.
Few years ago I personally learned building mobile apps natively on Android and iOS. I created apps using Java and Swift and it was amazing experience. I felt really good when I also published those apps on both play store and app store.
I wanted to create more apps but honestly I never got a chance to do that again (or no one actually paid me ;)). I do have some ideas to develop more apps, not really to make a product out of it but mostly to solve some of my problems and make my life easier. I am trying to follow #…

This month I spent lot of effort in turning this blog IndieWeb compliant. So far things are on right track. I was able to configure the linkback Drupal module and it is very good. There are many other things which are still pending like managing photos, checkins and webmentions from social media sites like twitter.
On Indieweb website "Known" is mentioned as the CMS which is compliant with IndieWeb guidelines and I am just thinking of using it for my secondary site. May be I can set it up on ravi.pro domain although I decided that I will use that domain for simple stuff and use github.
May be I can create a subdomain on this domain. Something like known.ravisagar.in or stream.ravisagar.in Not sure yet but let me think about it.
Trying the like class article and it's awesome!

I love meeting clients and listening to their problems. I remember working for client understanding their requirements I used to start visualising the structure of the solution. When I was working for creating a web application I used to start asking question to myself. Should I create a new Content type for this or use taxonomy instead for similar type of content. There are number of factors to consider here. Especially the fields that are required on the Content type.
In Drupal you have Content type, Jira has Issue type and quite often I ask myself same question. Should I create a new Issue type for this type of ticket or use an existing one along with Components.
In Drupal you have the option to display what fields will appear on edit form and what fields needs to be displayed. In Jira…

Last year I cleared for Jira Admin and Agile Development with Jira Software certification in one attempt. To be honest I was scared whether I will be able to clear the exam or not. When I did the sample tests I failed in initial attempt. Today I actually want to share some more tips that I hope will help people are are preparing for the exam.
I also wrote a blogabout tips on clearing and passing the Jira Admin exam and it was well received. Today I will share more tips on both the exams.
Atlassian Certified Jira Administrator
I am assuming you are already experienced Jira Administrator so you should already have good understanding of the configurations and the concept of schemes. The Jira admin exam won't only test your knowledge of these concepts but also how effectively you apply your…

The weather has changed dramatically in the past few days. This week there was sun for few days which is a surprise and it actually helped in changing the mood.
I just finished configuring linkback module on this site. So now you should be able to link to the blog and notes on this site and it will receive those webmention.
Pretty cool stuff and it tool me 4-5 days to configure and understanding how it works.
I am thinking of writing a detailed documentation around it.

Sometime back I wrote a blog about using a physical agile board and syncing it with your Jira tickets! Can't believe it?
Yes it is possible. Read me blog to known more about it.
Sync your physical Agile board with JIRA
Sky is the limit when it comes to using Jira for different use cases and with this ability to schedule the physical board with Jira board it opens up tons of opportunities for software teams to use Jira.
This is achieved using "Agile Cards - Printing Issues From Jira" from Spartez
I hope you will enjoy the blog.
