Development best practices

Hello all,

Hope today finds you well.
I'm looking to take my knowledge of best practices within the
development lifecycle to the next level.

Basically I want to follow industry recognised, Microsoft approved
practices for every aspect of the lifecycle - so planning and
architecture, team development, testing procedures, change control and
bug-tracking, version control - etc etc. What software to use, which
practices to follow etc.

I was hoping some of you may be able to point me in the right direction
with regards to literature / articles / experience?

This would be a great help.

Many thanks,
Pablo.

Provided you are in .NET, a good place to start, architecture wise, is the
patterns and practices site:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/patterns

The MSDN site, overall, is a good portal. There are plenty of links to blogs
that cover many of the topics you desire. Getting a good RSS aggregator is a
good idea for culling through the blogs.

The following url points to an article written by Damian Conway entitled "Ten Essential Development Practices": http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2005/07/14/bestpractices.html Althought the article has Perl as a focus, I thought that some of the general points made might be of interest to the Python community. It would certainly be interesting to put together an analogous version of this article that centers on Python. Best Regards,

Could anyone recommend a book (or a web site) that defines best practices in ASP.NET application development? E.g. 1) Precede your control id's with type of control btnSubmit, txtName, etc. 2) Group relevant .aspx files into subfolders within your project etc.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
