A Note When Using WAMPSERVER

Hey guys I just wanted to tell you about a thing that happened to me when i was using WampServer to install my Joomla and Drupal.

I was having problems when i tried to upload the servers, my icon color stayed in “orange” and it was supposed to be green so I researched a little and found that, because I have SQL Server installed on my PC, it wasn’t able to upload the wamp servers until i stopped ALL of SQL Server services.

Sprint Planning – Sprint 5

For Drupal’s QA

  • QA’s document will be redefine because of the need to register successful tests and not only bug findings.

Drupal’s Module

  • It will be finished this sprint.

We decided to use GitHub as our source control (it will take over TFS)


  • There will be a meeting on Saturday 21 to get close and get the knowledge of the current project of Software Engineering 2

Other Plug-ins

  • Other plug-ins investigation (Android Studio (Java), iOS (Objective-C), Windows Phone (WinJS), …)

Sprint Retrospective – Sprint 4

Today’s meeting we talked about the following points:

First of all we gave a feedback about the Joomla plugin for those who are still making QA. where we discuss about an excel format to write bugs, what are they working on, and to solve some doubts.

– At the meeting all the people of the different teams where told to download the plugin directly from the TFS to work on it.

– Raúl asked to work from 9 to 10 on the Joomla site so nobody goes to the page while he makes some session time QA. Manuel will work from 10 to 11 on Frequencies and scales.

– We asked about doubts to solve them.

– We discuss with people to leave documentation of what they done on TFS to have the certain of what they have been working on, and to know how and why they do that.
