What is a Scrum Development Team - 7 minute Guide

I have noticed in many places that are working on implementing Agile methodology a popular misconception around the question who are the Scrum Development Team. Most people wrongly assume that it is the de facto developers who write the code and when I point out that it is not the case it is being met by dismay and skepticism. "Developers are developers, who else can development team be?" I was told once in a such discussion, and the answers to that is hidden with in the Scrum guide If one will go and carefully review the guide one can find the following definition there: "The Development Team consists of professionals who do the work of delivering a potentially releasable Increment of "Done" product at the end of each Sprint."

How To Make WiFi Tethering in Windows 10 or Windows 7?

It happens, specially when you are doing some testing with mobile devices, that you need to connect to only internally available application. The issue is with devices that have only WiFi connection and cannot be directly connected to internal network (LAN).

SQL Server - How to search in all Databases for Stored Procedure that uses specific table

My team and I were recently faced with a challenge that required us to search the database for a stored procedure that contains reference for a specific table or another stored procedure. We were able to accomplish that by a simple text search query that uses the system object definition and goes like that: SELECT OBJECT_NAME(object_id) FROM sys.sql_modules (nolock) WHERE definition like '%----SOME TEXT HERE----%' The interesting part begins once we were faced with a more complex system structure that included stored procedures which can be called from different databases and include inserts, updates and selects to yet another set of databases. Of curse executing the same query again and again for each database to perform the required search was not an option so the solution presented itself in an undocumented system stored procedure called sp_MSforeachtable . This stored procedure allows us execute the same query for all the databases on the server with "?" us

DONE with the talking now the installation.... Installatio
