What's worked for Jay and his tribe:

  • homogenous workstation - all windows.
  • self extracting zip, with bat files that install ancillary tools (IDE, JDK, etc)
  • check registry for latest service packs, if not present get them and install.
  • install scripts can also update workspace

What doesn't work for Jay and his tribe: Some cool tools don't work on windows

Other wins:

  • spinning up entire stack of VMs automatically using jira, amazing stuff. harass Kevin until he documents it.
  • createing env through jira to enforce naming scheme and other conventions that make it all go.
  • source control for database, using liquibase - migrations forwar and back, scripts are under source control.
