Anyone who knows me will have a smile on his face when noticing the acronyms and heteronyms that have entered the ALM Ranger ecosystem. If you are wondering about acronyms and my feeling about them, then have a peek at TLA ... why, why, why? and for heteronyms beam over to TFS Integration Platform – Moving away from the TIP Heteronym. Oh by the way, TLA = Three Lettered Acronym
Here is an acronym lookup table for the ALM Ranger project codenames, that have sprinkled new acronyms over communication:
|ACRONYM||PROJECT TEAM NAME||Mug(beak)shot||RANGER PROJECT|
|ABE||African Black Eagle||Visual Studio Architecture Tooling Guidance|
|ACV||African Cape Vulture||Visual Studio Team Foundation Server Planning Guide|
|AHE||African Hawk Eagle||Visual Studio Lab Management Guidance|
|AMO||African Marsh Owl||Team Foundation Server Object Model Awareness … watch the space!|
|ATE||African Tawny Eagle|
|CEO||Cape Eagle Owl||Visual Studio Team Foundation Server Branching & Merging Guide|
Why Raptors? See Chatter … Aviation and Eagles … for those wondering where the Eagle Codenames in recent Rangers project are coming from 🙂 for the reason behind the use of these phenomenal creatures as our project mascots. All illustrations originate from http://birdsofprey.co.za, which is a “must visit” destination when you visit Dullstroom in South-Africa.
A special thanks to the ALM Ranger leads who are supporting this great initiative and helping us to keep the alive!
