Last month, Eldarion launched the new Scaife Viewer for the Perseus Digital Library. Yesterday, I gave an online talk on the project, as part of the SunoikisisDC series of seminars on Digital Classics.
Eldarion is helping build the next version of Perseus.
Code coverage is an important aspect of good engineering practice. Without it, you are flying a bit blind writing tests.
In the previous parts we have learned how to write stories, groom and point them. Everything up until now has been done to prepare us to be able to plan a sprint.
Before you add a story to a sprint it should be pointed. Pointing a story means
assigning a number that represents complexity to it. Metrics like velocity are
driven by these points.
It is important to constantly be refining your backlog. This is accomplished through time-boxed meetings where the team performs an activity called grooming.
Every successful Scrum project starts with a solid backlog of items. Developing a good backlog requires discipline and vision.
We have run a lot of successful projects with Trello following a rough
Kanban-style approach that focuses on continuous delivery. However, as we have
taken on projects that involve more people and have longer timelines, the process
and tooling left us wanting more.
As the demands for richer experiences on the web have increased we’ve explored a lot of different solutions and have recently settled in on ReactJS.
