For 11 years, Eldarion has operated as a “virtual” company. We have no offices and no two people work in the same location. Most people work from their homes. Here are some things we do to make that work.
DjangoCon US 2019 took place at Mission Valley Marriott in sunny San Diego from September 22-27. Eldarion’s Katherine Michel shared some insight into what that experience was like and what’s on the horizon for Django!
PyCon US 2019 took place at Huntington Convention Center in downtown Cleveland, Ohio from May 1-10. Eldarion’s Katherine Michel wrote about what it was like to experience PyCon US for the first time!
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.
