Have a functioning dev server, fairly familiar with Ruby and Rails but not as much with this older version. (No Coffeescript? Prototype? Gonna miss HAML…)

Next Steps:
Just going through some of the code/markup, and testing out use cases on the site looking for anything that could be a bug, or that could use some improvement as far as usability goes. I already have lots of
ideas for tweaking the styles and maybe optimizing some of the ajax calls. I will also take a look at the bugs currently in github and see if I can reproduce any of them.

Roadblocks:
Nothing at the moment, but I’m sure there will be many when I actually have a patch to submit!

Release Manager

with one comment

Over the course of this term (fall 2012), there are a few things that I would like to focus on as release manager. The first and foremost, work on getting release 1.0 out as soon as possible and as stable as possible. I will work with the team to try and get issues solved in a timely manner and try to assist people when needed.

Secondly, another thing that I feel that I should/can be able tackled this term is code submission stability through testing. Our test cases generally provide a good test coverage on unit and functionality however it lacks on testing routings. Many routing issues that were caused due to upgrade of rails should have been caught earlier on which could have helped speed up the migration of the code. A possible solution will be implement a Selenium solution or related solutions. This should help the stability of the application and speed up release times.
