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.

  1. Mike, regarding integration tests. We’ve once had a few selenium tests (you may ask about those on the mailing list). While selenium tests are a good thing (especially since those would be capable to find UI issues), routing can be tested in other ways. Once we know which routes we need we should have one test per route. I think there should be some examples in our functional tests.

    One other option worth exploring are rails integration tests. Ideally, we’d have all of them but this is a too eager goal for just one term 😉

    Cheers!
