ADMIRAL Sprint 13 review

A review of sprint 13 can be see at http://imageweb.zoo.ox.ac.uk/wiki/index.php/ADMIRAL_SprintReview_13.

In summary, Progress has been quite satisfying, with most scheduled activities completed, and also some unscheduled progress. Our new recruit is coming up to speed well with the project development and testing activities.

The initial dataset selection and display functions that will allow researchers to view their submitted datasets are functionally complete (apart from finalizing their deployment via the RDF Databank).

We have made substantial progress on updating the local file store system build scripts and test suite, with a view to building a system for use by the Evolutionary Development group.

Some progress has been made on updating and finalizing the Library Services RDF Databank service, but we are still awaiting a version that we can test and use as a target for dataset submission scripts.

For ongoing work, our immediate priorities are to (a) finish updating the local file store test suite, and (b) configure and deploy a system for the Development group. Beyond that, we need to focus on finalizing the RDF Databank API test suite, and building tools to allow researchers to select and submit datasets to the Databank.

ADMIRAL Sprint 13 Plan

Notes from a planning meeting for sprint 13 can be found at http://imageweb.zoo.ox.ac.uk/wiki/index.php/ADMIRAL_PlanMeeting_13.

Due to an unplanned staff departure, sprint 12 was abandoned part way through. Sprint 13 was deferred until a replacement could be engaged. (The intervening period was used to wrap up some development work on the MILARQ project.)

(Further, although the sprint was planned per schedule, writing up the meeting got overlooked until the date of the sprint review, hence this rather overdue post.)
