Bugspad and Future Plans

Code cleaning, and rigourous testing and bug fixing, underwent this week. Tested the instance with bigger datasets, and the tested for response times.
The current code, is also a bit untidy, and needs some refactoring. So, I have started my work on making, a design documentation, with explicit, details,
of the workflow of the application. Currently hand-drafting it, then I would be digitising it(For the time being I am uploading my workflow explanation,
charts which is not of great quality 😛 ). I have divided the whole workflow, according to urls, and then subdiving it into components, which have an
effect on the performance (especially speed), directly, ie all SQL/Cache queries, being made. This would allow a clear idea, of the purpose, and role
of each component. This would also invite more contributors, and increase the understandability of the current code. Also, it would allow to focus especially,
on the bottlenecks of time in the workflow, and experiment, with different available tools and methods. So, this would be what I would doing into next week. Cheerio!




Xtreme Programming into Bugspad

I am now into the last phase of my project. Due to delays and bit less communication post mid term, due to
my poor internet connectivity (which was my sole responsibility, and I agree 😦 ), I could not discuss much with
my mentor much. However I am planning to use my backup plan to discuss what was remaining, and make the implemented features robust and error free. It will be my toughest week of the project, testing out and removing tad bits of the code. Here I go to have a taste of XP (Xtreme Programming).
PS. Was short on words!

Up from slumber into the pre alpha release mode.

A really long gap of a week, the slumber period, caused by the havocous TPSW department of our college, due to which I could not work much. Now fortunately the period is over. I could not devote much time to my work, so I am going to make up for the time in the coming days. The work planned remains:

  • Redisifying the mysql queries.
  • Fixing any incumbent bugs
  • Working with my mentor on rpm packaging of the code.

The extra features, for the admin interface such as the permissions and groups is due, after this, which we will be working on. In spirit of the pre Alpha release.
