This was my first instance of using and being a part of the scrum workflow. Even though I knew how scrum worked from learning it in a previous class, I was still shocked at how enjoyable and manageable the scrum workflow process was. Our group was assigned the InventorySystem component of Thea’s Pantry. For this sprint, I focused on the CheckInventoryFrontend part of the InventorySystem. Our group did a sprint pre-planning, and we created issues for the “Convert all InventorySystem projects to new project structure” epic. I first made a sub-epic, made each bullet point its own issue, and then linked those issues to CheckInventoryFrontend (Link: https://gitlab.com/groups/LibreFoodPantry/client-solutions/theas-pantry/inventorysystem/-/epics/29). I will now go into more detail about what I have accomplished during the sprint.
Evidence of Activity
Issue #1: Update devcontainer files
For this issue, both the devcontainer.json and Dockerfile files in the .devcontainer folder were compared and updated to match the same files in the GuestInfoFrontend.
Issue #2: Update Pipeline/CI files
For this issue, the .gitlab-ci.yml file, the Dockerfile, package.json, and Header.vue found in ./src were updated to match the already updated and working pipeline found in the GuestInfoFrontend.
Issue #3: All documentation, licensing, linting configuration, .gitignore, .gitattributes files must be updated or added
In this issue, docs/developer and linting files were added, and the .gitattributes file was updated.
Issue #4: Revise directory structure:
For this issue, bin was renamed to commands, files were moved from the top level into src, new commands such as build.sh were added, and some files and folders were deleted to match the GuestInfoFrontend.
I reviewed, approved, and merged the following issues:
What worked well?
Working as a team went really smoothly during this sprint. Our team had three frontends that were very similar, so once one person who was working on a frontend was able to figure out how to solve an issue, they would be able to help the other members working on frontends. Communication between team members was also great. When one member needed help, myself and other members would communicate over discord to discuss and fix the issue.
What didn’t work well?
I feel like there wasn’t much that didn’t work well. Very rarely in class we would get off topic and start a conversation about something else like discussing what computer parts are good. That time could have been better spent working on the issues.
What changes could be made to improve as a team?
We split the work so that basically one person was assigned to a part of the InventorySystem. We could have picked up issues in other parts of the InventorySystem to diversify our knowledge on how the InventorySystem works as a whole.
What changes could be made to improve as an individual?
Changes that I could have made to improve as an individual would be to actively search for a solution to problems that may have arised. When updating the pipeline, the program was giving me an unknown error and the professor said that he would look into the problem. Instead of trying to solve the issue myself, I waited for the professor to figure it out. Instead, I should have been also trying to find the solution to the error.
