With this being our last Sprint for the semester, it couldn’t have ended on a better note. Cooperation between the team members and communication continued to be effective. Everyone seemed stepped up and the work ethic was beyond that I could imagine. Comparing to other team/group projects I have been on in the past.
During this sprint, I worked on creating a key for the endpoint authentication. We were still waiting on the actual key from the IAM team so in the meantime, I created a code that will give authorized individuals in the LibreFoodPantry access to their sites. Such has if a guest has access to the LibreFoodPantry portal, once they put in their login credentials, they will either be authorized or unauthorized. This was by request of the client.
Some of the issues that we faced was the getRange API calls. This method required additional coding to the NestTester, API and the backend. Once that was completed, we were able to move on from this project.
I think over the past two sprints, our usage and knowledge of GitLab Epics and Issues board just continued to improve. One issue we faced in the beginning was apply the proper weight to each ticket. As the sprints continued, our distribution of the weight continued to get better. We ended having a better workflow and a more balanced and shared workload.
With a good portion of our task completed, we mostly spent this sprint communication with the IAM team to get a better understanding of when they need to integrate security mechanisms into our remote function calls. We concluded that this will not be complete this semester and will have to be pushed to next years Capstone class.
We were giving the option to continue to work on this the rest of the summer to better improve the progress that we have. This is not a bad option since technically this is for a real work client that is expecting some type of prototype. Joe has decided to stay on and continue to work on this while myself, I have opted not to. With this being my last year, I have other opportunities that I will be pursuing to better myself in this field.
As the conclusion to this spring, the group decided that each member will record a portion of the project and prepare a video presentation. I’m overseeing the consolidation all the recordings and preparing a video presentation for Dr. Wurst. We broke down what needs to be discussed and each member will pick what they would like to talk about. I will take what’s left over to check off all the topics that we would like to discuss/present.
The capstone was a good experience and helped be become a better team member. Being able to see each member grow from the first sprint till now is always something that I am proud of because I know they each learned and took something away from this class. Not all was smooth, and we definitely had some bumps along the way but in a real world scenario, that is what happens and you have to learn how to adjust and get over those bumps. Theirs always a solution to any problem, isn’t that was coding is, solving problems.
