Join TDL for weekly sprint review on January 27 (cancelled)

UPDATE: The sprint review scheduled for this Thursday, January 27 at 2:30 PM has been cancelled. This week’s development sprint was called off because circumstances required a temporary reshuffling of personnel to address an internal technical need.

We regret any inconvenience and will communicate plans for future development sprints/sprint reviews as they are planned.

The Texas Digital Library invites members to get a look inside the TDL software development process by attending the regular demonstrations held by our software team at the end of each development cycle. The next of these demonstrations will take place Thursday, January 27, at 2:30 PM.

What: Public Sprint Review and Demo
Where: TDL Offices and Online
When: Thursday, January 27 at 2:30 PM

The Review will demonstrate work completed during Sprint 14 for the TDL Preservation Network.

Building on the foundational infrastructure already in place, the TDL is developing additional functionality to meet the digital preservation needs of its members.

About TDL Sprint Reviews

As a part of the Scrum methodology used by the TDL development team, TDL holds a public demonstration of software development work at the end of each development cycle, or “sprint.” These demonstrations, called Sprint Reviews, are open to anyone who wishes to attend and observe, either in-person or remotely, and the TDL encourages members to come and observe the progress being made on high-priority development efforts, including Vireo, the TDL Preservation Network, and the Texas Learning Object Repository.

Currently, the team is organizing work into one-week sprints, and a Sprint Review is held each week on Thursday at 2:30 PM. Those in Austin may attend in person at the TDL offices in Perry-Castañeda Library (PCL 1.402). Remote attendees are able to join via teleconference and Adobe Connect.
