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 13, at 2:30 PM.
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. (Read more about Scrum in the TDL Wiki.)
Currently, the team is organizing work into one-week sprints, so a Sprint Review will be 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 will be able to join via teleconference and Adobe Connect.
