Please fill in actual activity for Last Month (September) and intended activity for This Month (October) for projects you are responsible for. For reference, the intended activity recorded for September is included where an entry had been made (it is considered unhelpful to alter this to match what actual activity was :). It is acceptable to change devproj milestones as part of this process, however if you do please indicate that you have done so below, for example by adding a Change of Plan bullet point, so that the meeting is alerted to the changes.

  • Revisit Account Management
    • September: No major activity
    • Last Month: Minimal new development, mostly operational/minor development.
    • This Month: Decide whether we wait for our dependencies (#164 (afs work), #188 (lifecycle)) or conclude project. Factor in sxw availability/toby holiday.

  • School Database Revamp
    • September: If not fighting fires then as for August.
    • Last Month: Not much (although still over 600 repository commits) due to pressure from ITO deployment. Some improvements to the portal framework (automatic meta data generation and parallelisation) and schema generation. A framework for mailing list generation added to the portal that greatly simplifies all reports producing mailing lists (in comparison to the 2g and 2g/3g ones they replace). Fixes for IGS desk allocation (requiring an implementation of temporal triggers). A client issue finally addressed in order to correctly support ITO desktops for group allocation. Some server insert related bugs fixed. Support for the HTBN process (which should really have been a project in its own right).
    • This Month: There is unlikely to be much time available but where there is it should still be focused on sorting remaining minor server bugs (sequence related) and completing client keyboard navigation.

    • Last Month: Course desktop completed for immediate needs, more work is required for assessment and mark entry. All first tranche reports completed bar one. ITO went live with Theon. The old database is now effectively moribund for "live" student data (except for completion of last session PGT to BoE and UG resists). All teaching related mailing lists and other systems data (such as for submit) converted to be driven from Theon 3g.
    • This Month: Complete course desktop (although holidays may interfere). Complete last first tranche report. Implement Webmark forms for mark return.
