Sprint 41 - December 13, 2013

Sprint planning on Friday the 13th. What could possibly go wrong? Well...nothing. It was a swell sprint planning session. The team closed out ALL of the stories plus some additional non-spooky bugs.


The team spent a long time talking about how Avalon and LTIs should interact. A huge priority for our next release is to be able to have automated group management and using LTIs within our course management systems will help us to fulfill that use case. We've got the wireframes, next sprint we will have the code! Also in the sprint, we were able to embed simple videos into webpages focusing on just supporting public domain video. The team made this look easy! The other big story in the sprint was to restrict access to content located in the local dropbox. Now each new collection gets its own sub-directory in the dropbox and only members of that collection can access/view those files. Avalon creates the sub-directories and then alerts the local system administrators that permissions need to be set for that dropbox folder.  No collection, no dropbox is our new mantra. 


If you are planning on having a sprint viewing party on 12/27, I am sorry to tell you that the next sprint is going to be a long one. We won't have sprint planning until 1/10.
