Iteration 3

Overview

Iteration 3 Goal

In this iteration, you want to aim for completing all or most of your "must have" features. You want to make sure that by the end of this iteration your app is distinguished from other similar apps out there.

caution

Your app must definitely be more than a simple CRUD app by the end of iteration 3.

These are the deadlines for this iteration.

Retrospective for iteration 2

You must write a Retrospective for iteration 2. The retrospective is an opportunity for your team to inspect itself and create a plan for improvements to be enacted during the next iteration. Review what you had done in iteration 2; note things that you have and have not delivered, note the challenges you had, and reflect on how you shall proceed in the next iteration to do a better job. There is not specific format to the retrospective document and no minumin and/or requirements on its length, format etc. It is just meant to reflect on iteration 2 and use it to improve your next iterations. Write this in a file named retrospective_it2.md and upload it under docs folder in your group repo.

Update Requirement Specification Document

You only need to update the Requirement Specification Document if you want to make any changes to the specification of your proposed software project. That is, you can leave it as is, if you are happy with it.

Update Class Diagram

If there has been been any changes to your desgin since last iteration, make sure to update your class diagram to reflect the latest design of your software. Upload a new class diagram picture to the docs folder. Make sure to include it3 in the file name(s) e.g. it3_class_diagram1.png

tip

Remember that your class diagram must be kept updated at all times. (i.e. iterations)

Project Planning: Giuthub Project Board

Similar to what you did in iteration 1 and 2, create three columns "It3-To Do" with preset To do, "It3-In Progress" with preset In Progress, and "It3-Done" with preset Done. You will need to keep the colmuns updated as you develop your app further. List all your to do tasks extracted from the user stories you plan to finish for iteration 3 under the "It3-To Do" column. When you start working on a task, move it under the "It3-In Progress" column, and when it is completed list it under the "It3-Done" column.

tip

Ideally, you do not have any unfinished tasks from iteration 1 and 2. But, if there are unfinihsed tasks, move them over to the it3 columns and aim to get them done in this iteration.

caution

In this iteration, it is expected that you will pick up even more speed and accomplish most (if not all) must have features.

Final Deliverable

At the end of iteration 3, you must deliver a software that does what you have listed in the project backlog for iteration 3.

You must always keep your group repository updated with the latest changes; we will consider your last commit by Tue, Nov 3rd, 11:00 PM as your submission.

caution

By the end of iteration 3, you must make sure you have a runnable software; that is we must be able to run your app, test its new features and verify your progress compared to iteration 1 and 2.

caution

Do not forget to update you project's README.md based on your progress/updates in iteration 3.

Individual Contribution Report

Each member in the team must write a short individual report. This must be done individually, hence the name individual report!; you may not work on this together. This does not have to be long and there are no hard requirements on the format, length, content etc. of this document. However, you should use this to 1) reflect on your own individual performance in iteration 2, and 2) mention the names of any particular member(s) who you think excelled in the last iteration.

info

This should not be the case hopefully, but if you have major concerns about performance of any other member(s) i.e. someone who is not putting in the necessary effort/time, is not committed to the team's mission etc., make a mention of it in your individual report. We will check these individual reports and we will take necessary actions if needed. Submit your individual report to your personal repo in the jhu-oose organization in a file named it3_individual_report.md.

submit individual report to your private repo

We have provisioned you a personal repo at the begining of the semester and you must still have access to it (i.e. the repo you used to submit HW1). This is different from your project/team repo that you use to submit your homeworks and other iteration deliverables. Submit the individual report to your private repo, not the team repo!
