music-notesOn the third day of Summer School we learned about project management

I know that most of the students had an element of this in their courses but I’m not a student so for me it was such a treat! Because not only is this a skill you need for work but it is something that you can apply to life as well. We learned how to create structure with the Agile Scrum methodology.

  1. Creating a Product Backlog is the listing of all your tasks in order of priority. A task has 3 aspects; what needs to be done, who needs to do it, how long will it take.
  2. A Sprint Backlog is then created based on the timeline of the tasks and focuses for anything between 1-4 weeks with daily scrums.
  3. Sprint is made up of scrums. A scrum is a process framework which caters for change, allowing for new tasks to be added if needed. Its’ aspects are; To do, In progress, Resolved (test) and Close. Tasks can be sent back to the responsible person by the tester if changes need to be made.
  4. Sprint review

Because different people, in different locations can upload their code to a shared project, they can replace code added before them if they do not first check and merge. This is best practice. immedia has put in a buffer and utilize bitbucket so that if someone did forget to merge, the piece of code can be recovered.

immedia uses Jira to view and track the progress on a project. Applications are then distributed and shared on hockey app.
