Open Source in action: borrowing energy from the future to minimise technical debt.
LocalGov Drupal Alpha 1 released on schedule with lots of little improvements added in the 'final' sprint.
New features and improved UX.
DrupalCon Prague took 3 of our team out of the mix for a week but was a great opportunity to catch up with other LocalGov Drupal suppliers and promote it to new people, while the rest of us pushed forward with some new features.
Many of the team and council stakeholders were on holiday over August, so the team took the opportunity to perform some more user testing with available councils and made a number of user experiece improvements in sprint 9.
Brief summary of the work carried out in Sprint 8. Preparing for user testing, GInvite and Taxonomy terms.
A brief update on the goings on during Sprint 7 on the LocalGov Drupal Microsites project.
Belated sprint notes for sprint 6.
With a few of the Microsites project team away, and some social engagements to enjoy, we still made steady progress in Sprint 5: integrating findings from user testing, theme improvements and directories!
User testing of the early prototype is complete! In this sprint, we aimed to test the architecture and user experience of creating new microsites, assigning users, configuring the look and feel, and adding content to a page. With 14 users across 5 councils lined up, we invited Kayo from Telltale Research as well as our own Steph and Rae to help.
