Day 2 Group Retrospective

We split up into 3 sets of pairs (actually 2 pairs and a triple) to focus on three tasks:

  • An acceptance testing framework (using the DOM)
  • Conversion of data from word doc into usable stuff
  • Developing an initial page that displays the case information

After spending the time to do the development, here’s where we stand:

  • Acceptance testing — needs refactoring, approximates Brian’s test (posted earlier)
  • Data conversion — needs some hand tweaking
  • CGI — investigated alternatives, settled with thin GUI (CGI library)

Other retrospective stuff:

  • The acceptance test triple was able to do lots of acceptance testing without “real” code
  • Morning discussion (of acceptance testing approaches) meant less stories done
