th1ahi replaceafill.17:29
replaceafillhey th1a17:29
th1aLooking over Fran's email.17:31
th1aWere you already storing the teacher/section automatically?17:31
replaceafilli'm replying to it17:31
replaceafillthere was a problem with that blueprint17:32
*** replaceafill has quit IRC17:33
*** replaceafill has joined #schooltool17:33
replaceafillsorry th1a got disconnected17:34
replaceafillelectricity is unstable since yesterday17:34
replaceafillso i was saying17:34
replaceafillthe behaviour blueprint had a problem17:34
replaceafilli think i estimated those first17:34
replaceafilland i didn't write in my own words what we were going to do17:34
replaceafilland there's just a back and forth conversation between you and Fran17:35
replaceafill"this should do it", "yeah but we will need this at some point", "yeah but this is simpler" etc17:35
replaceafillso i kept it simple17:36
th1abtw, I do think we should consolidate the conversations on there a bit more aggressively.17:36
replaceafilladding those two fields shouldn't be a problem17:36
replaceafillwhat do you mean??17:36
replaceafillleave chat out of blueprints?17:36
th1aI mean, ideally the whiteboard at the end is the spec, not a conversation.17:37
replaceafilli guess a good rule should be17:37
replaceafillwhen writing the estimate, erase everything17:37
replaceafilland just leave the spect17:37
th1aOr if it seems important, move the conversation below the actual spec.17:38
replaceafilland post deployment questions can become TODOs17:38
replaceafillas i've been converting some17:38
replaceafillbut in all this mess of iteration, blueprints have definitely helped me17:39
replaceafillso now17:39
replaceafilli'm trying to explain Fran this:17:39
replaceafillthe difference between peas and isli pilots17:39
th1aBlueprints are definitely an improvement.17:40
replaceafillis that when she landed the data model usually didn't have to be modified17:40
replaceafillmodified as in "changing existing pieces"17:40
replaceafillmostly modified as in "adding additional components"17:40
replaceafillchanging existing pieces usually means evolution scripts17:40
replaceafillbut in this case17:40
replaceafillclasses are being moved from one project to the other17:41
replaceafillfrom peas to ark17:41
replaceafillfor example17:41
replaceafilland that will break peas once we move it to use current ark17:41
replaceafillsame with isli17:41
th1aOK, so...17:42
replaceafilland in the past17:42
replaceafillshe didn't see any of this17:42
th1aIs this in reference to the discussion about incompatible changes?17:42
replaceafillbecause when it was happening17:42
replaceafillonly happened in the testing instances17:43
replaceafillthat *i* was taking care of17:43
th1aDo you want to do a hangout?17:43
th1aLet me know when you are ready.17:43
