What’s going well?
For this update, I wanted to switch gears and focus more on the individual components as we refactor them to be better/faster. The new site is made up of the following areas with status indicated next to them.
|Dashboard||RED||0%||Last thing we’ll do|
|Call List||GREEN||100%||In testing|
|Calendar||GREEN||80%||Almost done, working on integration, shared views|
|Groups||GREEN||100%||Conversion postponed, integration completed, In testing|
|Campaigns||YELLOW||20%||Conversion postponed, integration started|
|Contacts||YELLOW||40%||Working on all the detail pages|
|Email Service||RED||0%||Needs review|
Overall, the conversion back to server side code is going well. We haven’t run into any roadblocks yet. It’s really been a matter of just churning out code. I think by the end of this week, we should have 60-75% of this work done, as company and account are not large components to rewrite, and campaigns is a integration, not a rewrite.
What could be better?
On Thursday, we unexpectedly lost a developer for this project. This meant we had to look back at our feedback and determine which UI elements were going to get the “rewrite for fast access” treatment and which UI we were just going to have to port over till later. The areas owned by the “no longer with us” developer were not UI components that require super fast access, so we’re just porting that code over now as is. This is in groups and campaigns. Fortunately, the loss does not impact our schedule at this point; it just delays rewrites of less critical UI elements.
