Overview

Our first community sprint featured nine developers from five Samvera Partner Institutions coming together to spend a week working toward the creation of a minimum viable product. The current goal of the Valkyrie working group remains to demonstrate a MVP at SamveraConnect 2017.

As the initial sprint for the working group the goals for this sprint were quite broad due to multiple areas of the code base needing attention. The goals included:-

  • Improvement of documentation, specifically YARDoc, and testing

...

  • Creation of an ActiveFedora Storage Adapter

...

  • Proof of concept for file characterization

...

  • Derivative creation support for multiple image types

...

  • Standardized around use of UTC for all `DateTimes` within the codebase

...

  • Fixity Checking within Valkyrie

...

  • Creation of a File Characterization Proof of Concept

Results

The working group was able to accomplish the majority of the tasks set out during the sprint planning. It was actually a pleasant surprise how few direct conflicts there were despite having so many devs operating on the same code base and across multiple time zones. Minimal time was spent dealing with merge conflicts and other issues compared to other Samvera Community sprints of similar size.
