Shoreline: Sprint 9 (Feb. 19 - Mar. 3, 2020)

What was the goal of Sprint 9?

The goals for the sprint included:

  • Ingesting objects into Shoreline
  • Exploring the options for Shoreline architecture
  • Enabling local campus branding
  • Implementing local branding for the two campuses
  • Discussing how permanent IDs are handled

Much of the work continued to be exploratory during this sprint, with the exception of campus branding.

What is the milestone that this sprint is supporting?

This sprint is supporting the development of a minimum viable product (MVP), which will be the first public release of Shoreline.  The MVP includes features identified as “must have”, “should have”, and “nice to have”.  To satisfy the release of the MVP, all “must have” features are required to be operational.  

Accomplishments of Sprint 9:

The following goals of Sprint 9 were reached:

  • Determined how objects can be ingested into Shoreline in the short term; conversations will continue to determine how ingests are ultimately done.
  • Had discussions with Princeton and Cornell developers to better understand GeoBlacklight stack architecture options
  • Enabled local campus branding in Shoreline
  • Implemented local branding for UCSB in UCSB stage
  • Discussed permanent IDs and determined that Shoreline will use EZID to create registered IDs

Did we do everything we set out to accomplish?

Yes, for the most part.  Discussions were fruitful in determining how to proceed with ingesting objects into Shoreline, and so there is clearer direction now, even if we still cannot ingest objects yet.
