The core development team will at times arrange to involve the community in sprints. Community sprints will be announced via the Vireo User Group listserv.
During sprint weeks, the team expects that you attempt to clear your schedule enough to work on few tickets/tasks during the sprint. At the beginning of the sprint, you might be asked for your estimated availability (e.g. 20% time or 1 day each week, 40% time or 2 days each week, etc), which allows the team leads to steer you toward tickets achievable within your available time. You may also specify your exact availability in the signup form provided before the sprint.
You will be expected to manage your own work schedule, attend minimal meetings & report your ongoing progress.
You will be expected to have some existing knowledge of and proactive in learning any new Vireo concepts. While you are more than welcome to use this Sprint as a learning experience, we will not have any formalized training/workshops during the Sprint itself.
You will be expected to be proactive in asking for help or asking questions if you get stuck. Ongoing support will be available on Slack (#vireo-oss-community) from Sprint Coaches and other participants.
Note that Vireo is built using Texas A&M's web application framework, Weaver: https://github.com/TAMULib/Weaver-UI-Core and https://github.com/TAMULib/Weaver-Webservice-Core
If you are working on development tasks you may follow the direct deployment proscribed in the README or you use https://github.com/TexasDigitalLibrary/Vireo4VagrantAnsibleDeploy to build vireo4 within a virtual machine. The latter option will require the installation of Vagrant, VirtualBox, and Ansible.
Sprint coaches should be available during both sprint weeks for help getting up to speed / answering questions / debugging issues / pair programming requests, etc.
