Twentyseventeen update

https://make.wordpress.org/core/2016/10/07/twenty-seventeen-meeting-notes-oct-7-2016/ Agenda and sum up from the meeting.

Of special interest is this discussion on costum colors.

If your method is waterfall, you’d have phases like:

  • Design
  • Code
  • Tests
  • etc.

But in Twentyseventeen there was a theme, it was forked and two weeks before launch color options are discussed. The method is clearly iterative. Problems are solves when they arise.

Videos and animated gifs are used for visualization of ideas. Interesting process indeed.

Trello and Google Docs

Tomboy is not the best project manager on earth. I decided to use Trello as my kanban. It’s very basic:

  • Backlog
  • Doing
  • Wait
  • Done

Since you can link from Trello to Google Docs I made online versions of the project description and a sheet for the overall plan.

Research Database Improved

Ad URL field
Ad URL field to lit_noter

I found out that a URL field would be nice. So here’s the new and improved research database schema. During research I often meet online sources. In this way they are stored in one place.

Originally the database was an implementation of the “Liza Matrix” (named after Dr. Liza Castro’s talk on literature reviews). The original matrix was suited for a spreadsheet. But spreadsheets are not suited for notes.

I’ll name the fork “Per’s Review Schema“. Perhaps a timestamp would come in handy in the lit_noter table. That would open up for “visited the xxxx-xx-xx” type of output.

A JOIN of all rows was added. So the database is ready for queries.

select `litrev`.`lit_id` AS `lit_id`,`litrev`.`titel` AS `titel`,`litrev`.`forfatter` AS `forfatter`,`litrev`.`tidsskrift` AS `tidsskrift`,`litrev`.`udgiver` AS `udgiver`,`litrev`.`anno` AS `anno`,`litrev`.`researchsp` AS `researchsp`,`litrev`.`teorigrundlag` AS `teorigrundlag`,`litrev`.`metode` AS `metode`,`litrev`.`relevans` AS `relevans`,`litrev`.`anbefalinger` AS `anbefalinger`,`litrev`.`konklusion` AS `konklusion`,`litrev`.`url_projekt` AS `url_projekt`,`litrev`.`when` AS `when`,`lit_noter`.`lit_noter_id` AS `lit_noter_id`,`lit_noter`.`litrev_id` AS `litrev_id`,`lit_noter`.`side` AS `side`,`lit_noter`.`notat` AS `notat` from (`litrev` left join `lit_noter` on((`litrev`.`lit_id` = `lit_noter`.`litrev_id`)))

Cases ticking in

Read three reports today- I’m using the database for notes on cases. I wish access to more cases. On the other hand the literature review is somewhat time consuming. After 10 – 15 cases I guess that I’ll get the overall picture. Since I’m looking for qualitative rather than quantitative data it’s kinda ok-ish.
