Open Source with OPF: Software Development Best Practice

29th Apr 2013 : 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

This webinar outlines a set of simple steps that together provide a light, pragmatic, and consistent methodology for open source software development. Developers will learn how to ensure their software is used and tested as quickly as possible. Practitioners will find out how they can get help improve the quality of OPF Software projects, and influence future developments. The session DOES NOT cover techie issues such as unit testing or code comments, although it will cover continuous integration. The session DOES cover the OPF’s guidelines for use of online services such as GitHub, Travis-CI, and BinTray.

Learning Outcomes (by the end of the session attendees will be able to:)

  • Describe the OPF software projects lifecycle

  • Ensure that software is described and documented so others can find it, install it, and test it.

  • Use the Travis Continuous Integration service

  • Use GitHub to version software for release

  • Use GitHub Issues to report bugs, and suggests improvements.
