Hello Community Members,
Welcome to our second edition of Showcase Shorts.
We held our first Maintenance & Planning Sprint at the end of October. Maintenance & Planning Sprints are dedicated to making time to do some of the tasks one never quite finds time to do during feature development sprints but that are essential to maintaining a clean code base!
We are also currently in code freeze for Moodle LMS 4.1 and actively working through our QA cycle. We are always keen for help with this process so if you’d like to get involved, please do!
For these reasons, we don’t have a lot of new development to share with you in this edition of Showcase Shorts but there is still a ton of work going on, particularly on integrations.
We also used this time to prepare for the start of our next development cycle (12 weeks) by engaging with stakeholders, reviewing our backlogs and confirming our priorities for the increment ahead. For a sneak peak into this process, take a look at:
1) How we engage with our Partners to prioritise our development of Moodle Workplace.
2) Some of the scoping and design activities we completed in preparation for Moodle LMS 4.2.
3) An overview of the planning sessions we held to prepare for our next phase of development on MoodleCloud.
We also used the sprint to progress some of our research initiatives.
Our LMS Messaging research findings have been shared on the UX Community Forum. If you didn’t see the post, please check it out now.
And we started processing the results from our annual MoodleCloud Market Research activity, with some interesting findings coming through about the type of users who use our product.
We also made great progress towards the release of the Developer Edition of MoodleNet later this year.
But the big news for this sprint was that we were getting ready to launch our new look moodle.org which we really hope you are enjoying. We thought you might like taking a little look at the final steps we took to get to this point.
We hope you enjoyed this quick update.
Until next sprint!
