Project Goals

Create a notepad-like app in Ember with full CRUD functionality.

Developers will not have commit rights to the master branch. All changes must be made through pull requests that will be reviewed by instructors and merged into master when approved.

Requirements to Merge PR

One of the primary goals of this project is to master work flow using small, concise pull requests. Each PR should follow the following guidelines.

  • While working on feature A, create a new branch called feature-a
  • When ready to merge to master, submit a PR for feature A
  • There should be no excessive code NOT related to feature A in said PR.
  • Feature A will be merged into master

Often, you’ll be waiting for feature-A to be merged in but will want to continue working on feature-B. The process for that looks like this:

  • Feature B depends on the work you did for feature A.
  • The PR for feature A has not been merged in, but you want to continue to make progress
  • Create a new branch wip-feature-b, branched from feature-a.
  • Work on feature B
  • Wait for feature A to be merged into master
  • Upon successful merge, create a new branch called feature-b branched from master.
  • The feature-b branch will now have feature A’s code since it was merged into master.
  • Use git cherry-pick <commitSHA> (docs) to pull in ONLY the commits you made in wip-feature-b that apply to the feature B situation
  • Submit a PR for feature B with the feature-b branch

Project success will be based primarily on pull-request quality, and secondarily on the level of project completion.

Pull Request Quality

4 - All pull requests are thoroughly written. All sections of each pull request have been consciously documented, and the amount of code being reviewed in each pull request is explicitly related to the given issue.
3 - Most pull requests are thoroughly written. Some sections are missing valuable information, and more than 1 pull request has changes to the code that do not apply to the given issue.
2 - Few pull requests have the necessary information to determine what is being reviewed. Submitted code is inconsistent with the target issue, student struggles to separate concerns.
1 - No to little effort made to create effective pull requests.
0 - What are pull requests.

Project Completion

4 - All issues were successfully closed
3 - 10+ Issues were successfully closed
2 - 5-10 Issues were successfully closed
1 - 5 or fewer issues were closed
0 - No attempt was made to complete this project.
