Pet project – what In What time

by daniel on June 16, 2009


Timeline:

  1. Start of project – June 1st 2009.
  2. Deployment – Sept 1st 2009.


Actual available time: 3 months – 12 weeks.

Since a week is a easy to manage time frame, the work is divided into specific work items:


Item

Content

Duration

(weeks)

User perspective design

Information

Flow

User actions

1

Backend logic

DB design

Flow design

Information model

2

URL logic

Pages flow

relationships

0.5

Infrastructure coding

DB coding

DB interface coding


1

Main page coding

Menus

Links


2

Table presentation coding

Presentation table

Editing table

2

Security

Logic

Cookies

Enforcement

2

Testing

Developer testing

End user testing

4

Total


14.5



Due to the limited timeframe, only a subset of the application can be developed, forcing stepped development. For stepped development, grouping functionality allows concentrating on specific features without having to skimp all over the place.


As first step of the project, only three features need to be developed:

  1. database
  2. Menus and URLs
  3. main table display



Having these 3 features allow internal deployment, using a local computer and the parents reading the information from a monitor.


So the plan now is:


Item

Content

Duration

Design

Data model

Urls

Site flow

2 weeks

Database

Table creation

SQL queries creation

1 week

Main Page

Header

Footer

Menus

Links (static)

2 weeks

Main table

Calendar

Main entry table

Main display table

2 weeks

Testing

With sample or real data

2 weeks

Total


9 weeks


Having 14 weeks, this is doable, even with some delays added.


Now comes the hard part, actually making it.
