[TECH ED] Check module success criteria πŸ”— Clone

https://curriculum.codeyourfuture.io/databases/success/

Why are we doing this?

πŸ”‘ The most important thing is that you are secure in your understanding.

At the end of the course, we will expect you to build novel applications using your understanding. If you cannot build things, we cannot put you forward for jobs. It is in your personal interest to make sure you have properly understood this module.

To progress to the next module you need to meet the success criteria for this module. How will you as a cohort meet the module success criteria? Discuss it in your class channel and make a plan together.

πŸ§‘πŸΏβ€πŸŽ€ good strategies

  • asking volunteers to review your code
  • helping each other with coursework blockers
  • arranging midweek study sessions
  • using Saturday time to review code and cohort tracker

πŸ™…πŸΏ bad strategies

  • opening empty PRs
  • copying and pasting
  • breaking the Trainee Agreement
  • mistaking the measure for the target

[TECH ED] Prepare for Final Projects πŸ”— Clone

https://syllabus.codeyourfuture.io/

Why are we doing this?

If you want to graduate, you’ve got to join a cross functional Agile team building a full stack web application over four weeks.

Here’s the entry and exit criteria

To prepare:

  1. Read the syllabus! What does it tell you about Final Projects?
  2. Grab the starter kit and get a version running on render (there are guides on the syllabus to help you, and there’s a wiki on the starter kit with all the common problems.)
  3. Attend a Merge Conflicts workshop
  4. Read up on small scoped feature branching
  5. Take a look at some successful Final Projects; look at their project boards and especially notice velocity – you should be opening a small PR at least once a day during final projects, not one a week.

[TECH ED] E-Commerce API πŸ”— Clone

https://github.com/CodeYourFuture/Module-Databases/tree/main/E-Commerce-API

Why are we doing this?

Now you understand your database, how will this change how you design your API?

You should write this app in TDD style. This project will help you understand how to do this. The user stories are re-expressed as acceptance criteria, and then the acceptance criteria is re-expressed as tests. Look in the /tests folder to see the example.

When you go to Final Projects, you will save yourself a lot of time by writing your API in this way. You will also find it much easier to share the work, as each acceptance criteria could be met by a different team member, using the feature branch workflow.

Quality check!

In this project, you must write the test first.

It’s better to turn in a smaller set of user stories than to turn in untested features.

If you’re running out of time, scope down your application rather than commit untested code. Cut your scope, not your quality. Include a list of the stories you did, and didn’t, get to in your PR message.

Maximum time in hours

How to get help

Share your blockers in your class channel. Use the opportunity to refine your skill in Asking Questions like a developer.

If you’re struggling with the feature branch workflow, you won’t be alone. There are workshops available – do one together in class.

How to submit

  1. Fork to your Github account.
  2. Make a new branch named E-Commerce-API
  3. For each user story, make a feature branch like this feature/1-list-all-products
  4. Complete your user story, make sure the test is passing, then merge into your E-Commerce-API branch
  5. When you are ready, open a PR to the CYF repo, following the instructions in the PR template.
gitGraph
    commit id: "e-commerce-api"
    branch e-commerce-api
    branch feature/1-list-all-products
    commit id: "assert api should return list"
    commit id: "make api return list"
    checkout e-commerce-api
    merge feature/1-list-all-products
    branch feature/2-filter-product-list
    commit id: "assert api should filter list"
    commit id: "make api filter list"
    commit id: "check query works"
    checkout e-commerce-api
    merge feature/2-filter-product-list
