Kohacon14 Day 1 – Being a citizen : Hints for developing a feature

Jared presented remotely from New York giving hints about how to best get a feature accepted into Koha

  • Project scoping – clear definition, buy in from stakeholders, clear communication
  • Project design – Minimal impact on other areas, measurable milestones, consideration of other ongoing projects
  • Development process – Public code (release early), ask for input early , follow guidelines and best practises
  • Testing – Help people understand and convince them they should care, good faith in testing developments, egoless response to feedback
  • Maintenance – Design something others will use, Expect to maintain site specific features yourself
