New Release: Sprint 4: Export to PPT

With the conclusion of Sprint 4, the first major work package (“Epic” in Scrum language) is coming to completion, Export to PPT. In a multi-threaded package of work different members of the team have:

  • designed PowerPoint master slides
  • developed Python code to iteratively work through the various processes involved in transforming Debrief screen pixels into MS PowerPoint entities
  • Design a tidy, sensible UX that leads the user through the export process
  • Transform the working Python into Java, then wrap that code in unit and integration tests
  • Develop the new UI elements, and integrate the new Java export code

The implementation has 1/2 dozen minor features to be added/refined, which will slip the final release into next week – but a screencast of the working implementation is shown below:

Ian Mayo (from Deep Blue C Technologies) has been developing and maintaining Debrief since 1995, and helping users perform effective analysis and deliver persuasive results.
