Achievements in Last Period

  • Non-development continued
  • New storage infrastructure tested
  • Load testing for new varnish service completed
  • Theming work continued

Issues

  • The new storage solution was implemented later than planned. Effort required to test and resolve issues on this impacted on testing and reviewing the Theming changes delivered by Headscape. Combined with scheduling difficulties for Headscape. 
  • One impact of not progressing Theming was postponing the Varnish deployment until after the change freeze.

  • Start and complete development iteration 13
  • Deploy Varnish to LIVE on 22/09/14
  • Make UWP Beta site available through Varnish
