The 20:51 sprint (Roadmap team-building: UK edition)

This week we hosted the DMPTool team to flesh out our plans for ‘roadmap’ – the joint codebase we’re building together based on DMPonline and DMPTool. The key focus was reviewing and prioritising tasks for an initial release.  Building on discussions from the earlier US visit, we confirmed what work was to be done and agreed to begin with some well-defined, short tasks as a test of our co-development procedures. With everyone taking leave over the coming weeks, the first sprint will start in mid-July at which point we’ll begin adding documentation to the Github repository.

DMPonline at OpenAIRE-COAR 2014

On 20th May 2014 I presented DMPonline at an OpenAIRE-COAR 2014 pre-conference workshop in Athens, Greece. The workshop took place in the context of the EC Horizon 2020 Data Pilot and with particular reference to the manual that the EC has provided for the pilot.

What I’d like to do here is outline some of the key points and to address some that were raised during the presentation and subsequently, and also provide links to relevant resources.

This new release marks a major progression in terms of usability. The evaluation showed that users had difficulties creating a mental model of how the tool worked. We’ve simplified the concepts behind the tool and responded to requests to shorten the DCC Checklist and ask funder questions directly instead.
