Something New #26 – Write a Design Spec

Leave a comment

March 20, 2011 by Darlene McC

My part-time job involves working with the Sahana Software Foundation on the Agasti project’s Mayon branch, and on Friday Google announced that SSF has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2011! That, combined with a few other community building opportunities, means the Mayon project needs to fling the doors open and have something for all these hands to work on; and those of us closest to the project have had to step up and get some work done.

Saturday morning was spent writing design specs for new modules for Mayon. Β It’s probably not that exciting for anyone not interested in Emergency Management, HFOSS, or PHP programming, but I started by developing this spec template over the last few weeks and then fleshing it out: like this Volunteer Management spec.

Hopefully we’ll get a great batch of students for GSoC and a healthy injection of other volunteers this summer to help flesh out Mayon and make it a viable (free) planning tool for Emergency Managers all over the world.

Little sister, all grown up. How blessed am I to have been a part of your perfect day. To get to share in your joy, and thereby multiply it with everyone else who came to celebrate. . Stunning πŸ“Έ by @stephanie.mccauley . 20 years ago our parents met. But I think our 5 siblings are the ones who really made out on this deal. . . #love #positiveemotionproject #bride #bridesmaid #fallwedding #bonussister #littlesister #perfectday #sisters
We're so good at making relationships complicated- with others and with ourselves! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ But when I peel away the layers of pain, defensiveness, and unhelpful patterns I'm left with 3 truths: 1️⃣ We're all human (I thinkπŸ‘½) 2️⃣ We all have something to contribute. Unique combinations of skills and interests. Our passions and what we care about. They lead us to contributions that no one can make. And your world needs to what YOU can bring into it. 3️⃣ We all make mistakes - you. Me. Your boss. Your parents. Your kids. @msrachelhollis & @tonyrobbins . everybody. When you accept that you can forgive yourself and others for their human-ness. No one comes out perfect. We're all a work in progress. If you can accept this you can stop expecting perfection from yourself and others. Do these 3 ring true for you? Which of them do you struggle to accept and live? #growandchange #growthmindset #coaching #coachmentality #selfdevelopment #human #humanrace #acceptance #acceptyourself #weallmakemistakes
