Weekly Update 05/10/2007 - Thesis Consolidation

Today, Hendy and I resumed our weekly meeting with our surrogate supervisor, Alan Fekete. While Professor Jon Patrick is away, we have been in touch through email and online entries onto the TRAC.

During the meeting, I gave an update on my thesis progress. I have almost completed the foundations of the workflow builder. There are minor revisions and testing that needs to be done in order to make the workflow builder functional. I will provide the list of updates in a later entry. According to the agile process, I have completed the first four iterations and up to the fifth iteration.

Upon the outcomes of the meeting, Alan has advised us to finalise the core fundamentals of the thesis and begin the write up. This will involve revising the thesis draft (marks have yet to be released, however, our supervisors have given us feedback on them) , adding and correcting the draft and then documenting the second half of the semester. Roughly additions to the draft thesis will be:
  • Documentation of the software methodology/model used
  • Documentation of architecture
  • Documenting the results
  • Documenting possible extensions (future work)
  • Writing up a conclusion
It will take roughly 1-2 weeks (depending on the load of my other subjects) to write up these sections.
