This project plan is a DRAFT, and will be used for the Fluid UX Team's planning exercises. The tasks which are coming up soon are defined in a more granular fashion than those far in the future.

 Fluid 0.1 Release

  • Prepare drag-and-drop design pattern for Fluid 1.0 release
    • Determine where pattern will live (on a temporary basis, until a pattern library is started)
    • Add introductory text to front page of DP Library
    • Add examples of implementations in non-Fluid applications
    • Add examples of implementations in Sakai
    • Add examples of implementations in uPortal, Moodle (if possible)
    • determine whether we have all needed DP sections by looking at other DP libraries

Add tasks to the List. Assign yourself to work and mark when complete.

General Planning

  • Create meeting/working group plan
  • Create project communications plan (for members interested in and impacted by the project, but not part of a working group)
  • Determine what we think the goals of the project are in the current context (see Questions for the Group to Consider (preliminary) for some ideas)
    • Determine who we currently think is the target audience of the project
    • Create persona hypothesis about the audience(s) of the project
    • Create hypothesis about link to Fluid Design Handbook, Component Library
    • Determine how Fluid Design Patterns Library will work with other Design Patterns libraries (e.g. Sakai DP Library)
  • Create Scope statement for the project

Should Accessibility for a feature be it's own "pattern" or part of the component?

User Needs Assessment

  • Observe users of the Design Patterns Library (& likely the Design Handbook & Component Library) as they do work which uses it
    • Plan for this to occur (at least) at uCamp & Sakai Conference (? Probably at Sakai uCamp they would have access to that DP library)
      • Determine activity to observe
        • Coordinate with Daphne who is coming up with ideas for where re-orderer could be implemented
      • Create Focus Structure document on what to look for in observations
    • Do observations
      • Determine how design patterns are used by component implementors
      • Determine what additional context is needed beyond the design pattern in order to properly implement the component
    • Create personas & scenarios for site/application based on user observations
  • Revisit goals and scope statement based on research

System Design

  • Design system to allow target audiences to achieve their goals
    • Determine whether we can reuse any Oracle materials/infrastructure
    • Determine whether we can reuse UC Berkeley's Design Patterns Library infrastructure (PHP or Drupal version)
    • Determine whether we can reuse materials from other design patterns libraries
    • Gather existing content
    • Determine content which must still be created
    • Design information architecture
    • Determine what technology will be used to present information

Add tasks to the List. Assign yourself to work and mark when complete.

Implementation

  • Build system/website to hold Design Pattern Library/Design Handbook
    • Are the components presented in this system somehow?
    • Should/can we add "interactions" to our patterns (they are dynamic not static)
  • Create content
    • Create additional design patterns to populate library
      • Determine how the Sakai Design Patterns library will interact with or be part of the Fluid library
    • Determine whether we'd like to create patterns which do not directly relate to Fluid components

Project Plan Draft from Barbara

Activity

Task & Sub-task Work Breakdowns

Priority

Date Needed

Organize DP Team

  •  Select Coordinator
  • Look for Volunteers
    • Send email to communities to request volunteers
    • Fluid members who are interested
  • Determine OSDP meetings
    • How often
    • What day and time
  • How to work with partner communities (Sakai, uPortal, etc)

 

 

Create OSDP Library

  • Establish a timeline for completing below tasks to create the initial OSDP library.
    • The library will continue as a work in progress but initial construction needs a timeline.
    • Establish who will do what parts of above list and when each should be completed by.
    • Each steptask must be prioritized so the work can progress.
  • Create accounts for Fluid OSDP members who will be working on the library and adding patterns
  • Send out to Fluid-work and other mailing lists progress reports on the library and its creation.
  • Encourage volunteers to help with OSDP work.
  • Research how screen shots from commercial web sites should be included "legally" in the Fluid OSDP. 
    • Are there legal issues? 
    • How best to show screen shots? 
    • Can we include TMs and copyrights? 
    • What are other pattern libraries doing?** Add Fluid patterns already created
      • Drag and Drop
      • Reorderer
      • Pager
    • If a pattern that Fluid needs already exists in another "partner" community library like Sakai, link to it.  Add a Fluid example.
    • Fluid Patterns should have at least one Fluid example screen shot. 
      • If the pattern is also for another community like Sakai then add a Sakai screen shot as well.*** For Fluid patterns, make the Fluid screen shot larger and the first or most prominent one shown.  Show the other community screen shots smaller but on the same "page".
    • Use tagging to create "views" into the Fluid OSDP.  Tags for each community such as Sakai or uPortal would allow someone from those communities to find patterns relevant to their work.
    • Create a "look and feel" for the Fluid OSDP
    • Create tutorial for how to add a pattern to the library for new comers
    • Include coding examples later for each pattern in Fluid library to help developers.
      • The library should include links components, code examples, mark-up primitives, HTML/CSS "templates" wherever possible.
    • Have small team of people look through libraries like Yahoo patterns or Berkeley Library and see if there's patterns they have we want to link to. 
      • Create links into these libraries for those patterns we feel are relevant to our OSDP
      • Create Fluid screen shots illustrating those patterns. | | |
