Development Team Risks and Concerns

Reduction in Team Velocity
Developer illness and family emergencies have increased the amount of developer PTO used this Sprint and the resource count for this Sprint has been reduced. Onboarding of two new developers is reducing the speed at which developers are able to provide solutions to bugs or develop new features. Setup of FCC’s own cloud-based Jira to provide easier status reporting and roadmaps has reduced development management resources

Lack of clarity on current Paywall Needs
Unclear on what is required of the development team for design when the vendors (managed by IT) are performing the engineering work that is needed outside of implementing Piano code on CUE websites.

Lack of availability for Drupal Support
Versions of open source software needed to set up a local development environment are no longer available. Currently, only 2 developers have working local environments, which will slow any changes needed or issue resolution for Drupal News websites.
