Kahoot standards

  1. Use the Grouper Training folder
  2. For courses, use a section folder (e.g. 101)
  3. For quizzes, name with this convention: GTE 101.1: Grouper Basics
  4. Do not list answers in slides
  5. Do keep the questions in slides (in case Kahoot goes away)
  6. Its not clear how to mute Kahoot.  Right click on tab in browser and "mute site" e.g. in chrome
  7. During the training, trainers should not take the quiz, as it will skew the results

Hands on copy/paste standards

  1. For a course, make a hands on wiki under this page
  2. Each thing to copy paste should be in a code block
  3. For each slide that has something to copy/paste, link the first word to that course's copy/paste wiki

GTE development

Google doc with to do's:

The current working branch for November 2019 training is "201911".

This branch is automatically built on every commit and pushed to dockerhub, with the branch name appended to the image tags.

To work on updates:

  1. create a feature branch off of 201911 (eg. 201911-201-updates).
  2. update ./gte line 12 with your branch name (eg. replace "201911" with "201911-201-updates").
  3. make local chances to exercises and content
  4. run ./ in whatever ex### directory you are working in. this will create docker images based on your branch name
  5. run ./gte 201.1.1 (this will start the correct local version based on your branch name and link to rabbitmq)
  6. test/review changes at https://localhost:8443/grouper
  7. push local commits/branch to github
  8. Merge changes into needed branch when completed.
    1. Log into github and go to "Branches"
    2. Choose "New pull request" on your feature branch
    3. Make sure to update base: master to base: 201911
    4. Add comment and choose "Create pull request" underneath comment section
    5. Choose "Merge pull request"
    6. Choose "Confirm Merge"
    7. Choose "Delete Branch" if done with feature branch.

Developer flow looks like this:

  1. make local changes
  2. ./ - build local docker images with tags based on branch name
  3. docker ps - check to see what's running.
  4. docker stop 201.1.1 - stop an image
  5. ./gte 201.1.1 - start an image
  6. test/review changes at https://localhost:8443/grouper
  7. repeat.
docker restart rabbitmq
./gte 101.1.1
$ docker logs 101.1.1 to bide the time.
$ ./gte-shell 101.1.1


docker ps
docker stop imageId
