Timetable and Build Cycles

  • How much development time is there between now and DC 2?

    • Build 9 5/31 - 7/8 Week 5: 6/27 - 7/1

    • Build 10 7/11 - 8/19

    • Build 11 8/22 - 9/30 Checkup 3

    • Build 12 10/3 - 11/10

    • Build 13 11/14 - 12/23 Freeze/test/bug fix

  • Who is available and what are they working on?

    • Jim Chiang Likelihood, Obs/Orb Sim, IRFs, and more

    • Navid Golpayegani Installers

    • Masa Hirayama Pulsar Tools, Databases, file formats

    • James Peachey Pulsar Tools, GRB Tools, infrastructure

    • Aymeric Sauvegeon Catalog Tools

  • Many others are contributing, but these are the core developers who can or do spend a large fraction of their time on Science Tools.

  • In summary, there are roughly three builds and five developers to get everything done.


What needs doing
What Needs Doing?

  • Currently planned development in major tool areas, as discussed earlier.

  • Writing user level documentation.

  • Handling support issues.

    • Installation/runtime environment

    • Windows support

  • What else?

    • Changes to current Science Tool interfaces?

      • Are parameters sensible?

      • Can we simplify interfaces by making tools smarter?

    • Changes to Science Tool functionality?

      • New IRFs

      • Joint fits for LAT/GBM data

    • New Science Tools?

      • Temporal burst profile tool

      • IRFs visualization

      • Canonical Root-FITS converter


What are our priorities
What Are Our Priorities?

  • Three builds * five developers / (planned development + bug fixes + documentation + checkup 3 + Windows support + installer + science + other responsibilities) = Not a whole lot of time or resources for new projects!

  • Goal of this session: priority queue of Science Tools development projects, with a view toward a successful “extended” checkup 3 and successful DC 2!
