Core Apps Burndown: Ramping up for success

Today I thought we'd take a break from the testing all the things series to take a look at what we're doing, how far we've come, and most importantly, where we need to get to.

The core apps project has come a long way since it's inception at the beginning of this cycle. So as the development started maturing, testing was the natural step for me to get involved and check out what the apps had to offer. With that in mind, let's look at the burndown chart for the core apps shall we?

Can you tell where the tests were added?

So even as the work items has increased from adding things like tests, this month the community have been working hard at finishing work items and bringing us back to the trendline. See that nice driving downwards the last couple weeks? Excellent job! Let's get down to that trendline!

From the quality side, we've had several people come forward, learn about autopilot and the core apps and then get a merge in. A special thanks to Carla Sella, Daniel Kessel, Michael Spencer, Adrian Goodyer, Riccardo Padovani and Arturas Norkus for your contributions last week to core apps projects. Well done, and I look forward to seeing and merging more of your work!

For those of you still working on getting commits in, or sitting on the sidelines, let me help! You can be a part of this effort! There's still more work to do, and the entire community around core apps would appreciate your help. Hack on an app, a testcase, wherever your skills and interests lie. For autopilot tests specifically, check out this recipe on and watch this video.

I look forward to merging your work!
