Our code sprint at the end of June resulted in an abundance of tickets for outstanding development on existing systems and projected improvements to checkout to accommodate the payment system. Several of these include UI mock-ups provided by Bojhan for us to work towards. We also planned out the payment implementation as much as possible, considering different payment workflows (CC on site, hosted payment, hosted checkout, etc.) and payment information security. There were also certain items that we tabled for future discussion, like the implementation of shipping and taxes.
Tangibly, this discussion and development boils down to two things. First, there's a fine queue of issues tagged dcsprint3 in the d.o tracker to complete. Second, we have the following roadmap for development leading up to DrupalCon Copenhagen:
DrupalCon Copenhagen is only a month and a half away, meaning we have our work cut out for us to prepare a Drupal Commerce release for presentation at the conference. After last week's code sprint, summarized here, we have a clear path forward and will be posting a roadmap for the next few weeks in the next day or two.
After DrupalCamp Colorado, we'll be flying back to the Commerce Guys office in Jackson, MI for a Drupal Commerce sprint. We'll be traveling Monday June 28, so the sprint will be Tuesday through Friday, June 29 - July 2. DamZ and bojhan will be joining us from Europe, and it looks like we'll have mfer for a day.
If you're interested in joining us, let us know so we can work out travel arrangements from the airport in Detroit and lodging in Jackson. I'm looking forward to a productive week after an extended weekend of hacking and brainstorming in Denver.
Prior to the sprint we'll post a list of high priority issues for our time together. This is bound to include further work on the Rules based price handler and completion of the critical Addressfield module.
Those wishing to pitch in virtually can also keep the low-hanging fruit issue queue handy. We've had some good participation in there this past week and I'm eager to see it pick up.
I'll be heading to DrupalCamp Colorado with some of the other Commerce Guys to present the current status of Drupal Commerce, promote the project, and collaborate with other Drupallers there. We went last year in a combined DrupalCamp / Ubercamp, and the e-commerce focus of the camp was very well received. Hopefully we can repeat the success and get some other contributors to show up... or find new contributors while we're there!
If you're interested, the camp is in Denver, CO on June 26-27th. The price of the event is dirt cheap, and we'll be hanging out around town the day before. I'd love to do a Commerce sprint while we're there, and I'd encourage anyone interested in presenting Drupal Commerce or general e-commerce sessions to do so!
Comment here if you're thinking of going so we can coordinate our time in town.
The content of this post should be boiled down into an easy to read documentation page, probably at development/roadmap, and it might even do to have a link in the sidebar directly to it. We spent quite a bit of time at the Paris Sprint discussing the various systems we needed to develop in order to start checking out orders. This involved a lot of great discussion about the future of orders, the shopping cart, checkout, and price handling.
During our last IRC meeting, we discussed a sprint in Paris at the end of this month. We set the dates for February 22-26 and will be working out of af83's office. We got a little bit of planning in but will need another meeting or two between now and then to be best prepared for our time together.
