Spring Cleaning Part 2

So I’ve made a few more strides in my spring cleaning adventures this week. I finally managed to get all my cURL test scripts to passed, which was a boost of confidence for me. Also, any other things that I had conveniently hardcoded back then were at least moved to Read more…

Spring Cleaning

So basically all I am doing right now is cleaning up the codebase of P3 as much as I can. There were some instances where refactoring is needed, especially for the caching mechanism part. I’ve mentioned it before, but I just want to emphasize how important tests are when it Read more…

Relief

This week I implemented the part where P3 is responsible for pulling the latest project files from S3. This is suppose to be done when a project has expired in the cache and is about to be flushed to the user’s storage. Therefore, it is a last minute effort to Read more…
