dbt prototyping work started
A long time interest in the community has been to have credit associated with discussions participation.
There’s a roadmap ticket for it and some current projects need this feature.
Brian has proposed that we avoid pulling analytics into grading, but…
Would summarizing discussions participation via events as input into a discussion grade be a good path forward?
One advantage is potentially making graded discussions more easily available beyond a specific forum implementation.
Another advantage would be not implementation a “tallying” system in the comments services.
Ideas for future work
We’ve got OARS and the funded work in progress, and tracking log event cleanup / formalization coming this year. What else should Data be looking at for the future? Are there pain points in the platform that we should tackle? Deprecation of MongoDB and/or memcached? Moving from MySQL to PostgreSQL? What’s on your mind?
