Converting ERB files to EPP
This week, the modules team in Pune have done some great work on converting ERB files to EPP on our modules. EPP is the new method of templating and the team, have been identifying modules which need converting and converting them.
Module and Tools Onboarding
Over in Belfast, we’ve been contiuing to onboard with our tools. We’ve been taking each tool and doing a general health check and doing deep dives into how they work. You may have seen some action with some PRs being merged and some bugfixes going in here and there.
Likewise, over in Pune the team have been onboarding with their modules doing the same thing. It’s an exciting time in the CAT team as we have a larger team to further support our modules and tools and are putting the hard work in now to provide our best support to them.
Modules and Tools Office Hours
Going forward, we will be splitting our Tuesday office hours sessions into Modules and Tools office hours, alternating between each. Details on the timings of each session will be communicated in the near future.
