All the teams of the rainbow

There are now 5 teams working on the same codebase, and we all have coloured codenames.

  • Blue/Green/Teal: News
  • Crimson: Local
  • Purple: World Service
  • Orange: Rapid Rollout


Essentially we are both purple and orange. But the idea is that we rotate between us onto the orange team to roll out new sites.

This pretty much started with Arabic, where Stefano and I were the core developers working on that. And now Bogdan has mainly been working on Newyddion.

It’s not quite as straightforward as that, as one developer can’t create the whole site. That developer might be more of a front-end dev for example, and therefore wouldn’t be the best person to do the back-end tasks. So everyone is essentially chipping in anyway.
