Responsibilities

  • Ensure that all modules are updated in a timely manner when it is your week to update them.
  • Notify players of changes as they are moved to production.

  • Internet access with a broadband connection.

Job Description

As a module updater, you will be part of a team of four or five people responsible for uploading all ten Avlis modules on a weekly basis. The QA Lead will create a monthly schedule. Each week a different Module Updater will be responsible for updating (not building, that's the responsibility of the Builders) all the modules.

Modules will be uploaded by the active Module Uploader when it is signed off on by the QA Team. Modules can be uploaded throughout the week by the responsible Module Updater as they are ready.

Having a weekly schedule should keep the updating workload reasonable. You should expect to spend 15 minutes per module on the week you are reponsible for modules. Some weeks will require less time. Some weeks will require more. In the case of major system updates, the QA Lead may split the modules to be uploaded between two or more Module Updaters to keep the workload reasonable and timing close.
