github actions

After getting a very basic docker container up and running it occurred to me, a lazy person, that there is probably some developer Saas out there that can take containers and regression test them against an expected output I provide. Two weeks ago I ran the “full run” code for the first time in two… Continue reading github actions

Docker and a regression

Let’s make a docker container out of this thing. The key win from docker is it gives you a headache-free way to “just run” something and not worry about the dependencies and install/uninstall and binary incompatibility and all that great stuff. So in our case it’s a bit of overkill. I’ve taken pains to keep… Continue reading Docker and a regression

2022 forecasting

The 2022 schedule is up in the cfbd API so let’s try a run: $ python3 ./mcc_schedule.py -v USC at Stanford on Sep 09, 2022 Fresno State at USC on Sep 16, 2022 San José State at Fresno State on Oct 14, 2022 San Diego State at Fresno State on Oct 28, 2022 Stanford at… Continue reading 2022 forecasting

Faking 2022

I am impatient for cfbd to populate the 2022 schedules so I can see how the Monte Carlo stuff performs on “fresh powder.” The good news is with the testing harness we can fake up the announced schedule without too much trouble. This should be it: Doing the teams as unstructured tuples is kind of… Continue reading Faking 2022

some tests are better than none

I was hung up for a while on the idea of unit tests and a proper test harness and how to pickle test sets. Python3 pickle serialization package seems really nice but it occurred to me that the most bang for my buck is some kind of end-to-end test with artificially created schedule data. The… Continue reading some tests are better than none

algorithmic tie-breaking

As we identified last month our worst bug right now is the handling of multi-way ties in the final standings so let’s dive in with some new code. First off in this commit we get rid of the false positive and identify the ties we are not handling so that we actually fail when we… Continue reading algorithmic tie-breaking

roadmap

It’s the end of the season; what now? Let’s do a check of the big board and get an H1 roadmap down. (I just googled “kanban for wordpress.”) Bugs multiway tiebreakers: This bug dominates all others right now. The tiebreakers code is painfully rigid in its two-teams-only approach. Logically we don’t have a clear ruleset… Continue reading roadmap
