CHG rename professor display name

See original GitHub issue

The Course model has both professor and professor_for_course. The professor column seems to only be the name of the professor while professor_for_course is a one-to-many relationship with ProfessorForCourse model. So professor looks redundant and should be removed. However, removing this column seems to be not easy as we need to:

  • Change all the occurrences in the code that directly access this column
  • Do a database migration on the production server, which as far as I know can only be done by @wabscale

There’s a trick for the first change. After removing professor column we can write a professor property in Course that returns the value professor column originally contains. This way we don’t have to change all the occurrences in the code.

The reason I don’t do a PR immediately is because I don’t know if there’re other side effects that I haven’t considered yet. So please let me know you thoughts @wabscale .

No worries. This is not mission critical right now. Take all the time you need. Thanks for all your contributions, it is much appreciated.

Thanks for assigning this to me. I’ll probably work on it later this week as I’ve been busy with my own stuff. Also I need to check out how alembic works.
