Towards techdemo 2


Now that techdemo 1 has been released two days ago, the team is starting to look forward towards the 2nd techdemo. Obviously a number of planned features and content didn’t make it into the first one so these aspects are hot candidates to ship with techdemo 2.

PARPG developer b0rland did the first step and compiled an early techdemo 2 proposal at the wiki. We appreciate every kind of feedback, both from developers as well as from the community.

A discussion thread about the priorities for techdemo 2 has been started at the forums. Feel free to contribute.

    The link to the wiki is wrong – it just links back to this blog post.

    Correct link:
    http://wiki.parpg.net/Proposal:TechDemo_2

    I also think this is an early indication that some of the language in the previous post was overly negative. You were talking about doing a post mortem and the project not getting finished etc. Seemed a bit dramatic, since this is an open source project with a community. By it’s very nature some periods nothing will be done and other periods progress will be rapid.

    Link has been fixed, thanks for the pointer charlie.

    About the post mortem: I’ll still go forward with that one. Not too sure if I’ll post it at the PARPG blog or if I’ll set up a new project management blog.

    I’m still deeply concerning about the project at this point to be honest. I’m usually not a drama guy but you covered top 10 projects to be revived at freegamer at some point. It’s not that OSS projects that get abandoned are the exception to the rule, they are the rule.

    So I thought that it would be better to send SOS maybe a bit early than to let the ship sink without screaming for help.

    I don’t think post mortem is quite a fitting term but I’m looking forward to the posts regardless. Even though there seemed to be some problems in certain areas, I think PARPG had top notch project management overall. Learning more about how it worked and what didn’t work quite so well would be of great value to many projects.
