The BoardFusion project is now live on SourceForge.net. You'll notice you don't see anything on that page yet. That's a hint of sorts I suppose. I realize we're getting into the holiday season here in the U.S., but I want to start at least getting solid volunteers and putting the right people in place to make this project successful.First and foremost we need a great designer or two. We'll be hosting the development on SourceForge (for now at least), but the project will have its own web site as well, and we'll want that to look top-notch and of course we'll need a great logo. Also, since we're starting this from scratch as opposed to copying another application, I want to do this in a FLiP-like manner, meaning HTML prototyping will happen very early in the process. I know opinions on this differ a bit, but I can unequivocally say that from my own experience the projects I've worked on that have gone the most smoothly have all had the front-end complete prior to very much code being written. So we'll need a great UI and we'll also want to start thinking about making this PAINFULLY easy to skin right from the outset. I think that the more easy BoardFusion is to skin, the more successful it will be in the long run.So let's get the ball rolling. I'll announce this some other places as well since I know not everyone on the planet reads my blog. If you have general discussion-type stuff please feel free to comment to this entry. If you want to be involved please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and go ahead and sign up for an account on SourceForge if you don't already have one. Then we can move the discussion and coding over there.
I'm really excited to see where this goes!
I don't hv much time in my hands nowadays but ill try to come up with a logo and icon design, even if is not chosen to be the official one, i tried =D Just give me a couple of days and ill send u an email with a logo sample ( or not a sample ) for u to check.Happy coding !
