The reviewers said, “Really comprehensive treatment of the problem and associated issues. Worth pursuing I think… As a solution this is a good idea and was produced by genuine collaboration at the Dev8D event.”
So a short but happy developer post from me. The whole experience was lots of fun, and it would never have worked without Ian Ibbotson and Pete Sefton. I think the thing that I like most about it is that it not only re-uses existing tools, it fits with how people already work. It’s not “this application will change your life, but first you have to change your life”. I know that the (mostly junior) academics I’ve mentioned it to have loved the idea, so it might have real users if it was developed, which would be lovely.
