Thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s Winter Survey. We received a ton of great suggestions, comments and feedback. Extra thanks to those who provided descriptions of their applications, challenges and projects. As with many surveys, some results are expected while some are enlightening.
We were really impressed by both the large number and the wide range of interesting applications community members are building and deploying. Mapping, tracking, dashboards, planning, monitoring, financial applications, company/group/club/band websites, mashups of all sorts and more, they are all being built with WaveMaker. The dev community is building some very cool stuff. If you should like to share a link to, screenshot of, or otherwise share more about your application with the community, drop me a line at email@example.com.
Many responders indicated that they were still learning and we heard many good suggestions on improving the learning process. The need for training was loud and clear and we will begin offering training sessions on the upcoming 5.0 release.
The screen cast tutorials are clearly liked, a lot. So watch for more screen casts on the wiki going forward.
A good number of you indicated that you’d like to see more documentation. Let’s just say that is one outcome we might have guessed. Several of you also indicated that you’d like more opportunities to contribute to the community. This is wonderful to hear. In a yeoman’s effort, Derek has moved the documentation in the wiki. Meanwhile we’ve been opening up the wiki, enabling community users to contribute to its development. Laurels and accolades to Sliipzinn and the others who have already signed up to help out with the wiki documentaton efforts. If you would like to contribute to the wiki, drop us a line at, you guessed it, firstname.lastname@example.org.
So who won? In my mind, first prize goes to the community. Your input and contributions help advance WaveMaker studio and runtime in the directions that enable you to be successful. Roadmap discussions on the forums, such as those by Ramzi and Matt, further help determine what the wave ahead might look like.
Who won the Wii ? The development team helped to determine the winners. Let’s just say they were pretty engineer like in their process. I think prime numbers and differential equations were involved.
And the winners are:
Cmorinico – iPod Nano
Jandro_es – iPod Touch
Faaokcxiao1 – Wii
Congratulations to the winners, thanks to everyone who responded to the survey and extra big thanks to everyone who volunteered to contribute to the community.
