Distant future plans, not very high level of probability:

* U++ consulting




IMHO, you should seriously consider U++ consulting and training as soon as possible. Although more time consuming, this is where the money is and it is also a very good way to promote U++.

Technologies such as webinars, podcasts, etc. make online consulting and training feasible. Smile

Yeoh

Great point! If anyone here has is on any of the SANS-bites security mailing lists, there are webinars and such advertising hands-on training every couple of weeks. Seems to work well for them!

Such an approach might indeed be suitable for UPP.

Getting money is good thing.
How about do feature's based donation, may be sound silly.
My idea is, you have a list of features and ask the community which feature that they wish to come true, by putting some donation for certain period. Then we can start with feature with highest donation.

For example,
For januari 2007 we will have these features:
a. feature a
b. feature b
c. feature c

You can ask people to donate for the feature they like to be included in next release.

That's all

Not silly at all, quite standard in open-source projects I guess.

I have no final opinion on this...

Edit (2 minutes later): I start to like it Wink Just not sure what to propose...

In any case, we can incorporate this to the donations system. Voting by money Wink

OK, I see feature list for past 2007.1 development like this:

- TheIDE improvements
- MacOS X support
- Widgets enhancements

Any other ideas?

MacOsX support is great, when i told to my friend about Ultimate++, his question was, "can it run under MacOsX?"
I said not in current version, then he said "hmm not this time"

I was thinking about this a while ago, about how such a project would get donations. Seems like a good idea. You could call it a support table and have poll-like progress bars for relative competition and get imaginative (and of course, invite suggestions).

Well, the only possible problem I see is that it could steer U++ in wrong direction - e.g. I think OS X is absolute must ASAP... In any case, I believe that it should be considered as "hint" rather than firm development plan...

And there is should also be the "poll reset" sort of event...

I see, it's possible for Ultimate ++ goes to wrong direction.
May be we can separate into two development paths if possible, the first path is main milestone of Ultimate++, maybe you can describe the main feature that will be developed and the second path is some features that Ultimate++'s users like to have for their need but will be benefit to others.

Both path can be voted by donation, but the first path will have higher priority.

Version control integration for theIDE ?
I would suggest Subversion (or an improved uvs2 Wink).

SOAP (web service) support, at least the client side, would be very benefical if the enterprise level is the target.

Hey, Mirek! I have no problem with such ideas. Seems like these days everything starts to cost more money. You deserve something back for what you've been able to develop here.

Also, it's almost tempting to see if I could win the ebay auction and put something silly like "Real programmers use a magnet and a sheet of paper to compile their code onto a hard drive" or something like that down as the advertisement.

The plan has changed, but only a little - no ebay this time, bids are placed by email.

An Idea that I strongly believe that would give a great push to U++ and it's something that only one tool in the market has.

Training and Consulting is a great idea. Try to work off donations and advertising for a few more releases and set a plan for training and consulting (will you travel, or use a webex like interface, etc). I think there is a HUGE market for a good cross-platform C++ full development environment; U++ looks to me to have the most potential.

Keep the licensing the same and I think you will get big business in training, consulting, and support packages (priority support for a fee, possibly phone support, guaranteed response within certain time frame, etc). I know I would push my company to have someone from your team provide some training on using the tool and also on the nuances of cross-platform development.

The only thing I would worry about as an enterprise developer at this stage though is project shut down, though the open nature of the project provides relief in that area. This worry will undoubtedly diminish as the project progresses.

Hi Mirek,
First, many thanks for a really outstanding tool.

Second: re enterprise tools:
1. Project management support: e.g. links with planner,
reporting tools;
2. Team support: e.g. code sharing/re-use repository;
3. CVS (or other version control) support;
4. Testing & QA support
5. Direct link to professional support for UPP
(*most important - managers want the security of telling
someone else to fix there problems)

Regards
