The end of the beginningBy zeh • Nov 30th, 2008 • Category: Developer diaries
Last Wednesday, I finally delivered my thesis’ final copy to college (there’s a PDF version here, but it’s in Brazilian Portuguese only – I’m translating it, but that will take time). It starts by describing the project’s context and goals, then it explains its development and execution methodology, and finishes with my assessment on how successful the project was on a technical level, as well as a list of features that were not implemented and that should be taken into account in the next reviews of the program.
That doesn’t mean I’m done with the college assignments, though. I will still have to present it to a board of teachers somewhere around the coming days, to give a better explanation of the project as a whole and to defend some of its goals and methodology.
It doesn’t mean my work in Fnk is over, either. While I think it’s a good start, there’s plenty of features I still want to add to it, and my to-do list right now is bigger than ever. Its development will be a bit slower from now on, however – I have to do actual work, after all, as I was enjoying a kind of a sabbatical period to work exclusively on it for the past two months and I can’t keep that up forever.
Regardless, I think it has a bright future. In the meantime, thanks for everybody who sent suggestions and helped me test the software.
