  • 6. 3 easy steps http:/ /en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnomes_(South_Park_episode)
  • 7. At Praized, we are at phase #2 now!
  • 8. More seriously... 1. How do you go from an idea, 2. To a product... 3. To a business?
  • 9. The only thing certain... Is uncertainty!
  • 10. Go for agility Core product/market direction Technology choices for speed
  • 11. Dev Team intelligence and autonomy Choose your metaphor wisely
  • 12. Technology choices for speed ● Anti Not Invented Here Syndrome (re-use is king) ● Linux (Debian/Ubuntu) for servers ● Hosted at Amazon EC2 + Liquid Web ● Ruby On Rails for platform / API ● MySQL + Sphinx for search ● WordPress and PHP for distributed views ● jQuery + CSS framework (more from Frank later) ● TRAC for subversion + tickets + wiki
  • 13. Sea dogs / dev team ● Colin Surprenant – Lead Engineer ● Marc-André Gagnon – Platform/API developer ● Stéphane Daury – Wordpress + PHP guru ● François Lafortune – Front-end developer ● Many freelancers from Montréal (Station C)++ ● And a secret zombie army (more on that later) ● Interview process is a few weeks... write some code, close some tickets, ask good questions.
  • 14. The secret zombie army Open Source developers from all over the world!
  • 15. No Quarters! ● Architecture is art/science, keep right balance ● Have test to cover at least 80% of the codebase ● Automated deploy, FTW! ● Ship at least once per week, twice sometimes ● Milestones, tickets, priorities, review each week ● Standup meeting every morning ● Almost no meetings. Wiki pages, BRD, frankendoc, white boards, giant post-it
  • 16. Open Standards for uplift ● A few choices : Microformats, OAuth, OpenWeb ● Timing, community, maturity (almost) ● Make sure your stuff is easy/documented ● Open means letting a little bit go ● Open means being in many places (Google Code, WordPress.org) ● Open also mean being out there (like tonight) ● Open mean you can start now! http:/ /praizedmedia.com/en/api
