  • 1. Magic 8 Ball
    • by: Ryan Cross (rcross)

  • 2. Drupal’s Future
    • When is the next release?
    • What is going to be in it?
    • What are we working on now?
    • How do we know if we’re making progress
    These are common questions and often can be critical for project managers Text
  • 3. Vision
    • Work is most effective when everyone has the same goal
      • Easy to measure progress and success vs failure
    • Everyone has to agree to it
    • It has to be communicated to everyone
    • It needs to be simple and clear
    • Vision provides the goal (roadmap)
  • 4. No RoadMap
    • Code Talks & Bike Shed Walks
    • Survival of the fittest (?)
    • Easier to do time-based release schedule instead of feature-based
    • Things people want to work on get done
    • Competition vs Collaboration
    • How to measure success?
    • Sub-projects of Drupal starting to make their own roadmaps (Aegir, Docs, Pantheon, etc)
    Pros Cons http://buytaert.net/roadmap
  • 5. Defined RoadMap
    • Easy to measure if the project is making progress
    • Clear about what to work on at any given moment
    • Less competition, easier decision making
    • Stifles innovation?
    • No working on stuff outside the roadmap?
