Project Shinobi is running on schedule, as proved by the milestone met this week to get to an internal pre-alpha release.
The first look at the current results of the project was met with cheers in the internal Skype chat we use for keeping the entire team in the loop when geographically dispersed. It is awe-inspiring to see the first step taken towards the public release on October 1st. Especially since the pre-alpha consists a proof-of-concept for the technically challenging parts of the project (pending stress-tests). It also provides the opportunity to evaluate the usability concepts we have been developing step by step during the past one and a half years.
Here is a snippet from our internal Skype chat (in Swedish), to provide some insight into how the pre-alpha release was recieved internally. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited about this project!
