BlogCFC isn't me. It may have been me - back in the 1.0 days, but for a very long time now BlogCFC has had the help of numerous people in the community. This has helped BlogCFC grow incredibly, and for that, a lot of praise goes to those of you reading this blog.
I've mentioned many times why V6 is taking so long, but I've decided that I really need to stop making excuses and recognize the fact that BlogCFC needs to change formally in order to grow.
So I asked for help to a set of friends and colleagues who I thought would be a good addition to the team. The idea here was simple. Set up roles and responsibilities and then step out of the way. I ensured they all had all the access they needed and now I will no longer be a stop gap to BlogCFC development. BlogCFC is no longer me. Thank God.
So who are the
foolsvaliant volunteers? Meet the Management Team:
- Architect/Team Leader: Me. Basically I'll spend most of my time at the model layer and serve as the development director.
- Website Manager: Charlie Griefer. The idea is to change BlogCFC from a blog into a real product site. Things like docs, release notes, screen shots, etc.
- Installer: Scott Pinkston. Yes, there will be an installer for BlogCFC. Now stop asking! (Or keep asking, but bug Scott. ;)
- Admin: Scott Stroz. I don't have huge changes planned here, but I do want to make it a bit prettier. My #1 goal though is to ensure that writing blog entries is as quick and simple as possible.
- Themes: Dan Vega. As folks know, Themes are a part of V6. Partial theme support is already done. Dan will be responsible for more of the maintenance side of this - and some of that is going to be revealed in later builds of V6.
- Testing/QA: Brian Kotek. This is two fold - writing unit tests and massaging incoming bugs (removing dupes, etc). This will be easy since BlogCFC has no bugs and runs perfectly all the time.
- Documentation: Lola J. Beno. Lola has already helped with the docs before, so she was a natural fit.
So - there ya go. The team. Let me personally say thank you to them all!
