Celebrating 5000+ Commits

Celebrating 5000+ Commits

Warning: working long hours till morning doing what you love to do, getting very little sleep, and using iSight to take pictures, may lead to happy puffy faces!

One of the joys of agile software development is about celebrating small achievements as well as not so small ones.In the past 2 years we have done over 5000 commits to the Anahita repository. That is over 2200 hours of work. We are currently standing at SVN revision 5262 and this weekend we updated Anahitapolis with the pre-alpha3 code. We worked from 6PM last sunday until 9:30 AM Monday morning as well as 2pm to 5pm afterwards the same day. When you are enjoying what you do, you won’t realize how time passes.

From what it seems, very soon, we will be able to make the Anahita Social Engine ™ alpha3 available to the Anahita tribe of partners and also make the alpha2 release available for the public download.

We have also been busy upgrading existing Anahita social apps and building new ones. The current Anahita applications are: Groups, Discussions, Photos, Connect (OAuth integration with facebook, twitter, linkedIn, Google), and Invites. The Nodes-Graphs-Story architecture of Anahita is doing wonders and we are so excited to show the world how to use the true architecture of a social network to build social websites and services.

Those who have been granted access to Anahitapolis can now see some of the new features such as Groups, fine-grain privacy, and many more architectural and usability improvements.

By the way, did you know that adding privacy to a media node is now as simple as doing this in your view layout?

<?= @privacy($photo) ?>

and from that point Anahita will take care of the rest by magic ;)

We will be posting more updates once the Anahita Social Engine ™ alpha 3 is released, so stay tunned!

    Congratulations!

    I’m really looking forward to your upcoming releases. Your project is so promising!

    By the way, is this your office or are you usually coding at your shopping mall? ;-)

    best regards!

    @Benno – Thank you, the next release is just around the corner. The picture is a cafe inside a large and famous grocery store in Yaletown Vancouver called Urban Fair. We were there to have lunch. We only go to office for meetings and social gatherings other than that we work from any spot that we are more comfortable with (each other’s homes, coffee shops). We all live practically across the street from our Studio

    I believe Automattic (creators of wordpress) have the same type of work environment. The office is only a gathering place, other than that people work from any location that they like.
