Some time has passed since my last blog post. I have been working on quite a few things recently. My Personal Kanban is one of them.
I did run a short survey between some of the My Personal Kanban users, asking them about things they would like to see in future releases. Some of the most important include:
- seamless synchronisation with Cloud across many devices
- mobile version of the application
- tagging of cards that makes them searchable
- Master Board with cards across all Kanbans
At this moment I’m heavily working on the development of the Synchronisation with Cloud. It will replace rather unfriendly process of saving and loading from Cloud. I’m buried in rather complex algorithms for resolving Conflicts between Kanbans.
I’m also re-architecting and modularising Client side services, so they could be reusable in more than one version (same services to be used in Web version and Mobile version).
One of the major changes would involve delivery or deployment mechanism. The application itself will no longer be available as downloadable ZIP file, but a static website that will work offline, Chrome App and Firefox Extension and Mobile HTML5 application for both iOS and Android platforms.
Kanban is also getting a major UI redesign with help from my friend and a great designer Mike.
I am still juggling 9 to 5 day job, preparing to present on a conference and attempting to finish “Principles of Reactive Programming” on Coursera. That is the main reason why new release of My Personal Kanban is taking longer.
The road is long but there is light at the end of a tunnel. Stay tuned.
