"I wish I had a unicorn" - whaaat?!?

2013 07 29

“I wish I had a brother, a toy gun, a pony and a unicorn, Mom!” Sounds familiar? What is amazing, is the fact that parents will try their best to fulfill all of the wishes of their beloved child.

Now imagine that “Mom” is a team of developers and the “kid” is one of 100+ clients, sales guys and other people in the organization. In such context it becomes pretty hard for the “Mom” to deliver what everyone wishes for.

Nowadays it is more and more escalated that “transparency” is the new “motivation”. Great, as we do have a challenge with controlling the constant flow of wishes and requests, we might actually use the principle of transparency. How, you might wonder? By putting all the requests on a map and nicely visualizing the connections, argumentation and usage of each and every requested feature once it is implemented.

As 1 million developers using the Maps API say – let’s reimagine the map.

We finally started to make new outdoor game. Project schedule doesn't look very optimistic after initial planning and first iteration. But we will see how our velocity changes after several iterations. :) You can check our code here - https://github.com/adform/Academy.KillAZombie

But we are ready to share some ideas how game could look like! :)
