A year ago I wrote a blog on what I called ‘community-developed refinement (CDR)’. My idea was to incentivise the user community to develop a large proportion of a product with a share in any future revenues.
I had heard some companies have been playing in this area, but none of them had gone as far as the model I had thought of. But there is now a company who is going all the way by encouraging its user community to develop its product and share in the rewards.

Earlier this week The Access Group ran an enjoyable and interesting Think Tank session in Central London looking at future trends in NFP and of course updating on their latest offerings and plans for 2014.

For starters be warned before you read further this blog may well lack both the creative flair and the worrying knowledge of warfare and weaponry that some of my colleagues possess and successfully weave into their blog. None the less it is intended to share the difficulty a client is experiencing with the adoption of new technology.
Many years ago (more than I care to mention), I was working on a project for Logica. At the time I was the young kid on the block - the rising star (you can imagine quite how long ago it was).
It’s hard being a designer or architect. Firstly, doing the actual design is pretty hard. We don’t trust this task to any but our most experienced team members for good reason. You need experience, domain knowledge and good degree of skill. So, this usually falls to team veterans and here lies one of the big challenges that Agile development creates.
I attended a meeting yesterday evening in Birmingham hosted by bit10 for the Midlands Umbraco Meetup. One of the subjects discussed was the introduction of the latest release of the Umbraco CMS v7. There was lots of excited techie discussion about the revised file tree structure where containers hold multiple news items instead of lengthy complex long explorer style like trees; about the tool to handle multiple media items; and AngularJS.
