Concentration/Focus

The #1 reason why I like working with other developers is that it gives each developer a chance to concentrate and/or focus on one certain area or feature. For other projects/websites, I had to “just get it done” for every page. But working with Tubby and Alec opens up a new light which allows me to work on a certain feature all to myself. We’re working with a policy that allows each developer no limits to what they add to the feature. We will decide as a team before releasing if everything is really necessary, but I think it’s really quite fair, and each developer has their own ideas about what works well and what doesn’t.

I’m currently working on the Private Messages system. The process of this feature began with a hunt. I signed up to several different sites, logged in to others I already was a member of, etc. to view different private messaging systems. The purpose of this, is to compare the ideas we had already to the results of many Private Messaging systems around the net today. We came up with some really great ideas, which I think will push Blabber’s PM system ahead of others; even if it’s just by a notch. The PM system is currently going under some final development. After that stage, we can move on to the stage of testing. During that stage, I will be making a blog post with pictures and perhaps an audio-featured video clip of the live PM system. We have developed some of these crazy ideas already, and it’s just exciting to see it all running in real-time.

Once the PM system is complete, we’ll be moving on to user profiles, which will also include the friends system as one complete *package*. For this, we’re going to need to work out an algorithm that ties in with other ideas we’ve drafted, to make everything possible. Should be fun. 🙂

Along with these updates, I also wanted to let you know that the backbones (oriented programming) of the Blabber system is getting pretty solid, which is exciting. Looking through the code; we’re using theorys and functions that run efficiently, and just perform more solid than the “Blabbernet” framework did. This makes writing an API (which we will be doing in the future) much easier, in the long run.

Hope you enjoyed the updates. If you want any questions you might have answered, just leave a comment or email me.

Blabber on!
