Thread: Linux Native Project Managment & Product Managment App

  1. #1

    Default Linux Native Project Managment & Product Managment App

    Hello everyone,

    I am interested in contributing to the Linux App eco system for a missing application.
    (the engineering logic, if you don’t like something build a better version of it).
    as I linux user I am OpenSuse (KDE), Arch (XFCE) / EndeavourOS (GNOME) with KDE as core DE.

    I am planning to build a simpler desktop version with app to app sync features like Asana or Jira.
    intended for small free and open source projects for project & product management for small teams to be useful guide for daily or weekly standup meetings with agile and scrum as a methodology in mind.

    anyone interested is welcome to join (DM me your email to send invite or join via the link tomorrow), project will become available from tomorrow 4.12.2020 and I already have many Linux users interested in helping out (since I plan to have a live demo at May the Forth next year).

    The end product will always be Free and Open Source and with Linux as Native platform in mind, if we can make it work on Windows or MacOS via for example ElentronJS or any similar multi platform framework, but Linux will be priority and. I will never allow corporate monetization for this project / app.

    I have 20+ years IT software development experience and close to 10 years experience as team leader, hence i am confident I can build a wonderful product for the Linux and Open Source Community. anyone interested I can send over LinkedIn and other professional details in case you wanna check it.

    Have a good day and a wonderful weekend ahead.
    Kind Regards, Alex.

    P.S. I am new OpenSUSE forum user but I am not a new Linux user (active Arch User and EndeavourOS user and recently KDE).

    Hi,
    I would recommend a public posting of your project on a suitable platform of your choice.
    Nowadays, Github or Gitlab are probably the leading platforms... Free for any public projects and supporting a versioning file system (git). Github broke original ground incorporating support for development code incorporating aspects of social media, allowing Developers to find each other more easily than on older code repositories like Sourceforge/Freshmeat which is also another good option.

    A simple, single page that describes your project broadly, detailed objectives, application architecture and a call for immediate specific contributions might be a good starting point. Optionally you can also publish a roadmap and timetable for additional needs.

    You might find hints on what to include in your initial announcement to the world in what is recommended in applications to Venture Capital, IMO the same things would be what you want to include... ie An Executive Summary, Elevator Pitch, brief Business Plan based on 3 or 5 years and expected ROI (results)... And don't forget what makes your idea a fire breathing world-beater.

    You can decide what should be kept private if anything, of course publishing too much might expose your ideas to others who will simply use for their own projects. But, you need to say something that attracts the talent you need. It's hard but you need to strike that balance. If you have any background in modern development concepts like Agile Development, it could help you deliver a working product earlier (which basically means in perpetual development mode).

    Good Luck,
    The world can always use a better way to manage Projects and Products.
