Mobile Apps. and Pre-release Test Scripts
At the end of 2013 we finished the Crowd Funding Campaign and raised the money needed to hire specialist developers to help us build a testing platform and barcode scanner APPs for android and iOS. We are very thankful to everyone below that contributed to our campaign.
We say thanks to the following people:
jmdinardo, ariel33, Paul Swan, andy.g.kennedy, gabriel furchert, Sam Dineley, jtimmons, Guido Hornig, hansq, Christopher Gouveia,Theo Jacobs, Angel O Romero, Christophe Rillaerts, Thasikaran Sivarajah, Thomas Spadaro, chicagoblues, Elout van Leeuwen, Victor Madureri, Alfonso Leal del Ojo, Francisco Dominguez, gloliveevents, Brent Riley, Christopher Tipper, Grant Moxom, Karsten Peters, Ken Haarstad, Gilles Gaudet, Joseph Patrick, Michael Becerra, William Evans, Charles Dawson, Daniel Goldwasser, Radcliffe URC Players, Dan Mullen, Peter Luu, Simon Lyall, Jonathan Gladwill, Adrian Menzl, Gareth, Rene Meeh, Glenn Mayer, Bryn Davies, Simon Bradley, Turquoise Australia, Mitchell Kellett
And everyone else who wished to be anonymous while they contributed.
We now have the funds for the next steps in the Fusion Ticket Life Cycle.
The most important step towards a Production Release is to introduce a degree of independent Quality Control for all releases. This requires a formal testing procedure to ensure that all major functions work correctly and the version is stable. The Test Procedure is being written by an Individual or Organization not connected with the existing Development Team.
It was also evident (from User feedback) that there is a need to improve the Ticket Taking Control. The need to use a 'corded' scanner places unacceptable restrictions when technological advances, the widespread use of Smart Phones and the availability of 3G can provide much more convenient options. We thus are developing a Mobile Scanner Plugin for the use with future releases.
Both these Requirements require expertise outside the capability of the Fusion Ticket Team.
Progress is good. For the most up to date news, please check the Forum or visit us on our IRC channel.
