wiki1235: Roadmap (Version 4)

Foundry27 Roadmap#

Foundry27 is by its very nature a dynamic environment; we expect continuous refinements to the portal and its projects. We plan the evolution of Foundry27 into a rich ecosystem will span following 4 phases:
  • Foundation - infrastructure and initial content seeded - done!
  • Building Community - enhance content and get community interest - already making great progress!
  • Enablement - contribution framework in place, active community
  • Momentum - projects from the community start producing value add

While we believe the initial version of the portal is a great environment for the QNX community to interact, we already have plenty of ideas to improve it over time. You suggestions are welcome, share them through the Community Forum.


While the initial set of projects Foundry27 hosts is small and mostly based on QNX contributions, it is our mission to increase the number of projects over time and to promote projects from other community members. QNX plans to offer its technologies to the community through new projects on a quarterly basis.


Because the goal of Foundry27 is to foster the community of QNX users and developers, contributions from anyone is welcome. We are currently working on the official process that will govern the creation of new projects as well as external contributions to QNX's own projects. We expect to have the process and infrastructure in place within the first quarter of 2008. Until we have an official and published process, we encourage anyone interested in sponsoring a new project to contact the QNX Community Management Group.
