What abaut TD5.1 SP1. Again!!!!

Hi James.

I don't wish to create a discussion on this topic. Only shake the Unify
guys a little.
I'm in IT bussines since 1976. and in the system engeneering consulting
bussines since 1990.
In my work i been seen al lot of estimations fails. The most myself. One
thing what I learned is there are three deadlines in a software project.
a) The marketing deadline .This very often have no connection with the real
world and of course is totaly ignorant of the technical time.
b) The proyect manager deadline. This is a balance (some times good, some
times no so good) between marketing deadline and the project manager
perception of project reality. Him or her are deeply infuenced by marketing
guys.
b) The real deadline. This is the time we, the programmers o system
architects realisticaly estimate, and in my experience, when those
estimations are make without listen to the marketing people and the proyect
manager, are normaly accurate ( +- 20%.)
I was and I'm a programmer . I love this profession. I work with Gupta since
1994 and I love this tool.
I undestand your mail but... WHY Martin said earlier december?. He inform us
(techical people) the marketing deadline not the real one. He can said end
of January or something else and then we can make ours migration plans more
accurately.
The post with TD 5.1 bugs starts two or three days before the release( Oct,
09) . My be the Unify guys must correct the more anyoning bugs and release a
new build. I log the bugs on my products and plan and correct the more
anyoning in timeframes of a week . My small company use a variation of Scrum
Agile depelopment method. I Asume that our software have errors and correct
and deliver a new buil on a week basis. Some programs have version numbers
like 3.56. We want to deliver software that be valuabe for our clients.

The TD customer community is very pacient and we have been seen this several
times in the past.
The only we need is more truth in the announces.

Bye.

Enrique

PD. My english is no so good, please forgiven my linguistics mistakes. I'm a
spanish speaker.

Original message from today ( in german ):
Erscheinung des 1. Service Pack für Team Developer 5.1 rückt immer näher

Neuesten Informationen zufolge wird das SP 1 für den Team Developer 5.1
nächste Woche, am 7. Dezember, verfügbar sein. Das Besondere an diesem
SP wird sein, dass es für ALLE Kunden zugänglich sein wird, die Anspruch
auf den Team Developer 5.1 haben.

Come on, these guys are programmers just like we are. How often do you hit
your estimates? You know how software development is at the coal face, it's
no respector of hopelessly optimistic time estimates by desperate marketing
people.

In my first job my boss would listen to my estimate, double it and round up
to the next unit (eg. 1 day = 2 weeks). In the next job I had a colleague
who's only wall decor was a big sign saying "quality or now ... you choose".
Two good lessons early in my career.

The Unify programmers do have one advantage we don't have for rapid delivery
of applications, they aren't developing them in TD ;-)

Sounds sort of like you're planning your release on what you believe is
someone else's 'marketing' release plan. I plan my upgrade releases based
on actually delivery of someone else's product. IMHO, basing on their
forecast and estimates is more than tenuous.

Early December or early January or whenever. I just want the thing to work.
As far as quality or now I think we all know the answer is always "Both!"
Remember:
"There's never enough time to do it right but there's always time to fix
it."

Hi,

I've got email: "You are invited to attend Unify's new Webinar. We'll cover
how to upgrade to 5.1 and new features in Service Pack 1."
There is 5.1 PTF1 available somewhere???
