This is my 1000th post to the EpicTable forum. Thanks for pointing out this opportunity, Jan van Leyden, though my 1000th post was almost the reply, "Hey! You're right! I should post something really special for my 1000th post....doh!"
My 1000th post seems like a fitting time to give you guys a heads up on everything that's going on with the EpicTable 1.0 Milestone. Over the next couple days, I'll be posting details about EpicTable;s upcoming transition from beta to released product. In those posts, I'll answer questions like:
- What happens once the beta's over?
- What's the pricing/licensing model?
- Where/when can I get the released 1.0 product?
- What about features that didn't make the 1.0 cut?
- What's next for EpicTable?
I'll also be talking about the upcoming site refresh. The current site is three years behind the in-product branding and the branding of our EpicTable booth. Adding an e-commerce site just deepens the brand identity crisis--unless I true everything up. So, that's exactly what I'm doing, with considerable help from the talented Brennen Reece. I'm really
excited about the new site. It looks way better and it's given me a chance to rethink what information is important and make that easy to find. Along the way, I'll also:
- revisit feature lists and screenshots
- make sure the 1.0/future line is clarified
- update the feature list to include the new features that arose due to the input of this community
- get rid of the forum theme bugs I've been ignoring
It's been a long road to get here. This community has been hugely
beneficial to EpicTable, and to me personally. EpicTable has evolved as a result of the folks here, and very much for the better. Your encouragement and suggestions have kept me going through times when it felt like EpicTable 1.0 felt impossibly far away. Thank you, all.
I'm excited about the EpicTable 1.0 release, but it's a milestone, not a finish line. There's a lot more that I have planned for EpicTable, and I'm more excited and energized about it than ever.
