Apologies for the extended Bug Bash downtime. In response to the occasional queries in the comments, a quick update on the reasons behind it and when to expect an update containing actual new comics:
As promised, here’s the result of my “animation proof of concept” project, “Arctic Circle”:
The “proof of concept” goal was twofold: one, to see if the costs of production for such animation had dropped to a doable level (they have). Two, to see if the “Arctic Circle” concept itself had any legs. That remains to be determined.
BTW, I’m aiming to have the next Bug Bash up next week. I kind of miss it too.
Bug Bash is a comic strip written and illustrated by Hans Bjordahl. Bug Bash is a comic strip about technology: managing technology, the business of technology. It's about project management and managing projects through the dull world of Rational Rose, use cases, and requirements. Functional requirements, user requirement, functional specifications, design specifications, call it what you want but it's still the bane of project managers. And when you're done with that, you can think about all the fun that comes with timelines, scheduling, estimates (PERT estimation anyone?) and resourcing until Gantt charts are coming out of your ears. Let's not forget the risk management in the software engineering life cycle. Maintaining the project is just as much fun, managing what was initially set out in requirements and trying to keep feature creep / scope creep in check with change management. If any of these words send nightmares to you, the project manager, then this site probably rings true with you. (Who Links Here?)
