Features & Bugs & Errors

Blog post like these are why I have my own website:). If you are like me you are tired of the lack of transparency in the software industry. Every product I have OEM’ed and half of the ones we have purchased for corporate use are riddled with hidden bugs that I just know the vendor knew about . Some times its is totally obvious they knew, sometimes, it isn’t but I have worked in this industry for too long to think everyone is as ignorant as they pretend to be. That is why I have added a new section to the support page of the website called the transparency tracker.

The road forward

I think 2018 is going to be a truly great year for Quin-C and the goal of this blog post is to convince you I am correct:). 2016, was project inception and definition. 2017 was core functionality, architecture, and flexibility. 2018 will be about work flow and feature enhancement. But what does that mean exactly? That is what I want to share here but before I do that I need to provide the standard disclaimer that since we are talking about futures I could easily be wrong about everything I am about to say. Quin-C is entirely market driven so if our customers push us in a different direction than what is articulated here, we will look back on this blog as a laundry list of lies:). Of course I will communicate changes as they happen so don’t worry but the point is things can change quickly so this is at best a guess of what is to come.

Where we are now:

So I know this might be a boring topic because everyone wants to know were we are going but we have covered so much ground in the last few months that I think it is worth a quick blog to talk about the current state of affairs and the architecture of Quin-C. For those of you that disagree, just ignore this blog and my next entry will talk about where we are going in 2018. But for those of you that made it past that last sentence lets talk about where we are now. The current situation, in my view, is that we have what I believe is a reasonably well tested product that I am very proud of. I am not saying it is bug free. There is no way that is true. But I can say that I don’t know of any meaningful bugs and that is about as good as it gets in software. We are holding off on the official release a few more weeks to allow for the incorporation of some new design elements but I believe the product is ready in almost every respect. It will be posted on the website this week for anyone to download and take for a spin with a free 30 day license.
