Why is #{this} successful?

Interesting list of project success factors over at the hibernate site.

I’ll summarize the points here so that I (we?) can make a mental picture:

rapid release schedule

regression tests

do one thing well

avoid over-design

a central vision


avoid standardsism

up and running in ten minutes or less!

developer responsiveness

easily update-able wiki pages…..

All this resonates loudly here. Next job is to minimize the gap between theory and practice (not talking about Hibernate, they’re doing fine I think).

    documentation: ahem
    avoid standardsism: OK
    up and running in ten minutes or less: got a full build in just over 10 minutes on a 1.5GHz Powerbook today
    developer responsiveness: doing much better than most
    easily update-able wiki pages: yes
