Why Zong! is currently paused

Sorry for not posting during the last months. There are mainly two reasons for that:

  • I’m currently finishing my final project for my computer science studies. It is called “SimView” and is a traffic visualization tool, which is part of the simTD project and which I’m developing for the chair of traffic engineering and control of Technische Universität München. See the screenshot below. Originally I wanted to work on this project in early 2012, but due to time constraints I had to do it now, so I could not work on Zong! as much as I wanted.
  • I’m preparing for my future life as a freelance software developer, which will basically start in November 2011, but finally in March 2012 when I’ve finished my very last lecture and when I’ve been awared a M.Sc. degree. Zong! is an important part of this plan, although I’m currently not expecting to earn money with the project in the near future 😉

So stay tuned, Zong! will be much more active again starting in the following month! I can hardly wait to continue with this fun project 🙂

      Currently the project is paused because I’ve got lots of work in my job. We will continue in summer – as an open source project, including the Editor! Indeed, once we had the idea that parts of Zong! could be commercially used. It’s not only because of money. If you want to sell something, you put more effort in the project. Now we think, that open source might be the better option for Zong!. That should not mean that it has low priority for us, but my job as a freelance developer has started so good (I’ve finished my studies in early March 2012) that I’m completely full of work (that’s good for the beginning, but I want to reduce my workload from summer on). We’ll see, please stay tuned.
