Sometimes I sit here at night when its mostly quiet in the house and think about my mortality.
I'm heavily invested in http://bearsampp.com right now and am pretty much the only one the knows the ins/outs of how it all works. I'm training jacob but he doesn't have the php knowledge that i have and mine is very little. He's great at testing and all the admin stuff so we make a good team but it worries me, alot, what will happen to the project when i'm gone.
I've built the project as an organization ( http://github.com/Bearsampp ) so the project itself is safe but it will still need dev's to keep things updated and for any new features.
Jacob is doing well but I worry.
Joomla! will do fine without me. Bearsampp I'm not sure of.
I almost wish I knew when......
I just have to remind myself that HE has a plan. Even for little things. If HE wants Bearsampp to live he'll eventually provide resources that will make that happen.
For now I have to focus on growing the brand and creating a better product then Neard ever was.
01Oct22 will be our next release and its a big one. We've accomplished sooooo much.
We're very rapidly approaching the point where we won't have much "new" stuff to do. Just keep the modules up-to-date.
The long term plan is to reach a "stable" state before 2023 so we can be in maintenance mode for 2023. At that point our "baby" should be ok for the forseeable future.
I wish I was at this point 20yrs ago. Life would be very different.
As he wishes...
