BarCampWaterloo4 & Coding

I went to BarCampWaterloo4 which was fun. A lot of past NITI people where there presenting. I gave a brief presentation on All The Code and I got a lot of useful feedback and some interesting suggestions with what to do next. In a quick survey, it seemed the majority of the BarCampWaterloo attendees to be using subversion, with only one person using VSS and a few people using PreForce. One of the more interesting suggestions for a feature was a trac plugin, which is something I'm definitely going to look into. I also got a few suggestions on how to take it forward in terms of a product.

In what is probably the story of almost every developer on the planet, I've managed to underestimate the amount of work involved with almost all of the projects I'm working on. My Google Summer of Code project is coming along a lot slower than I was expecting. I did get some advice, from a friend of mine who has spent a lot of time developing python bindings, on how a better approach to take so I'm going to give that a try. On my other project, the road blocks are largely with getting access to the proprietary tools that I need to interface with, but I think I've found a way to get most of what I need.
