The final objective (by the end of this semester) will be not only to study a certain colaborative system,
but also identify a problem and suggest an effective way to improve/solve it.
The teacher told us to do a FODA and compare our system to others in the same domain.
Here's an adapted table of comparisons, taken from a previous essay about GitHub (dated July/2012):
yes+ML = Forum + Mailing Lists
All systems have a Free Plan available
Features previosuly not checked:
- IDE Integration
Other systems previously not checked:
- Project Kenai: https://kenai.com/projects/help/pages/K ... t_do_i_get
- CodePlex: https://www.codeplex.com/
as many people who are new to GitHub/versioning have this barrier where they gotta learn how to use git properly.
However, IMHO, I find it pretty easy to use their "GitHub for Windows" application without the necessity of learning a lot about git.
For that reason, I don't consider this the main problem anymore.
Unfortunately, I don't use GitHub that much, so I'm struggling to find what could be a good problem to be evaluated throughout the semester.
That's pretty much it. Any help is appreciated, specially regarding the analysis and the comparisons.
