Lessons from a Rewrite 4.51 http://spkr8.com/t/7480


In late 2010, Toura Mobile had developed a PhoneGap-based platform for creating content-rich mobile applications, and customers were buying. The problem was that customers were also asking for more and more complex features, and Toura was rapidly discovering that their platform was more of a prototype than a solid base for future development. In this session, I'll talk about the decision to start from scratch, what we did differently the second time around, how we used features of the Dojo Toolkit to smooth the process, and how we designed the new solution with an emphasis on expecting the unexpected.

Interesting and I learned a lot, but I don't think the title was descriptive of the content. Content was more what you did for 2nd iteration, rather than describing problems with the 1st and how that was solved in the 2nd.

Thanks for the detailed journey. I really enjoyed the posts that I have read so far for
