In 2010, I wrote many 'Inside Scoops' about our Team and its processes, and some on plugin development. However, as I was updating our Team Statistics for 2010, which display on many website pages, I realized there is one group of 'unsung heroes' we rarely mention - our vast community of developers. We often hear about the many plugin and skin developers, but did you know there are also many developers who quietly submit translations, EPG grabbers, movie grabbers and patches to fix bugs and improve or add features to MediaPortal?
One of the main principles of MediaPortal, as stated on our About Us: Behind the Project page, is that MediaPortal:
"Understands development is a team effort and treats users as co-developers, which has proven to be the most effective option for rapid development"
Have we succeeded? Can we do more? You decide! Read on to get the Inside Scoop on the current level of MediaPortal development by Our Community , and give us your ideas how we can improve.
