No more daily scrum posts

I started posting my daily scrum “meetings” as a part of my work process to improve my accountability and to ease monitoring my progress. As I’m now in the final lap of my race to write a dissertation I’ll stop posting the daily scrum lists to this blog. I’ll continue to use Trac for activity monitoring.

Met the Goal or Not?

That is what I wondered last weekend. Another Sprint completed, but was it successful?

In the end I had to conclude that it wasn’t. The current version of the Ph.D. is not a complete “product”. Never mind the stuff I did not get done, what matters most that I did not get the text into a complete package that could be reviewed.

The reason for this is that I had much to figure out for the final version of my manuscript. I had to work out new outlines of the theoretical framework, research method overview and one of the literature review chapters. All these were inter-connected in my head so I couldn’t complete any of them before figuring out the rest in a high level. And this figuring out stuff, it really commands some time. More than I had planned at this stage anyway.

But, even though the Sprint will be labeled unsuccessful, the project goes on. I have time for one final Sprint. The goal has to be to gun for the complete manuscript, final version. And I think I have enough time to do the stuff that needs to be done. So here it is, Doomsday the Final Battle, deadline on 22.12.2009.

My New Blog on GBLE Dev

I’ve started a new blog on the development of digital game-based learning environments. My goal is to present the experience and knowledge I’ve gathered during my dissertation research in a practical and useful manner.

The blog is at http://learninggamedev.wordpress.com/ . The blog is based on my experiences on four GBLE development projects carried out during my research as well as literature reviews and discussions with other practitioners in the field.

I hope that my blog will be useful from GBLE and serious games developers out there. The more academic account of my research will be presented in my Ph.D. thesis which I plan to complete during the first quarter of 2010.
