Not a Dev?

WIP (Work in Progress) section


#1

There should be a section for developers to show off projects that are works in progress. This allows others to contribute and to track issues within a specific project.


#2

Nice idea, @Scotty! Were you thinking of them posting videos here, for example?


#3

Maybe a subcateogy here:


#4

I am thinking that when developers make things like USB backpack extensions, 3D printed arms/accessories, and skills that go along with those.

These sort of projects are usually longer in the works, and may generate interest from the community to participate/help. This could be a subcategory of showcase, with the emphasis that it may be anything from the starting idea to wrapping up the project (and then be ready for a showcase). It also allows us to see into the process of how developers approach this process.


#5

At SmartThings we had the concept of SmartApps and those track very closely to what we are thinking for Skills. I thin a Skills category (somewhere) where people can share those works in progress (and perhaps invite feedback and collaboration) would be good. Like a place for draft skills prior to submitting to the “Skills Store”.


#6

Ha - I actually forgot about this section:

There’s one for accessories too:

I think maybe we just add to the category descriptions that these are places for draft and discussion and not just completed works.
