AX-S Widget Demonstrator – Update

leave a comment »

There has been some initial complications converting the original ASAP functionality from XCRI-CAP 1.1 to 1.2 which, coupled with the work reloading the thesaurus data and processing the new JACS codes, has meant focus has been on the ASAP backend over the website at the moment. The match & search functionality is almost complete now and once it is complete it should be quicker overall to complete the website development than previously expected. The first, internal, iteration of the website is currently being finalised.

Next steps:

  • Complete the work to load and match the XCRI-CAP course data to the updated thesaurus
  • Finish first iteration of website, end of Oct/start of Nov
  • Complete testing, end of November
  • Complete documentation, end of November

Essen Games Fair and the Czech Republic

leave a comment »

APS Ltd will be taking a short hiatus in a couple of weeks to attend the Essen Games Fair (Spiel ’12)  in Germany.

This yearly event is the biggest event celebrating all forms of offline gaming in Europe.  Board games, card games, role play games: even comics and life size foosball get a look in.  APS will be attending in the guise of our sister company Surprised Stare Games, headed by Alan Paull and Tony Boydell.

Alan and Charlie will then be off to the Czech Republic where Alan will be heading up a two day workshop for the School for Transformative Leadership, Palacky University in Olomouc on Systems Thinking through Playing Strategy Games, artfully blending his knowledge and expertise from APS Ltd with one of his great loves: strategy games.

APS Ltd will not be available from 17th to 22nd October.  I will be manning the phones and emails while Alan and Charlie are away in the Czech Republic and can be contacted on 01480 433689 or Jennifer@alanpaull.co.uk.

leave a comment »

The OU data has been converted to XCRI-CAP 1.2 from 1.1 and coded up with JACS3 codes and the thesaurus has also been updated to JACS3 and now work is well under way on the first iteration of development for the AX-S Widget demonstrator.

Testing on the first iteration of the functionality should begin in early November with successive iterations and testing throughout November.

Next steps:

  • Finish first iteration by end of October
  • First round of testing early November.
