Redmine › Contact Form: Will drop the “Project” field

Added by 11 years ago

It’s not a secret that all of my plugins I wrote initially for myself. The contact form was one of them.

I have many plugins on my site so I need the “Project” field to determine what project a request is related to. But this is not a common situation perhaps and I guess there are users who do not need the “Project” field?.. For example, if there is only one project on site or if projects are not visible.

Причини звільнення з Softjourn (2 comments)

Added by 11 years ago

Якщо взяти “сухі факти” (без особистого), то причини, чому я пішов з Softjourn, наступні (у дужках наводжу “приклади”, які добре відомі співробітникам цієї фірми чи можуть бути без особливих проблем перевірені):

Моя історія роботи в Softjourn (1 comment)

Added by 11 years ago

Щось “не так” з Softjourn було з самого початку, коли я туди прийшов. Наприклад, першим трьом співробітникам (я не серед них!) обіцяли відсоток від прибутку компанії і високі посади. Але в результаті – одного з них змусили звільнитись, а другого вигнали без попередження (як і Льошу, мого товариша та одного з менеджерів проектів). (Третій пішов з цієї фірми вже після мого звільнення.) Коли Вася К. (давній друг Фіцака та один з топ-менеджерів на час мого звільнення) прийшов у фірму, двоє з них ще працювали, однак його зробили тім лідом незважаючи на обіцянки і на те, що Вася не знав ні проекту, ні, навіть, PHP. Однак фірма була ще дуже молодою і я “повівся” на “щирість” і “відкритість” Сергія (Фіцака, директора фірми) і вирішив, що ситуацію можна буде змінити…

A story of my work at Softjourn

Added by 11 years ago

Softjourn is a small IT outsourcing company with the development center located in Western Ukraine.

In fact, I always felt that there was something wrong with Softjourn. In particular, this could be seen in the story of its first three employees, who were promised to receive leading positions and good compensation in future. Instead, one of them was forced to leave. Another one was fired without any prior notice. And the last one left the company in some time after I did. Despite the promises, when Vasyl, an old friend of Sergiy Fitsak, entered the company, two of them were still employed, but this was Vasyl, who received the new position of team lead at their project. And he was not familiar with the project and even with PHP (the language, the project used). However, the company was very young and I got deceived by the “sincerity” and “openness” of Sergiy, the managing director of the company, having assumed, that the situation could be improved…

Projects: The Rename

Added by 11 years ago

Some time ago I wrote the Project Alias plugin which allowed adding project identifier aliases and choosing one of aliases as a project identifier (that is renaming identifiers). I wrote it to fix identifiers of my projects. The most glaring example why I wanted to do this is the SCM Creator plugin which has identifier svn (for historical reasons)…

Recently I also added support for the identifiers renaming to the SCM Creator itself (it needed to rename repositories for Redmine.pm to work)… So now I can rename identifiers!.. And by these news I’m notifying you that I’m going to do this!

Going OpenID

Added by 12 years ago

I definitely want more feedback from users! Only a little issues are reported by others (not me)… Only a little votes were added since the site launch… I guess this is because no one wants to have another account on another site. That’s why I needed OpenID.

It is officially believed that Redmine does support OpenID. But “for some reason” I could not get it to work!.. And that’s not only me (see this and this). So had spent some time for it I found the reason and the solution!
