JavaLaurence Posted January 10, 2017 at 03:18 PM Share Posted January 10, 2017 at 03:18 PM I seriously frowned when I read these words: "in a three year time frame." Three years sounds unrealistically long. Three years is an eternity in politics and in technology. Such a strategy implies that you impose upon your customers a transition period that is that long. I think 3 years is huge, and a completely wrong period for the kind of products we're talking about, and the kind of company you are. To be frank, it's just plain weird. If, as an alternative, you said "By the end of 2017 we'll have all bricklets converted to the new design".. I for one would be happy to continue thinking of Tinkerforge as a viable ecosystem for current and future projects. But three years? Sorry.. not me. I'll also add that I question why such a massive earthquake is needed? You mentioned the event counter use case.. that's one use case. Have you been inundated by other use case requests from customers that justifies such a major undertaking? What about all your existing customers who are perfectly happy with the current approach, including the fragile connectors? Your proposal means complete backwards and forwards incompatibility. I currently can't see the crystal clear business case for putting yourselves and us (customers) through such a huge change. My 2 cents..
