I see a lot of conversations around Governance, Planning, Roadmap, etc etc. It seems that there is an overhead of communication that might turn the focus of people to unnecessary places.
I would like to know if Symbol is enough stable to start a Minimum Viable Product on top of it.
I’ve seen that there were different releases of Symbol, there were some that contained breaking changes and some that were more like a “soft fork”…? kind of at least.
The only thing that matters to me now is to know that if I start a product on top of Symbol, in a private network for example, will it be enough stable to me, as a developer, to keep working on top of Symbol without worrying about “hard forks”? Only applying soft-forks as they come, with the proper documentation and support.
If so, I consider the project stable enough to be used in non-risk projects, for experimentation and innovation.
If not, and you still think that you will need to apply breaking changes until Symbol is in the main net, then I consider Symbol to not be ready for small projects.
To be honest, I still see a room of improvement for the development and sysadmin experience. I know that Symbol isn’t released yet, but if I had better development and sysadmin experience, having small releases without breaking changes, for me then it’s not a problem if the latest release is at the end of year
Keep working that hard folks!
