You might have guessed that we have big plans for Ultibo and what it can become. Our goal is to create a platform where the only limit is your imagination, where the technology doesn’t stand in your way or force you to compromise your ideas.
Of course we realise (and we hope you do too) that this doesn’t happen overnight, creating something truly different takes time, effort and a fairly large serve of determination.
A good example of this is some recent fine tuning we’ve been doing on the critical file system and network subsystems in Ultibo, it might sound rather glamorous and even exciting but in reality it amounts to hours and hours of looking at packet captures and debug logs just to improve performance by a few percent or implement the correct behaviour in response to unusual cases.
It’s been a while since our last commit and those with a shorter attention span may have wondered if we’d simply chucked it in but the truth is good things take a little while to get right.
The same applies to your projects, some of you have ambitious goals, some are tinkering just for fun and others are using Ultibo for learning. Whatever our goal we are all learning every day and it is the simple act of taking each step towards a goal that helps us learn how to take the next one.
Some days will be exciting, others will be frustrating and occasionally it might seem like the goal is just beyond your reach. If you make learning a natural part of everything you do then no goal will ever be too big.
An ancient proverb says that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, sometimes there doesn’t seem to be a map of how to reach our destination but if we simply put one foot in front of the other then we’ll get there in the end.
You could try to move both feet at once but you’d probably just fall over.
