These days we are witnessing an important moment in Haiku’s life, the release of R1Beta1.
Before the release, I came up with something that did not have enough time to finish prior to the release:
Actually, the idea was talking to the devs, and release the teaser prior to the beta, but… timing… Anyway.
Now I saw that R1Beta2 is due for October 1st 2019. I think, my personal opinion, that matching Haiku releases with the arrival of autumn is a good marketing approach. Leaves coming down to earth, so does Haiku. This on the northern hemisphere. It also makes sense on the southern hemisphere, as when autumn starts on the northern, spring comes on the southern, leaves start to grow on the southern, which also leads to good teaser approaches (I’ve already thought of some too).
I don’t pretend to do any evangelism, I stopped doing that long ago (live and let live), but promoting Haiku outside is also important in order to reach a broader audience. Yes, stability first, I know… But we all, devs and the comunity, are getting there.
I wish I could have done the teaser on Haiku and add “made with Haiku” at the bottom, but I guess I’ll have to wait and work harder on the tasks I set on my task list.
Hope I can finish the next idea before the next event.
