Subject Re: Creating an ASF Project Game Application ?
Date Tue, 31 Oct 2017 13:09:26 GMT
Excellent ideas!  My one point is being sure that whatever
question/answer tool we come up with is 1) very easy to maintain, and 2)
data driven, so people can work on questions separately from the code.

For "how many committers are at the ASF", someone should be able to
write a data file that has the question, then has some binning numbers
(i.e. by 500's or something).  A user picks 5000-5500, and then the
answer comes back 6000-6500 (actual number: gotten from JSON file).

Also - what Apache project has a logo that's just a brown three-headed
dog?  We couldn't figure that one out at ATO2017.

So for example, it would display a project logo (or part of one)  and see if people can match
the logo with the correct Apache project. (Of course those projects with their name in the
logo might need to have it blanked out or it might be a little too easy...).
