Last november, I experienced the first Codapalooza as part of team Sosoft. This was the first event of its kind in Montreal. And it was amazing! Xavier already shared our experience as a team.

It was so much fun coding day and night in ruby using Rails 3 that we decided to carry on with the development of Hibou. Hibou is a social software designed to help community daycare centers manage their day-to-day operations. What do I mean by social software? Hibou is charity work, which has been driven by the will to help out Carrefour péri-naissance de St-Eustache.

Following the Codapalooza, we spent some of our spare time to give the application a decent look and feel and pack a bit more features. The latest Hibou is now available on Heroku. We’ve also made the source code available on Github. I plan to talk about what we’ve learned in a near future.

The next step now is to release version 1.0 of Hibou so that Carrefour péri-naissance can start using Hibou on a daily basis. You can track our progress on our product backlog. One thing you’ll probably notice is that it’s a bug-free backlog. Want to know more about bug-free backlogs? Nicholas blogged extensively about it here, here and here.
