One big thing of the year 2013 for the Ball was the master thesis work around it done by Michael Gurschler. The thesis is the first good neutral conclusion around the Ball – and was quite good perspective for things to improve. Many of the things especially related to developer clonability and production environment setup have been greatly improved since Michael set up his own instance for the study.
I’d like to take this opportunity and personally thank Michael for his invaluable work on demystifying the Ball!
This is good conclusion for the year 2013, looking forward to reach whole new set of milestones during 2014!
