"Overcoming repeated failure and attaining success in an open source project"
by Joe Eagar of the Blender "bmesh" project
Joe is a developer with the "Blender" project, a free open source 3D
content creation suite. Joe is spearheading the "bmesh" project, which
is a rewrite of the mesh modeler to allow n-sided polygons and easier,
more flexible modeling workflows.
This talk will present a history of the mesh rewrite project, and how the
failure of the first two attempts were ultimately good for the project.
