GalleryCon 09 Progress Report

As announced last month, the Gallery team has been hacking away on all things Gallery 3 in Santa Fe, New Mexico for the last 2 days. Here's a few things you might be interested in:

  • Photos! - These are just mine and I'll be updating them as the weekend continues, and we'll have a full list of photos once we're all back at home.
  • User Survey Results - Julia, our OpenUsability student for 2009, stopped by to present the results of the user survey that she conducted over the past month which is full of very interesting information.
  • Gallery Trac Timeline - We've found a lot of new bugs and fixed a lot of bugs (including major things with "organize" and contextual menus), and created a bug category for documentation issues. The timeline shows most of the details.
  • Our "team dinner" isn't until tonight, but we've already managed to drink a lot of beer (including local beer made with chili peppers) and eaten a lot of great food.
  • It's been great having a few people that aren't on the core team stop by! Hopefully a few more people will be able to stop by next year.

While we've gotten a lot done, there is still over a full day of coding to go and we're planning on releasing the final beta of Gallery 3 really soon!

The Season of Usability 2009 Gallery survey results are in!

Thank you to everyone who participated. Your input has been valuable.

We had hundreds of responses from users in 49 countries. Did you know...

  • Most users use Gallery for personal purposes (85%), 10% use Gallery for professional reasons, and 5% are developers or supporters.
  • Gallery accounts come in all sizes. Users share anywhere from 3 to 350,000 photos and manage anywhere from 1 to 25,000 user accounts.
  • The vast majority of Gallery users (86%) have an IT education or work in a field that requires IT skills.
  • The five most important qualities in photo management software for our users are: easy to upload photos; good user interface; easy administration; speed of tasks; and easy to set photo permissions.
