alpha and beta Prototypes
We are closing in on our initial prototype; we are on track to demonstrate it in about 2 weeks - hoping all goes well!
With the initial prototype we will demonstrate the functionality. We are now planning the next phase of the prototype where users will be able to experience the functionality.
In thinking about the next phase, it has become more obvious, that the initial prototype should be characterized as an "alpha" prototype. And the next phase can then be described as the "beta" prototype. So, we are now going to refer to them in these terms; alpha prototype and beta prototype. Our alpha is right around the corner...
