Sneak Preview III

PTBatcher is the result of three months work of Google Summer of Code 2008 student Marko Kuder and his mentor Zoran Mesec, himself a student last year. Behind the simple interface there are a lot of details and Marko got them pretty well right.

With PTBatcher I can set up all of my stitching projects and go home while the computer works on them overnight. Or run it on a second machine dedicated to stitching on a network, possibly accessed remotely to keep the noise and heat of high-power machines away from my desk.

What I liked particularly about this project is the progression of Zoran from student to mentor. Also the fact that the two of them are at the same university and have real life contact. In these days of ever growing bandwidth and groupware there is still an element that no technology will replace in the near future: real human contact. Once a relationship is established, technology is a great enabler, but there is still nothing as good as a handshake and sharing a meal or a drink. Maybe this is the beginning of a tradition, and in 2009 we will see another student in this lineage?

Coming soon to Hugin.
