Organisation

Survey™ Project is run by W3DevPro™ as part of a BDFL governance structure. BDFL stands for “Benevolent Dictator for Life”. Under this structure, one person (usually the initial author of the project) has final say on all major project decisions. 

Ambitions are to get more people involved. To get some idea of the talents needed see below (an 'outdated' Prince II based structure now that scrum and agile are all the rage of course).

Should you feel inspired or challenged to contribute or fulfill one of the teams or areas of expertise feel free to apply and send us a message and explain what you would like contribute to the project:
