PMDG - How you communicate among each other?

Recommended Posts

Hello PMDG-Team!As far as I know some (or all?) members of PMDG do not live in the nearer neighbourhood. So i am wondering how you communicate and handle the business meetings. Therefore I (or we) would like to know:- How far you live away from each other?- How you communicate usually? Traditional via Skype, Mail etc.?- How often do the PMDG members meet personally?- Does the huge (is it huge?) distance effect the working speed?

Last I heard, Vin prefers to use smoke signals, while Robet and Ryan prefer to go with morse code and the ocassional use of the carrier pigeons for media transfer.Sean Campbell

I saw a letterpigeon fly by my window with the release candidate, so they sure are up to something!

I'm not sure if everyone has Internet access time, so I'm pretty sure they are using carrier pigeons.... :(

Most of the time they communicate through the medium of interpretive dance, or mime.Since it is a Next Generation 737 they are working on, they have on occasion been known to use the Tamarian metaphorical language from Star Trek: The Next Generation (after which the NG was indeed named), for example: 'the 737 at Tegucigalpa, his throttles wide open.'Al

Sorry, but what´s wrong with you all?? That was a normal question? I think the communication is very difficult since they live far away from each other!I think there are much more stupid questions in this forum!!

To be honest, I think that old adage "ask a silly question, get a silly answer" may apply Just%20Kidding.gif. Please understand I'm not trying to be insulting.I think it is a safe bet they will mostly communicate electronically, via email/forums/Skype. I say this because I work with another developer group and that is how we communicate out of the public eye.If you do a search on this forum and look for a article some months back about what their workstations looked like; I think communication got brought up in there as well.RegardsCraig Baillie

Communication difficult? For us is easy and we are a third world country.

We use several mediums - Email, skype, MSN, phone calls/text, and actual in-person meetings in several cases. (myself, RSR, Paul, and Vin were there for the photo survey for instance)

Thank you Ryan for your fair reply!I was just wondering that you all can produce such a high quality bird though you have - let´s call them - communication limitations. Because personal meetings - which take place once in a blue moon - are always better than any other medium such as Skype or MSN. I do not know why the others tease me because as I said it´s probably quite difficult to work together. I know that from my study. You cannot say: "Robert, take a look on my results immediately". Because Robert or other members are at work and then it will be evening or days later until someone can give an constructive criticism. Am I right?

Well do you all end up having any hard communication challenges? What are they, if any? And what do you all do to cope with them? It seems very interesting to me that you all can live so far away and still be able to do this.

I dont understand what you and the OP think the communication challenges are when you have modern technology like Ryan mentioned. It's not very hard to upload stuff to their servers, send and receive email, talk on the phone or via Skype, etc. I can see the challenges if this were 20 years ago, but in this day and age it doesn't seem like there is much difficulty, aside from the fact that they are in a lot of different time zones and some maybe sleeping while others are awake.Sean Campbell

You also left out wonderful things like TeamViewer and remote desktop, where you can actually see what someone else is doing in real time. Modern technology does nothing but foster communication across the globe.

Difficulties in communication? Nah, we are pretty hi-tech when it comes to working together as a team, what Ryan said, MSN, Skype, iPhones, etc. The only challenge we sometimes have is different time zones but generally the majority of time we get things done when it has to be done, nothing is impossible in today's technology age.Cheers,

How could you hate the original droid, I have the droid 2 which was given to me under best buy black tie protection, I would gladly take my original back. Back to the topic.
