Chosen People Answers has been under active development since 2015. Work is ongoing, but there is much to be done before the site can be launched. There are many moving parts that must come together before we’re ready to go.

Chosen People Answers has a set goal for launching, called a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). The road to reaching that goal involves:

  • Alpha phase – initial development work to complete the features of the task
  • Beta phase – bugtesting, stress-testing, and live internal community testing
  • Launching the site

We are currently in the middle of the Alpha phase. Below is a report showing the tasks completed and yet to do:
