Sharing SlopeRules

By -

You may recall in SlopeRules‘ brief lifetime that I’ve made the comparison between it and the first word processor. The first release we created, Version 0.1, was sort of like a word processor that couldn’t save or print. We improved it enough afterward to get it to the “it can save files” point.

I am delighted today to announce that we’re at the “it can print, too!” stage. That is, this thing is actually getting much more powerful. Now it can share.

The notion of “sharing” in SlopeRules is like a two-sided coin. You can share any SlopeRules set you’ve created with the entire community of Slopers. You can also, on the flip side, copy any SlopeRules which others have made public. The community as a whole contributes to the rule sets available and, over time, can help each other build out superior algorithms.
