Presenter: Kenneth Larsen - Utah State University
Loved this presentation and am excited about the sneak peak at Kennethware 3.0. firstname.lastname@example.org, we already use KW 2.0 and was wondering about backwards compatibility. Will 3.0 undo what we've done with 2.0? Will we have to run 2.0 and 3.0 simultaneously? Would love just a bit of insight into your thinking for those who already use your wonderful product.
In regards to compatibility, I design these tools for USU which has hundreds of courses and thousands of content pages that were created using 1.0, 2.0 and code that predates both. As I make changes, I always try to make them backwards compatible. I also write in functions that will update older code to the newer format when a page is edited. It may not cover every eventuality, but as we identify those it doesn't correct, I update the code to account for it. So as long as you didn't dig into the core files of 2.0 and make changes, 3.0 should work just fine.
