FTN1: Intro Version: 1.0 Date: 2014-09-06 Copyright: 2014 FutoIn Project (http://futoin.org) Authors: Andrey Galkin
FutoIn originally stays for Full Automation Interface.
The idea of "Full Automation Interface" was born in scope of enterprise integration demand focusing on usage of modern to the moment Web patterns. Quickly, the idea got further evolved to be used in rapidly changing Web world as well. The major focus is on defining requirements, assumed processes and interoperability interfaces for modularization on any level.
Of course, there are plenty of technology companies with advanced proprietary API features, but only some of them are really standardized and open to public. User, Developers, Owners and even Governments become locked in technology stack provided by large companies.
The ultimate goal is not only to define standards, but also to provide production-ready reference implementation, which can be used in proprietary solutions.
There are existing solutions, but they get bloated, redundant and overweighted with backward compatibility over time. However, the main answer is "just for fun" and "for experience". There is no reasonable economical or practical justification. The project is just "yet another alternative" in many cases. However, this effort becomes meaningful in scope of larger programs not limited to IT.
De facto, English in IT has become the same as what Latin is in Medicine. Therefore, I see no reason for translations in this project. National-based fragmentation just provides enormous overhead and does not make developers closer. This project unifies human communication interfaces in IT as well. Note: and, just for clarity, I am not native English speaker.
