I have got 2 days for making a very serious decision about the tools and platforms that my company is going to use in order to port its WPF application to Linux / Android / iOS whatnot.
Obviously I can point to my seniors that 2 days is hardly enough for reading about all possible options, and what about trying, making prototypes etc. I can say it, it won't help me a bit, I have got 2 days, and after 2 days the decision would be made. Period.
From one side I am frustrated, from other side I think there is a grain of truth in this approach, otherwise I can easily find myself buried under dozens of downloaded SDKs, frameworks, APIs, blog articles etc etc doing bench-works, running samples and forgetting in the process what it all was for.
Still I am afraid that a wrong decision will cost the company dearly. So what do you think is an "ideal" process for making such decisions?
