Week 330

With the big push I report­ed on last week behind us, we took it easy in week 330. Alper took some time off and head­ed to Ams­ter­dam where he checked out some new spots for Cup­pings. He also con­tin­ued to take care of Bycatch ful­fil­ment. I fin­ished our work with State of Flux on project […]

Week 324–325

Rolling two weeks into one for these notes, ‘because rea­sons.’ We com­plet­ed what is offi­cial­ly the last sprint on Free Birds, get­ting every­thing in ship shape. We now have a ‘gold mas­ter’ sit­ting ready for release, which will hap­pen at the client’s ear­li­est con­ve­nience. On project HENDO, we mapped State of Flux’s cur­rent process so […]

Week 323

This was an impor­tant week for Free Birds. We reviewed the lat­est sprint with the client and sub­se­quent­ly released the release can­di­date (I know!). Only one more sprint to go before we can “go gold”. We also planned this next and final sprint and received a green light soon after. Mean­while we made a care­ful […]

We’re get­ting real­ly close to the fin­ish line now and its a plea­sure to be able to tune and tweak things to make them just right. I […]

On Tues­day, I head­ed to Nijmegen to close off project KOKORO with the client. KOKORO is a dig­i­tal coach for ado­les­cent men­tal health. We reviewed the […]

Week 318

Let’s start at the end. On Thurs­day and Fri­day I par­tic­i­pat­ed in a two-day work­shop on the future of ener­gy at Free­dom­Lab. Mean­while, Alper moved apart­ments. I learned a lot about the nuts and bolts of our ener­gy sys­tem and came away opti­mistic about the switch to renew­ables. Alper learned a lot about how to […]
