This Show & Tell opened with announcements from BOTH co-founders: it is a veritable foundry up in here! First, Danny updated us on our mobile apps. Not only did we just release Harvest for Android 1.6, but a release to our iPhone app with some VERY cool updates is also in the pipeline, and should be out later in the month!
Next, Shawn led a company-wide retrospective on an issue with recurring invoices that affected a small group of our customers: how it happened, why it happened, and what we’ve done to make sure it doesn’t happen again! After that, he gave us another mini-update on the progress of our new Projects section, and announced a special Bugmash week later this month, where some of our developers will be stomping their way through some bugs!
And then the demos! Warwick talked us through Harvest’s security procedures and protocol. I’m afraid I can’t say much more about it, but let’s just say the phrase “undisclosed locations” was used, more than once, in earnest. Arun also gave us an update on Forecast, which is now available as a subscription!
For our Moment of Zen, Katie shared a short, wordless piece on the porters who trek up and down mountains in Peru, reminding us to stay conscious of how other people help us along our way. It’s an easy thing to overlook, but missing it means missing a large part of the beauty of our world. To open eyes, and open hearts!
Every other Friday morning, our entire team gets together for a chat we call Show & Tell. Over the course of an hour, we catch up on project developments and demo our latest works in progress. We end with a Moment of Zen, a three-minute (or less) video selected by a team member.
