Getting Better in Product Development (A Personal Narrative)

In his latest post Avi mentioned that we are getting better with estimating and managing our workload. I can confirm this is all true; we learned a lot in the last couple of years and we keep learning. I decided to share some of the most important steps in my workflow as a product manager; things I'm doing better than before and things I intend to do even better. Before I start I'd like to make it clear that we are an agency. In most of the times…


Road Bumps in Project Management Pt. 2

Last week my colleague and friend Ivo wrote a short piece about his experiences in project management. I decided to do a second instalment, but in this article I'll focus on internal issues mainly.

However, I feel like the things I'm going to talk might come useful in the offline world and not only for project managers. Then this little write-up doesn't even intend…

We started off by formulating all the content for the website before doing any design or writing a single line of code.…

With all of its challenges, we love this setup and wouldn’t change it for something else. This year we made a big leap forward with the collaboration of our development team. I decided to list some of the things that work for us. 1. Git. Git is an open-source distributed ver…
