Max: “The Gravitron I LOVE, I could just fall asleep in it.”
Yossef: “It’s like the biggest weighted blanket.”

Interested in attending Flagrant’s Dev Roundtable or our Design Community? Drop us a note via Contact!

What we did:

  • Continued loving ViewComponents and adding responsive nested table support.
  • Set up some structure around our Dev Round Table, to get topics set up for upcoming sessions

    • Extended an invitation to another external person, technically invited by a current external person (technically external, but actually alumnus Casey Brant). Community connection works!
  • Brainstormed brand names and decided on a general brand strategy for our customer’s emerging product
  • Conducted interviews with stakeholders for design research.
  • Caught up with:

    • John McCaffrey
    • Renée Hendricksen
    • Andrew Verboncouer, CEO of Headway
    • Paul Campbell, CEO of Tito
    • Michael “Doc” Norton
    • Nick Whitmoyer
    • Brooke Saucier
    • Jim Suchy
  • Deployed an application to a client friendly sandbox environment. 
  • Fixed a client problem related to users having multiple tabs open with an “upsert” action (rather than separate create and update actions)
