“Can’t have bugs if you don’t know what the intended behavior is.”

What we did:

  • Planned out another two-week cycle’s worth of work for a client.
  • Interviewed 3 users of our system to research future functionality and get feedback on software we’ve delivered.
  • Attended Code for America Summit.
  • Entirely completed the iOS Feature Parity epic for a client (for now, until the iOS team finds more stuff they need).
  • Played Tears of the Kingdom.
  • Learned how to use Stimulus action parameters.
  • Created an autosave feature.
  • Rapidly designed a dashboard for a CRM that is showcasing email performance. Preparing for a presentation in Washington DC. 
  • Presented a plan of approach on visual strategy after explicitly defining goals for improvements to the use of color, typography, UI components in a nascent design system.
  • Nicely refactored pricing grid collections for Group Collect Ops that fixed some mistakes, made it more performant, and kept all specs passing.
  • Created another handy custom form builder helper backed by a ViewComponent to handle number inputs that have a text value that needs to singularize/pluralize on change.
