“It’s like /dev/null, but for people.”

What we did:

  • Released a new episode of Dev Roundtable on our Youtube!
  • Checked in with our earliest adopter
  • Translated our collaborative sketching from our on-site into slightly-higher fidelity versions
  • Began to wind down the most anxiety-inducing part of discovery driving our third epicycle. Began working on those designs and features we’re most confident in — and listing the hypotheses driving our efforts.
  • Started some informal descriptive/explanatory research: Took a closer look at how users currently solve one of the problems we aim to solve this epicycle.
  • Created micro animations to show how an email platform will work for a clients marketing site
  • Spun up and began creating the Madison+ Ruby website for announcing the conference and sell tickets
  • Wrote a series of ADRs on form submission
  • Wrote a draft blog post on polling with Turbo Frames. 
  • Opened PR’s that allow Training Tracker exports to occur within background jobs  
  • Created signage for RubyConf San Diego
  • Working on the sponsorship prospectus for RailsConf Detroit 2024
  • Created styling for a checkbox with Tailwind to mask it as a toggle switch
