After my last post, promising (mainly to myself) that I’d blog more, I asked on Twitter what should be On Deck, so to speak.
I’ve decided I’m going to focus first on thoughts about user experience design, and related team/project stuff, since that’s what I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about of late.
I’ll probably do some posts about resumes and job hunting soon, and that may (at my sole discretion) include some thoughts about what it was like to work at Microsoft. I’ll also definitely touch either directly or tangentially on software development lifecycle, and team dynamics issues.
But mostly what I’m interested in – for many years now – is great software, with great user experience, and engineering practices that enable its creation and ongoing evolution.
So… Stay tuned… Thanks!
Ps. New Tagline and About text. Let me know what you think…
Commenting here just to make sure the Comment Server doesn’t go to waste…
Glad to see you blogging again. This is motivating me to do the same. You mentioned some Manila changes you made. Would love to find a way to play with UserTalk again. Count me in for a skunkworks project if you put one together.
Thanks, Steve. (And “Hi!”)
The changes I made in Manila were to get it, and the admin site, to play nice in the OPML Editor and its instance of mainResponder. I have a long list of things I’d like to fix there, but right now regular work, and learning Cocoa/iOS programming are taking priority over that effort.
My help would be on the UserTalk end and a fun way for me to unwind. Let me know if I can help…
Any help is appreciated. As you know, I added you to my Trello board, so let’s coordinate there.
(For anyone else who happens to see this, if you’re interested in participating or observing, drop me a line and I’ll hook you up.)
