Hi Ben, I checked your "semi-random polygon drawing tool" and it's really cool! Thanks for sharing it. I tried to find the iPad App but with no luck so far. Please, give me a hint how I get your tool on my iPad. Thanks a lot for the time and effort and keep up the good work! -Stefan
You can use the web version on your tablet or smartphone!
We celebrated a very specific anniversary this week:
A lot of the team has been traveling (or having a baby!!!) over the past couple of weeks but almost everyone is back now. We’ve been pushing like crazy on “El Grande Burrito” and we’re now THREE WEEKS out from finishing the project.
We welcomed our newest team member, Paulette, this week. She’s going to be project managing, kicking ass, and keeping everyone on track.
Our node-slack module - a nodejs module for sending and receiving messages from Slack - got an update! Check out Ben’s work on that here. Thanks to Ben’s module, Slack sent our team socks!
Eric was a writing machine this week. He wrote a great article on the differences between a product and project manager. He spoke at Refresh Austin on the same topic, and submitted a panel idea for SXSW 2015. (There are only two weeks left to submit ideas!) And in between all of that, he’s been transitioning our clients over to the newest version of Packagr.
AngularJS wowed the team again this week with its form validation tools. Like many other things that Angular just does for us, its form validation tools are built-in and active by default, and provide most of the functionality we need. So by using Angular, we get sensible, useful form validation that not only works but provides a clear path to future functionality that’ll be coming to browsers in the near future.
I imported all of the images that have been sitting on my iPad since 2012. As the photos flowed in, it was like watching Zelda grow up again. I also found a bunch of my favorite art experiments from a few years ago.
“One can easily say that Packagr enables a publisher’s editorial vision to more easily live in new realms, giving it a longer shelf life and enabling publishers to use curation as a tool to create new products out of their current material.”—Macala Wright for PSFK on XOXCO’s multi-format publishing tool, Packagr.
Not to mention the fact that he apparently misunderstands how doctors work - by physically examining their patients. If I am wearing VR goggles and the doctor is wearing VR goggles, neither of us can actually see the problem.
Using IFTTT, I made a Tumblr blog that automatically collects anything I fave on Instagram, Tumblr or Twitter, reposting it back into my Tumblr feed to enjoy again, and providing me a way to appreciate the photos and articles in a more relaxed (and larger screened) environment.
