AV EcoSystem Review Tweaking Getting Started

Oct 16

Busy weekend and errands this morning mean I’m late to the blogface again, but perhaps that’s a good excuse to just focus on tweaking the “Getting Started” page, rather than building a middleman site as a performant home page replacement. I start...

Oct 13

how do you get started

So, too much food and a late night means I’m late to the blog-face again. There’s also the Slack and email messages that somehow distracted me too … let’s think about some of the sources of folks coming to our site:

Oct 12

Right, time to get back up to the big picture. What I’ve been meaning to do for a while is try and draw the flow of folks exposure to AgileVentures through to varying levels of engagement. I wanted to start by embedding some images of the ads we...

AV EcoSystem Review Late to the Blogface

Oct 11

Back to Front

Oct 4

regression testing

I’ve got the RSpec unit(?) tests green for the new version of the WSO Slack Service that takes the AgileBot microservice completely out of the picture. I start the day by merging the latest from develop, which is a gem bump from dependabot (I have...

AV EcoSystem Review Rumours of AgileBots Demise

Oct 3


Early to bed and early to rise makes a man … do a 5K jog to the top of the nearest hill and get to the computer early to start working on tests of the new rubyfied agilebot. I start by pulling the latest from develop and merging to my local branch...
