AV EcoSystem Review Beta Release Deadline

Jan 5


Okay, so I’m up against the deadline for the beta release of the APSoc membership database. The timeline I gave them at the beginning of the project was:

  • by Dec 8th - screenshots of membership database interface for you to approve

AV EcoSystem Review Regular Backups

Jan 4


So leaving it overnight has not magically fixed the corrupted database file, and it seems I’ve lost several hours work from the last few days, and I can’t figure out any easy way to recover it. Brent was suggesting git, but the annoying thing about...

AV EcoSystem Review Task Switching

task switching

They say that task switching is bad for getting things done. Clearly some tasks require more concentration, but then there’s also the issue of getting bored with the task at hand. There’s also the issue of switching between documenting (blogging...

AV EcoSystem Review New Year Same Conflicts

Jan 2

new year

The start of a new year; some of the same conflicts remaining, though. Leaving off from the last week of last year, I really want to adjust our Premium membership domain model to more accurately reflect the way in which members upgrade and downgrade...

AV EcoSystem Review Digging into Premium Data

Dec 19

digging in

Yesterday I got stuck in to reviewing the Premium data from our API. It was slow going, but at least I started. Hoping I can plow through a chunk today. Starting with our first ever Premium member, I reach out them to say hi and check how they...

AV EcoSystem Review Back To Premium Analysis

Dec 18

premium stats back

So there’s feedback from the APSoc client, and clearly some more work to do on the LibreOffice Base application, but I don’t think I can delay a review of the AV Premium members. I used to be doing weekly reach outs, but with the new pairing and...

AV EcoSystem Review Recording Help Videos

Dec 15

camera recording

So I must be several weeks (months even?) and several layers of procrastination out from actually reviewing the AV ecosystem, since I’m pretty much using my blogging time to get focused work done on client projects and our main website project management...
