I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
37 Signals is not a startup. We have been around since, like, 1999. We actually make tools that people want. That rules out 80% of startups.
So, I started to run out of battery. Therefore, I could not do any more posts from MinneBar…
All in all, it was a fantastic event. The session on co-working was tres useful and I think we might be able to band together and come up with some ideas moving forward.
Of course, I would be a fool if I did not mention how cool the session with David Heinemeier Hansson of 37 Signals fame was. He was confident and opinionated and a no nonsense sort of guy. He had lots of interesting perspectives on programming, startups and what it is like to build simple products that solve real world spaces.
Just learning a little bit about Ajax. One of the advantages of using ajax in your web development is that it increases perceived responsiveness of your web applications. This results in increased productivity, ease of use and, therefore, improved user experience. The downsides; makes tracking web statistics more difficult, ditto for search engine indexing and, ditto for accessibility (for the disabled).
