Just a few days ago Github announced their new update of Github Issues. You can see the updates with some screenshots from here. Also, please take a look at the new Deployment API if you haven’t already.
Move beyond the simple Issues
Starting at the same day something else were released, not by GitHub, but still connected to Issues. Let me show you, how you can use a chain of tools to make your GitHub Issues even more useful for your team.
Imagine you have a website, that is hosted on Github, like this one, which is the code-base for input.mozilla.com.
Let’s also imagine that you have a team or a community which is handling bug-requests. You have a designer and a programmer at least.
These days being a developer isn’t an easy task. Among all the tasks and challenges you already have to deal with, you need to deal with bugs. And here’s the rub, most of the time bugs, specifically client-side bugs, are submitted by end-users. We see 3 key problems with this:
1: Most Users Are Not Tech Savvy
It’s true and whilst we not say it to them directly, we know it. The user knows something’s wrong, because the website is not working for them, but they don’t know why, how to fix it or how to report it.
It all started again with a tweet:
We have a person that knows something about the Internet and what is a website and this person should follow a test plan or just to do random testing.
Like a true beer-lover I keep an eye on what is going on with beer startups around me. In Europe. The first stop for a research like that should be my friends, but unfortunately I decided to start by visiting “Craft Beer” category on Angel.co – It was a disaster. 3 out of 5 statups were with non-existing websites, one of them was hosted at Wix and only one was actually able to give me the information I needed.
Actually I heard about it on producthunt.co just a few minutes before browsing angel.co. So here is my list and my comments. Feel free to add comments or to add more startups. I’d love to share it with a broader audience.
It all started a few weeks ago when we were having our Friday online standup.
Our Perg team opened a couple of beers to celebrate a really hard week. During this meeting the idea came up – why don’t we create an event where people like us – startupers, can grab a beer (or juice) and share some moments from their week – ideas, troubles, little victories or just get in touch with fellow colleagues.
This is how StartupBeer was born.
Visual Design Thinking (VDT) is an organic and holistic methodology for co-designed and successful visual projects.
#VDT is a balanced mix of:
- Visual design
With a hint of vanilla design and, of course, cinnamon.
In this webinar we are going to open our tool box to develop responsive visual strategies, design user centered projects, services or products respecting both your client and his/her users.
I am not sure how to begin this. We are a team of developers, designers and …well, a team of geeks. We love being part of a crowd and to contribute to the community of people like us.
That’s why we are helping some events this year to be even more awesome and will continue to do so as good as we can.
A ground-shaking festival for Front-end Developers, UI/UX Designers and Web ninjas! If you are brave enough to join as a lightning talk speaker – you will receive a gift from Usersnap. <- That’s us 🙂
At first glance – nothing. These are the names of two of our upcoming live webinars. Yes, Usersap goes live, together with a bunch of awesome people.
