Working for a start up means a ton of hard work, and the ability to soak up everything everyone has ever shared with you about the product, turn that into something functional and add a little bit of wow factor. All in all, it is pretty much like riding a rollercoaster while you’re trying to balance an apple on your head… and send emails (via Jott, of course!) all at the same time.
The best part of all of it is really when you get to meet people who use Jott. That’s why Tuesday night was such a great experience for everyone here. For the first time, Shree’s idea of having a Jott User Group came to fruition and it was fantastic! Thanks so much to everyone who participated for taking time on a week night to come talk to us. We cannot wait till we can put into practice the great feedback we got.
Here’s little run down of the whole thing…
4:00- Evan and I run to Trader Joe’s and pick out everything we think is yummy.
4:45- We get back to the office, Doug reports that our food selection is “healthy” but approves.
5:10- Time to clean up, set up, and get ready! Tim takes out the trash. (Thanks Tim!)
5:30- People start trickling in and conversations start.
6:00- We move into our conference room and Shree gives a little presentation of fun things to come.
6:32- Conversation really gets going. I keep scribbling notes and notice the dev team has attacked the snack table.
6:33- Evan leans over and says “The dev team has attacked the snack table.”
7:00- Can’t believe how fast the time is going. Feedback is flying from all directions.
7:30- We wrap things up and say goodnight.
We’ll be doing this again in the future, so if you are interested in participating let us know! Thanks again to everyone who came and for those of you who couldn’t make it- there is always email@example.com, or the blog, where you can share what you’d like to see, how we need to change, and the ways you love to use Jott. And be sure to stay tuned to see what great improvements came out of JUG!
