How we ran a company-wide design sprint on a core part of our app experience remotely and in record time.
We know these are unprecedented times and this has called for adapting everything about how we work. We want to share the story, learnings, and tips from a recent fully remote design sprint we ran at Tegus.
Many of us in the Tegus Product Organization joined just as COVID-19 shut down all offices in Chicago. This resulted in a good amount of us onboarding remotely into what was a pretty close-knit company and suddenly all working remotely from makeshift home offices. As we spoke to colleagues and friends we realized this was not a unique situation, so we wanted to share some of the things we did and learned to overcome the remote hurdles to move our product forward despite the complexity of the new reality many of us find ourselves in. …
In pursuit of the most perfect Southern Biscuit.
I’ve spent over a year working on combining the collective knowledge of the internet on biscuits and my own experience exploring this simple and exceedingly simple combination of flour, buttermilk, and butter. For readers outside of the USA, biscuits in the USA are a heavenly combination of scones (simple savory cake-like texture) and croissants (butter and flaky layers).
Our goal is flaky biscuits which still have a slightly cake-like texture, a delicious flavor, and crispy top and bottom.
Let’s get to it.
Don’t skimp on anything in this recipe. If you’re looking for a quick, no-frills recipe, I’d suggest the base recipe from which I always work, written by Ann from Cooking Maniac. The steps I outline might take longer to start but will yield an excellent result, and remember you’ll get quicker the more times you make them. …
The story behind a year of successful improvements to our help user experience, the learnings, metrics, and our plans for a bumper 2019.
Every day we need assistance: help finding packages that aren’t delivered, figuring out confusing apps, troubleshooting defective products, you name it. As makers, we’re constantly asking questions. Sometimes we find answers on our own, other times we have to ask humans for guidance. …
How satisfied are developers with the Braintree developer experience?
To answer this question we designed a survey that’s short, clear, and to the point. We want to share some of the survey questions, the reasoning behind them, and how we’re building the survey experience.
In the last few months, we’ve been researching how engineers experience our developer documentation. We know we have work to do. We’ve stacked the backlog chock-a-block with all the things we saw builders like yourself hating and with more of the things we saw you loving. …
We’ve been getting some super duper creative and useful resources. Here are some of our favorites:
🌱Figma and the community have been busy busy busy:
Botching up a change can cost you, time, money or sanity. Let me give you some reasons to quiver in your boots when it comes to making huge irreversible changes. Your changes could:
I think we can all agree that any one of these potential fall outs is worth losing sleep over. This is where testing comes in. …
If you do try it, I have to warn you, it’ll work.
10 minutes. That’s it. 10 minutes. Basic. The time between 11:30 and 11:40. The time it takes to walk half a mile casually. Less than the time it takes to heat a pot of water on a stove.
You can achieve almost anything starting with 10 minutes.
You might very well be ready to close this tab, thinking “You can’t do much at all in 10 minutes, this dude’s cray”, but stick with me.
Fact is, I didn’t even come up with the idea. (Can anyone really actually be credited for such a small basic idea?) I came across it most recently in an audio-guided training run on Nike Plus Run Club. A very smart person → Bill Nye suggests in “Go 20 with Bill Nye” that running for just 10 minutes does fantastic things for your body, health, and happiness. So says science. If you can improve your whole wellbeing with 10 minutes, you could do almost anything, right? …
