Yesterday was a big day for Calcatraz. Here are a few of the highlights:
New Design Launched – I got up at 4am to put the finishing touches to a complete redesign of the site. By the time I had to leave for my day job, it was up and running. I think the design improves significantly on the previous version, but you can judge for yourself at www.calcatraz.com (oh, and let me know what you think using the feedback form…).
User Accounts Launched - On my lunch break I forewent the traditional pub lunch, and took my laptop down to a cafe where I nutted out the last of the code for handling user accounts. Then immediately after work I headed back to the cafe and pushed the code live. So you can now sign up for a free Calcatraz Account which gives you permanent access to your full calculation history and touch-typing history (on the Calculator and Typist apps respectively).
Melbourne Lean Startup Meeting - Calcatraz then took its first steps into the wider world at last night’s lean startup meeting. The night featured awesome talks from the NineFold, RomeToRio and Kaggle guys. It was also great to talk to people doing some really interesting stuff in the startup space, including Peter, Daryl, Jai from UnBaa (a social decision making site), and Anita from TechSeeder. Cheers guys!
So yeah, quite a day overall! P.S. Here’s the new design:
