    Time Tracking in ThetaBoard with Harvest

    Mar. 24th, 2013 / Project Management Time Tracking Harvest

    HarvestThetaBoard is designed to be simple enough that you can use it to manage any kind of project. That being said, most of our users are in the IT industry and use ThetaBoard to manage software development projects. One of the most requested features has been the ability to track time at the Card level. To make sure ThetaBoard doesn't get too bloated, we wanted to make sure that if we did add it, that it would not get in the way.

    Harvest

    Harvest is an excellent time tracking service that we use at ThetaBoard. It's simple to use and very powerful and offer a great tool--the Harvest Platform--that allowed us to add time tracking to ThetaBoard in a very unobtrusive way.

    One of ThetaBoard's most frequestly requested feature is the ability to link from a Card to a separate Board. We are really excited about Linked Boards--we think it's going to really help you manage your organization.

    Linked BoardsAt ThetaBoard, I have a Master Board which I have split into different columns--one for each area of the company I want to improve. Under each of these categories, I have identified a number of different performance indicators (KPIs) and identified several large projects that I think will help me reach my goals. Each of these projects goes on my Master Board as a Card.

    The Idea Wringer: Choosing an Idea for a Bootstrapped Side Project

    Apr. 13th, 2012 / Startups Entreprenuership Bootstrapping

    WringerLike many of you, I aspire to create a business. I want to build an idea into a real company with real profits that pays the bills and provides me with a certain amount of financial freedom. However, I'm not rich and I have no desire to pitch an potential idea to angels. That leaves me in a very common position--working a day job and trying to start a business in my nights and weekends.

    I've been in this position for the last 10 years or so. I've tried to start cool projects (an online jukebox), social projects (a Top 5/list sharing app), useful projects (bug trackers), and have come up with countless ideas that never made it out of the idea stage. My current project ThetaBoard is still in alpha/demo mode but it's getting used, generating interest and I'm certain it will be a success.

    Hacker News Frontpage Post-mortem

    Apr. 10th, 2012 / Hacker News Marketing Blog Twitter

    I always find these posts on Hacker News interesting so here's a post-mortem of the traffic generated by a post that spent a day on the frontpage of Hacker News.

    Last Thursday I made a post on Hacker News titled "Client-Side Error Logging With Google Analytics" and submitted it on Hacker News. The post was inspired by an idea in a discussion about the importance of logging client-side errors. The post got to #1 or #2 on the front page and stayed on the front page for nearly a day.

    I was definitely surprised by the traffic that the post generated. Thursday and Friday, the post got a total of 12,295 visits and 14,403 pageviews. Nearly 7K of the visitors were direct referrals from HN.
