Sprints for the next couple of weeks. Week #1 completed! Lean startup? Handle it with agile methodology.
Two Spartan students, one team!
Kevin and Samantha had just recently joined our team! We all had met up at Hackerdojo and discussed with Kam (CVO) about our upcoming projects. Both are excellent candidates to help us build our product. If you have time, check out Samantha’s blogspot. Kevin on the other hand will help us code in Java. He has 6 years in Java development. Both are SJSU students and just recently finished their finals this week.
Welcome Kevin and Sam to our team! We are glad that you both will help us make decisions and advance into new ideas :)
Below are snapshots of what Samantha did for her portfolio. Visit it!!! Hella nice!!!

A day in SF
As you might know, we are currently looking for an office space in SF, SOMA district. So far the ones that caught our eye most is located on a busy street on Howard and Fremont.
Renting a place to work at is not cheap especially when you have three Asians that are bootstrapping every dollar that passes our eyes. One thing that we are discussing about earlier was necessity vs. luxury. Is having your own work space with super fast internet, free drinks and beer, close to a hundred startups around you a necessity or a luxury?
Does one really need an office space? Well, truthfully for us its a necessity because we hate working at home. It is cheap and yes you can nap between brainstorming sessions, but that gets us too comfortable.
Anyway, just got home from our journey on finding the perfect spot and so far we have picked RocketSpace as our office for the next six months. After that we will move back to the south bay or the Peninsula where it’s closer to our home.
Keep you guys updated on this soon.
Finding the right project manager
We have been working with James, a project manager who we hired on to work with us. Recently, him and his team delivered a superb looking mock up of our main page. He then continued to create our business card layout and now we are having him and his team do the UI/UX design.
We had a conference call with him yesterday night to propose a new concept and functionality of our site to him. He was please and was eager to work with us. What caught us off-guard was that he KNEW exactly what we wanted, repeated it back to us and confirmed with us was it correct!
If anyone is trying to have a project manager or a designer work on your project, make sure they understand everything before doing it! It will save you time, money and stress.
We would say that he did his dues and we are very much eager to work with him on our project.
Did I mention him and his team designed the pages for AirBnB and Etsy?
