Harvest Playback, April 7th Edition
This was an unusual week. On Wednesday we had a film crew over at Harvest HQ all morning. We were filmed for a video customer story for Voxel, the awesome hosting company Harvest depends on. Work went on as usual, except that we had cameras following us as if we’re in a reality TV show.
Our product team made great progress this week: an important system security update will be deployed this upcoming Wednesday, the Backbone.js project I mentioned last week is going strong (hope to have a beta release this month), and we’re about to begin an exciting integration, which you’ll be hearing soon.
A week’s worth of random findings, from our Co-op stream:
- Naama found this recent interview with John Pavlus on The Setup, and he said, “I rely on an extremely well-designed webapp called Harvest for my freelance backoffice tasks like time-tracking and invoicing… Harvest is a lifesaver, well worth the small monthly fee.” Thanks for the shout-out, John!
- What was your first program? Barry is too old to remember but he had a TI-99/4A.
- Over half a million Macs infected by a virus? This got our in-house security expert, Doug, all kinds of excited.
- A handy chart of German articles from Joschka.
- A way to view source on iPhone or iPad. We’re working on a project for the touch devices right now, and this handy bookmarklet is going to be useful.
- Not sure why Lettini would think that any Harvester would need it, but he reminded us that last Friday was get-out-of-jail-free-day in Brooklyn.
- Harvest FriTunes #72: Interjections! Featuring James Brown, Lionel Richie, The Long Winters (!), and Usher (twice).
- A here’s a moment of Zen: (happy) dots, by Evan, who also provided us with the animated gif of the week.
Friday was an important day for Jonathan Lane, who checks into Harvest each day from Mayne Island, BC, Canada (if you plan to visit, he asks that you first watch this video). Jon was a happy Harvest customer, and joined our support team one year ago. These days he leads up the Fireteam and diagnose potential bugs reported by our customers. We’re lucky to have the amazing Jon on our team!
There you have it. Hope your coming week is smooth, interesting and productive. See you soon.
