I enjoy working with business folks (marketing. product managers, sales) to see an application/service become useful and helpful to its users (and my business' customers) and that they can produce a profit. I find that often those folks are my greatest allies since in the end we both want to produce great applications and satisfied customers.
YAPC::NA 2013 was great. I learned a bunch about various new things (like statsd, Devel::SizeMe) and met a tons of great people. I'd love to get some time to blog about it but not sure I have the TUITs. Our team have launched a new service: Spark Pay. My team has been converting more to client side using backbone and working to continue to move quickly and develop some great new features and work on scaling.
3Ring has made it to semi finals of the MN Cup. The team is working hard on getting business plan together. We had a school pilot in May that went great, the alpha of the binder system has been up and running using Perl (Dancer), MongoDB and Bootstrap.
