[JISC] Weeknote 29/33

I am on leave this week and next and for the first time in a long time have completely switched off my work email and am taking a proper break from the day job – before the day job takes a permanent break from me🙂

It hasn’t all been getting Mayorships of local pubs or going to the cinema though.

I’ve been pushing along with Bettr and am very pleased with how it is going. I have a pretty decent line-up of speakers already (with more to come) and have already sold one ticket despite not planning on announcing registration was open til Monday! There has even been a nibble around sponsorship despite me making no efforts in that direction up til now so that needs careful handling.

Evenstreams is very, very close to being opened up to a few friends to kick the tires a bit and see what they can break. Stef really has performed miracles with this app already and we are coming up with new features everyday – though being careful to stick to the mission that it should be as simple as possible and feel more like data entry than web design at the backend.

I’ve agreed to take on a weeks work for Jiva around the launch of Tutorhub as well which is nice as it means I was there at day one of initiating the project and then will be involved with the launch.

Well that is about it for this week – next week will be equally short and sweet before we start the final run-in..
