The work I was doing on Highrigg wrapped up. Between weeks 332 and 333, I wrapped up my end-to-end demo, with a fully working backend, front-end authentication, and some basic live updates. As well as the text documentation, I recorded a quick screencast of the demo in operation – that’d make it easy to share with colleagues who couldn’t run the software on their setups.
And with the alpha goal hit, my contract came to an end. So I’m taking a bit of a breath, and wondering what’s next. For now, that involves wrapping up a variety of small personal pieces of work – notably, an up-to-date version of this website with several years’ worth of projects written up!
I’m also moving studio. Not very far – a new space has come up at Makerversity, so, after several years sharing with current studiomates, I’ll be moving a few doors down into a small space with some freelancers I know. It suits my needs well right now, and will be a lovely bunch to share a space with. Many thanks to Ben, Sam, and the rest of the PAN/Location Games crews for the past five years.
I also had a prospective meeting about a small workshop which sounds positive, so I’m working out how best to fit that in around studio change-around and some upcoming travel.
And, of course, this all means that I potentially have upcoming availability. If the sort of thing I do – technology strategy, prototyping engineering, interaction design – sounds like a fit for you, now’s a good time to get in touch!
