It’s been a very busy weekend!

I’ve been working on a side iOs (iPad) project for a client in Yorkshire. This project is all about executive remuneration which is complex and interesting. I am interfacing into an existing web site, so there is also a bit of server-side JSON to do. It’s a reasonably straight forward piece of work. There is some data sync required, but fortunately it’s uni-directional.

I’ve also been improving our client deployment centre which us a very cool piece of software designed to let our clients trigger their own software updates at times that suit them. We’re nearly ready for launch on this one.

To complicate matters a little more, our new puppy arrived on Saturday. She is eight weeks old and a bit of a handful. This means my work this weekend has been a bit broken up and I haven’t had much sleep…

This week has a variety of jobs in store. We have an Android app to deploy, our USA iPad app to work on and a couple of interesting web-based pieces of software to tweak. Hopefully there will be an interesting SAML single sign-on piece of work to do in the next couple of weeks too.

Finally we should sign contracts this week on a nice Agile training / consultancy job which will run over the next few months. This is delivering a major organisational transformation for a rapidly growing software company, so we are really looking forward to it!

I suppose it’s a good thing that the puppy isn’t letting me sleep much at the moment…!
