One year of Triposo Inc

It's been a year since we started Triposo. An amazing year, in which we laid the foundations of what we believe will be the best travel guide ever. In order to make the guide travelers need, we need to travel ourselves. 

So we have set up our company in a way that makes travel part of our process. For one, we don't all live in the same place. We're in three different countries most of the time. That gives us a different perspective. Secondly, we travel and work while we travel. Douwe coded in a beach house in Goa for a month, Jon worked from a bunch of places in Spain, Les was in Osaka for almost a month. Finally, we do Jamborees. We take the team to an exciting place where we design, drink, code, travel, code, travel and drink.

Here's a little around the world in five locations.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam was the location of our first Jamboree. We got together in a really nice house on a stately canal in Amsterdam and coded like it was 1999. And we got a lot of work done. We made vector maps work on iOS and Android and made our first version of the Triposo world guide: one app in which you can download travel guides for any destination in the world. Well two apps, actually. The world guide for iOS and for Android.


Goa

In November Douwe headed for Goa to code from there during one month. He was ahead of the team by 4.5 hours, so by the time we did our daily 11:00 AM Standup meeting using Google Hangouts, Douwe always had something new to demo us - and every day he would have more of a tan. Among the things developed in Goa are the way we show small cities in our guides, the way we show background information like history, art, culture and the phrasebooks. 


Marrakech

In January 2012 we had a Jamboree in Marrakech, a very inspiring city in Morocco, Africa. We were coding on the rooftop and as the sun set over the Red City and the Muezzin started singing we pressed the launch button for our Travel log website

Berlin

Then we rented a stately Jugendstil house in Prenzlauer Berg, with 12 foot high ceilings. We haven't launched what we built there, but soon, really soon now, it will hit the Appstore, and it will be just as awesome as Berlin.


Osaka

Our UX designer Les spent a part of March and most of April in Osaka. At the end of his working day he would present his designs and ideas in a Google Hangout to the rest of the team, who were just starting up. The results of Les' fantastic trip to Japan, will be available in the next next release. Because that's what happens when a designers gets inspired. They come up with loads of ideas that take quite a while to implement.


So how do we do it?

We believe that it is essential to keep on traveling. Because only when you are traveling with just your phone and our app you find out where we fall short of our own expectations - and where we exceed them. Only when you travel with just your phone and our app you get the inspiration needed to make a travel guide that is the better than anything that's out there.

And the great things is that in 2012 you can travel and be very productive at the same time - more productive than you would be if you were all in the same office all of the time. 

There is a bunch of amazing tools we use to pull this off. We mentioned the 11:00 AM Google Hangout already. It's amazingly efficient way of presenting what you've done in the past 24 hours. The screen sharing feature is awesome (even though you can't have two people sharing a screen at the same time).  Pivotal Tracker is also a great tool (it's pretty useful if you are in the same building too). We prefer it to Basecamp - even though we must admit this looks a bit better.

Even with all the great tools for team cooperation, we do miss Google Wave a bit...

Working online for any job as an online tutor or like you who helps students with statistics assignment has its risks. Risks are inevitable, as one person once said. Are you open to sharing? I know there is that weird experience you have ever had with a student who contacts you to do their statistics assignment. Would you like to share? It can help us learn. I am an Econometrics assignment help expert and therefore I want to help students too. I am also open to partnering with you on statistics homework help .

Who else feels these guys charge too high for their www.matlabassignmentexperts.comMatlab assignment help? I have worked with other www.matlabassignmentexperts.com Matlab homework help experts before but the prices were a little lower than what this company charges. However, I must say that the quality of work is great and that’s why I have stuck with this company for a while now. I always come here whenever I am stuck on my control systems assignments. But I think it’s about time they started recognizing loyal customers by giving them a discount or something.

Why did I know you in the last semester and the way I struggled with my economics assignments? I needed an economics assignment help expert which I didn't get, and therefore, ended up performing poorly. Now that I have known you, I hope you will be available to offer me economics homework help when I need it. I also hope that you handle urgent assignments.

harry ramsey said...

I am okay with the way these guys provide their Matlab assignment help. Maybe it was the topic or the limited timeframe I gave that made them not deliver my signal processing assignment solution to my expectations. I still scored a decent grade but I feel the Matlab homework help solver who handled the task could have done better.

Hey there, I need the help of a statistics homework help expert in carrying out MANOVA analysis. I am confident in using the one-way ANOVA or the two-way ANOVA, but there are times that things become very complicated. The case of MANOVA is one of them. Help me with the general understanding, and we will be good to go. Other than ANOVA in SPSS I would also like to know whether you offer STATA homework help. If yes let me know so that I can send you my requirements.

You would have gone over a substantial measure of ads of escort services that show up once you are surfing on the online . Frequently, these escorts are a touch of prostitution. there's still confusion on what definitely thee escorts offer. Clearly, there's perplexity, if sex may be a little bit of their work. There aren't tons of agencies that provide Escort service in dwarka which are spotless which do bar sex. So just in case you're hunting down escort services, you would like to select what you're decisively hunting down. However during a word, call girl in dwarka are depended upon to be cooperation and few suggestive back rubs without sex. In any case, much of the time the clarity isn't given and it's still vague for a client and for an escort chief. Sex is consolidated a few times anyway it's not a touch of escort services. it's susceptible to the client and therefore the escort relationship.
