Hasbro-Hackathon

I had the pleasure of being in a team with Doug Hopkins (@combatadvantage) and Steve Weed (@sweed84) at this weekend’s 2014 Hasbro Hackathon. Our small team won in our category! I’m very proud of what we accomplished in such a short time. Thank you to Hasbro for hosting this and creating such a great event. I look forward to doing it again next year.

Quick And Easy Performance Timing For Your HTML5 Page

When I was a teenager I had a job at Burger King. If you have never noticed it before, there is a large digital clock next to the drive through window, which tells the employee how long the cusotmer has been waiting for their order. Measuring drive through wait time is a core KPI (of course, this was before I know what core-KPI meant) for these stores. In the end, what this really meant was that the drive through attendant would often just hit the “served” button as soon as the car drove up to window, instead of when the customer was actually served their order. To counter this, the stores started installing pressure pads underneath the drive through windows, to detect when the car actually drove away instead of relying on the teenager at the window. This is the real reason they will sometimes ask you to pull through and they will bring you your food, instead of making you wait at the window for a delayed order – it’s not for your convenience, they want to get you off that pressure pad.

Calculator App With Waterfall Chart

Anyone who knows me knows that I Iove a good chart. So it was a natural, and fun, next addition to my Crafting Profit Calculator. Adding these charts packs in a ton of information into this small and very simple tool – and it was a great excuse to play with Google’s Visualization API.

Some of you may recall the Craft Profit Calculator I created for my wife last year. It’s very simple web app I use occasionally to try out new ideas; initially created to play with HTML5. I released a new version today. It has a few new features, but the one I want to call out initially is the waterfall charts
