Minnesota Morning… CameraSlice, HomeSpotter At Mobile Twin Cities and Minneapolis Photos

I am a man of few words this weekend and I am doing my best to not work. So a quick post…


CameraSlice

CameraSlice (@CameraSlice) is featured in this morning’s Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Camera Slice app captures one moment of concerts, games in thousands of photos

It’s some sick technology that I first saw in person at MinneDemo 18 this past September. This is a photo from that night:

And this is the video from that night:

I see them at CoCo Uptown as they are in a program called BizSpark Fellowship. Click Microsoft partners with CoCo to support startups.

It’s going to be fun to watch them in the coming months… this could be really cool.


HomeSpotter at Mobile Twin Cities 

My friends at HomeSpotter (@HomeSpotter) are speaking at Mobile Twin Cities tomorrow night:

Mobile Applications at Scale!

Building, testing and deploying a mobile application for both iOS and Android platforms can be a challenging prospect for many companies to tackle. Imagine a world in which not one app, but 50, 100 or even 200 mobile applications are being developed, tested, and deployed on a regular release cycle. That level of production focus is the reality for the team at HomeSpotter. Brent and Abby’s discussion will focus around our strategy to tackle these technical and process challenges using concepts “borrowed” from the lean manufacturing process, lean startups, development culture and the tooling/automation required to support our business.

Brent Kastner, VP of Engineering at HomeSpotter and former CTO of GovDelivery, Inc. is a software as a service (SaaS) technology veteran focused on startups and early growth stage companies. Brent is passionate about mobile technologies and brings an intense focus on building quality and scale into engineering teams to speed business growth.

Abby Allen, Director of Product Implementation at HomeSpotter, is passionate about the nexus of process and technology.  As the former Support Automation Specialist for Google Adsense, Abby helped automate 89% of incoming publisher support volumes.  At HomeSpotter, she focuses on product documentation, internal tooling, and process automation to enable scalable white-label mobile solutions.

Friday morning I went down to my car at 9:06 am and found a parking ticket. I live on a residential street in the North Loop and the meters start to be enforced at 9:00 am. 6 minutes… seriously? He had been busy, there were a number of ticketed cars. Al say all that because of the irony that he was parked in a “No Parking” zone:

Friday evening while on my last #RecruiterLife call I noticed a couple of things… it was 5 pm, still very light out and the sun is moving further west (to the right) as it sets. Spring is coming soon, right?

Finally… Saturday afternoon I look out to see waves in the sky and that too had me thinking about spring. And waves on a lake. I think I have spring fever. In early February #TooEarly.
