Hack Month – October 2011

Applingua HQ is moving! From Tuesday 27th September, I will be based out of Amelia, Italy along with partner in crime, Joe Westhead. We both started our own companies 9 months ago (Applingua, helipad.me) and felt it was time to really put the pedal to the metal on a few ideas we have for 2012.

Our aim is to power through a backlog of tasks, helping each other out where we can. I’ve got a wall in mind that will make a pretty good Scrum-board and I know the coffee is good enough in Italy to keep me working 12 hour days. At the moment we’re looking at between 4-6 weeks to produce some really great things.

Why Amelia? Well my parents have a flat there so rent-free is pretty much always a winner. I know the town very well having spent pretty much every summer there since I was 18. It’s a little sleepy, but the internet speed is good, the ice cream is great and the pizza is even better. The town is on a hill so morning walks will really stretch my legs before settling down to a day of work. It’s also still 25 degrees sunny. What more could you want?

I’ll keep you all updated on what we’re working on. Exciting times ahead!
