Quite packed day today. For the first time in this program I was a bit late to the CTO meeting. Or so I thought. I actually arrived at the same time as the rest! I totally blame Tak for that 😉
Today we had a special guest, Robbie from Pivotal Labs – who was also very generous paying for our breakfast. I have to say, I quite love these meetings. It’s a good way to start the day. It’s a shame though since the last few ones there have been a few people missing – I guess everyone is starting to feel the pressure of demo day upon us.
Spent the rest of the day in a few meetings and with the project I started yesterday, which we’ll call super-secret-project for easy reference. I am pretty happy with it today cause I managed to find a solution to something that was bugging me pretty badly. The solution is also pretty simple. And simplicity in code is beautiful.
In the afternoon we had a talk on fundraising by David Cohen. It was pretty entertaining and educative. There was role playing between him and a few CEOs. I thought Stan did a pretty solid job and we all got to learn the rules of the game – which are pretty much the same as dating. Always a funny subject that one. I am a pretty upfront person, so I tend to hate all the silly dating rules, but I can see how it could play well with investors.
After the fabulous talk, it was time for a bit of Paddle Battle (ping pong)! I got to play a couple of games before we had to shoot off for our team outing – the first of many! It was my turn to organise it and we ended up going bowling at All Star Lanes in Brick Lane. It was good fun! Though, it was pretty obvious how terrible I am at it. I think I got lucky once… Can you guess who’s who by our game names? 😉
And now I am going to bed, cause I need to sleep more. To sleep, full stop.
Good night! (◡ ‿ ◡ ✿)
