We will send out the link when the voting opens from September 4 to September 12 with more details on voting for cavnessHR.
During the time we were shooting the video, cavnessHR was supposed to be taking part in the weekly Bunker Labs Seattle Veterans in Residence check-in. https://bunkerlabs.org/seattle/114_comcast_017-05-04-bunker-labs-cbbell/ This is a weekly check-in for the Veteran Entrepreneurs that are taking part in the program in Seattle.
We missed most of this because of the video we were shooting. But we were able to make about the last 20 minutes of the discussion.
We applied to be one 28 people to receive product coaching from Hiten Shah. https://www.linkedin.com/in/hnshah/ In our opinion, Hiten is one of the top product people in the startup community. So we couldn't pass up the opportunity to potentially be coached by him.
We started reaching out again to possible replacements for PayScale. As we said before PayScale is not sharing their API with us and we have to find a replacement. One company reached back to us and that was Payfactors. https://payfactors.com/ We had a great talk and demo with Christian Liakos https://www.linkedin.com/in/christianliakos/ They have a possible solution for us that will be available at the end of the year at the most important part is they are going to provide access to their API to us.
We took the time to attend the Experiential summer student project at NorthEast University in Seattle. https://www.northeastern.edu/seattle/events/experiential-summer-student-project-showcase/ We watched several software development presentations. But the one that particularly interested us was the one by the JobLandr Team. It is a website where job seekers have the resources they need to find and obtain their calling. http://www.joblandr.com/ We have not had time yet, but we plan on following up with the members of the Joblandr team and the Faculty at NorthEast University.
We experimented again with a Snapchat filter for a day. We ran one from 8am to 5pm on Thursday, August 23, 2018 at our work location of the Lake Union WeWork. We had 195 swipes and 27 uses of our filter. Not great numbers.
We took a webcast from SHRM https://www.shrm.org/ to continue our HR professional development. We do our best to do some type of HR professional development once a week.
We also took the time to take part in a marketing webinar from Moz https://moz.com/ We learned a lot of great things about marketing from this webinar.
We had a meeting with one of our customers where we worked with them on their employee handbook, HR policies and their culture brief.
The backend is setup using NestJS with some basic endpoints: organization, contact, authentication
2. The frontend is setup with Angular6 and a couple basic components
3. The frontend is wired to the backend to load a single organization via the API
4. Cypress is setup/stubbed for doing the end-to-end testing
5. A single feature is written to describe the tests in Cucumber (first screenshot above)
6. All the supporting scripts to build, lint, test, deploy new iterations are done
7. The database (Postgres) is created on the fly for now from the code (as I add functionality the DB schemas are updated)--that will be done via DB migrations once we reach MVP
8. Heroku staging and production pipelines are set up & wired to auto-deploy the app on commit to master on Github
