This was my first cycle sprint within the Cloud design team and my first time to Vancouver, Canada #winner
Having only been with Canonical for 8 weeks and working closely my fellow design colleagues, it was a great opportunity for me meet and collaborate with product engineers working around the world.
Not only was it great to meet engineers but also to sit in meetings with them and learn more about our products, giving me further insight and understanding into MAAS. Discussing new features, sketching, presenting and planning during the week really helped us to evolve our thinking about what we plan to deliver in the next few months. I also had the chance to showcase recent designs and get feedback from a variety of people across different areas of the business.
An exciting new project I worked on whilst at the sprint was Snapcraft.io, a tool that enables you to deliver and package your app to any Linux desktop or cloud server. I was given the task of creating a micro website promoting this tool and showcasing how easy it is to use to setup your app.
But it wasn’t just all #workworkwork… as the evenings gave us opportunity to socialise and get to know different people and explore the city of Vancouver.
It’s an exciting time to be at Canonical with big product releases on the horizon. I’m looking forward to our releases of MAAS 2.0 and Juju 2.0!
Below are some photos of our week in Vancouver. Enjoy :)
