What does effort look like?
I outlined 4 quarters — what humans call a year — each with its own Engineering theme:
- q1: Out the Door
- q2: UX, UX, UX!
- q3: Monitoring, Reporting, and Billing
- q4: Bulletproof & Prep for New Customers
Product & Engineering rule: Dates do not move, and we ship on dates.
If a feature does not make it, it does not make it. Kill your darlings.
This plan means revenue in q3.
Another way to look at this is zero dollars for, oh, 8 months.
If I put in no effort, no dollars seems fair.
But will I put in no effort? Not bloody likely.
