Sorry about not updating lately but I've been super busy and I'm going to update more regularly from now on, promise!
Anyway, the first week have been much about getting into the Web Applications team and get a feeling of the current project we're working on.
The team members are really friendly, between 20-30, really talented and awesome to be with! I feel that I've been placed in the best place at Opera with lots of interesting projects and a great team.
The project we're working on is soon to be revealed and some big news are coming from Opera in the following weeks.
I've upgraded my workspace with a new screen and I'm currently working on getting a display adapter for my Mac to be able to use some Mac-specific software when developing.
I also got a new roomie beside me in the office, a swedish guy named David and he is a widget guru. He made the Twitter widget
which currently have over 76 000 downloads, awesome guy!
The work that I'm doing in the Web Applications team is exactly what I love doing: lots of drawing on the white-board, flow-charts, being creative with paper prototypes, refining with Photoshop and trying to find solutions that fits the users' needs.
Oh, and last Friday it was the yearly summer party at Opera. Free beer, barbecue, great people and lovely music, GREAT!
I also got the chance to play around with the new HTC Magic and the Android interface for a couple of minutes. I really liked it and I'm thinking of switching my iPhone for an Andriod phone.
Right now I'm playing around with OmniGraffle
, I've heard of it before but never really used it but my mentor Yenny uses it and it seems very efficient and easy to use. Try it out if you're an interaction designer!
Okay, so now in the future I'm going to keep you more updated, that's it for now, take care!
