  1. Invision is a popular tool for visual designers and UX designers, but it is usually a pain to transfer the information over to Jira. With Invision for Jira that becomes less problematic since you can embed an inline prototype directly into a Jira issue that also include the inspect function that makes life easier for the developers. While this is very nice, it really is just a fancy way to link people to Invision because the links will take you to Invision and you get the same issue with making sure everyone have a login and understand the way Invision works. This does not solve the actual problem to bring in the information the designers need into the documentation, it just add a more convenient way to direct the users to Invision. So this leaves the designs in Invision, which is not a good place to keep designs once they are agreed upon since you need to ensure the designs are not continuously improved as that cause issues with requirements. This can be solved by transferring projects to a another, controlled Invision instance, but that is messy and prone to confusion and mistakes. What I would like to have is a way to embed this directly into Confluence where it can be version handled and controlled from a requirements perspective. The concept is amazing, but the solution right now is not enough for a good way to bring in design in a controlled way as a requirement into Jira unfortunately.

    Warframe Fortuna - we all lift together

    Warframe, the free to play game that just keep putting all other games to shame when it comes to content creation and communicating with their community, announced a new city to play around in called Fortuna. The presentation comes with an amazing song that just hit me right in the heart! Do you like it?
  3. Gliffy Projects for Jira is another great product from the Gliffy Team and this time they help bridging the gap between design and development. It's an easy concept that is easily understood by the designers using hotspots in the design directly connected to development tasks. The concept is super easy and it is quite nice to be able to just add work tasks directly to a design the way Gliffy Projects do it. The down side however is that you need to use another image manager which is the Gliffy Projects. If I am already using Invision for example it does not really feel natural to add the images again to another tool just to create the hotspots to Jira. For this to be a slam dunk I would love to see it integrated in Confluence like their other products so I can stay in one tool for requirements and from there simply connect the uploaded designs in the same way. I do hope Gliffy are working on this because that would make this an invaluable tool in any project using visual design or workflows that need to be translated into activities.

    Finally back in the gym again!

    It's been a very long time since I went to the gym, but I am finally back again. I am weak and today I am in pain as my muscles complain about the abuse I put them through the last few days. It feels pretty good in other words. As usual when I hit the gym I go for contact over weight. People look a me a bit weird when I workout since I do not push for heavy weights since my body is so weak right now. Instead I focus on getting the movements right. Technique is more important and instead of stressing the muscles with heavy weights, which means I would risk injuries, I "bleed" them instead. Bleeding the muscles is just pumping them so full of blood that you rip the muscle fibers from within. This can be done with small weights so the risk is smaller than loading up on heavy weights. The pain is just as bad though, so that is good. The aim now is to push at least four days a week for the next 4 weeks to get into the routine gain. As I go back to work after the vacation I need to figure out how to keep the training going. As I work long days that are eleven to thirteen hours long with commuting that makes working out a bit difficult unless I want to hit the gym at the same time as everyone else. I do not like that kind of training though and I just get frustrated in crowded gyms. I also need to do something about my core. I have problems finding good ways to get focused core training and since that is my biggest training area due to a funnel chest and weak abs. I am considering if I should join a Tae Kwon Do club as I love the art of kicking and it's an amazing way to get great core training that I love to do. I also need the flexibility training as I am getting old and stiff. First I need to get my body used to the workout again so I do not have to walk around like a zombie due to the muscle pain 🙂

    Playing Destiny 2 online is a bit scary

    Playing Destiny 2 is fun, but being a solo player means you are pretty much screwed out of most of the end game activities such as Raid and Escalation Protocol. The solution is to join a clan, but that require you to connect with people that you do not know over Discord. That is a bit scary. As a person I like meeting new people in person, but I hate talking to them on the phone. That is because I pick up so much in the communication non verbally so I feel a bit awkward just using voice communication. In my gaming I do not play that much. In fact I spend roughly 10-12 hours a day with work, if I include the travel time. That leaves very little time to play games, especially a game like Destiny where you pretty much need to be organized if you want to get anywhere with end game activities. So in order to actually do Nightfall and Trials I joined a clan. Well, technically it's my second clan since the first one kind of died out. Joining a clan is just the first step however and you need to join in on one of the chat rooms to co-ordinate things. In my clan we use Discord for this, which is a great way to communicate. But a bit scary. You pretty much randomly call someone and you have no idea who might be on the other end. This is a bit scary, but scary does not always have to be bad. Sometime scary is actually quite fun as you get to push your own limits a bit. So far my experiences have been great, but there is a lot to learn about the online social interaction that is quite different from analog social interactions.

    Update on Gutenberg

    Progress on the Gutenberg project, the new content creating experience coming to WordPress, has come a long way. Since the start of the project, there have been 30 releases and 12 of those happened after WordCamp US 2017. In total, there have been 1,764 issues opened and 1,115 closed. As the work on phase one moves into its final stretch, here is what you can expect. In Progress Freeze new features in Gutenberg (the feature list can be found here). Hosts, agencies, teachers invited to opt-in sites they have influence over. WordPress.com has opt-in for wp-admin users. The number of sites and posts will be tracked. Mobile app support for Gutenberg will be across iOS and Android. July 4.9.x release with an invitation to install either Gutenberg or Classic Editor plugin. WordPress.com will move to opt-out. There will be tracking to see who opts out and why. Triage increases and bug gardening escalates to get blockers in Gutenberg down to zero. Gutenberg phase two, Customization exploration begins by moving beyond the post. August and beyond All critical issues within Gutenberg are resolved. There is full integration with Calypso and there is opt-in for users there. A goal will be 100k+ sites having made 250k+ posts using Gutenberg. Core merge of Gutenberg begins the 5.0 release cycle. 5.0 moves into beta releases and translations are completed. There will be a mobile version of Gutenberg by the end of the year. WordPress 5.0 could be as soon as August with hundreds of thousands of sites using Gutenberg before release. Learn more about Gutenberg here, take it for a test drive, install on your site, follow along on GitHub and give your feedback. View the full article

    Things are a bit weird right now

    Life lately have been a bit weird. On one hand I am having a blast at my assignment at H&M and on the other I have this feeling of being unfulfilled. I can not really put my finger on it, but there is something inside that is just so very tired right now. Trying to make sense of this duality is usually a futile exercise since I am very much a duality person. I am extrovert and introvert, Intellectual and creative and so on. My very personality is a continuous conflict and cooperation between my dual natures. Still I am a bit concern about this lack of energy that has caused me to pretty much removed all social activities an engagements outside of work. Still I have this feeling of being drained of energy. Most likely it is because I am frustrated over time in general (late 40 year crisis perhaps?), but I also feel unfocused. Feeling unfocused is common for me and it happens every 3-6 months or so when my mind try to shift in one direction or the other. For a week or so I will be restless and not able to focus on an interest until my mind has shifted over. This time however it has been a little more than that and I struggle a bit to get past it. It's also typical that the universe try to counter my attempts to become a social hermit. So far I have 3 internal requests to educate and hold presentations on how to promote yourself online. I also have several requests to become more involved with Atlassian coming from the Atlassian team. I even got an invite to Barcelona this fall for the Atlassian European Summit. On one hand I am pretty much at the best moment in my life doing what I love most. On the other hand I am at a pretty low point feeling strangely lost and tired. It's a very strange feeling and I will have to figure out a way to break it. I'll start by taking a long vacation and really rest to see if that will help. I am guessing it will, but in case it does not then I'll figure something else out and go from there. Life is a strange thing and sometimes you just need to stop for a moment and see where you are going and why.
