If you’d had 90 days left before becoming a Remote Team, what could you change?

There’s a common myth that co-located product teams perform better than distributed ones. Given the nature of today’s digital workplace, we should be challenging this assumption and letting people work how they actually want to work. Remote teams allow you to get access to the world’s brightest talent and gives your employees more flexibility to work where they want, allowing for more diverse, happy teams. However, to achieve this, we need to fundamentally rethink our tool stack AND our processes.

Fundamental issues with remote work in its current setup

At one of my former companies, when two members of our team started working remotely, we continued to run Scrum…

I’m co-hosting a webinar with Sonja Mewes, Founder of Beautiful Future, on August 8. Don’t miss it for valuable insights on how to build what matters.

Working in product development, it’s easy these days to get lost in frameworks. Whether it’s about building products or entire organizations.

And while I definitely have become more cautious about introducing new frameworks to my work the work of teams I’m leading, some combinations stuck with me.
For example the Auftragsklärung format (or: mission briefing after its inventor Stephen Bungay). But when I took over iridion at the end of last year, I was looking…

Recently, I shared an article called ‘Why roadmaps are a waste of time’ and while I was certain that this catchy title would make for lots of interest, I wasn’t prepared. Apparently, most of the people within my bubble seem to resonate with the pain of creating time-based roadmaps a lot.

This impression was amplified when I mocked the job description for a product owner role which included…

Git2Go Features

Seamless Git Integration for GitHub, GitHub Enterprise, Bitbucket & GitLab

With our last release of the year, we couldn’t be happier to introduce full support for gitlab.com and GitLab CE/EE.

It was the last missing external service for Git2Go and it’s the perfect upate to conclude 2015. We can’t wait to show you what’s next and have a couple of neat ideas in our heads.

How to make ‘Swiftception’ happen on your iOS device

Apple just recently finally open-sourced Swift and the internet (or more specifically GitHub) went crazy.

While it’s certainly nice to view the repo in Safari or clone it for contributing purposes to your computer, I think it’s way nicer (and somehow crazy) to clone a Swift repo in a Swift-based application like Git2Go on iOS and continue from there.

And here’s how to do it:

  1. Make sure you have our latest update (1.3) installed.
  2. Open any public Swift repository in your mobile Safari.

3. Open the Safari action sheet from there…

Git2Go loves Bitbucket

When the work on Git2Go began, it was clear for us that it should support more services than ‘just’ GitHub. We had Bitbucket and also Gitlab on our Roadmap right from the start, but also wanted to release our 1.0 version as soon as possible.

That’s why it was no surprise to us that the no. 1 feature request post-launch was support for Bitbucket repositories. While we wanted to do release some necessary homework and obvious iOS 9/iPhone 6S support in 1.1, it was time to finally unveil our Bitbucket integration in 1.2.

So, with today’s release of our latest…
