"Old" Europe software production

Our recent trip to Silicon Valley was quite impressive, for the quality and number of companies located there, and for the enthusiasm and open-mindedness of the developers we met in SD West (in sharp contrast to a surrounding paranoid society affected by overruling, but that is another matter). Clearly it is easier to work and grow in IT there. I now reviewed our competitors locations, both from the Jolt finalist list, and as market leaders: they are all U.S.A. based, from North Carolina to California.

We are the only example in our category that shows that you can do it in Europe too, and get recognized in the U.S.; so Europeans, go and choose us!

Teamwork wins the 2007 Jolt Productivity Award

We got the 2007 Jolt Productivity Award for the Project Management category!!!

The Jolt winners were announced at SD West, in Santa Clara (CA), and we were there: it was a nice evening, the prizes were presented by Craig Newmark of Craigslist.

It is the first time that an Italian software product gets a Jolt. For Teamwork, it is a recognition of the quality of the work done, which will stimulate us in producing still better releases.

See all the winners:

Creating an ASP service

A few weeks ago we decided to offer Teamwork as a free-to-start and pay-to-have-more online service.

In order to do this, we had to meet three requirements:

1. make Teamwork's areas completely self sufficient, as every account would be an area on a unique, shared Teamwork instance

2. automate the free account limits verification -> "buy on PayPal" suggestion -> return to online service from PayPal with account activation

3. make Teamwork easier to begin with

We completed all three, set up a couple of fast servers, and are now on line. In 24 hours we had 145 new accounts, so the idea at least has some glamor to it. The dedicated servers for the moment answer really fast, so we keep finger crossed.

Point 3 is actually the hardest one; we introduced a new page, which will be included in next release, which should make it easier to start using Teamwork here's a screenshot:
