Together with 9 other cool startups we will learn how to make Deskbookers better, bigger and most importantly how to expand to the international market! All of this in just 150 days while being helped by 100+ mentors and the care of the Rockstart program.
A few days ago we launched the native Deskbookers Android App. The app makes flex working easier and even more flexible!
At Deskbookers we are trying to grow, share the new way of working with as many people as we can. The most obvious way to accomplish this is to make our website better.
Mobile chat apps like WhatsApp, Viber and Facebook are taking over mobile communication, replacing texting (SMS) and phone calls. WhatsApp is the biggest player in mobile communication in The Netherlands and most of Europe. WhatsApp's user base grows with roughly one million users a day world wide. But the resent acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook (involving 16 billion dollars) creates a fear for privacy issues. People start doubting if they want to keep using WhatsApp. I suggest a cool alternative: Telegram!
ForceParty announced on February 15, 2014 that we stop organizing events. The planned episode #26 is canceled.
To make my site more complete I wanted to add a search engine. Because I store my data in a MongoDB database and because I wanted to practice with MongoDB, I decided to create my own search engine.
A new feature on my website: projects. From now on I will write about projects I am working on. My public GitHub projects are automatically listed as well. Also the music I listen to is now listed on the website. And last but not least, I added (social) media links in my footer.
