We Lean

  “We have a really good idea about developing a new web product.” Usually, this is what we actually think, but in the sentence there is a huge mistake: “a really good idea”.

My experience as an intern at Uxebu: TRUST first.

My first days at Uxebu were hilarious… yes, hilarious for everyone but me: I didn’t get half of their laughs and furrowed eyebrows. Sometimes they were just looking at me astonished and baffled.

My experience as an intern at Uxebu: Uxebu is changing me. How?

Before joining Uxebu, I was not familiar with the startup environment. For me startups were just new and small businesses with innovative ideas. Nothing too exciting. I began to realize that I had to deal with something new and unknown since the first Skype interview: it was scheduled at 3 p.m., and from 2 p.m. […]

Part 2. How to organize an event: our JS CodeRetreat

I love to organize events! I organized pretty big parties before coming here, and I loved to plan graduation parties for my friends (in the North-East of Italy graduation parties are held in a very folkloric way, not common at all… I’ve never seen anything like those parties and behaviors in the rest of the […]


Part 1. How to organize an event: our JS CodeRetreat

We are planning a JS CodeRetreat for February 8th (ah, btw, if interested, here’s the link to the website: jscoderetreat.com), and I, of course, wanted to lend a hand in the organization. The question was: how could I help if I didn’t understand at all what it was about? For this reason, some days ago […]

What is WAC and how it could help us 1

At Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, @uxebu attended the WAC event to catch up with the future of WAC. WAC, short for Wholesale Applications Community, is a group of global mobile operators. They provide, among other things, a spec for their correspondent web application runtime “WAC”. Recently the new WAC 2.0 Spec got out […]


BarCamp Munich 2010 – seen through JavaScript and mobile eyes

First and foremost big thanks to the organizers and sponsors of this awesome BarCamp. It almost seems as if BarCamps have already passed their tipping point, but still every time I discover new and interesting things, I meet people who attend for the first time and are excited about it, which makes it really awesome […]

Mobile Web – does the adult industry point the way (again)?

During a very intense week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and a lot of very interesting meetings, discussions and talks, one incident surprisingly stuck out. At one of the evening events, I randomly met the folks behind http://www.yourappshop.com, a platform which allows you to distribute iPhone applications through other means than the official […]
