Product Positioning Sprint

Project Website Made With Stackbit

I wasn't planning on attending this sprint until I got an email from Section 4 that I was able to attend any sprint for the rest of the year - included with my membership which was already a scholarship from my favorite company. Needless to say, this covered a difficult and abstract topic that I think may have been one of the most important topics for me to end up exploring in business.

I thoroughly enjoyed this sprint for many reasons, but I had such a great time learning because of April Dunford. She is a very intelligent, humorous, and thoughtful person, who made this topic easier for me to understand. I strongly recommend anyone who needs help with product positioning to purchase and read her book Obviously Awesome: How to Nail Product Positioning so Customers Get It, Buy It, Love It - I promise you will be entertained.

For my sprint project, I first considered Twilio, but I realized that they really kind of had their positioning nailed down. I had recently found this company Stackbit and found their product fascinating. I also saw that they were hiring, so I thought that this might be a good way to show that I understand their product and also for me to apply these principles to a product that I believe coudl be improved with the topics and frameworks used in this course.

Since Stackbit is a website creation platform and CMS, I thought it would be fun to use their product to present my project. I got a stomach bug the last day this project was due and I didn't finish polishing off the presentation. If there are some things that seem to be missing, I am literally adding them right now as I finish styling and polishing off the website.

MT Man Adventures

Blog Website

This blog was created using the Jamstack framework with 11ty as my static website generator. To get started, I forked a repository from Kevin Powell and edited the HTML and CSS before I set up the config files and all the routes for my website.

The goal is to turn this project into a business. It also is serving as my Jamstack example for a March Madness series I am writing about on my newsletter, The MEANStack Developer Newsletter. I intend to grow this business and sell general goods and merchandise.

  • HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

Martin Luther King - Strength to Love

Inspiration & Education

I chose to make a responsive website on the collection of sermons by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr that are organized into a book titled, "Strength to Love", featuring a foreward by Coretta Scott King. This book is an important framework in how I assess and choose my values to live by. I blog about sections of the book and about how it applies to society today and my own life. I also publish a newsletter and am setting up community features. I must give up front credit to sheenamaequiles, an awesome Fiverr Freelancer who typed the entire book we can all read it - thank you!

Geaux Pomodoro Timer

Improve Productivity and Workflow

The Pomodoro (Pomodoro means tomato in Italian) Timer is a neat productivity tool that helps you work in sessions with short breaks, and after a certain number of runs, gives you a longer break. This was created based on the Pomodoro Technique, which breaks work up into four 25 minute sessions. After each work session, you are given a short break of 5 minuts. After all four work sessions are complete, you get a longer break that ranges from 15 to thirty minutes.
The theory behind this management method is that it reduces the number of internal and external workflow interruptions and allows you to get more work done than you would working for 5 minutes, then checking Facebook - another 5 minutes and then checking Twitter... you get the idea. If your activity gets interrupted, the activity must be recorded and postponed or the timer must be abandoned completely for the session.
You can view my project on GitHub for now while I work on getting it published to the website.
