It would be helpful if you state what you want

For the software part, look up a company called Vendr, specifically if you are cost-cutting. Can’t help you on the hardware side.

Nope, not I...

Never been this calm about work. I’ll decline additional meetings that were not scheduled and say “oh I need to get some lunch”. After a deadline I’ll just take a day off to run errands without asking anyone. I stand up for myself when need be instead of just taking the blame. Part of it is knowing they need people at my level. Part of it is knowing I’m just waiting out my retention clause. Big part of it is having that green card tucked in my passport holder!

Tired of my pharmacy. Every single month I have to call the pharmacy for my Adderall, they say they don’t have any prescriptions for me, they ask for additional information, they magically find it, and then I have to wait like 1 to 8 hours to have it filled. It’s a pointless phone call. Why do I have to repeat these shenanigans every month?! Is it just Rite Aid? Is CVS any better? So irritating.

My boyfriend slammed the window after an unsatisfied sex experience (it’s my fault because I wasn’t experienced and cut him off too many times that he couldn’t get erected anymore). I just want to know if this is a red flag that I should watch out for or is it normal? We talked about it and he told me why it was frustrating, but I’ve never experienced this frustration level in my life unless it’s a heated argument

With that said, what underlying technology would you use for backend end -front end. Is it worth using some Rapid Development develop in salesforce, outsystems? Save a bit of time and focus more time on the fuctional/business process aspects of the product?

A good technology combination that offers good time to market/ ease of development, and that scales up well?


In general, what are your thoughts around engagement management vs product management?
