Itsycal

I found this list of 25 free macOS apps every Mac user should have, which I found on my twitter feed, interesting.

I already use some apps like Wunderlist, Slack and VLC mentioned in that list. But one app that I felt I could use is Itsycal. It shows the calendar from the menu bar; something I wish the default time date / time app on Mac showed. Itsycal also connected to the calendar app on the Mac and synched all the events. I am no longer using the default time app on the menu bar. Now my calendar is just Ctrl + I away.

Try Itsycal!

Giapo

Here’s a cool little post about my favorite ice cream place in the town.

WHAT'S YUMMY

Giapo is well-known as ‘ice-cream heaven’ and as one of Auckland’s best dessert locations.  A couple of weeks ago, we were lucky enough to get a BTS tour of the luxe new parlour and ‘laboratory’ on Gore Street, which has opened after they out-grew their previous location.

For some background, Giapo is the name of the store and also the name of the store’s founder, Giapo Grazioli.  Hailing from Italy but strongly identifying with New Zealand, Giapo and his wife, Annarosa, are two faces you’ll often find behind the counter passionately describing the menu and bringing that infamous Italian ‘love for food’ (specifically ice-cream, in this case) to our corner of the globe.

If you ever get the chance to speak to Giapo in person, you will be able to appreciate how genuinely passionate and enthusiastic he is about his trade.  For him, ice-cream making is an art, a creative process, an exciting adventure and a constant challenge…

Be part of future of work

I will never stop learning. I won’t just work on things that are assigned to me. I know there’s no such thing as a status quo. I will build our business sustainably through passionate and loyal customers. I will never pass up an opportunity to help out a colleague, and I’ll remember the days before I knew everything. I am more motivated by impact than money, and I know that Open Source is one of the most powerful ideas of our generation. I will communicate as much as possible, because it’s the oxygen of a distributed company. I am in a marathon, not a sprint, and no matter how far away the goal is, the only way to get there is by putting one foot in front of another every day. Given time, there is no problem that’s insurmountable.
