Take-off

Over the past few weeks we have seriously begun mixing our brains into the Xcode mud. As I’m sure you’ve seen in the pics posted on this blaawgh, we’ve set up office in beautiful Guldheden, Göteborg and we’re both committing a few days per week to the ÖeG cause in long, hard coding sessions. I’ve really been looking forward to soaring through the open skies with a wingman and I’m really happy with the productivity we’re sustaining into the wee hours of the morning.

I’m absolutely positive this is the best way to earn a living by writing software. I’ve previously been working both in big bureaucratic organizations following rigorous procedures and done consulting and freelancing work on my own, often working from home. Poking around in someone else’s old nasty code trying to implement some whimsical ideas from the marketing department makes me feel like a midwife and running around doing short jobs for different clients makes me feel like a prostitute, selling out my beautiful code. ÖeG makes me feel like a caring father, raising our apps to be the most badass mofos in the schoolyard.

If you’re following us on Twitter (and you should) you probably know that Project Mustang is almost complete and Jonas is well under way with another project that he will post about soon. We’re still waiting for our company to be registered so we can join Apple’s developer program and submit our apps to the App Store, therefore our apps will not show up there just yet. But we’ve got lots of plans for the next project, so stay tuned and you’ll be the first to know when the apps are available for download!

Here are a couple of pics from last night. Coding session turned into a small party with some friends where we played some good old Hero Quest. I fell asleep on the couch, woke up and continued coding. Startup life ftw.

Office Space

We are currently on the look out for some premium office space in central Gothenburg. Preferably a large residential house with room for at least four people. We need somewhere to code our apps, brew our beer, hang our whiteboard, throw our wikkid release bashes, and similar activities. And somewhere to wake up with a pounding head to the sound of your wingman’s fingers caressing the keyboard, arousing Xcode into producing beautiful pixels of perfect interface. If you’re aware of someone who is subletting a house or large apartment in Gothenburg please drop a line in the comments. Peace sisters.
