Participating at Burda Hackday 2016 in Munich this weekend with kununu, thinking about the future of work – nice atmosphere and lots of awesome ideas and discussions!

Some mobile apps have a poor user experience, some have a really great one. Time for positive feedback: I think car2go has a pretty awesome mobile app! I signed up for an account about two years ago but until now, did not use the service as a) I own a car and b) public transport in Vienna works absolutely fine and is cheap. However, visiting Burda Hackday 2016 in Munich this weekend, I had bad weather and was in a hurry, which is why I tried car2go. My conclusion: Getting the cars displayed in the app, reserving a car, giving feedback about the condition, ending the ride, etc. – everything worked fine and was absolutely intuitive. Great job! :)

As posted before, I attended a one-day Kanban kick-off training held by Dr. Klaus Leopold from LEANability. I have to think it over a few more times, but I can definitely say that I found it very interesting. As other methods, Kanban itself does not solve fundamental problems you might face in your organisation – such as lacking motivation, unclear goals, changing priorities and things like that. What it does, is to provide lots of transparency which helps you to find problems in your working process. I am going to sum up my notes and write another blog entry in the following days!

As I told you recently, I started to learn Spanish and made my first baby steps as I am now able to introduce myself in three different ways, telling people how I am usally called by others, telling people what my favorite nickname is, greeting other people and so on – as I said, it’s still baby steps but I will be holding on and keep you updated about my progress. ;-)

I wanted to start learning Spanish for quite a long time. Now I finally bought a basic language course as well as an advanced language course on DVD – let’s see how this works out … I’ll keep you updated.
