Hey! My name is Gert-Jan van der Wel. I'm 41 years old, Dutch, married and have three little kids. I co-founded Floorplanner and I'm currently transitioning from running the technology dept to the sales dept. In between family and work, I like to ride my road bike whenever I can.
Here I share what I'm up to and working on at the moment. I aim to update it every few weeks. If you want me to send you an email whenever I wrote something new, you can sign up here.

The company is growing which means that our development process has to grow along with it. To get a sense of what people like and don’t like about our current process we organised a Start/Stop/Continue session. Everybody could write down their thoughts on sticky notes and post them in one of the Start/Stop/Continue buckets. Start was about the things we should start doing, Stop about the things we should stop doing and Continue about the things we should continue doing.
We got a lot of interesting feedback, most things we already knew but there were also a few surprises. We are going to process the sticky notes and come back with some suggestions about how we could improve our process. We’ll discuss this with the team in a follow up meeting.
