Keeping your head above water by managing your tasks and time

In this blog post, I'll write a little bit about the tools and methods I used to manage the chaos that used to be my workday. In my previous job, I was managing the IT departments in four different high schools. Every day at work I would get at least 50 emails and a lot of PM's in the organizations'…

IRL #8: Bangkok

Wohooo! It's 2020 and time for our first IRL of the year Decade. We decided on Bangkok (known as Krung Thep in Thai) as the IRL location since it has relaxed visa norms and for its undisputed reputation as a fun city.

IRL#7: Ljubljana

World Usability Congress 2018

In the middle of October, I went to Graz to attend World Usability Congress. This conference first started 10 years ago and even though it’s not a huge one (around 450 attendees), it attracts designers, managers and product owners from all over the world. It was my first time there and I’m pleased to say that it’s organized with love,…

The Niteo Handbook update – less bloat, more information
