  • Day 40 - Social Sharing Buttons

    Team perifericas (Speakerinnen) [2016] — at August 26, 2016 20:39 UTC

    Wow! What a week, hum?
    So much things we learned. It's funny and great when you realize that all of your previously estimatives were wrong.
    "Serious? Just these? We'll take care of them in the first month!" - said two poors girls that didn't know nothing about a big project. (John Snow's feelings)

    But, it's been amazing too. Now we know how deep and how much something that looks simple and easy to fix is complex. Like a domino effect.

    For social sharing buttons I'd always (Geisa) use third-party tools in my projects or clients projects. Simple and easy to manage, but to add one of them to Speakerinnen's site i dig the internet for recommendations, read posts and foruns about the pros and cons. So i realize that isn't the better solution: not safe, harvest traffic statistics from your site, track your visitors, slow to load, just a few disadvantages.

    The friday ends with more tasks to take care on monday.

    Others things we did

    • Clean Code readings;
    • Coach session with Brena <3;

    Have a great weekend, everyone!
