Week 30: Request to join a team

Recap: Fluidkeys makes PGP simple for engineering teams. It helps you safeguard your source code and protect passwords, secrets and personal data.

The short version

Itโ€™s late, again. Iโ€™ll keep this short, againโ€ฆ

People can now request to join a team

Weโ€™ve had a great week on the development front, it’s really been humming along nicely this week.

We tweaked the way an admin sets up a team, to give them a boiler plate invite they can copy and paste into Slack or whatever to start getting other people signed up:

Next up was making that team join <uuid> bit workโ€ฆ Which as of earlier today, we have! Phew.

Weโ€™re on a mission! ๐Ÿš€

Weโ€™re getting ready to incorporate which means we need to write our articles of association. As Paul wrote last week, weโ€™re going to be a non-profit, which means we have to write a social purpose.

We went back at watched Simon Sinekโ€™s presentation where he suggests you Start With Why. Itโ€™s a great talk and if youโ€™ve got a spare five minutes Iโ€™d recommend you watch it!

This helped us answer the following:

Why are we doing this?
We believe companies should respect their users

We encourage that by making it simple to adopt technology and practices that protect personal information

What are we doing?
We build beautifully simple security software for teams

Itโ€™s got us thinking about how we are working hard to respect our users. Weโ€™re not happy with Mailchimp, for example, as they donโ€™t allow us to turn off tracking. Weโ€™ll be migrating soon.

It also reminded me, we’ve been thinking about this stuff for a while now. I think a lot of the work we did at the Co-op would have fit under this purpose too!

Having this mission and social objective pinned down brings us a step closer to incorporating!

Weโ€™re getting some nice feedback

It was great, we moved some keys around between machines really easily. Great stuff!

Having Fluidkeys out in the wild, and then hearing back from people using it telling us they found in really simple and slick has felt great.

Next week

Next week we will:

As ever, if youโ€™ve got any thoughts or feedback, weโ€™re all ears.

Have a lovely weekend,
