SaaS is also growing faster in 2017 than previously forecast, leading to a significant uplift in the entire public cloud revenue forecast. ... SaaS revenue is expected to grow 21 percent in 2017 to reach $58.6 billion… The acceleration in SaaS adoption can be explained by providers delivering nearly all application functional extensions and add-ons as a service. ...

Herding cats and GitHub Issues

I Want My Name I Want My Name: A year ago, our GitHub Issues were a little out of control. Something like 500-600 open issues in every shape and form dating back years — at some point, enough has to be enough.
So in a beautiful setting of Buddhist temple gongs and snow-crested alps in Austria (at our 2016 Support hackathon), we decided that something had to be done to dig us out of this mess.
Scene: Flash forward almost a year, and our issue count has just dropped to under 200!
Small aside, for our non-dev/GitHub users. GitHub is a collaborative code repository and version control site that is all but ubiquitous among dev teams around the world. Within a repository (repo), an issue can be created — this might be something along the lines of ‘Our billing system is throwing errors when a user updates their expired payment details’ (that seemed way too specific to be made up didn’t it).
So once an issue is created, everyone gets a notification, labels can be added (i.e. ‘bug’, ‘user_impact’, ‘billing’), people can be assigned to the issue, and …. there it sits. Silent. Menacing. Mostly ignored. Waiting patiently for that ever-elusive moment in space and time where the stars align with team schedules. Each issue represents a single hair, and that accumulation slowly but surely clogs even the widest of drains. Eventually, you’ll be forced to address the tangle of issues, and when you do, it’ll be a soggy, stinky mess.
Here is kind of how we did it
Nominate a ninja: We are lucky to have Manu, our cat herder and GitHub ninja, who was able to pilot this ship and clear a path through the debris (sorry if you don’t have one).

Check old issues: Search is:issue is:open created:<yyyy-mm-dd. If they haven’t been addressed and closed by now, they’re probably not going to be. Also check for ones that haven’t been commented on for a long time (change “created” in the search to “updated”).

Say no: There may be feature ideas, enhancements, and so on that fall more in the ‘this would be cool’ category rather than ‘this is important and/or essential’. Be honest when taking inventory of the issues you’ve created and be realistic about what can and can’t be accomplished.

Finally, and this is our latest initiative to keep our count ticking down while ensuring important issues still get noticed and addressed…
Assign ALL THE ISSUES
Do the search is:issue is:open no:assignee — what you are likely to find, as we did, is that most of those issues are unassigned and left sitting in the vacuum of space. So here’s how we halved it in a week:
Ask everyone to set some time aside to search is:issue is:open no:assignee author:YourGitHubUsername. These are the issues that we’ve created and left in the void. Then you have three options:
Either Close it or update it

Add more descriptive labels.

Assign it! To yourself, to the most relevant person, to both, to everyone! An issue unassigned is an issue forgotten.

After a period of time — say, two weeks — any issue still unassigned should be assigned to the author. The author can then assign it or delete it. The point is that every issue worth keeping alive should have a champion. This champion checks in on it, keeps track of it, and over time, guides it to being fixed, patched, investigated, shipped, ultimately closed.

We might have some skewed ideas of what constitutes “reasonable office supplies”

Whats Your Name Whats Your Name: Even though it might be a little surprising to realize (considering that our entire business exists on the web), our employees work out of an office and need run-of-the-mill office supplies just like everyone else. But what we deem as necessary supplies can occasionally be disconnected from reality. (Just to clarify, we did not, in fact, […]

Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday October 13th, 2017

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
I have been on a buying spree lately.  Lately there have been a lot of good letter LLLL.coms and short NLL and NNL domains available privately from domainers.  They are some of the more liquid names in our industry and it seems quite a few people are eager to sell.  I’m guessing crypto is the reason behind it.  It’s the easiest way for them to raise some quick cash.  The biggest package I bought this week was at Namepros from a well known person.  I don’t think he needed crypto cash (in case he’s reading) but he was now willing to sell.  It was a NNL, a LLN and  LLLL.com    I think if I had offered the amount I did the first time he would have sold them during our first exchange, but I had a reason I offered a little more which I’ll reveal at a later date.  The point of this is that domain investors may be back on the table for buying names.  The last few years they always wanted too much and there was a low percentage of realistic price quotes.  This last six month has been different.  Decent, non lowball numbers, have been accepted.  And I have been picking out what I consider the best names. The names you’re not going to get cheap?  One word, great two word,  and anything crypto. Here are today’s names, you have to click to see current price. 
Quote of the Day:   If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience”  -Robert Fulghum
Domain of the Day:   WeedWeed.com Very memorable and you get twice as much weed for the same price
Portfolio of the Day: 450 Domains .  No reserve.  SantaDepot.com, SimpleEgg.com and 448 More
Namejet  and Sedo Names at Auction
Paydayloans.io     A very competitive keyword with some good sales history in different tlds.  At $1, no reserve
VapingSupplies.com  19 bids with no reserve.  Great name for online sales of juice and other supplies
TattooAcademy.com   Learn your tatting skills. Show off your work.   7 bids
Checksite.com     Not sure what they are going to check for you but I know its going to be helpful
XVC.net  I don’t really pay attention to LLL.net for some reason.  And I really don’t look at them with V but this one is interesting because its Venture Capital and there’s plenty of money in VC
79T.com   Could get to the reserve.  These can get pretty high
MedicalExam.com   They will be online soon enough.  Heck I may give a few
ZingZing.com  Memorable and sounds like the newest panda given to the zoo
Poignant.com   Good name but nobody can spell it
Chicken.net   Not often you get an animal AND a meat with one purchase
Payroll.net  Another good dot net.  It takes a great keyword to even consider a dot net right now

Hikea.com   The Ikea of hiking although I would think you are going to have a little trademark issue if you go with this slogan
Otogaz.com  Means AutoGas in Turkish.  Turkey is the 3rd largest producer of the world’s largest alternative fuel Autogas. Must be a big market based on domain price
HQFTcom  Its a CHiP.  Headquarters For Trade
OfficesForRent.com  Obvious use.  1998 Birthday
WebDesignCourses.com   Online education is still money

LionKeeper.com Not a bad brand for $12
