Today is launch day!

I made Codebird to solve a frustration I was experiencing daily at my day job as CTO at Deedmob.

People in marketing and product would create asana tasks for small text changes to our website almost daily, and implementing these changes always felt like a chore, particularly because it involved finding the text, changing it, creating a branch and then a pull request.

For many teams like ours integrating a content management system to manage text would have too many limitations and it would still be a pain to find and change text.

I believe everyone in a product team should be able to contribute to improving the product, and a part of creating that culture is removing the friction in contributing.

The current version is a step towards a product development cycle where engineers aren't always needed as a translator between tasks and the product.

Thank you for taking an interest in Codebird and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have below 🙂
