twiDAQ is the whale to my Ahab. 🐳 First dreamt up over 10 years ago it's been sitting on the shelf while I did "real work" -- finally, in 2021, it's getting just a little of the attention it deserves.
It's happened. It may not seem like much but this March we've actually managed to find a few sprint days to put to tinkering with twiDAQ's new mobile experience.
A few hours work goes a long way to restore some faith in a platform that has as clearly-awesome foundation... and is really just lacking a modern interface.
Already available in the AppStore, the nascent new twiDAQ app is starting to feel pretty great already!
This year, our small team plans to take a little time aside from OneSub to put some energy into getting twiDAQ back up and running.
Mostly this means finishing off a move to VueJS so that we can launch a passable mobile-web front end.
The idea of twiDAQ goes back as far as July 2010.. when we started to build out the foundations of the product you see today.
It launched and grew very quickly but the underlying engineering was not built to scale and very quickly burst through a load of glass ceilings.
