Building a short-term roadmap for existing product feature development over the next year. This is one of my favorite activities as it lets me "fill in the gaps" in our development schedule with fun and interesting ideas that our users have been asking for. I've never been a fan of a static product... Even if you can't afford massive upgrades, keep the thing alive and moving forward with frequent quality of life updates.

Added a new program module to our software suite to help users manage household demographic survey information. The team moved FAST on this one... We had it designed and shipped within about 5 months. So far the reception has been extremely positive. Our existing user base has been asking for this, and there was a lot of pent-up demand for the product.

Also, PURPLE!

Implemented the Material Design language for Nutrition/Menu/Production for the sake of usability. The existing software products in the suite were homegrown and did not follow an established design language. As such, a lot of extra time and effort went into creating something from whole cloth. This will provide the developers with an existing rulebook to follow when they have questions that aren't answered in user stories, etc.
