About to launch and you can’t figure out why your ping time is 500ms? Sweating bullets because the dev team told you that they’d be ready to go any day now, but you’ve blown your last five deadlines?
I won’t magically finish your project in a weekend. What I will do is give a clear-eyed assessment of what needs to change and a roadmap to getting the project back on track in the most practical way possible.
I want to introduce you to Scotty Weeks, a former Gin Lane senior developer who helped us architect and build Sweetgreen, Reformation and some of our most complex builds of the last 5 years. He’s super talented, smart, senior and all around unique individual.
My old company, Snepo, contacted me with an emergency: their groundbreaking mobile game Gotcha was about to launch and the performance just wasn’t cutting it. This was an acute case of project rescue and I dove in head first, pulling apart the server code, optimizing away until I achieved 1000x performance improvement. The game was launched the next day to great success.
