Sorry for no January update! Shortly after the New Year, I headed off to Bogota, Colombia for three weeks where I led a group of students from MIT to work and learn with C-Innova.
December was an exciting month for Painless Prototyping. The first batch of Kickstarter orders were due and they were all shipped out in the first week of the month. I managed, to mess up an order, and as another learning experience, got to write up my return and replacement policy as well as establish a customer support system.
From the point of shipping out the first batch of units to now, things have been pretty quiet. I manned the support email to deal with any issues and ordered more parts for the second batch of units. I spent the rest of the month preparing for the Colombia trip, specifically my Spanish Arduino Workshop, and making all my Christmas gifts from wood.
Parts didn’t arrive before I left for Colombia so i was unable to ship out the second batch of units. Not to worry though since I didn’t promise them until the end of February.
