A lot of things has happened in 2017, so here's a little looking back before the holidays.
Summer and its mix of sunny days and heavy rain has arrived here in Denmark, and we hope you'll all have an amazing time in the sun (or in the snow, for you guys on the southern hemisphere). Before the holidays really kick in, we would like to take a quick look at 5 of our highlights from the first six months of this year:
In the beginning of the year we decided to make a Scrum-series, where we tould about our take on scrum - which isn't exactly text book, but has been tweaked for our needs. It made us a take another look of our processes, but the best part was your response! We got mails and comments describing how you could use and implements parts of what we've done, and that really motivates us to do more content like that:

2) Slope System was revealed
In March we revealed a product we've been working on for a while: The slope system.
The system solves an ancient roofer-problem: They have to cover heavy rolls of tar paper up and down the roof by hand.

3) Patents are trending
In April we spend a few days talking with governments bodies and digging into recent patent trends, and the research showed that patenting is growing. We decided to share our finding on the blog, and once again it was really rewarding to get your feedback - some of you could use it in your own work and others had addition data.

4) The company ferry!
As a company in a city full of canals - with an office located a few hundred meters from a harbour - we've wanted our own boat for years. And with a little help from a 7-year old it finally happened this year - and even got turned into a product with is sold online:

5) The CE mark
2017 also became the year, where we started self-certifying the CE mark for our products. Which turned our to be a very useful process:
