In this edition of Tech Weeklies, Olavi shares his learnings from creating and maintaining a Sailfish OS app for tracking working hours, called Working Hours Tracker. It was a project he started in 2014 and has been developing and maintaining it ever since. The most recent version of the app was released in February 2021.
At the time of starting this project, Olavi had been studying for a few years, and had little real world experience in software projects. As we all know, most of the learning happens at work or when doing some side projects. His limited experience and knowledge led to some of the interesting mistakes made during the project. This talk covers some of those mistakes and the lessons he learned from them.
