We are being accelerated. Wait, what?

MarzeeLabs news

We love to build and deliver outstanding digital products to our clients. We bring all our culture and experience to materialise an idea into a product and we are proud of everything we do. 🤩

From design to backend and frontend implementation, we make things happen the best way rather than blindly serving and executing. Attention to details, creativity and passion guides us through this process.

Since we enjoy so much building digital products, we also have our internal projects. We developed our own static site generator stack. You have already noticed that we are passionate about the sea, so we named this tech product after a fish very common in Portugal - Besugo. 🐟

Besugo, the tech not the fish, is a perfect option for a lightweight website in which, due to budget and/or content restrains, the best option is a static site with the possibility to edit the content without having to change a single line of code. (More details here! )

Besugo and fish apart, Marzee Labs team is on the making again!! We are currently going through the process of transforming a new idea into a product.

We applied for an Acceleration Programme and we were selected!! AMPLIFICA Acceleration Program is facilitated by Maze - Decoding Impact and supported by the Metropolitan Area of Porto in Portugal.

The program is very intensive - 9 projects, 1 boot camp, 1 hackathon and 6 weeks of acceleration sessions. 😲 We have just started but we have already met incredible people and learnt so much so far. We hope to be able to tell more about this product soon!

INSPIRATION AND LEARNING

Shared by João Belchior - Philip addresses four common misconceptions about BEM and explains how and why the CSS naming convention of Block Element Modifier helps solve organizational thinking around class names.

A few years ago, I read Marie Kondo’s book about the benefits and practice of keeping things tidy. And it planted a seed in my mind about how this applies to content.

Understand whether a suggested idea or solution is worth further investments prior to spending an enormous amount of time and money, this is where Design Sprint framework by Google Ventures may come in handy.

Product development is of critical importance for technology startups: given the limited budget typically available to early-stage startups, making the right product development decisions can make the difference between success and failure.

React Native for Web allows you to build apps that works on iOS, Android, and the web using the same JavaScript codebase.

Shared by Pedro Santos - A copy-first design approach is beneficial in helping design projects of all sizes. Whether it’s a stand-alone page, such as a landing page, or website redesign, a copy-first approach can make your project more efficient.
