Last year, ImRaising was barely updated. We were a bit overwhelmed by our influx of users (thanks!) and a bit embarrassed by our lack of polish (yikes!). But this year, we have a new motto at ImRaising: GOOB! GOOB stands for Get Off Our Butts.
I tried shouting a few different acronyms at our team, like DSWA (Do Some Work Already) and DSOE (Do Something Or Else), but ultimately, GOOB just felt right.
So how are we putting GOOB into practice?
Well, Evan left school and Ethan left his part-time job to work on ImRaising. We also hired Chad as our second programmer, which expanded our tiny team from two to three. Our main problems last year were our lack of time and man power, so these changes have already helped us tremendously.
Over these past few weeks, we haven’t STSD (Stopped To Sit Down)! Evan has been working on the ImRaising SDK and the new dashboard (which are both coming along swimmingly!), and Chad has been working on ImRaising Sync (which he released today!).
Sync is an awesome application that alerts you when you receive donations by automatically updating text files, which you can import into OBS or XSplit. There’s custom sound support, and there’s no screen-capturing!
We’ll be posting a follow-up blog, in addition to two tutorial videos, to explain the ins and outs of Sync.
Last year was rough—believe us, we know—but it’s all smooth sailing from here. So thank you for sticking with ImRaising. We really, really appreciate it.
