Another busy week begins

It was cloudy.


Went to the church for Korean class in the afternoon.  After that practiced the guitar in my home.


Next week, I’m going to be very busy. On Thursday, I will have a training class for a prospect.  On Friday I will go to Kyoto for upgrading our product.  In addition, I have to conduct tests for the other products which must be released in June.  


My private life will also be busy.  On Wednesday or Thursday, there will be a drinking party with ex-colleagues.   On Sunday, I will have a Korean certification test.  So I have to study for that.   After the test, there will be a meeting for wedding party of one of the futsal team members.   I am supposed to help operation of the party.


Keep: Try to consult with colleagues and get their agreement.

Problem:  There are enormous test cases to be conducted.  I’m not sure they are going to accept all the bugs Japan reports.

Try:  A test person will be come back from Korea. Consult with her and try to reduce the number of test cases.  Try to have her contact with Korea to know how they are going to handle the bugs we reported.

Difficulty of internal design when we don’t have an official version of software

It is cloudy.


Developing & releasing an official version of software and going ahead with the project at the same time is very tough.  In theory, we should release software first and then should think about customizing it.  However, in the circumstance where we don’t have an official version of software and there is a project that has strict schedule to follow, it is hard to decide which comes first.


Now is the very situation where we have to write internal design documents for the project, but because we don’t have a fixed version of software yet, it is difficult to design internally.


KEEP: Communicate with Korea and grasp the progress of development

PROBLEM: As stated above.

TRY: First try to finish internal design based on the current beta version of software.  If there is a crucial problem, figure out a solution.

Another very busy month

It is cloudy.


Nowadays, I get up early in the morning.  Whereas my hours of sleep is very short (about 4 hours), I feel light when I wake up and don’t want to fall back to sleep.  It never happened before.  It might be brought about by the recent travel to high place located on the other side of the earth.  By when will this continue?


I think this month is the crucial part for this project.  In addition to preparing documents for internal design, we should test 2 products to release them to the customer.   Have to do them IN PARALLEL.  It is very heavy task and I will never get back home before 12 o’clock this week.


Keep: Share task between members.

Problem: Heavy work load. There are other business matters to take care.

Try: Ask sales people not to bring other sales matters.
