Brewhouse 2014 - by the numbers
3 new hires
We started with Cocktails, we then hosted the Vanruby Summer BBQ, we became Boohouse for Halloween and we collected non-perishable goods for the food bank at the Mouthy Mixer.
We had the chance to work with 12 great clients. We’ve built MLPs (Minimal Lovable Products). We’ve improved codebases (read, performance). We’ve delivered complete libraries and products. Being exposed to so many talented teams was just fabulous!
