I've been talking to Alex and testing out the product over the last couple weeks. As someone who ends up on the business side more than the technical side, this is a great product to stay in the know quickly and easily.

Thanks for the hunt, @writerpollock . It’s really exciting to open up Waydev to the world, and we can’t wait to hear stories about improved tracking and simplified workflows. We’re also letting you use Waydev free of charge for three months to celebrate our PH launch. I started Waydev because I believe keeping development on track does not need to involve spreadsheets and progress bars. As a non-techie, I was deeply unsatisfied with the options available to me as a business owner, so I decided to build a tool I could actually enjoy using. The way Waydev works is it grabs some advanced metrics from source control (not the actual source code, of course), and compiles them into an easy-to-read number we call the Wayrank. This simple number can tell you, at a glance, if your project is on track or if it’s time to start asking questions. For context, you can compare it to industry peers or to your own baseline. I feel that, by offering a way for people at all levels of tech-savviness to develop software products, we are opening up the industry to new perspectives. We’d love to know your thoughts! Try Waydev and tell us what you think.

A very interesting product, nicely designed and backed by a cool idea ;) Can you tell me in a few words what the "Wayrank" really means?
Alex CirceiMakerPro@alex_circei · CEO Waydev, Inc.
@cosminnicula Thanks! Sure, We compile various source control metrics into an easy-to-read number that can, at a glance, tell you if development is on-track. Higher is better, but if you’re just starting out it’s best to focus on improving it every week or every month.

Awesomesauce! I can see Wayrank becoming a very valuable metric for non-technical managers & developers alike. Congrats @alex_circei, @valerica & team, onwards & upwards!
Alex CirceiMakerPro@alex_circei · CEO Waydev, Inc.
@raduceuca Thanks! This is indeed something we look forward to: better communication between Management and Development 💯
