I am a hungry designer and developer living and working in Cincinnati, OH. I like my drink strong, my friends old, my music loud, and my work tough.

There are three people in procload’s collective.

  1. Planning and Prioritizing your Product Roadmap

    “The roadmap really should be a conversation” - Jim Semick, founder and chief strategist of Product Plan.

    Are you curious what the best framework is to plan and prioritize a product roadmap? Are you a Product Manager that wonders how often to update this tool? Listen in as Rebecca Kalogeris is joined by Jim Semick to discuss Product Plan’s annual survey results, his tried and true method of ‘value vs effort’ and his advice on updating and maintaining roadmaps that work.

    Jim explains that updating roadmaps often keeps the product conversation open, and that for how many hours product managers spend managing the roadmap each week that it’s important to share them with their teams frequently so there’s a level of transparency and understanding when something changes. Roadmaps are embodiment of strategy, building the roadmaps are a part of how you define and share that strategy across the organization.

  3. Becoming Steve Jobs Authors Brent Schlender & Rick Tetzeli in Conversation with John Hollar

    [Recorded: April 7, 2015] "Still, I was always the reporter and Steve was the source and subject; I was the ink-stained wretch, and he was the rock star. More than anything, he wanted to get his stories told to the biggest and best audience possible, and I could give him that. For my part, I could sense he was bound for even bigger things and wanted to have a front-row seat. And so the overarching purpose for our social and personal interactions for the next 20 years would be journalistic transactions. And not all of them would please him." Brent Schlender, Fortune Magazine October 25, 2011

    There have been many books—on a large and small scale—about Steve Jobs, one of the most famous CEOs in history. But this book is different from all the others.

    Becoming Steve Jobs takes on and breaks down the existing myth and stereotypes about Steve Jobs. The conventional, one-dimensional view of Jobs is that he was half-genius, half-jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who slighted friends and family alike. Becoming Steve Jobs answers the central question about the life and career of the Apple cofounder and CEO: How did a young man so reckless and arrogant that he was exiled from the company he founded become the most effective visionary business leader of our time, ultimately transforming th…

  6. Oral History of Avie Tevanian - Session 1

    Interviewed by David Brock, Hansen Hsu and John Markoff on 2017-02-21 in Mountain View CA, X8111.2017 © Computer History Museum

    Born of Armenian parents in 1961, into a working class, entrepreneurial family, Avadis "Avie" Tevanian grew up in New England, the oldest of four boys. His dad a machinist, from a young age, Avie and his brothers were into building things, but Avie alone showed a particular aptitude for mathematics.

    Having been introduced to a PDP-8 in high school, Avie enrolled at the University of Rochester after discovering they had a lab of Xerox Altos, on which he wrote several games and contributed to research. Avie continued on to graduate school at Carnegie Mellon University. Working under Professor Rick Rashid, another Rochester graduate, Avie started the Mach microkernel project, which quickly grew to over a dozen people. Based on concepts from Rashid’s Accent operating system, Mach was to be an improvement on Accent by targeting parallel processors, be highly portable, and be able to run BSD Unix programs.

    Engineers at Steve Jobs’ NeXT Computer decided they wanted to use Mach for NeXT’s operating system after they saw the work presented at a UNIX conference in 1986. Avie later attended a dinner in Palo Alto where Steve first relayed that interest. After finishing his dissertat…

  7. Oral History of Avadis Tevanian - Session 2

    Interviewed by David Brock, Hansen Hsu and John Markoff on 2017-04-17 in Mountain View CA, X8111.2017 © Computer History Museum

    In part 2 of the oral history with Avie Tevanian, Avie discusses his career at Apple, first as Senior VP of Software Engineering and later as Chief Software Technology Officer, along with other topics after his retirement from Apple.

    Avie begins by discussing how the acquisition of NeXT occurred from the perspective of NeXT, including the OS bakeoff against Be. Avie also goes into his personal relationship with Steve Jobs over the years, what it was like to work with him, and how one might convince him one was right. He then moves on to discussing the early years of the turnaround, working initially under Gil Amelio and then under Jobs, and Jobs’ return as CEO of Apple. During this period, Avie’s main priority was to turn Apple’s software group into a world class development organization and to direct key technical decisions in the development of Mac OS X, sometimes over the objections of entrenched interest groups at Apple, such as the decision to embrace TCP/IP and other open standards over continuing to use Apple proprietary technologies. Avie also discusses collaborating with Jon Rubinstein’s hardware division, Apple’s ups and downs in the early 2000s, the transition …

  8. Ken Skistimas’s Keynote talk at UXINDIA 2019

    The components of a successful design system : Architecting a system to facilitate culture change in an organization

    Over the last few years, design systems have become a solution to drive coherence and consistency across products, but so many systems experience a failure to deliver on the promise. Beyond reusable components and styling, a truly impactful design system can become a catalyst to influence the design culture at a company, but there’s not a one size fits all solution. It needs to be tailored to fit your company.

    I’ll explain the foundational elements for a successful design system, and strategies to facilitate adoption based on my experiences working on large scale systems at Salesforce, General Electric and Facebook. The common thread has been collaboration, transparency and iteration. With all the elements in place, a design system is much more than a pattern library. It has the potential to be a catalyst for significant change to how you build products at your company, ultimately delivering higher value to your customers in a more efficient way.
