We at Geedesk wishes all programmers a great life and a happy future.
One fine morning a huge chunk of our users from India stopped receiving important SMS alerts. Worst part was we were not tracking this metric on our monitoring dashboard and to be honest, we found out about this from increasing customer support tickets. This indeed is very embarrassing but, I believe its a good learning for us as a whole.
We had to go on a personal trip to Tanjore in Tamil Nadu in southern India. Since I started Geedesk I have not spent enough time with my husband and kid so this time we decided to do a road trip to Tanjore, which is 347 km (216 miles) from Chennai. To justify the expense trip I decided to meet few customers en-route. We then sat down to work out the route map and the itinerary.
