Diario del capitán, fecha estelar d637.y37/AB

Alright, I know the saying isn't exactly like this. I wanted to give the famous Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars by the American author Norman Vincent Peale a little twist.

We have just wrapped up our fourth year of operations, running our specialised Ruby on Rails & Angular development agency, and we wanted to share the things we've learnt in the last year in this post.

It's that time of the year again. We have recently concluded our third year at MarsBased, and we want to share with you what we have learnt in the last 12 months running our fully-remote Ruby on Rails & Javascript development consultancy.

Time flies! It feels almost like yesterday, but it was actually three years ago when we started operating this humble company.

During the past year, 2016, we were involved in a lot of interesting initiatives: over a dozen different development & design projects, growing Startup Grind BCN to over 120 people per event, hiring two more people, working on internal projects (check our last post about our frontend framework called MarsMan) and many more.

In this post, you will find a month-to-month recap of what we've been through during 2016!

This is a follow-up to last year's Lessons Learnt: One Year Running Our Own Business, in which we shared all we had learnt in our first year operating as a development consultancy in Barcelona.

After two years, we're stronger than ever. Alive and kicking.

Time flies. We have been so busy this year, that we have barely had time to look back to all the things we have accomplished thus far. Actually, it’s been a year and a month since we legally founded MarsBased.

One of the companies we look up to is Dockyard. They run a very inspirational blog, where they publish their experiences. This is a small homage to them and to this post, where they described the difficulties they faced during the first six months running a consultancy.

Here’s what we have learnt in this first year of operating full-time as service providers.
