We’ve got, you guys are coming fast, who here wants to see behind the scenes of what we are doing during out hack-a-thon? All right, so are you guys ready to see what’s happening? I have the opportunity, I get a geek out, if you see this, this is my little work station and I have all my monitors and I’m just going to do the sales and the marketing part and these are doing all the amazing stuff.

We’re doing all sorts of stuff, so I’m going to walk you around to meet everyone, there’s more people in here, some of them are in different rooms but, this is my office. Typically it’s not many people, we had to pull a bunch of desks in here, jam everyone because everyone flew in from around the world to be here. I’m going to flip this around so you can meet everybody, so give me one second here.

All right, here is everybody, what’s up. All right, this is Todd, so Todd what are you working on, we call these lines of code?

Todd: I am working on a new affiliate stat system for Backpack.

Russell: All right, check that out, so Backpack you’ll be able to see the affiliate stats a million times better and it’s looking awesome. All those green lines of code, that’s the stuff that I’m not smart enough to know anything what any of that is but that’s what makes the whole thing work, right. Is this going live in the next hour or so?

Todd: Maybe the next day or two.

Russell: Anyway is you want to see better affiliate stats that’s what Todd’s been working on and that’s what it all looks like for those who are coding guys. All right, here’s Ryan, how’s it going my man?

Russell: West Michigan, so you want to show what you’re building, what you’re doing.

Ryan: I’m going to production right now I’ve got to get some new stuff out.

Russell: Wait, you want to explain how the whole thing works, so these guys build stuff, you build stuff and then, how’s the whole production cycle work so that things don’t crash and everything?

Ryan: We have a whole QA process and automated suite of test that test our code and exercise it an make sure everything’s working before it goes to production. We’re just going through that process right now to make sure that everything’s good to go and then we’ll get it out.

Russell: How cool, so a whole bunch of bugs and things you’ve been working on and new features.

Wynter: Hello, hello.

Russell: What are you working on?

Wynter: A dashboard for Clickfunnels.

Russell: He’s not let me see this yet, so I actually can’t believe he’s letting me see this. Okay, I know that I’m not allowed to say everything, when will they see this? When they first log in?

Wynter: This will be your dashboard when you log in, we’re calling it the Launch Pad so you come. But we’re focused on comparison so this chart is comparing this week with last week. All these compare today with yesterday, yesterday with the same day last week all this. But the best part is once this money comes in it updates automatically, so you can literally have this sitting and the chart.

Russell: Just watch it.

Wynter: Money will come it, you’ll see, you’ll start at red maybe but then you’ll start going to green. You’ll see your recent activity come in, all this stuff yes, it will look better.
