Five years have gone by in a blink of an eye. Valiant is about to take on the joyful (painful), exciting (dreaded) task of moving! We’ve had a good time in our current office, but we’ve outgrown it, and we’re also tired of its “quirks” and inefficient layout.
One nice aspect of our upcoming move is that it will be in-building, meaning we wont have to bring our things to the street or rent a moving van. Just haul our stuff up the stairs and plop down in our new office space. Interestingly, this will actually be our fourth space in the building, after:

In the following posts, I’ll recap both the steps we take to move smoothly tech-wise, and I’ll also include the non-technical experiences (and how we address them) that are part of every new office adventure.
Stay tuned, and wish us luck.
