I have founded GoodGrids -- https://goodgrids.com . It's a tool for creating Excel files from CSV files automatically. Use it in your application to offer your users beautiful Excel downloads of data. It can also automatically extract info from Excel files, transform it, and write it to text file formats. This is perfect for automating workflows where you need to upload data to a system in CSV or other text format.

I am the Lead Developer at 15Five -- https://15five.com, which a leading employee engagement and performance evaluation system. Through weekly manager check-ins, you maintain a conversion. With goals and OKRs, you plan and evaluate your accomplishments and longer term objectives. This all feeds into a period review, which is a much better thing that the standard annual review process used by many companies today.

Building good products and services is an equal part of art and science. I have been building web applications since the prior century. I've helped deliver a couple brilliant products, seen my share of issues, and made enough mistakes to be able to see the right path, at least some of the time.
