Back in March of 2012, we wrote about our company's change of focus on this very blog, and in the past year, we accomplished exactly what we've set out to do. We launched our own product (a pos system, Change) and continue to find ways of helping some of the most hard-working people around: restaurant owners.
Unfortunately, much of our energy has gone toward Change and left Brick by Brick a bit neglected. But not to worry, you can continue to follow the adventures of the BitMethod crew on the Change Blog.
Brick by Brick will remain here as an archive of sorts, reminding us how far we've come. We are very proud of the thoughts cataloged here and hope you've found value in them as well. Thanks again for providing us an audience and now, we leave you with a few of our favorite posts.

Garnering success over the past year, Eat Sleep has landed a spot in the top “Apps For Parents” collection in the Apple App Store. This collection is comprised of various apps to help parents cope with every step of childhood. Placed in the “New Parents” section, Eat Sleep sits alongside Target, WebMD and other well-respected apps.
Thus far, Eat Sleep has averaged a four star rating. This does not go without thanks and we are constantly receiving great reviews.
“This app is awesome!! I was keeping track of feedings, diaper changes, pumping, etc. in my notes before I found this app. This app saves me SO much time. Absolutely perfect!!” -mcpope
We are very excited to be mentioned in the same breath as such prestigious companies in the “Apps For Parents” collection. Yet, there is still plenty of work to be done.
Stay up to date with Eat Sleep by following @EatSleepApp on Twitter. We thank you again for all of your continued support.
Some may call me debonair. Some may call me a connoisseur. In some circles I am known to be what Willis was in fact talking about. Really, though, I am a simple man with simple pleasures.
Recently hired at BitMethod, I am here to inject life into their iPhone baby tracking app Eat Sleep. Seeing as I have not fathered any children of my own, I am taking the bull by the metaphorical horns and owning the challenge at hand. By the end of my time here, I am hoping the phrases “Eat Sleep” and “Crushed It” are synonymous.
I am a junior at Drake University, majoring in Creative Advertising and minoring in Pizzazz. Outside of writing, I spend a lot of time running and cycling past people in a whirlwind of speed. It’s a tough life to lead, but someone has to do it.
Are you ready to surround yourself with slightly crazy, yet awesomely creative individuals all hopped up on energy drinks and passion? Then Startup Weekend Des Moines is for you. The next one is right around the corner taking place November 16-18.
Startup Weekend is a weekend-long crash course on pitching a startup and making it grow. Anyone can participate, whether you’ve got a background in development, design, business, or even balloon animals. Participants spend the entire weekend working through an idea that all ends with a five-minute pitch in front of a panel of local entrepreneurial leaders.
BitMethod is proud to sponsor this event, so get registered. It's only $50 now, but $75 later. More details can be found on the Startup Weekend DSM website.
We want someone who will nerd out on promoting Change and will find creative ways of communicating with our users and potential customers through our blog, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and email newsletters.
An energetic, goofy person who wants more out of their internship than just school credit. Someone who wants to learn and loves writing, design, public relations and technology.
This is a paid internship at our downtown Des Moines office ranging from 10-15 hours a week with recommended breaks for ping pong and Mario Kart.
We are mobile experts located in Des Moines, Iowa. We help people design and build useful mobile apps as well as build our own. To learn more about us, take a look around bitmethod.com.
To apply, send us something you've created that you're truly proud of. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
