Digital Countdown Timer (open source)

September 17, 2018 at 10:05pm

I made this quick web-based utility, posting here if anyone else finds it useful:

A digital countdown clock used to timebox your team discussions.
Built out of the need to stay on task with remote employees, where a physical timer does not translate well.
I couple this with CamTwist to update my avatar over video-conferencing (Zoom). This passively let's everyone know how much time is left for a given timebox.
(Inspired by the Time Timer MOD®. They have a great iOS/Android app!)
