Well, the #uklockdown is sort of over? depending on where you live, who you live with and what day of the week it is.. COVID is still a major issue and will be for a fairly long time but THAT isn’t going to stop our irregular news updates!
Project Stardust part one is now officially complete! Every check in the system has now been updated with a new layout and more advanced configuration!
This part took the longest and was left till last since it involved rewriting our Content Extraction system.
We’ve rebuilt it so now you not only get alerted on changes but you can get alerted when specific things change, numbers go up (or down), regex check and much more, this change alone makes LW a MUCH more powerful tool.
We’ve also rebuilt our GEO-Redirect system to turn it into a wizard (not that one) which is much less confusing than the original one I designed (we are always learning!)
The excitment begins as we start to focus on the next most requested and ‘I can’t believe you didn’t build this before’ feature – Individual Team Logins!
The days of sharing the LW password around the office will soon be gone once this feature goes live, I KNOW it’s taken a while and I KNOW you want it now but it’s a fairly big rewrite permissions wise in the backend so I’ll keep you up to date!
Last week, we managed to escape to Germany for a few days and enjoy the fun of Phantasialand (I know not Disney, you’re shocked aren’t you)
We had a lovely time and it was good to get a break for a few days and now we are back to it!
Next Family Trip?
Possibly Disneyland Paris in September for what would have been Run Weekend but who knows these days!
This is where we try and highlight something every week that we didn’t create in the hope it gets some attention from other people (and they aren’t a usually a client so THIS ISN’T A PAID LINK JOHN..
It feels like during the lockdown everyone BUT us was creating a podcast. Andi started one and it’s pretty good, you should listen to it.
That’s a wrap!
