Weeknote #272

by Doug

Hello! You may have noticed some changes to the front page this week, with Favourite Finds being incorporated there. This was one of James 3’s last bits of work for us (for now, right James?), along with super-excellent designer Rich. Not quite the very last bit, as there are some small but significant improvements to search that will be deployed next week.

Currently, we’re working on rolling out the new shopfronts to everybody, which should hopefully be done early next week too, alongside fixing any issues and bugs that arise.

This is the first week I’ve been working in depth in the code we subcontracted James 3 to write for us, and I have to say, it’s really quite brilliant. It’s hard to sum up the quality of James’ work here (this is my 5th attempt!), but hopefully it will suffice to say it’s a superb foundation for everything we want to do in the coming months, and will allow us to be more ambitious and deliver many more features.

I’m applauding you, James. You can’t hear it, but I’m applauding you.

In other news, there has been some super-secret filming going on, but it’s so super-secret there’s nothing I can say about that until next week. To assuage your curiosity, here’s an artist’s impression of the day’s filming.

Oh, and after seeing how attractive I looked in the photo in Weeknote #271, I decided it was time I got out more and went for some lovely walks. Here is one of my lovely walks. There might be a prize for guessing where I was walking!*

And finally … Happy Birthday, Emily! xxx

Right, I’m going back to trying to persuade computers to behave like people expect them to – have top weekends everybody!

Doug.

* There is no prize.

Well I’m guessing you’re walking somewhere near the centre of Folksy’s world, Sheffield – but it could almost be in my neck of the woods, Kent, with the sheep and pasture. Lovely walk, either way. I’m saying nothing about the artist’s impression. Nothing except SPACEHOPPERS! want.
