Feb ’15 Code Updates

A quick run-down of what we’ve been up to lately

Optimizations

Making the site just a little bit faster

  • ¬†Reduced javascript code bundle by 25%
  • ¬†Slow connections are handled better
  • Reduced CSS per page load by 50% in most cases
  • Removed over 220,000 lines of code from cleanup and removed addon components
  • Optimized database layout and queries by several factors
  • More efficient image resizing

Alpha testing

Ideas in progress that we’re not ready to turn loose, but showing promise in our playground

  • We’re testing out being able to forward e-mails to your trip, and have it show up as a card.
  • Forward your airplane flight info email to your trip is in early testing phases
  • Groundwork for accepting money for your trips has been laid, and arrangements with a payment processor.

We’re always open to ideas and suggestions. As always, please let us know if you run into any snags — team@milestepper.com
