i3dTHEMES://interactive 23 — Good Things

Rome wasn’t built in a day.  And neither was Rasa, our new website design.

We had anticipated that Rasa would be available in our catalog by today (February 10th, 2017) however Colin was delayed four out of five days this week with an unexpected influx of general inquiries and priority updates to existing contracts.

So while we would have loved to have had it ready for download today… we’re just going to have to wait.  It was code complete last week, however I did a review of it to make some suggestions to make it better, and Colin spent the early part of the week tinkering with it.

The first quarter of the year is traditionally a very busy time of year for website updates, so we shouldn’t be all that surprised to have been delayed.

We are now aiming for next Friday, with a launch possibly sooner.

As for the code labs, this week has seen some incredible progress with refinements to the Accelerator system.  The updates that we’ve been talking about, for the critical above-the-fold style analytical engine, the defining core of the Accelerator system, and the JavaScript deferral mechanism, were both recently updated in a major revision.  Both of those pieces are now available for download through the updates system.

I’m thrilled to report that we just completed three more on-boardings over the last two days, with each of them resulting in an average page speed score of about 97/100.

We’re now getting into the realm of possibly reaching 98, 99, possibly 100/100 for some sites.

SUPER cool!
