Jipster let me know it's been a while since I posted here. He's right. The lead-in to Black Friday and Cyber Monday is always busy and a bit crazy.
The team has been business as usual working on content (build guide videos, etc.), working on a new layout for the site, and working on a couple other projects we can't quite reveal yet.
We've pushed out several changes recently that improve the latency and accuracy for retailer price and stock tracking. We still have one more big change to push live, hopefully in the next day or two if I can get my code together in time. Ultimately though we've put together a system that can closely track several million price updates an hour. Architecture changes are on the table to grow that to tens or hundreds of million price updates per hour. Scaling that up bit by bit is fun stuff.
Price accuracy is important to me, but the side projects right now are honestly where my heart is. I can't wait to roll back the curtains to show everything off once it is done. Until then you'll have to guess what we're working on by the hints we leave on Instagram and occasionally in our page source.
