Have you ever seen a cuter baby? We think not. Have you ever seen a sweeter hat? Again, we doubt it. The baby belongs to our developer Patrick, but the hat can be yours. Head on over to the Equipment Shop.
Once the hat’s in the bag, click over to our Pro page, where you’ll find not one but two new perks in our awesome Deals for Designers package. An Event Apart is offering $100 off any two- or three-day registration. Sticker Mule will print you 50 kick-ass custom stickers for only $29.
Go, go, Pro! Now, on to news of the week that was.
On Saturday, the Dribbble development team — Ian, Patrick and Rich — migrated our entire operation to new infrastructure, Amazon Web Services (AWS). Unfortunately, we encountered a few mishaps and the migration took a bit longer than we hoped. Apologies to Dribbblers on the other side of the world from our Salem, MA, HQ, and to those in the U.S browsing in the wee hours of the night. (You guys know how to party!)
While we didn’t deploy any new functionality, things DID change. In addition to lowering our costs and increasing our flexibility to improve and scale our technical infrastructure, we — i.e. YOU — picked up some performance improvements, too.
Average response time is admittedly a pretty high-level metric, but we’re thrilled by the performance we’ve seen following the move. We hope you’re enjoying a snappier Dribbble and we’re happy that we can return our attention to working on our application.
