Hello again, we hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years! Now that 2014 is here, we thought it would be great to post another little update about what we've been doing.
Clover Sites 3
To kick things off, we've been making tons of progress on Clover Sites 3. As of last week, we've finished laying the foundation for the rest of Clover Sites 3 - and all of the core functionality is in place in the brand new Greenhouse. (In tech speak, we've written well over 100,000 lines of code!)
While there's still lots of work and fine-tuning to be done to make everything look and feel amazing, we're now able to create a new Clover website from scratch and edit all content in the new Greenhouse - which is a pretty huge milestone for this new product. There are so many technical pieces and creative problem-solving that have gone into building this, so it's really fun for us to see all the parts starting to work together.
Now we're making more site designs, working on the new dashboard and new media player (which you get a peek at in this post), and continuing to build and style all the remaining pieces that will make Clover Sites 3 great for you.
To help us push forward even faster, we hired two new developers last year and are continuing to expand our product development team. Nick and Greg joined us as Web Developers a few months ago and we couldn't be happier to have them both here at Clover helping us create beautiful things for you. We were able to coax Nick away from his role in the bay area back to his hometown here in Newbury Park, and as a result, we found Greg almost literally down the street from our offices! They are both amazing at what they do and have been an incredible force in moving us forward, throwing their full weight behind Clover Sites 3 with the rest of the team.
There are also at least two more design and development positions available that we're actively looking to fill. Particularly, we're looking for a Front-End Developer and Front-End Designer. So if you're one of those or know of one and would like to be a part of creating Clover Sites 3 and other meaningful products, please email a resume and cover letter to email@example.com
As always, we would love to be able to give a specific date for when we're going to launch all of this goodness. The problem is we've learned the hard way that even the most detailed internal development schedules have a tendency to be a little misleading when it comes to the extremely detailed work and problem-solving that goes into building such a large product - not to mention the effort that comes even towards the end as we make sure everything looks and feels exactly right for our customers.
With that said, the best estimate we can give you is that we'll be launching Clover Sites 3 later this year. We'll try our absolute hardest to give a more detailed estimate as we get closer.
We know it's been a while since you've seen anything new we're working on, so here's some more shots of Clover Sites 3!
