My goodness it’s been hot this week ☀️ Averaging 30º in London… and it feels a hell of a lot hotter inside without air conditioning.

Here’s hoping the sun stays put through the weekend.

We had an AMA today (transcript here), so this update will be quick.

The network engineering team spent the week pushing a major update to mainnet live. There’s more to do and there have been a few hurdles, but in the main it went off smoothly.

Arthur will be posting an article about it early next week.

We are continuing work on the new site for edge,network, which is scheduled for live next week.

The team also made an significant update to API to store collection schemas in the database, rather than the filesystem. This reinstates endpoints for creating, modifying and deleting collections and includes backwards-compatibility with file-based collection schemas using something we call “collection seeds”. This will allow us to create interfaces for content modelling within our SaaS proposition.

They also removed the version portion of collection URLs in API, simplifying the URL used by data consumers.

A list component was added to our interfaces, allowing editors to insert, update and reorder entries within a field.

And they made a start on the migration of our existing documentation to reflect the change in focus as we roll out the Edge rebrand.

We made a number of updates to integrations with Signify (a fraud prevention system) and Nimble (a streaming media platform) for one of our customers.

A number of regional offices at one of our larger customers have expressed interest in migrating to the latest build of our platform. We’ll be following that up next week.

+We had a handful of meetings with prospective customers for the network

+We put a lot of flesh on the bones of our strategy for scaling the network effectively as part of the core approach for our go to market

+We delivered integration docs for CDN to a new property that will be moving to the network

And that’s it from me! I hope you enjoy your weekends 🙂
