edmodo – a major milestone and a big thank you
Posted by: Edmodo
First, I would like to say thank you for the support and understanding that you have shown over the last couple of days as we have worked through the issues raised as we rolled out our new platform. With this new rollout, we will be able to continue to support the tremendous growth that we have been experiencing over the last several months. You have shown us why you are the best users in the world and we deeply appreciate it. While there are far too many to mention, I’d like to thank Bianca in Australia, Veronica in Tucson, Robert in Florida, Danielle Stiles of Illinois, Brian Sharland of the UK, and all of the rest of you for helping us resolve issues so quickly on the site. Your feedback was invaluable.
Second, I want you to know that we set the auto refresh rate on the stream temporarily to 30 seconds as we optimize our databases and web servers to handle the load properly. Notifications will also be turned back on Wednesday evening.
On Saturday, March 20th, we deployed the kernel of what is the foundation of edmodo going forward. With this deployment, you will start to realize and see new features and services added at a rapid pace going forward.
With the warmest regards,
Chuck, Jeff, Nic, Crystal, Jason, Galen, Ash, Carlos, Ale, Diego, Gabriel, and Angie.
