Started from scratch

“Alright so here we are in front of the elephants, and the cool thing about these guys is that they have really, really really long trunks. And that’s cool! And that’s pretty much all I have to say.”

What you’re reading here is not the beginning of a book about animals, no elephant documentary – NO, you’re reading the lines, which are spoken in the first YouTube-clip ever! If one had only known then what was set in a motion!

Wooosh – It’s all about mobile

Since we last talked about updates, a little while has passed. But that does definitely not mean we haven’t been working hard. Quite the contrary – we worked indeed VERY hard. For those of you who aren’t really interested in details, we’re going to start  immediately with the list of changings we have done 🙂

Video & SEO at its best – a new update brings the boost on Google

When it comes to updates, you haven’t heard from us in quite some time. The reason for that is not that we don’t have anything to report. No, the reason is rather that we will roll out a major update for you very soon. It is so big that it even makes us go all dewy-eyed :).

While we are working with the core team on the big update, every week numerous improvements make it into the live system in our deployment rhythms. In addition to the mobile view of virtually every page of alugha, the performance was also (in some cases significantly) improved. When it comes to languages, we currently also step on the gas: thanks to our newcomer Jonas (we will introduce him in detail), we really caught up on the languages Spanish and French, and a lot of the interface is finally available in those languages. But that is only the beginning because soon EVERYTHING on alugha will be multilingual in German, English, Spanish and French.
