First off thanks again for the absolute outpour of support and feedback that I’ve received in the 2 days that the site has been live. Every word of encouragement and every bug report means a lot, so thanks!
The first 2 releases went out without incident, but before tackling numbers 4 and 5 on my list below, I need to take a tangent to look at Exceptions.
Exceptions are circumstances that the application has not been built to cater for. They can be a result of an unexpected user action, a quirk in a particular browser/OS combination or as a result of a level of concurrency that the application just can’t handle.
Whatever their cause Cube Tutor has seen around 500 exceptions in the last 2 days. They typically manifest themselves as the Something Went Wrong screen. I believe that I’ve solved around 200 of these exceptions in the first two releases but there are still a lot of them!
There is a concept in development ‘Don’t live with broken windows’. If I can reduce this exception count to near enough 0, its going to give everyone out there a better experience and also means that when I do release a shiny new feature that I can see a lot easier if there are any problems with it.
So this will be by immediate focus for the site. I have very grand plans for new features so keep your ideas coming and watch this space!
