Quick tech update re: moblog

(viewed 1320 times)
Just for anyone who is interested, over the last 2 months some things have been happening behind the scenes.

Mat used the funds from our Moblog paypal account to buy a bunch of new storage space.

And I've had some UK specialist developers look at the site. It was useful but they suggested that we keep things as they are for now as it will be too expensive for us to rebuild - the price they quoted was pretty high, like in the tens of thousands. But they were really cool and provided some really solid advice. It was still useful to have them look at the condition of the codebase. They said it basically would be much better to re-write it than try and fix what is here.

That's actually not the worst news as some information is better than none and to be fair on the old gal, as Swamprose calls her, Moblog still actually works and the speed and spam issues are less pronounced than before.

The other good bit of news is that I've learned and confirmed from quite a few people that India actually has a lot of really good Django developers now. And I have found a company who is introducing me to two different Django teams based out of India next week. Their rates are much more affordable so hopefully we'll get a quote from them before the end of the year.

If it's reasonable then we can make a clear plan to break the project into stages, which broadly speaking will be:
1. Create a staging version of the site which we can test on.
2. Migrate the site to new servers and upgrade to the latest version of Django.
3. Rip out the homepage and see if we can do new CSS on the site that will work better on both desktop and mobile.

Once those fixes are made, it then becomes possible to consider new features.

Pleased with the scale! And the "you have died" mini works a treat.
