With the holidays approaching and 2018 quickly coming to an end, we’re eager to relax and reflect on the year that was. For everyone in our community who has helped us grow Fly and put your trust in us to deliver super-duper fast applications and festive sites… we thank you!
Now, let’s take a little trip down memory lane…
Fly Edge Apps
A few Edge Apps features we’re thankful for
Fly’s caching API reads from and writes to regional, in memory cache servers. You can do things like rapidly deliver HTTP requests, cache personalization data geographically close to individual users and protect your app from unwanted downtime.
By September, we’d fully open sourced our runtime. We wanted to connect more with our community and give our users the power to shape the tools they use. We’ve learned a lot while growing with you, and we continue to invite you to submit feature requests, help improve our docs, follow development, and anything else you can dream up!
We’re thankful for Google Lighthouse, the super simple open source auditing tool we use to increase the quality of web pages and apps. With the ease of their Chrome extension and one quick click, we get a score from 0-100 (the lower the number, the more work to be done) and are able to make changes to our sites based on their recommendations. Check out our one-stop-Lighthouse-shop for resources and articles on how to improve your scores using Edge Apps.
Conferences, meetups, podcasts, oh my!
Thank you again for all of your support this year… we can’t wait to see where 2019 takes us!
