It’s not every day that I can talk about my work. Most of the code I’m writing is protected by NDAs, so I rarely have the opportunity to show off what I do.
Today, we successfully launched the new website for quasardb. Quasardb is an associative database system created by Bureau 14, which is self-aware, ultra-scallable, and designed from the ground up to operate on huge data volumes at unprecedent speed. The design of the site was done by the folks at Glamrock Agency. I was in charge of taking care of the original integration that was done in XHTML, straighten it a bit by converting it to HTML5, and integrating it back into the Jekyll framework. We’ve also worked concurrently to optimize the site and the server to the fullest, and it has now a PageSpeed score of 99 out of 100.
It’s the second time I’ve had the pleasure to work with Bureau 14. It’s always exciting to work with a company that is so passionate about their product, and technology in general, as the requirements I had to meet were higher than usual. It was a real motivation, as the website had to be perfect, and I’m proud of the work I’ve put into this project.
