Here at Vector, we take web security seriously. When security bugs arise in the tech world, we have your back. Our response to the "Cloudbleed" bug is just one of our highlights from this past month. See what else we've been up to!
- When we took over DevDemon, we promised you that we would update many of their ExpressionEngine add-ons. We've already released Channel Images 6.0.3, with some bug fixes, Forms 4.1.0, featuring some new additions and bug fixes (including for PHP 7), and Channel Videos 4, with added ExpressionEngine 3 support.
- We also just released CartThrob 3.1 for ExpressionEngine with custom Stripe metadata, better MySQL5.6 and PHP 7 support, and more!
- On February 17, 2017, the "Cloudbleed" security bug was discovered, putting millions of users' private data at risk. As part of our commitment to web security, we built and released a free, open source app to the public to determine if you had been affected. You can download the app directly (Mac OSX and macOS only), or view the source code on GitHub.
Our work for Zagat is now featured on Google's Cloud Platform site! We chose Google Cloud Platform as the backbone for the Zagat website that we built because it can scale on demand, is stable, and allowed us to add new website content and features on the fly. Check it out!
Vector Project Manager Matt Brown wrote a two-part blog series on the importance of documentation. We love sharing helpful tips within our communities, and we hope you'll find these as useful as we did!
During our work with Yoga International, we learned that they do planks during their meetings. So, to celebrate the launch of our impressive Yoga International App, we held a company wide Plank Competition! We started at 30 seconds and worked our way up to 60, 120 and 240 seconds. Andrew was the last man planking at over 6 minutes in the third round! You might say he's a "core" member of the team!
Starting as an intern in July 2016, Vector Developer Jess Kustra is now a full time employee. As we continue to celebrate Women's History Month, let's give it up for women who code!
After some sporadic snowstorms in NYC, we are looking forward to putting our boots away and enjoying the outdoors! See you next month!
