Day #18 & #19 – a weekend recap

Topher @toadally

Spent the weekend largely chilling with my wife and the kids. But I did knuckle down and work a bit on the little side project from this. I’, pulling the emails written for the platform, making them a bit generic, and getting them ready for release. Have them up for sale either Monday or Tuesday, and I’ll do a proper post about that.

This week I’ll be releasing the emails product, and adding in proper rate limiting on form submission. After that I want to move the transactional emails out of the routes and into templates. That way they can be more easily edited, and pulled only when needed.

That’s it for the recap, work was really very minimal this weekend. Head over to the Facebook group though and join us!
