Platform Release 2.3

What in the world?! Platform Release 2.3?

Welcome to the platform release 2.3, the first of 2023…. 2023 how did that happen?
Best not think about it!

Hope you all had a wonderful break, filled with overeating and that feeling of guilt that comes with it. Actually scratch that. NO GUILT!! Its nice to enjoy ourselves once in a while.

Wait what was I talking about? Oh yeah platform release 2.3!

Platform Release 2.3

Highlights of Platform Release 2.3

Autobadging! Do 10 hours? you get a badge. Do 25? also badge. 100 hours? Believe it or not, badge.
There are many different badges for you to go out and get. Have fun!

OAuthentication! Oh did you see that cool thing on the sign in page?
Sign in with Google/Microsoft/G2G, yeah thats right! We got Oauthentication now! 
(Just a heads up currently we cannot link old accounts to new oauthentication requests. Stay tuned for an update on this.)

Ongoing RBOs! Some RBOs can go on for an indefinite time. We wanted our system to reflect that rather than have ones exist until the 31/12 /2099. Although there might actually be an opportunity that would exist until then…..I have questions….

Tech Debt! As any platform grows so does its tech debt. What a function starts as vs what it becomes are often very different, and code changes are made on top of the original design. In order to maintain page efficiency we need to go back and refactor this code to do what we want it to do now. That was a lot of words. Simply put, Platform Go Faster Now.

Numerous Bug Fixes! Always good to get in there with as many bug fixes as we can. As always if you have a bug please send it 

That’s all for now, Folks!

Well I hope you enjoyed the notes for platform release 2.3!

We have so much on our roadmap for 2023 that we want to talk about, but I was always taught that being mysterious is cool so we’re gonna do just that! More accurately things change a lot over design and development and that providing hard dates is something that sets us up for failure and disappointment.

What I can say is that we are looking beyond our current platform release 2.3, to deliver the best volunteering experience possible for all parties involved,
so stay tuned!
