Politics, Weather, Photography, and the Dog
Sunday 17 March 2013

I've fixed seven annoying bugs and added three minor features to Weather Now, including:

  • Fixed searching from the search box so you can enter an airport code directly;
  • Fixed the Last 24 hours page to show day and night icons properly;
  • Added a status page so users can peek under the hood; and
  • Tweaked a few things in the background worker process around logging and status update alerts.

A minor bug fix release like this used to take a couple of hours to deploy, because I had to update the code running on the web server file-by-file. I got the process down to about an hour—but I still had to bring the application offline to make the update.

Since I put it up in Microsoft Windows Azure, publishing an update takes about 15 minutes, is completely automated, and doesn't require taking the site down. The great Inner Drive migration continues to pay dividends.
