What's Happening Monday Anyway? Vyoo Launch?
Ok, so we've had a private alpha going on for quite some time now. Since it's been real private, we wanted to open it up to some more people and get it to the point where we can show off our technology to potential investors and partners.
There are a few caveats for Monday. The first is that it's going to be a small alpha - basically friends and family. The second, is that the UI is not complete. We were just handed off the UI today, so now we have to cut it up, implement the CSS, and lay it on the site. That's going to take a little time, so we're going to roll that stuff out as it's finished. There is a UI in place, it's just that it's black and white.
The matching algorithm was handed off to me on Wednesday. It was a bit late, but it arrived intact. We still need to perform testing on it. That said, we do have what we like to call the Quick and Dirty (Q&D) method online, up, and working right now. It's called the Q&D because it's a very straightforward implementation of a matching algorithm. While it works, it's not as precise as what we were handed off on Wednesday.
So I'm setting expectations for what's coming. The sites ready so we can show potential investors what things look like. It's been a long road to get here, but I want to temper my excitement and yours, because there's still so much work ahead!
