#Release 01 - 11th April 2019

We work according to Scrum and place the value orientation at the center of our actions. In this sense, we realize the relaunch of our website in an agile manner.

We would like to give you a peek into our work and thus make the iterative process of relaunch transparent. In the current sprint, we've defined the following priorities:

  • The relaunch has come and it's spring again:).
  • Show the heads behind it.
  • Get to the heart of the service offering.
  • Contact options? Logo.

#Release 02 - 16th April 2019

In Release 02 of the current sprint, we continued to work on the components in addition to optimizing the indexing capability for search engines and social media channels. The following changes have been made:

  • Our in-house developed Prerenderer ensures that the page delivers the essential content even without Javascript running.
  • The new footer component, which can be found at the bottom of every page.
  • Continuous Deployment: The page is automatically updated in the background by Microsoft's service called DevOps as soon as we submit new changes. Low error rate, saves time and especially tons of nerves ;)

#Release 03 - 18th April 2019

In the third release, we now present the first launch of our new team page! We tackled the following topics:

  • The team page, which you can find here.
  • Meta information (such as title, image, etc.) needed to share content in social media channels is now also available. As a result, the correct texts and pictures end up in the intended posts. ;)

#Release 04 - 26th April 2019

This 4th release includes not only technical modificiations (e.g. optimized PWA (Progressive Web App) behaviour), but new content as well, like the new Augmented-Reality page. Also new:

  • Caching of images in PWA-Mode: images that were rendered at least once already will be available without an active internet connection if you use the website's PWA, due to them being cached locally.
  • Our priority topic 'Augmented Reality' has its own page now. There you can find general information regarding the topic in addition to one of our AR projects as a use case: PHVision — “The Science City of the future” as a mixed reality experience for Microsoft HoloLens.
  • A Priority Plus Concept based main menu, which allows for horizontal scrolling for mobile devices to enable clean navigation between pages. The importance of all menu items increases from right to left.
  • Our contact information moved to its own page and includes directions to our office.
  • All of our social media channels can be found in the footer, which you should definitely follow ;)

#Release 05 - 13th May 2019

Release Nr. 05 is not so much a release update in the proper sense, but more of a status update. The reason being a trip of the whole INSPIRATIONlabs team during the time between the 4th and the 10th May to the largest metropolis of the northwestern United States: Seattle.

There we experienced places of interest such as the dizzying Space Needle, the culinarily noteworthy Pike Place Market, one of the oldest markets of the USA and the breathtaking Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP), which features exhibits of Jimi Hendrix and other famous musicians.

The main attraction was, however, this year's developer conference by Microsoft, visited by thousands of international software enthusiasts, the annual Microsoft Build in the Washington State Convention Center, where one can experience interesting lectures and presentations by employees, CEOs and CTOs of Microsoft and partners... and we were there!

Besides future-oriented presentations of impressive software by students in cooperation with Microsoft we also got unique impressions regarding topics such as Augmented Reality mit der Hololens 2, Azure Cloud and Azure IoT.

For the finale everyone went to meet up at the CenturyLink Field, the home field for the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders FC. Having been reserved specifically for the conference visitors, Microsoft invited to Silent-Disco, various sports challenges and, of course, food and drink.

We hope to be able to share the knowledge we gained in Seattle with all of you, with pleasure during the realization of a joint project.

#Release 06 - 21st June 2019

Since regular (security) updates of our systems are indispensable for us we aim also to keep our website up-to-date. In addition the main update we optimized the prerendering process and tweaked some contents. The changelog is as follows:

  • Update of Stencil 0.18.X to 1.0.X; besides the improved Stencil prerenderer this update entails optimized test mechanisms of components, a more flexible testserver and optimized bundling of files, leading to the overall filesize of the website being smaller than ever, consequently improving the performance in browser and PWA.

  • We are also working on a new Team page and the main menu. Expect more exciting news! ;)
