We have a server!

A few days ago our server got provisioned and we’ve been tinkering with it ever since. We had a few teething problems, which took a few tiring hours of our time, but things are fundamentally working now!

We’ve now mostly been testing deployments and running book imports. We’re working really hard on making the import process as fast as possible, because we’ll have a lot of books to import very soon and we don’t want it to take forever! And of course, we’re continuously improving our logic around normalizing title and series names. I think we have it in a pretty good place right now… I might even dare say it’s done!

We still don’t have an exact date for launching beta yet. I’m hoping that we’ll have a better sense of when that will be by the end of this week. Fingers crossed!
