Company blog online
Exceptiontrap is online for about six months now, and I decided a company blog would be useful. While the front page and the backend are localized (German & English), the articles will be written in English only. I think it not worth the additional work to write each article twice, because I'm sure all German developers are able to read English.
Why a blog? Well, I always look for a company blog when I'm interested in a product – to see if it's still in active development. I think it's also interesting for people to get insights in a company or product. So you'll find articles about new features, partnerships, and development decisions here.
I decided against Jekyll, and wrote my own blog system within the Rails application. Why? I'll write about the reasons and the actual implementation in another post.
