Moving Day!

06/19/12

Hey, it’s been quite a busy month. Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

So Maker Faire was a huge success. The booth was flooded from open to close both days, with a good mix of people who had read about us in the few days between when we unveiled and Maker Faire weekend, and those who had no idea what the Imp was about.

Peter and Shaun came in from the Cambridge, UK office, and it was the first time the whole team was in the same place at the same time. In the end, we couldn’t have hoped for more. We made a lot of new friends and business contacts, talked ‘til our voices gave out, and were honored to be awarded an Editor’s Choice blue ribbon.

MAKE Magazine interviewed Hugo on video, and Engadget came by to run us through our paces, also on video.

Back in the office, we’d outgrown our digs, and Moving Day quickly approached. We ended up getting keys earlier than we’d thought and so quite suddenly we shifted from development to translocation!

With room to breathe and room to grow, we’re fast at work getting the service ready for the Developer Preview (and if you’re interested in development but haven’t yet subscribed to the Developer Mailing List, now would be a splendid time to do so.
