Nothing is good enough for the Piktochart development team.

Our coders are perfectionists. And they have a new leader. Chao has recently been named Chief Technological Officer – a role led by Andrea in the past.

“We know we hardly have the perfect infographic editor app (yet) – still we try. And we will stop at nothing to get it right.” says Chao cheerfully.

“Even if it means working on a weekend” he continues. His furrowed brow showing his concerns for the coming days.

Piktochart is moving up a level. But before that…

Downtime

As the first of many upgrades, this weekend the Magic.Piktochart editor will be offline for two hours. This planned outage is for a performance upgrade on Piktochart’s servers. The details:

What’s happening

In the two hours, we hope to:

    1) Upgrade the Piktochart database
    2) Update our servers for better site security

Why we’re doing this

For a better Piktochart experience. This upgrade will:

    1)Improve reaction time for our users
    2)Enable Piktochart to support future features

How it will affect you

The Piktochart infographics editor will be inaccessible for two hours on Friday, 15th August 2014 from 10:30PM to 12:30AM (+1 day) CDT. We timed this so that the majority of our users in the western hemisphere are unaffected.

If you are working at that time, please save all your work in progress and have a break while we work to make Piktochart better. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

You wouldn’t even notice the difference – just a faster, more efficient Piktochart. We’re going up a level.

Speaking of which…

The Piktochart development team is growing. And we’re looking for developers to join our team. Do you know how to Javascript? Are you in love with Ruby as much as we are? Or are you more of a back end guy?

This may just be the answer to your next career break… Check out our careers page for more information.

Thank you Chao, Hong Ming, Cloud and the rest of the back end development team for coming in on Saturday afternoon for this upgrade.
