Whats New & Soon to be released

Whats updated on the site –

Week Starting .

Week starting 6 August - We are in the process of updating our website. Sorry for any inconveniences caused, we hope you like the new look and feel.

Week Starting .

Over the last few months we have been working a lot on our internal tooling and Infrastructure to make sure we are not too dependant on any one supplier of cloud services and that we have a plan B lined up should we need it.

We have also been testing our backup and restore functions, to make sure we do not get any surprises down the line should we need to be able to restore some data.

At the same time we have been working on our internal products and brands, some of these changes will start to roll out over the next week or so and we have moved all our brand sites over to support SSL as standard.

All our new sites in the future will support SSL as standard from day one.

Some of the topics above are going to feature heavily in our new site and product range going forward, the site is coming along nicely but we don't have a release date to share just yet but its very close now.

2017

Merry Christmas .

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year From JasmineDesign.

We are going to be taking a few days off for the Christmas Holidays until 2nd Jan, but customer technical support will still be available.

Week Starting .

Over the last few weeks we have been working on our DevOps story for our internal projects with regards to our build & deployment workflow, as well as our monitoring and log storage across windows & linux configs.

We are still looking at how we manage & backup the package management feeds we use across projects.

We are also looking at how Containers will feature in our internal & external projects going forward.

We have released our first ASP.NET Core Razor Pages site as part of our monitoring update, along with some serverless functions.

Our next internal project that gets under way this week will make use of Azure Functions as we push more towards a Serverless setup for some projects, as we see this as a great way to speed up our time to market for our solutions. We will release more information about this build very soon on the site.

Some of the topics above are going to feature heavily in our new site which is coming along nicely but we don't have a release date to share just yet.

Week Starting .

We have been moving more of our internal tooling and configuration to TypeScript, so that we can make the most of its great tooling and design time features which will save us time going forward.

We have started the process of building up product support around our custom built MinsterCMS, as well as adding support for ASP.NET Core & SQL 2017.

Our Node.js version and package updating has also been looked at closely to make sure that we act in the best way going forward with regards security and feature updates.

We have been looking at our Infrastructure to make sure we are not too dependant on any one supplier of cloud services and that we have a plan B lined up should we need it.

Also we have had a look at our back up methods and tested the restores onto new and old hardware, When was the last time you checked your back up restore features?

We have also been looking to make sure as much as possible of our Infrastructure is now Infrastructure as Code to allow us the fastest possible build and recovery times.

Lots of the topics above are going to feature heavily in our new site which is coming along nicely but we don't have a release date to share just yet.

Week Starting .

We have been working really hard over the last few weeks on some new prototypes, launching the GuestWeb site with its refreshed services range, which we hope to finish in the next few weeks as we add more content.

We have built a new monitoring system around our website range with built in log collection and analysis.

Testing on our new server deployment and configuration is really returning some great results, from ease of deployment, redeployment and with regards to page load. The next step along this path is to look again at the image optimisation methods available to us today.

As we have now been able to close out some ongoing projects, we are about to start on a total refresh for this site, with new and updated content along with a new look and feel which we will start to roll out in the next few weeks.

Week Starting .

We plan to take a few weeks away from updating the news page whilst we focus on project work and some major updates that we have underway.

Also over this time will be updating some of our sites to use CSS Grid, more on that in a later update.

The current plan is to return around mid June with the weekly updates, but we might return sooner if we have something exciting to share.

Week Starting .

This week we are releasing our new GuestWeb site examples. GuestWeb site is one of the products in the refreshed soon to be released product range from GuestWeb.uk.

Dovecotelodge.co.uk - Our spec was a 7 bed rural Guesthouse in the Howardian Hills wanting a mobile friendly modern website to really give its customers a welcoming taste of its property and its history along with a insight into its services and local area.

We delivered a hand written mobile first website that we feel covers this ideally with large text panels and hand drawn artwork.

YorkWalls.co.uk - Our spec was a 6 bed city Guesthouse in York wanting a mobile friendly minimal modern website to really give its customers a welcoming taste of its property, services and local area.

We delivered a hand written mobile first website and art work that we feel covers this ideally with its small snippets of text and minimal images.

GuestWeb offers tailored Websites & Web services for accommodation providers.
