Development progress and product changes from district0x

The past development cycle has been quite straightforward for our team. As we have recommitted to full focus on Ethlance, there are only a few updates to share.

Ethlance itself has been receiving a broad range of updates as new developers tackle unfinished problems. Following on from our last update, we managed to wrap up many portions of the social logins using LinkedIn. We constructed an Orb for CircleCI which was used to drastically speed up how we’re conducting tests. We’re continuing to migrate server namespaces to ShadowCLJS. The ongoing problem here is with our tests, which need to be completely rewritten for Shadow-compatibility.

In essence, we are seeing an inexplicable spike in requests on our node that appears to be some part of our architecture now DDoSing itself. We’ve pushed an update to rectify this, and will monitor its performance going forward.

A final problem we’ve experienced before and are now re-approaching is the lapsing of our website https certifications. We’ve developed a bot that’s meant to renew certifications automatically, which has worked in the past, but failed recently. A better, longer term solution we’re now considering includes a fully-fledged load balancer with instanced rules for service traffic.

Besides this, we’re continuing our push to hire new developers. Check out our job listing below.
