Roadmap Update

Glimesh September Roadmap Updates

Open the Full Image

We’ve made a lot of progress on the road to our launch! We’ve also got one consolidated roadmap for all of the various business functions we have so we can stay completely on track.

Minutes

  • We’ve had a slow week in terms of growth, but we think that’s okay
  • Our user base is getting really large! Over 2,000 people will be getting an email the day we go live!
  • Next functionality step with OAuth will be allowing you to update your stream name for example.
  • Can’t buy the merchandise yet…sorry, but it’ll come very soon!
  • Paco anticipates inviting some members to the community team within the next week.
  • If you’re interested in translating the platform, reach out to mja000!
  • We discovered a new thing for the FTL test stream called Mountains (thanks Paco!)
  • Showed off our API code live on the stream! Documentation for the API is on Github.
  • Unveil the roadmap!
    • Broken down into three different branches/teams
    • We’ll turn on subscriptions about 2 weeks before launch. Streamers will be able to go in and set up their accounts so they can be set up for payouts on day 1
    • Need to make our emails look less spammy
    • Need to establish an api internally to communicate streamkeys
    • If you’re interested in working on FTL and have a background in C++, networks, like pushing bits around, come find Hayden in the discord!
    • After 400+ hours…FTL decided to die the moment we talked about it
    • Design goes hand in hand with all the other features to make sure we have a consistent look and feel
    • The 2 weeks before launch will be the busiest time of our lives getting prepared, but it’ll all be worth it
