Announcing: SiteSupportNicholas Piël | March 3, 2011
It has been some time now since the last posts, but I’ve been very busy with this new thing I am working on; about a year ago I started working on a new web-service named SiteSupport.
SiteSupport will solve the problems many website owners currently face:
- It is impossible to view the stuff users do on your website
- It is difficult to explain users how to navigate your website
Our service solves this by enabling remote-desktop like collaboration on any web application, without the need for plugins. We achieve this by synchronizing the website-state over a websocket connection. This requirement of websocket connections is the reason why I benchmarked various event-driven servers about a year ago. The benchmark results showed that the servers which used the lightweight thread model (coroutines) where among the top performers. I thought that was great news, as I prefer their clean approach compared to callbacks.
Not long after I published the post, I got in contact with Denis Bilenko, the author of Gevent and it soon became clear that we both shared the same passions: programming in Python and reading Hacker News.
And thus, I am happy to announce SiteSupport, a joint-venture between Denis and me.
