You’re an avid web designer or developer. It’s your thing; you love it, you breath it, you live it. If someone asked you what your passion was, you’d answer cool apps in a heartbeat.

But, how do you design and develop them quickly? How do you make sure you get that sweet idea that’s been bouncing around in your head out to the waiting public, without wasting time?

What toolchain do you have in place to let you (and your team) go from concept through to finished product — quickly?

Developing a great website requires a lot of work. Besides the development process itself, there are a lot of things to consider. Think about SEO, content, optimizing every single page with a clear call-to-action, and so on.

This is big news for us. Because: This is the end of bug tracking as we know it.

Usersnap is now real-time

There’s a new huge product update coming to your Usersnap account. And it’s called real-time. Yep. Usersnap is now the first – and only – real-time bug tracker available. Isn’t that big news!

Also, mobile and smart devices have become so significant today that a website cannot afford to work at snail’s pace and without the proper optimizations.

We – as a bug tracking tool – have seen many issues on websites which not only killed the website performance, but also lead to unhappy users and customers.

Here are the most annoying issues which kill website performance and make users unhappy.

Maybe you’ve heard the news. We at Usersnap launched a little side project, called bugtrackers.io. Displaying stories of digital crafters and showing real people behind pixels, bytes and bug reports. That’s the vision for bugtrackers.io.

Starting with three interviews bugtrackers.io went live on April 16th. Following some great feedback on our social media channels as well as through direct feedback, bugtrackers.io experienced a great start. Within the first 4 hours after putting the platform live, more than 1.000 unique visitors stopped by and spent more than 5 minutes on the site (average session duration: 5:02 min.).

Although the launch just happened a couple of days ago, there are some fresh lessons learned we want to share, since they might help you for your next project. Here are 6 things we learned when launching bugtrackers.io.
