The team has been hard at work developing the first prototype of the site. We’re very excited about what we’ve got so far. We want to start keeping everyone up-to-date with where we are, and what’s coming, so we’ll be posting a short newsletter every couple of weeks with our status. If you’ve signed up on the Rippld site, you should also be getting an update via email. Here are answers to a few questions you may already have.
What’s the first release (Alpha 1) going to look like?
We’re designing our first release to have functionality to help you connect with other creative practitioners, show off your work, and receive feedback on the things that you’re working on. Along with this, we’re building a content consumption platform that will make it easy to see news from topics that interest you and updates from your connections on Rippld.
But isn’t Rippld supposed to be a “marketplace”?
Yes! But before we invite clients to search for all our awesome providers, we need a critical mass of talent on the site. So that’s our first priority. To get us there, we’re trying to make Rippld relevant to all our users even when they’re not on the site to look for a job. But we need your help with that. Once we release Alpha 1, we’ll be looking for as much feedback as possible from all of you to tell us what we could do better and what tools you need.
When is this all going to happen?
Soon. We haven’t set an official release date yet, but we’ll keep you up to date as the release approaches.
In the meantime, if you have any questions about our product, or why we’re so excited about it, please feel free to reach out to us.
Will, Adrian, and Lander
