Accepting Applications for Private Beta

2 Comment(s) | Posted | by Clay Schossow | |
The long awaited day is here.  After a year of building, testing, and refining, HiFi is entering a private beta.  While we have put more than twenty of our own client sites on the system, we have not previously opened it up to outside developers.  We learned a lot from our own clients and how they used the system -- after making tweaks based on their feedback and resolving bugs they ran into, we're ready to open the system up to the rest of the world.

While we had originally hoped to enter this phase earlier in the year, we didn't want to rush the product and release something that wasn't fully ready to be used.  To us, a complete and polished system is the minimum viable product that you would expect from a CMS.

Fill out an application here to join the beta.  We're screening applications to make sure we get a wide breadth of users and projects, and to make sure HiFi is the best fit for what you're working on.  We'll begin rolling out beta accounts to selected users at the end of the week!

Beta accounts will be free to selected applicants.  Beta users will have access to the standard HiFi  setup, including unlimited access to the CMS, full use of the API and templates, and hosting of the site on HiFi's dedicated server (includes daily offsite backup, RAID, 24x7 uptime monitoring by pingdom, and more).

We really think that HiFi is a phenomenal product, representing a new type of CMS for developers.  Here is just a short list of some of the features ready for you to take advantage of:

We'll be posting more on each of these features in the coming weeks.  We've been having great success using them for our own clients, but are excited to hear feedback from the beta group.

We want to thank everyone for their patience while we've been building a system that we know will be a welcome addition to the web publishing space.  Your support and dialogue has been extremely helpful in pushing this project to beta.
Now, go sign up, get a free account, and enjoy!

    Does this result in an update of the Recess Framework? Because I think that a lot of changes were made to the framework. :)
