The last few years here at DevCentral we've seen fantastic growth and it's thanks to all of you! We've talked with you at industry events, on the streets, at user groups, and online in the community. Your message is loud and clear. You want more. We're getting ready to do just that and here's what you'll see coming very soon.
Changing Launch Platforms
To meet your global needs and provide new and supportable capabilities, we decided to change platforms. That's a big undertaking especially since we made the crazy and obvious decision to bring along all of the content with us. That's right, we're bringing what makes DevCentral great along with us.
We're bringing over:
All of the articles
All of your questions and answers
Your fantastic codeshare repository
All of you, our users and your DevPoints
Your user-to-content relationships - this one was tough, but we made it
A community is only as good as its members, so our first responsibility was preserving your contributions on our new platform. To offer anything less would be a disservice to you and your participation. Thank you for being part of what makes DevCentral great.
A Fresh Coat of Paint
The primary goal with our platform switch was to ensure a successful content migration, but that's no fun without some improvements to the user interface. We worked at improving your engagement with questions, codeshare, and with each other. Out of the gate you'll see:
Content preferences to tailor your home page experience
Preset filters to get you content you want to read
More content per page
Improved replying and interaction in questions
Improved User Profile with better following & bookmarking features
Private user messaging (that works)
And so much more...
We could keep going but it's easier to say we improved the DevCentral experience from top to bottom and we'll continue to do so with your feedback and our thanks.

The DevCentral team is hard at work in our last phase of verification and are excited to show you what we'e been working on. We will follow up with you regarding how we're going to manage API documentation next week but won't stop there. This whole process and program from start to finish is for you and thanks to you the DevCentral Community. We'll continue to do great things together and are quite excited to keep on growing.
