Better code and saved favorites!

Creating the Connect 211 Search Engine has been a gradual process, but we hit several major milestones today and are super excited to let you know about them!

Recently completed:

  • Updated the design system (in the code) to follow guidelines and be easier to maintain as we add more features in the future.
  • We refactored the code base in Typescript. This was a major project, but will make maintaining and updating the code base easier as we move forward.
  • This is the big one: We added user registration through AWS Cognito (an Amazon user login service). Now users can register for a free account and create a saved list of their favorite resources 🙂

Next up we’ll be working on replacing Algolia with Elastic Search for our under-the-hood search engine service. This will be the big kahuna.

Stay tuned!
