Building AddThisEvent with our users is the real deal to us.
We keep track with all changes made so our users are kept in the loop.

Update (Thursday, October 8, 2015)


Today we experienced a small server downtime. This was the second downtime in three years of running our service.

Server downtime is not acceptable to us and we are working hard on building a setup where downtime will never happen.

Update (Sunday, October 4, 2015)


For the past couple of months we have been working hard on converting our existing platform into a scale-able and more robust infrastructure.

Next week (week 41), we will carefully be testing our new code and in the end of the week, we will launch the new code on the new infrastructure.

During week 41 we will be exporting our database into the new infrastructure. While doing this some sections of will be unavailable for a short period of time.

Update (Monday, September 7, 2015)


Google recently added a new address (URL) to their calendar service. According to Google the "old" address will be supported for an unknown period of time. At some point of time the old address will be deprecated.

When users add an event to their Google Calendar, users will now be directed to the new address.
