October and November have been crazy busy. I was fortunate to sign three new clients and grateful for the additional work during these crazy times. Speaking of crazy times, for some reason, I saw a huge increase in downloads of WIWO, especially from customers in Iran. I'm not sure what's causing the surge. Still investigating, very curious...

Another week, another new client and project! Been super fortunate during these crazy times. Holiday season is coming up and that means lots of email campaigns. I sent one the other day that might have been a record for concurrent users on the site (300+). Thankfully, the web servers didn't melt :)

I'm working on a custom mini-templating language to streamline proposal writing and automate contract agreements. I started a similar project years ago but ran into technical hurdles. Now porting over my old code from PHP to Ruby and it seems to be making a difference :) I find it surprising how often I switch between the two on personal projects because some things are just easier in that language.

Another month, another launch! This one turned out to look really pretty and I got a chance to fine-tune my frontend dev chops. There's always something new to learn. I used a really cool, little known, lightweight CSS framework called Juiced CSS for this one. Take a look: www.arafanelliwinery.com

Super excited to announce the new website for souldecuba.com! I worked on the original version 12 years(!) ago and it was blast to give this venerable restaurant and Cuban sauce/marinade producer a new look and digital experience for their customers. Congratulations to Jesus, Mike and the rest of the team!

Proud to announce the launch of not one, but two websites today: sip.arafanelliwinery.com and canada.araiamericas.com These were both fun to design and code but it definitely was a challenge with homeschooling, balancing regular work and launching them both on the same day. NBD though, my record is three websites in a day :)

I don't often get to play copywriter and photographer but sometimes clients will let me take a crack at it. Here's a note of gratitude that one of my client's wanted to send to their customers during these trying times. I think it's a nice touch and a reminder of what's important. https://arafanelliwinery.createsend1.com/t/ViewEmail/r/3A1663C4C2D467A22540EF23F30FEDED #coronavirus #covid19 #pandemic
