Thanks to all those who have followed our journey as we prepare to launch our new consumer advisory service. The last few months have been incredibly hectic, but also very productive. While our panel continues to smoke away and build up our database of cigar analyses, our development team is hard at work preparing the website for your use.
Some of the key accomplishments of November & December include:
- Our matching engine is very near completion, and we’re delighted to report it is lightning fast. This key component is the heart of our system, as it applies our matching algorithm to identify which of the nearly 1000 cigars in our database best fit your personal preferences.
- Our user interface is making great strides toward completion as illustrated here. We now have all of the features in place for users to manage their personal preferences, and are working on the cigar lookup feature which will let you see how your preferences compare to each cigar in our database.
We’re a few weeks away from being ready for beta test, so if you’re interested in a new service which has the ability to “learn” what you love in a fine cigar and recommend new cigars ideally suited to your preferences, please sign up as a beta tester now. We’re counting on our followers to put the system through its paces during beta, and could really use your help.
Happy New year!
The Cigar Sense Team
