Upcoming Events: Downtime for performance optimization - The dev and ops team are doing some performance tuning on the feedly Cloud to address some of the slowdowns identified last week. The service will be slower as a result today (Saturday April 23rd) and tomorrow (Sunday April 24th). We might need to take the service offline for 2 hours later today to upgrade and restart some of the data nodes. Sorry for the temporary inconvenience and have a great week end! /Seb, Kireet, and Edwin
