FastMail Advent 2017

Company

Welcome to the FastMail Advent Calendar for 2017!

Starting from our first Advent posts in 2014, when I wanted to talk about our approach to security, we've managed to produce 24 blog posts every December. We've talked about everything from low level technical improvements, FastMail values, Internet standards, and wacky chatbot interviews.

Most of what we've posted in past advent blog posts is still relevant to our current operations, so feel free to go back in time to 2014, 2015 and 2016 to see what we've written already.

One day we may run out of things to say, or choose a different format, but today is still not that day.

There may come a day when I get enough sleep and don't need coffee, but it is not this day

We've had a really exciting year, and I'd like to start like we did last year with a retrospective:
