Performance of the Ning Playground

I’d like to take a moment to mention a couple of things we are doing
preemptively on performance and scalability. While we’ve only experienced the
occasional slowdown so far (knock on wood!), we think we can do even

To this end, our development team is working away on a significant
performance and scalability upgrade that we’ll roll out in December. That will
be the first of a series of such upgrades over the next several months that
will make the system steadily more scalable and speedy even as the number of
apps, users, and content objects continue to grow.

In the meantime, if you have an app that you think could or should be
faster, please feel free to contact us
and we will help you optimize it. Performance of apps on Ning is a function of
both the app and the Ning Playground, so
we’re happy to help any developer with this as it’s something that helps
everyone on the service.

As always, please feel free to send us thoughts on the general topic at any
time, either at or
via a comment to the blog. Thanks!
