A brief timeline of DivItUp's history
- February 2008
Scot-Irish Lads, LLC established as DivItUp.com's holding company. SMS/Email reminder messaging implemented.
- Fall 2007
DivItUp v4 coming... After almost 6 years of maintenance-free operation on spare hardware in Dustin's house, the site is readied for offsite hosting. This includes performance improvement of SQL queries, security vulnerability sweep, and user interface enhancements such as icons and logos.
- Summer 2003
DivItUp v3.1 is slightly enhanced for usability on mobile platforms as Dustin is a Treo user.
- Summer 2001
DivItUp v3 is the current version of DivItUp in use. Dustin rewrote the entire codebase from scratch, using much more PHP and Postgres expertise. Additionally, an infinite-user "pot" based approach allows for much better account maintenance and parties of any size.
- Spring 2001
DivItUp v2 was an independent study research project in college by Josh where he expanded parties to any number of individuals, as Josh had more than 1 roommate at the time. It was re-written in JSP.
- Summer 2000
DivItUp v1 was implemented while Dustin and Josh were sharing an apartment over the course of a summer internship. DivItUp v1 was Dustin's first project in PHP and Postgres and only supported 2-user parties. It was used by Dustin and his other roommates.
- March 2000
DivItUp v0 evolved in a spiral notebook on a road trip through the American West in order to split all expenses fairly.
