    I pretty much just go to jade.co.nz/jade which redirects to the Developer Center part of the website. Saves wading through the chaff of all the other Jade Software Corporation products etc to find the link to the developer center. Normally I want to refer to the downloads for current versions of Jade, white papers, or updates for CardSchema. I also have a bookmark to the online help as that's normally quicker/easier to search than the pdf versions of the documentation and/or to send a direct link in the doco to a work colleague.

    I'm still keen to see a developer news feed (https://jedi.ideas.jadeworld.com/ideas/JAD-I-405), which could just be setup as an RSS feed or something similar initially until the content it generates warrants being embedded into the IDE. Main benefit of this approach in my view is that we don't have to check the website for new information, and JADE experts/developers have a piecemeal approach to sharing useful information about what they're currently working on (that's easier for us to absorb), whether that be changes to the JADE platform, or interesting/difficult problems they've solved in an innovative way that others could learn from.

    Mostly I look for geek help on the Jade site. Every couple of years I will download the trial and look at the latest features.

    I think the site is well marketed, however I get lost each time I visit the main site.

    IMHO it should take the end-user through a process, irrespective of their role. If I was thinking to sign up with Jade I'll get all the information about why trust Jade but will keep yelling in my head "Yeah, but how do I sign up!". I keep scrolling to the bottom of the pages off the main site and I am still lost where to from here.

    Again that's all in my humble opinion :)

    I use it quite often for the online help:


    from my point of view the website homepage is a bit confusing as the Jade platform information is near the bottom which is what most prospective clients would be wanting to find more information about when you say your technology is written using Jade software. Maybe there needs to be more distinction between the platform and Jade's products. I've got a radical idea for you, keep the Jade name for the platform but for the product side of the business pick something new :D

    I only use the website to download JADE or CardSchema, and over the years this has gotten harder and harder to find.
