On Monday, March 18th, we added a new library and a new service to our architecture. Our public website that used to be in Apache Struts 2 was revamped in React JS.

The library developed by Facebook in 2013 allowed us to optimize the performance of our homepage by almost 50%.

This redesign is also a step closer to a very first BizBiz Share mobile app.
