It’s about time. We’re glad to share that Corvid is now Velo.
It’s no secret that the name ‘Corvid’ had to go. We needed a name that reflects the power of the platform and what it can really do. Short for velocity, ‘Velo’ is just that— it accelerates your dev velocity so you can build professional web apps, faster.
Want to know what it was like to be confused with a pandemic? Check out the video.
Thanks for being an amazing community and growing along with us. Feel free to explore and enjoy the new homepage. Happy New Year and welcome to Velo! 🎉
Well I'd agree about Corvid if you want to but once again Velo proves to be open to its own interpretation as shown now by Tristan
No offense but I found the name Corvid to be ugly from the get-go. Not to mention why it got even uglier due to (not so) recent events.
Velo is way better, by the way, it mean bike in French ^^
running "Npx create-velo-app..." in the command line is 404ing so is it really released?
I bet Wix experienced an increased traffic from the pandemic, something good came out of it 😂
Its not about the name! It has transformed my business in so radical way. Call it Velo, Corvid, Aids or Cancer. Its the best plataform ever
i like the new name. but the old name was also ok. i cant choose honestly. but i like wix is what im trying to say.
I mean not going to lie both sides have valid arguments.
Reason why Velo is totally open to interpretation far away from being a meaning that stands for Velocity.
Well, here is the definition of Velo by Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velo#:~:text=Velo%20or%20V%C3%A9lo%20may%20refer,%2Dwheeled%2C%20single%2Dtrack%20vehicle
Urban Dictionary: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=velo
Merrian Webster Dictionary:
you name it... it actually refers to velocipede
Thanks for the post, but sorry is not the prettiest or the right name for a development technology honestly Velo feels like old JQuery the brand needs to show case the power of NPM and NodeJS, APIs the website needs to be more technical if you want to attach skilled developers. On the other hand Velo can be anything not only velocity is totally open to human interpretation on the middle of an important meeting there is no time for interpretations it is important a defined name at least on my case when I have to present it to our clients is not going to sound powerful either robust.
Now it's not a pandemic, but it still can go viral.
Welcome Velo 😀
