It's the first thing everyone notices. Our home page says it takes 97.68 seconds to install our open source. Why? How did we reach that oddly specific number?
Back in the old days days, the Robusta website read "60 second install". The 60 seconds wasn't an exact number, but it seemed about right. Robusta gives developers a single pane of glass to see their Kubernetes applications, identify issues, and fix them quickly. Installation has to be fast because devs are busy people.
hmm, now should I play again? 🤩😇— Nuno do Carmo (@nunixtech) February 21, 2022
Don’t wait on this win-win deal: test Robusta and there’s swag 👍
And if you don’t have 10 nodes, then some cloud providers with free credits might help you (👀 @CivoCloud )
However, Nuno did something unexpected. He used a stopwatch to time the install and uploaded the result to a YouTube video.
It turned out that installing Robusta took longer than 60 seconds. 37.68 seconds longer to be precise.
I know most people would have just ignored it. But we really like to listen to our users. I also suspected that changing the number to something different would improve conversion rates, not hurt them.
So we updated the number. It does look a little weird.. But hey, real world data is always weird!
That said, we think the real number is a little lower. If you record a video and beat the current number by more than 10% then we'll send you cool Kubernetes swag. Just message email@example.com with the evidence.
