Thank you for your patience and support as we worked to upgrade the www.warmshowers.org website. We recognize the importance of continually evaluating the ways in which technology aligns with the needs of our hosts and riders. Our website was originally created by a dedicated group of volunteers to serve as a central information hub for the organization. The site has naturally grown and evolved over time into a primary gathering place for our community. With the boom of mobile technology over the past decade, we knew we needed a responsive and mobile-friendly site and wanted to be sure that we could provide accurate and timely information to our members from anywhere in the world. Another primary goal of the upgrade was to bring connections between the Warmshowers.org community into the site with photos, more robust profiles, and different ways to connect through our social media channels. Behind the screens, we needed an upgraded customer database platform which could handle growth and allow the organization to safely serve our hosts and riders. We are thankful to those who came before us. Our founders started Warmshowers.org with a vision of sharing information - and we strive to continue that vision for many years to come.
