Contestant on I should be working on my thesis.
Hi Mikola, thank you about the love!
When you have a lot of gists, other people can fork one and write a code improved.
Here are a few notes about the decisions we made:
Yes there are services that handle syncing of video with youtube, but only because youtube's API makes it easy. It was our goal however to make this generic enough to work with things like netflix, vimeo or any video platforms. We didn't quite get there, but maybe in the future.
I also thought removing people from the experience and pushing them into twitter could sometimes be jarring. Twitter did gain us 3 things though: - Avoiding user accounts entirely while still having user data. This helped us dev faster. - Being able to treat the app like a video tweet wall. We threw this up at a bar recently and had it running for several hours with passers by just tweeting random videos to it. - The ability to re-use apps that people already have and not force them to download something else.
Like I said though, awesome feedback! I agreed with everything.
Thanks for the review. Sure I would think to develop further.
Thanks! I had a lot of fun making it and playing with voxel.js for the first time.
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. Please be sure to come back and play some more :-)
we like to make the sounds with our voices as we play. :)
Thank you for the feedback. The total npm packages are around 50k now, and there are only 3k packages with github data now.
We just started this project literally in that 48 hours, and we will try to keep working on it and improve our searching algorithm.
The ndarray query is very useful feedback for us. We definitely will take a look into this.
We are planing to do more architecture design and think how to update our metadata, improve on the UI, how to bring in community discussions.
Thanks for your vote. I fix it right now, Could you check out it again, I hope you ok:)
Yeah, it always bugged me why dropbox didn't introduce limited access to a certain folder. :)
Good points Mikola. The sensitivity of the information you enter is entirely up to you. This is something for us to think about for us going forward though, we'd want to have a heavy emphasis on security and privacy. Thanks for reviewing!
I guess the subtlety you're missing is the fact that there's not supposed to be anything to do :) You're just a planet.
Thank you for your feedback. The thing we've done that you can't get from any other child development chart online is the relationship between skills - this comes before that, this skill builds on these other skills. I can tell you, in planning my son's therapy, that's been a huge benefit. It wasn't until he was 9 years old that we realized there were skills that babies learn that he missed and when we went back and filled in those gaps, it unlocked a lot of progress for him.
I agree with you the relationships aren't as clear as they should be, and I take full responsibility for that. I broke the CSS on Sunday and didn't realize it until 45 minutes after the competition closed. Ugh.
We did consider a network graph, and our research suggested that it would be easier for more technical users but less intuitive for average users. I had a hard time seeing how to make the bar alternative work at first, but my team mates and our research convinced me.
Again, I appreciate your feedback. Thank you very much!
Thank you for the vote and feedback!
One gigantic script file is actually where diffs would work best, we think! Since there is a bit of overhead for a diff, just b/c of the structure required to encapsulate the information of added vs. removed lines, the benefits are bigger when your changeset is small relative the entire file size.
Consider if the JS being thrown down to the page is ~30K lines. If you roll out an update that changes only a few functions, a client's diff against their previous copy might only be ~100 lines.
The diff is only one part of our solution, though we thought it was pretty cool. Simply by providing a mechanism for caching the JS assets via localStorage, the system will often prevent a client from having to download a JS file altogether.
Cheers - Jason
Thanks for checking it out! Login only works if the referrer is "bout.io", but a lot of the interface for the game functionality is still a work in progress. The API works if you want to try that out, though :)
