If anybody wants to start developing it, it should not be on github which is also owned by Microsoft.
@krock @thedeltaflyer This is such just false and harmful. Just because GitHub is owned by Microsoft doesn't make it bad. GitHub doesn't use unnecessary cookies, they don't sell your data, etc. GitLab (and for the most part other code platforms of the same like) are funded primarily by ads or sale of users' data.
@ThreeBadgersInATrenchcoat This is worthy of an entirely different thread to discuss why MS would pay $7B for Github and what their plans might be to later make it profitable.
@joshbdoc @krock @flockingbird wow this is pretty interesting! Thanks for the recommendation; just followed them and reading their blog now. :) left LinkedIn last year but would still like to have some kind of professional network without everything being catalogued by search engines and big corps - looks like Flockingbird might be the answer!
No we haven't. It's a hurdle we'll take if ever we arrive there.
'till then, its just another Open Source (MIT) project with a "benevolent dictator" (the sole dev, me) at the rudder. And two "anons" helping with the model, interviews, giving feedback and so on.
@flockingbird @krock @joshbdoc How can I help with the project? I see it’s in Ruby which I don’t know unfortunately, but at work I’m the informal “I wanted to see if X tool could do Y so I messed around with the menus and options until I figured it out; check out my instruction manual in the uploads :)” kind of person. Any use for a person like that on this project or any other ways to assist?
Next week I'll spend some time in getting the TODO's and tasks online and categorised.
I certainly think there's thing to do for anyone. From writing up and categorising ideas, tasks and todo's, via investigating existing tools, templates for "resumes", to actually writing code.
Code is in Ruby, but we don't use an MVC framework like Rails. Instead we chose "event sourced" so that any tool/db/program that can "do stuff on commands" can be bolted on.
