Introductions and Getting Started Chat

@lit-codes This task is also a very useful one. A little more complicated though: Location service adapts zoom based on how active the maps are

Trying to move this to #doing I get this error: You are not permitted to view the requested resource.

That’s very interesting. Can you post a screenshot?

Also try simply adding the #doing tag to the thread and deleting the other. That’ll help narrow it down.

I think the kanban plugin has an issue with new members, although I’m not sure why

Btw, @lit-codes, we’re currently working on the master_withoutDCS branch

It feels like something is missing. When anyone posts in this category its like playing catch with a cloud. I suggest we start using the Teams function, so we can engage in team discussions, ask each other for feedback and set up things like collaborations and meetings.

it works by adding a tag, like this one: @UXers and if you want others to be able to call your attention to something they are working on/suggestion you can join the team by using the link below:

I’ve also added it into the header to make it easy for new members to see.

Hi,
I’m a graphic designer and would like to volunteer doing anything graphics related that you need. /u/travelwaves told me to introduce myself here to get more information on a logo you need. Tell me all the details you can about it, the more the better.
Cheers,
Isaiah

Groovy, welcome to the community!

travelwaves is going under @aeglobal here, and its awesome that she found you!

the best place to start is probably the UX Getting Started guide, as no-one has made one for the Graphic Design Team. The general parts will be relevant :slight_smile:

and here’s the logo task which is the most urgent: New Logo for The Public Happiness Movement

Hi everyone!

My name Bram, and I go by u/mavrenon on Reddit. I’m coming on board as a UX writer with a background in design, business, and some programming. I’m on a quest to find new ways to unite the worlds of writing and design to create better products and services for people, and I want to apply my skills to digital products like web and mobile apps. I believe stories and language are powerful ways to create a better experience for users.

I’d also love to have a hand in designing the UX/UI, but I know my strengths right now are in writing and marketing communications.

Looking forward to meeting more of you!

Welcome @mavrenonbram, it’s great to have you here!

I’ll reach out tomorrow with more info, I’ve got a task in mind I think you’d be perfect for :slightly_smiling_face:

@mavrenonbram

We want to create two pitch-decks which quickly and clearly explain two of our projects to users.

This one:

Something like this

I’m creating a Happier World Economies Summit in Davos during the World Economic Forum, to give a platform to people and projects doing great work to benefit society, who are currently ignored by today’s economic model - and to projects exploring ways the economic world can better support them

And more of a challenge, our Whitepaper itself:

https://publichappinessmovement.com/docuss/whitepaper

So it’s capturing that either, or both, in a short impactful story, ready for someone (or you if you are interested in UI too) to turn into a graphical webpage

Hey :slight_smile:

@zackmoun you can see all the Tasks here: https://publichappinessmovement.com/c/web-developers/l/latest?board=default

There’s a ‘Tasks’ tab in each category and tag-page, so you can find tasks specifically for Reactjs easily, or which skill you prefer. Follow though the Getting started guide 1st as it takes a little time to get a local host set up

@zackmoun what do you think about taking on this task?

Hi, I am Brenda. I have degree in CS, and I have worked as support for a big software company for almost two years. I am currently between jobs, and I have started learning front-end stuff (including JS, React) recently. Before I had experience with Java, Python, data analysis, etc.

My goal joining this team is to get involved with real-world projects and get hand-on experience with the skills that I learned. Also I’d enjoy making the world a bit better.

Cheers.

Welcome Brenda! Right now our two main builds are the Maps in React (Public Happiness and Homelessness, both on the same codebase), and this forum itself in Ruby on Rails, getting it ready to power our Happier World Economies Summit in and leading up to January.

You’re welcome to join in with either

Just letting everyone know that some feedback we had was that it was off putting that the most recent user to reply in each thread is shown, and although plenty of people are commenting, it’s almost always me who replies last as i’m online every day.

So i’ve created 4 accounts to use a different one in each thread. It would be great if others could make an effort to jump in and be active in supporting each other. Don’t worry about being wrong or right, its a path of growth for all of us as our community is reborn in this platform :slight_smile:
