Introductions and Getting Started Chat

Howdy, Ya’ll!

Names Mario i’m from Texas and i am a react developer currently working for the University of Texas.

While i am no expert i do consider myself pretty good at solving issues and i really want to help contribute by adding new features or fixing current bugs. I am very good with the front end though i do not have much experience with ruby on rails most of my back end experience is with node/express & python :slight_smile: . I am hoping to learn from this project as much as possible and i feel it will help me grow as a developer. (can only do so many things at home and work before hitting a wall)

anyways i hope to contribute and learn from all of you

Welcome Mario from Texas. Myself, @ArtyS did a lot of the building on the React side but are mostly advising right now until our schedules clear up a bit. @tmcnulty is great for backend and sys admin support, and @syl is created Docus (the integration between Discourse and our React maps). He’s very knowledgable and keen to help with anything relating to the integration.

oh, it’s in the Getting started guide but you don’t need to remember all the names right away. You can just use an @ uxers, @ReactMeteor or @SysAdmin tag anytime to bring voices into a chat or issue you’re working on.

Hello!

My name is Carlos Henrique (caike08) and, I’m a front-end developer. I come from Brazil, and I have a BSc in Systems Analysis. Right now I’m in a reallocation process, and soon I’ll be living in Prague, so I may run a little bit out of time in the next weeks. But I hope I will have more time to help you guys once I set up everything there.

As background, I have worked for almost three years in an NGO called Solidaridad Network, where I work with Ionic/Angular mostly, but also had some contact with React. Since I learned how amazing it is to help people with technology, I promised I would try to help with my skills, hoping to create a better world.

I’d say I’m good with CSS, but I’m looking forward to improving my skills with React and help you guys with this spectacular project!

Cheers :slight_smile:

Welcome @caike08 and @vutran. Its super exciting to have all three of you joining at the same time so you can chat with, build with and support each other as you get going.

I’ll tag you all in a few pre-existing tasks. You’re also welcome to review the current site to see what you think you can improve and suggest your own tasks for us all to discuss and give the green light, or adapt together.

Follow the getting started guide, and i’ll try to track down the latest settings.json file and send it to you

Hi all, I’m Dan, a front-end developer who works mostly with React and TypeScript/JavaScript. Looking forward to helping out however I can! I grabbed this issue here to start with:
Add ‘unknown/forever’ button in the ‘until’ window when creating an event

Welcome Dan it’s great to have you here.

That’s a great 1st issue to take on as its instantly useful for users and shouldnt get too complex.

We are planing to separate out the 1 user form into three specific ones, so one of them will have that option auto-set to be on, while the others will have it available for users to switch on or off. Keep that in mind while working on it. Oh, and search for the documentation for i18n. Basically any text the user can see is called from the i18n folder so we can add language support, or update it easily.

@dgreuel how are you getting on with your 1st task? :slight_smile:

@Mateo do you want to contribute to the positioning of the forever button? some events/resources might be repeating forever and we’d lose them from our database if users aren’t guided to selecting that option. they’ll probably just put it for a week/month/year without an easy ‘forever/unknown’ option.

Hello,

I would love to help here but I don’t think I’ll be able to deliver as I am helping for another website, an event for June and an app with a friend these days, besides my daily work.

Once I’m finish with all my side project I’ll let you know so I can be more useful! :slight_smile:
Regards

@scottrobel @Mateo. We’ve got Team calendars on the site now so anyone can propose a video call.

I think we should also have a monthly full community call, which i’d like to set up.

What would benefit you guys more? the full community call, or an all-web devs call (which would be able to go into technical things more)?
