Here are some notes from the "broadcast" portion of the meetup!
dmitri.shuralyov.com — Has many things to demo since last time! Left himself some to keep working on projects tonight. Most of his work is in Gerrit but it's main notification system is sending emails. Last time he was collecting those emails. But in processing the emails he realized they were missing info like user IDs and avatars. Changed to use the email as a notification of a notification - to trigger a fetch via the Gerrit API to grab the information he wants directly, looking for changes between the last time he updated and the time of the email. Been working on notification displays since. Has a reverse-chronological timeline where notifications flow by. Finds it less stressful than GitHub's notification system!
martymcgui.re — Completely forgot his work on timelines and re-styled listen posts! Launched BloodReads.com, a silly promo site for and upcoming Ides of March GHOST PARTY 👻🎉 show themed on BETRAYAL and also MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING. Used a template from HTML5up, which were recently discussed in #indieweb-meta as having a template that might be a good fit for the IndieWeb homepage redesign. Started work on a new section on his site dedicated to improv, so folks can find his upcoming shows, past events, etc.
- It's cold but not rainy this week! Walk fast to stay warm.
- Density (and wasted space) in web designs.
- What goes into a good homepage? Are there parts of your site that exist but you don't necessarily guide people to easily?
Rolling up and grouping noisy notifications, and choosing how to order notification details by priority.
Thanks to everyone who came out! We look forward to seeing you at our next meetup on Wednesday, March 20th at 6:30pm!
