    I apologize that I wasn't available to help with the beta yesterday. If you are still looking for additional beta testers, let me know!

    Thank you @G7470 its a week-long beta, so testers are still welcomed. Please send an email to the link above and I will add you right away.

    Ok, sounds good. I'll be emailing you shortly

    Hey! I signed up for the beta and have been taking a look at it. How is the beta going?

    @cerver1
    Thanks again for being willing and able Adam
    The beta is going well, no crashes across multiple unique devices and great feed back all around.

    @G7470
    Of course, happy to help!
    That's great to hear that it is going well. I'll be looking more thoroughly at it later on tonight, so you should have some feedback from me within the next day or two

    Things like the google photos image selection was something I didn't account for, so getting a response relating to that has me excited once I'm back in development mode next week.
    How about you? how has your week been?
    G7470
    @G7470
    Ahhh, nice! That's good that you are getting valuable feedback :)
    My week has been pretty decent. I've been back in the office at work the last couple of days. It is definitely different

    @cerver1
    Different? how so?

    Well, when I go in now, I have to use hand sanitizer 3 different times when I go in, and when I get there, I have to shut my door and keep it closed all day

    @cerver1
    hmm, at least there are some precautionary measures in place.
    If you don't mind me asking which field are you in?
    G7470
    @G7470
    I work in IT. I'm a software developer

    @cerver1
    Oh nice, what's your tech stack?
    G7470
    @G7470
    There is a .NET C# stack and there is a Java stack

    oh very cool, I'm in the middle of translating Unit testing written in Java to Kotlin.

    I have to ask because I simply dont know. Is this merely a social function to meet other professionials or is this an actual development collaboration
    ?
    G7470
    @G7470
    This has been a social function to meet programmers from all levels and strengths. We encourage collaboration with our members as well :)

    Well, I will give some background on myself and my reasons for joining this meetup. I am a graphic designer that was terrified of code until I lost a front end developer in the middle of a project and had to take on the remainder of their duties myself. While I was just coding in HTML and CSS and copy pasting JS :). It ended up being not nearly as scary as I thought. 1 year later I am pretty well versed in the visual languages of HTML and CSS, I am one month into learning PHP and will start JAVA once I am done with PHP. I will pursue my first front end position once I round up my JAVA learning. I am adept at building basic sites with next to zero dynamic functionality
    If anyone has a need for web graphics/ui design please let me know, I would love to collaborate.
    G7470
    @G7470
    That's awesome! It's interesting how things like that end up showing you that it isn't all that scary :) Keep up the good work though, it's awesome to be so well-versed in both parts of website development (design and code)! I'm awful with design, lol
    I'll certainly keep that in mind with collaboration. I have a personal project of mine that I've been working on, in which my lack of design skills are clearly showing. I'm going to poke at it for a bit more, but I'll let you know!

    Thanks, I am also working on a personal project that will be added to my portfolio. Its a horror anthology site titled "A Walk At Night" I will commit it to github in the next couple of months. At the moment I am struggling with building a custom modal window layout for the panels of the stories.

    @G7470
    That sounds really cool! I'm interested to see what it's all about!

    I don't know what everyone elses coding experience is, but has anyone had to deal with chrome no longer supporting autoplay audio? Im searching for viable workarounds as there is atmospheric music that adds to the user experience of my site. Chrome threw a wrench in that aspect of the site with their new rules.
    G7470
    @G7470
    I haven't personally. I haven't messed with that aspect of it yet, but I was planning to. If you do find a workaround for it, let me know

    Hey all! I hope everyone has bared the storm that came through today. Personally got a little water in my basement but otherwise not bad. What is everyone up to tonight?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    If it's anything like chrome mobile, audio will not play until a user interacts with the page in some way.
    I made a website with a timer. I couldn't just set the audio off when the timer ended. But, I could attach the sound to the start timer button and immediately "pause" the sound and resume it when needed.
    So when the user clicked the button to start the timer, it also technically started the audio file.
    that was a few years ago tho
    Eugene Irwin
    @YoungSimba85
    @Lilyheart
    Lily coming through with the assist! It was a design choice to leave off audio controls. I felt it takes away from the immersiveness of the design. Now that it seems to be a necessity I will have to find a creative solution. Thanks for the help!
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Many visitors to a site will leave if there are no audio controls. As a general design rule, auto playing music is frowned upon regardless of immersion.
    There are many reasons for this. Accessibility, performance (not everyone has high speed), cost (not everyone has free internet or has data caps), and annoyance to name a few.
