@mustardamus: @nodeknockout@staticshowdown Cheers! Any chance for a Vue Vengeance? :)
@daskalou I can see this feedback on your team page "Had fun using this - simple interface, clean, good design. The usable space felt a little cramped at times but it didn't detract from what it sets out to do. I would definitely use this to walk an audience through a mockup. Nice work!" feedback is left by https://twitter.com/hallstigerts
Thanks @marynaaleksandrova , I see it now too, it wasn't there before though, maybe a cache issue. I can also see one private feedback now on our /team page.
Just noticed winners are out now. Congrats to all winners, and thank you, all organizers! :D I think it’s now safe to make commits and deploy?
Congrats to all the winners! It was an extremely fun event to be involved in, looking forward to next year's!
@mbleigh There seems to be something funny going on with the judge's feedback. Sometimes it's appearing (both public and private), and sometimes it's not (usually the latter for me). Tried a private browsing session with cache turned off and the same issue exists.
Maybe it's about CDN and caching stuff. I think Divshot should improve about this. Sometimes during production CDN update, the website becomes non-functional.
For example, when asset hashing is enabled, the file name change. The index.html is served with CDN with updated content, while the CSS file is served with CDN with old content. This means it’s 404 for CSS file which renders the page without CSS styling.
(This is observed in Thailand several months ago when the company I did my intern decided to use Divshot to host the company website. I understand that ensuring that a CDN is globally-reliable is really hard.)
@dtinth Now that judging is over you're good to go now. It's safe to make commits and deploy.
@dtinth Great feedback and definitely appreciated. There's certainly room for improvement and we're doing as much as we possibly can to ensure our CDN and caching behavior is reliable. It's our #1 priority. When you encounter this problem again please email support with the specific app and release so we can take a closer look. If we can keep track of occurrences with detailed bug reports it will help us isolate the issue faster.
@fastdivision Thank you. Since I am not in that company anymore, I don’t know if the problem still happens or not. During StaticShowdown competition my app works fine when published to production. :)
@dtinth Excellent. Glad to hear. Big fan of your app, showed it off to a couple people at our Web Components meetup in Los Angeles last week. They were all blown away by your work!
@fastdivision Wow, I’m flattered. :) I think the way this app is structured can be improved. Right now, the UI and logic for each unit (synthesizer / filter) is scattered throughout the codebase.
Of course! Such is the nature of hackathon code :) Every second counts so it's gonna be messy. Time to refactor and open source some of those components ;)
Looking forward to seeing you again next year and everyone else as well -- there were a lot of impressive entries, think I'll leave some feedback of my own now
я котик пур-пур
Cool, thanks all and congrats.
I think this feedback given to us is just BS.
From our judge Irina Vovkoriz we just got "animation is good and appealing start of application". That is it? That is the most generic comment ever. I could write that about any app.
Amazing work to the winners
I didn't enter into the finalist atleast
I hope you will send some stuff for all the entries :)
