We’ve just pushed the update where we can now add Core Team members and Stewards for language and framework portals
If you are a Core Team member of any language or framework that we have a portal for, please let us know and we’ll add you.
If you are relatively active in a language or framework and would like to be a portal steward for any language or framework we have a portal for - just let us know!
Here’s an example of some who have been added so far:
While speaking of portals, here’s what we have so far:
Diversity - Community Portal
Linux Distros (NEW!)
Membrane Framework - Multimedia Framework
Lisp Flavoured Erlang
Cucumber - Testing Framework/Tool
Security - Topic
Rubinius - Virtual Machine
Ruby on Rails
If there are any you’d like us to add next please let us know!
We now have a decent amount of news sources that covers:
The best community news - posted by you, from sources such as Hacker News, Lobsters, and prominent tech blogs such as Tech Republic, Opensource.com, BBC Tech News, Ars Technica etc
Important Official News - from languages and frameworks when they use Github Releases or have official blogs with RSS feeds.
We’re also going to be putting together a news team, where team members will help keep an eye on our news items - ensuring only the best quality news gets through and items are correctly tagged and categorised. If you’d like to be a part of this team, please let us know!
We now also tweet a link to all publicly visible threads on to Twitter, and, if a portal exists relating to a thread, we add that portals twitter hashtag to the tweet (such as #ElixirLang
We’ve also updated our Welcome Message which shows as the banner message (until it is dismissed) - hopefully it reflects the direction we’re going in. If this shows again for you, simply click on the X to dismiss it.
We only launched 3 months and 20 days and have already served over 1,000,000 pages! This is much higher than anticipated - we were expecting the same as the Elixir Forum, which as many of you will know served just over a million pages in its entire first year!
Overall, in a short space of time we’re really excited to see that Devtalk has become a useful resource where you get the best of everything: highly rated news from devs across the web, official language and framework news, as well as news and discussions started by you, our members
Thank you to all of you have been forging Devtalk’s path - we can’t wait to see where we go from here!!
