    Going over the last bit of Slack Review Team's feedback as well as allowing notification settings to be set per remote git provider account.

    TODAY

    While waiting, continuing to add polish to notification, account and settings area.

    Kudos: All y'all shipping and hacking

    1. 1

      How rough has the Slack review been?

      1. 1

        It hasn’t been too bad. Honestly, there is a lot to writing a slack app, between different choices, their implementations and their permission implications. Overall, the responses have been very guiding and I should be approved very shortly.

    April Epic:

    • Get 5 new creators to join

    Yesterday/This Weekend

    • I fixed up the landing page of the site making it more clear to users (I hope)

    • Improved my Lighthouse SEO score, but tanked my performance score. (Due to adding of youtube videos...so I have to think about that)

    • Found bugs in Prisma's Admin UI (its a great service, but buggy ugh)

    Today:

    • I start reaching out to creators to get those signups

    • Going to work on building out a small team. I'm looking for sales development, marketing and customer success person. (going to reach out to SJSU and see if I can find students looking to boost their resume with a startup gig)

    Kudos:

    @aliakhtar for pointing out flaws in my landing page

      Interesting! Why do you think the YouTube videos tanked performance? Auto play?

        Video is one of the most data intensive things
