RE: SteemStats.com 0.2.1 - bringing even more ways to track account activity and explore the blockchain
@jesta, you're killing it. Really great work here. It's funny because I wanted to dive into much of this as you have (I also learned about blockchain tech over 3 years ago and never directly got involved in writing code for it). Now I'm seeing the high quality work you and others are doing and I may just sit back and enjoy it. :) If you do open source any of it, I'll look forward to contributing however I can and certainly learn from it as well.
I am planning on driving this page in a direction to help educate users on how Steem Power works.
This is much needed, and I think it will be greatly appreciated.
Writing some tutorials on what I've learned and how you can build applications like I have.
Yes please. :) I've been writing content recently and really do want to dive into the coding more, so this would be greatly helpful to get me started.
Play either XCOM2 or Overwatch... haven't decided yet, but I think I need a day of gaming
Well deserved! Thanks again for building some awesome tooling for this blockchain. In a recent (somewhat negative) coindesk article, there was mention of needing to bootstrap the developer community, something most altcoins struggle with. From my perspective, the number and quality of tools being built already are amazing.
SteemPress will be open source soon enough! I plan on taking out all the phalcon components I have (since most people won't be able to install it) and adding in replacement parts that everyone can run. So you'll be more than welcome to help with that! It'll be great when someone can just drop it on their server, configure the username(s) and tag(s) to watch, and have an instant blog of content on their domain.
You're welcome :)
And I agree, it's hard to bootstrap a developer community, but steem seems to be doing it right. I've build a couple blockchain explorer and other stat tools for now defunct coins in the past and never really felt like I was a part of anything. With steemit, it's easy to feel a part of it, as long as you're contributing content, ideas or projects.
Jesta you are doing a great job for the community steemit. Thank you!
I think getting well paid for your efforts has something to do with feeling part of something as well. :)
Let's go, people. Upvotes all around for @jesta!
honestly steem is causing me to learn a ton about coding. I would also love to see what's beneath the hood. thanks @jesta.
