Slogging (Slack Blogging)

Your Slack? Insightful words by highly intelligent people. Your tech blog? Not so much. Write together. #SloggingBeta

This Slogging thread by Ellen, Richard Kubina, Linh, Guy, Jeferson Borba, and Marcos Fabian occurred in HackerNoon's official #product channel, and has been edited for readability.

Here at HackerNoon, we have different departments.

Incredible and eccentric people are present throughout the various teams, but department roles differ.

As previously announced in our product updates blog account, the marketing department is eager to regularly honour the work of our developers.

This 'honours program' helps to keep everyone in the loop on the many cool things we're designing.

As such, a discussion about the process was in order. Such a discussion usually requires a meeting.

Below is a glimpse of how creative people try and schedule a meeting.

Ellen, the Marketing Campaign Lead makes an attempt to invite herself to a product meeting and is promptly met with suspicion (rightfully so). [Clearly marked satire.]

Sorry, I am going to be resting today, I feel really tired with a sore throat. Slept in by a couple of hours already, kinda weird for me.

I've been working on the Algolia instant search page and next.js v12 cache changes mostly.

Looks like we will have to do async since David and I are stuck in traffic back from the immigration office and won't be back until 10.30, unless people want to meet half an hour later?

If not, let's post our weekly update here: @Jeferson Borba @Marcos Fabian @Guy @andemosa @Kaushal Joshi @Beni @Storm

Omg is everyone afraid I will sing, I won't sing.

EllenFeb 17, 2022, 4:46 PM

I'll just record the tutorial, it's not that complicated. Or half hour is good too.

Marcos FabianFeb 17, 2022, 7:05 PM

Dammmmn sorry guys.

The meeting was back on track in a jiffy and an exciting announcement was made. Stay tuned for that.

The meeting raged on for a solid 2+ hours, with lots of notable information being discussed for the bettering of the platform and processes.
