Proposal

This is about rethink how community and information channels are organized.

This is based on forum discussion: https://forums.donejs.com/t/open-source-theory/975

Problem

Currently there are quite many small resources that people can use to get info:

YouTube
Bitovi: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_HPFLeKzJNLOUnLc_3311Q 1 (310 subscribers)
DoneJS: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEnTQUfJi0L6l7g8IRuaVkg (83 subscribers)
CanJS: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM_xC8UOHt2ay5wz-3gotmg (189 subscribers)

Gitter
https://gitter.im/canjs/canjs
https://gitter.im/stealjs/steal
https://gitter.im/donejs/donejs
https://gitter.im/bitovi/js-training
https://gitter.im/bitovi/testee
https://gitter.im/bitovi/funcunit

They are very granular. I think not all of them are used and information / community blurred across all of them.

Possible solution

What I was thinking about is, maybe it makes sense to have single YouTube channel that contains everything about "Bitovi technology stack" where you can arrange videos by different topics (series). Same way how "How it works" exists today.

Same can be done to Gitter channels.

Thanks for posting. Adding the following so folks understand the historical reasons we kept these separate:

  • We want to encourage folks outside Bitovi to contribute. We felt having everything in Bitovi might turn folks off.
  • We want people feel like they can use projects on their own. You don't have to use CanJS if you want to use steal.

There are two solutions I see:

  • Put everything under DoneJS. The problem here is that we don't want people using steal to feel like they have to use done-ssr, canjs, etc.
  • Put everything under Bitovi. The problem here is that folks might not feel like they want to contribute as much. Personally, I think putting everything under Bitovi is what we should do. Bitovi is cool (or at least should be perceived that way). It is an open source company. It's brand shouldn't really get in the way and help encourage people.
