Awesome! Excited to see this Padrino version of rubycommiters. Thanks for doing this!


I like it except for the weird jittering shadows behind the people.


This is my favorite.


+1 congrats! Awesome!


Great balance between design and simplicity.


I like this one a lot; it's clear with lots of breathing room, font size is good, works great on low and high resolutions and stresses both team effort and Matz as apex contributor. Not really sure about the parralax effect, the idea is great but implementation a bit jittery, so that might need tweaking. over all very well done!


It looks so good!
My thumbs up goes for this design :)


The thing that concerns me about this design is that it's designed for a lot of data that doesn't actually exist. Consider that a large majority of the contributors don't even have a headshot; how can we expect them to have a 30-50 word bio? Does the ruby committers site really need it's own 30 word intro block?

These are the major elements of this design, however, there is no content to be filled there, and it without it the design is anemic and stark.


+1! I really the design and the lightweight nature of it. Thanks Fred!


Thanks for the great feedback everyone! :-)

Indeed the parallax effect is a bit jittery, I hadn't had too much time tweaking it, but I will, or otherwise I'd just remove the effect entirely if it cannot be tweaked to a satisfactory outcome.

@nicinabox: I consulted with Aaron Patterson during the early drafting stage and he said he would get the bios sorted. Besides, I am sure a great community like Ruby's, we wouldn't have any trouble coming up with a few sentences for each committer. The reason behind having bio, is to make the minisite more useful. I know when I read the rails core page, I find the little blurb for each core member a delight to read. :)
