I'm fluent in RoR. Should I learn a new stack?

If your goal is learning, it's totally great to learn new thing. Otherwise, I'd just learn whatever is enough.

I need an advice

In my opinion you don't need to delete the post. Stay with it. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Competition is inevitable, so is the bad ethics. The best way to encounter those acts is to be who you are. Don't get provoked. Elegantly show your value proposition and let the market judge whether or not what you sell is valuable to them.

And those that asked you a bunch of questions actually helped the exposure of values that you proposed. A good marketing I guess? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Go go go Anna! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Thanks for the answer! I was pretty discouraged after that incident, never thought that things like this happen. But you're right it's better than worse.

Rock climber. Bitcoiner. Maker.

It's actually quite good that that happened! It means your competition is pretty sketchy, and we are well set now in the age of radical transparency!

This is great news for you. Double-down on being transparent and forth-coming and let the sketchy competition take care of themselves.

Feedback on my landing page

Hello Anna ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

I'm pretty sure that it's for finding online communities. Be it on Slack or Telegram. As what you've shown through the image on the right. Good job on that! ๐Ÿ˜Š

However, I'm not sure who's it for. My impression is, "ah, it's for everyone." And if that's the case, I think that's okay too. Unless you've prepared a specific audience in mind.

Hope that helps! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Got it man.. ๐Ÿ˜€

The landing page needs more love indeed.

Regarding your last question โ€“ Not yet. It only supports EN at the moment. I'll see if it's something that people really want before building it further.

Thanks Hagai! ๐Ÿ™

Hey Hagai! Thanks for your 2 cents. ๐Ÿ˜€

About the flow of payment and free trial, what do you mean by "additional explanation"? What should I add more to get them more invested?

Regarding FAQ โ€“ I can't agree more with you. It needs to be changed soon.

And could you please elaborate more on "won't be able to use it in Hebrew?" I'm not sure I understand it clearly.

However, appreciate your roast here. That's invaluable. ๐Ÿ™

Sure, np :) I think (without doing it by myself) that because it's a LP that is very 'lean' in terms of content and depth, and you're not a well known company, 'giving' you my money so fast it's quite intemidating, for me at least. I would like to know you a bit better first. You do give a free trial, but still, something there is not the way I would expect it to be as a user.

You can A\B test if additional page that gives users more information before they pay, or providing them with a known environment of 'paying' pages could help you with conversions.

Also you can perhaps connect it with the free trial and only when it's over ask for paymet or something similar.

Hebrew - 50% of my emails for example would be written in Hebrew, your solution won't help me there no? can I type 'ืžื›ื•ื ื™ืช' which is Car in HB and get a car Emojy?
Can I search for Emojys in other languages other than EN?

What does your workspace look like today?
Maker of things

Genuinely curious here. Why so many monitors man? ๐Ÿ˜€

because 5 eyes :)

I like it, and I think it's pretty productive for development with a big asterisk. The asterisk is that 90% of my day I'm only using two monitors and my laptop screen.

Three years ago, I knew I wanted dual monitors (two on the left), so I ordered two at the same time to have the same brightness, resolution, and other settings.

I run my IDE full screen with a few columns to see my code side-by-side. I normally split-screen another monitor to see what I'm working on and have docs up at the same time. I usually use a live-reload tool so I can see my changes without every leaving my IDE so I can glance over to view it. On my laptop screen, I run iTerm 2 full-screen.

The monitor on the far right was my previous "big" monitor that I have had for 10+ years, which I mostly use as an entertainment screen. It still works well, and I run an HDMI switch off of it. I have an Intel Skull NUC running Linux, Apple TV (works great as a fourth screen or to cast from my iPhone or iPad), a Nintendo Switch, and it's useful for random stuff.

My two-year-old son uses my iPad Pro (far left), but I was charging it on my desk, so I left it in there.

Pro-tip: Find what works for you. Some people do better with one big screen with multiple desktops. I find desktop switching to be distracting, so I mostly avoid it. I like seeing everything spread out and in their place. Follow your Arrow, though. There is no one size fits all answer for everyone as long as you can limit your distractions.
