Why did none of my friends tell me programming a text editor was one of the hardest things in the world?
In some respects, Reflect is another data company. This time just dealing with human io.
One of the more challenging technical onsites I had was making a text editor in < 4hrs. So many edge cases and things to consider. It was brutal.
Here's a little secret: a lot of CEOs miss doing the work.https://twitter.com/mitchellh/status/1418315344800669698 …
Ya it's no joke. For sure one of the most easily underestimated programming problems. And as a user you really feel deeply every little thing because number of interactions per minute is so damn high.
I helped build collaborative editing for Yammer back in the day. Text editors are deceptively complex.
haha I could have definitely told you that... we've been rewriting ours for like 2 years now :(
Building text editors is what I do day in day out Would love a chat even if it doesn’t lead to a project. DMs are open in case you’re interested
Honestly, this feels like a good service to use the superhuman playbook with. Keep a wait-list going for a super long time and really nail personal onboardings: walk people through setting things up in a way that works for them, give each person a dedicated CSM, etc.
