Addressing Component Duplication and Performance Concerns in Software Development Environment
This meeting mostly revolved around "State Changers" discussing the development and maintenance of an application. The main problem they were addressing was the situation of code crashing due to heavy components and their frequent reuse in different parts of the application, leading to a complicated user interface. In turn, this increased the chances of performance and maintenance issues.
Key platforms or components mentioned during the meeting included "WeWeb", "Xano", and "Vue". These were part of the application development process and were discussed in relation to issues of efficiency in loading components, and editor responsiveness, which has been lagging and causing issues.
The main solutions proposed were two-fold. First, the meeting attendees considered whether they should wait for the new features that WeWeb and Xano claim to be introducing, which could potentially resolve the issues they're facing. Second, they contemplated building something outside of WeWeb, essentially owning more code as a result, but also freeing themselves of the slow no-code control plane inside of WeWeb.
The meeting also touched on technical aspects such as the balance between developer experience (DX) and user experience (UX). In terms of hardware and software optimization, they explored the potential use of different browsers and the possibility of upgrading hardware to improve the development process. Towards the end of the meeting, they focused on troubleshooting performance issues, including examining how much memory their computers were using and looking into alternative ways to not run out of memory.
Overall, the meeting provided a deep understanding of the development trials experienced by the "State Changers" while attempting to improve their application. It also suggested how they might overcome such issues.
