@goofernator1 Hi Ted! Thanks for the idea, it'll do this one day. Now we're fighting with unexpected popularity :D

I worked for the .TUBE gTLD for over a year and this is really one of the best examples I've seen of how to use the .TUBE extension. Really well executed and nice use of Algolia too. Small suggestion... if you had "human readable" URLs there'd be a little bit of an SEO benefit for you. BEFORE https://dev.tube/video/e-5obm1G_FY AFTER https://dev.tube/video/anjana-vakil-functional-programming-javascript If anyone else has ideas for .TUBE sites, you can get them going quickly and easily on WordPress with the .TUBE theme and video curator plugin... https://www.wptools.tube/

@muhamed_zhaksylik Favicons coming soon today. Russian languages won't be added near soon, but Russian videos can be contributed: https://github.com/watch-devtube/contrib

Cool idea โ€” can't imagine how long that logo will persist though... waiting for YouTube's lawyers to send a C&D! ๐Ÿ˜‚

@chrismessina My friend lawyer said we are not violating anything (different colors, different name, the font is open โ€“ Roboto). But I am ready to sell my old Volvo 40 to cover legal expenses :D

I liked idea and very useful.

I like this and could see myself spending lunch just watching a different talk each day! Another feature request -- the option to sort/filter by date recorded. Newer videos with more relevant technology is what should be shown first, I believe.

@rahrang just added date filtering. Thanks for raising this!

Frank Meeuwsen
What a great resource and great idea. I see the code is up on Github. How do you feel about reusing this for other curated projects like music, hobby or otherwise?

@frankmeeuwsen Hi Frank. Indeed, this is something to think about.

@frankmeeuwsen it is good

At first glance the ALL CAPITAL fonts make the interface feel very loaded and hard to read. Like the idea, will scout later to see which content fits me. Great project!

@iamredlus fixed, bro!

This looks awesome! I like the domain, and you've got a ton of great content already. The one thing I would love to see would be the ability to comment on videos. If you want to avoid using a backend, you could probably use Disqus to set that up, but if you wanted to get really interesting, it could be awesome to be able to comment at certain times on the video so that the comment would show up at the time and I could feel like I was getting live commentary from other users throughout the video. Either way, awesome project. I just shared it with my whole engineering team.

@eduardsi That was a lot faster than I expected. Great work!

There so much space for this app to grow. Developers usually do not have time to browse through the Internet for some simple tip, and on this app they can find it as fast as they would like..
