    Hmmmm.... Things have really changed then. I suppose that makes sense since forums are more of an old-school thing.

    Lately I've spent all of my forum time with Mybb. I think many of their developers still tend to be quite young. I believe back when I started up using forums phpbb and several others (not the paid vb and IPB) were developed mostly by people 18-20. Maybe things have just aged more than I thought. Or maybe people appear younger to me online than they actually are in real life.


  • It's kinda like when you graduate from college, then a few years go by and you're like "We're not old...are we???". Then a few more years go by and everyone who was 18-20 in your head is suddenly mid 30s. Mybb does seem a little bit more "hip".


  • I'm from Ireland, I'm in High school at the moment I will be studying computer science this September at Uni. From a young age I have been running different communities on the web, some more successful than others. I have always had a passion for marketing and design, but decided that I want to study computer science because I always have ideas for new projects but I can't do much with my html skills 🙂

    I have been learning php on codeacademy (to get familiar). If anyone recommends any php books let me know

    K peace out bye 😛

    I'm Brian. I guess compared to most of you guys I'm a bit of a lurker 😄

    I've just relocated to San Francisco from San Diego working as a developer for an enterprise community software company called Lithium. Kinda followed my girlfriend up here but I have family and friends up here too that I'm reconnecting with.

    I've been in California my whole life but after graduating in '12 from UCSD (comp sci) I went travelling in Europe and Asia. I used to go to Mexico a few times a year in San Diego and I've even been to Canada! I went to Victoria though so not much experience in Canada... Yet. 🙂

    I love making music and if it paid more that's what I would actually be doing, but a close second is programming and webby stuff. I've been online since around 96 when I was in middle school, putting up pages in angelfire and geocities, using cutting edge technologies like frames! I even started dabbling a little in JavaScript to make a fancy navigation bar. Little did I know how big this language was going to be...

    I stopped doing that for a while though to meander off into studying music and biotech in community college, where I earned a degree in biotechnology production and a certification to be a bio technician, which I abandoned right after earning it :D. It did come to my aid, because that degree got me a job at Diageo in wine country for their wines division which was awesome. I started building computerized systems for them (as a technician, which was waaaay outside my job description), so I knew I should study computer science.

    So yeah now I'm just getting settled (back) into the Bay Area, which is completely different from when I left... In a good way 🙂

    @Carl just in my own humble opinion, you can get away with not learning PHP. It's a bit of a broken language, and an older technology. You should take a look at things like NodeJS, ruby, JavaScript, .Net etc, for web stuff. Languages like Java, C/C++, Python, and the like will only make you way better; learning the different languages and their paradigms will be super beneficial in all your other coding endeavors!

    @BDHarrington7 You work for Lithium? Say hello to Blair for me 😎


  • This is my first time on this forum and boy, am I happy to find this.

    I have been hunting for the best forum engine for over a month. It has almost become an addiction. I decided to go with Vanilla a week ago but soon found out that the best of Vanilla is for their hosted service which is not cheap. I have used vBulletin & IPB and as a result grown tired of conventional forum software. This is actually the first time that I would be truly wowed. This is amazing, guys! Keep up the great work!

    Thanks @cytrax -- the best of NodeBB is all free, and we don't envision that changing soon. Host it yourself, or pay us to host it, either way 🙂

    Very interresting about open source projects and also participating in some.

    And very interrested about NodeBB and writting plugins for expand the community and the powerfull tools of this opensource project.


  • @julian If I don't convince at least one person to sign up for your hosting in the next year, I'll consider that a failure on my part. Gotta do anything possible to make NodeBB your full time jobs!

    @Julian I have to ask, how do you know Blair? I see he's working out of the Ontario office so there's a small chance I'll actually meet him, haha


  • @julian Oh no! The pleasure is completely mine. I've just noticed that you guys are mostly out of Toronto? I'm from Mississauga. It is awesome to see great things coming out of Tdot. 🙂
