I'm so so pumped to finally pull the trigger on this, I couldn't be happier to get y'all lovely folks more involved 💜

We'll be around to answer any questions you've got for us, and if you're looking to contribute I'd recommend joining the new open channel: https://spectrum.chat/spectrum/open

This is AMAZING!! I can learn so much from this, now It's possible if I encounter an annoying bug, I can tackle it myself.

One question, are you relying on Github Projects internally as well? I found them pretty hard to interact with them quickly, but the automated GH issue tracking is helpful.

Only for the coarse roadmap, we stopped using them for day-to-day work

Nice work. I expect to see more community-driven projects like this follow this direction. I've thought a lot about open sourcing pieces of Product Hunt with the team, or at least exposing more of it via our API.

I'm looking for a platform to build a community soon, and because of this announcement I came to know Spectrum! I was considering Discourse.org, but now I'm seriously torn. Spectrum does seem almost perfect for the job!

This is so cool! I've been following along since listening to Bryn talk about Spectrum on Immutable. Also went digging through the source maps a few times haha. Can't wait to see where Spectrum goes from here and to be able to have it as a resource to younger devs (like myself)
