Dude, I read the whole thread and I can say that you’ve been an asshole the whole time.
Meteor hired Tatiana to do the job, she arrived at a really tough moment of the company where many people are CONTRIBUTING to deliver the Meteor 3.0 instead of being FLAMING new employees in the forum and bringing the staff to this useless discussion instead of focusing on what matters: delivering good contributions.
Well, yes. She can and may. It’s all up in the future but I’m talking about present and past which wasn’t very pleasant. Not communicating such a crucial step with contributors whom the support was immediately cut off or the community. Even the future plans and how this bounty system might look like wasn’t communicated either. I am fully qualified for the position I hold HAHA, sure thing
Do you think you own it just because you’re long-term contributors? I mean, it’s open source and the MAINTAINERS decide what they’re going to do. Besides, Meteor Software is still a company that needs PROFIT to pay its employees.
Hiring Tatiana is a medium-term investment that the team decided to make. They hired her because of his DevRel skills that are known by all the Brazilian community. You literally don’t know ANYTHING about her and you’re yelling a bunch of crap just because you’re mad that people didn’t ~text~ you to let you know.
Seeing all this thread, it’s just like you’re a xenophobic person (I hope I’m wrong about that) since you’re basically pointing out that there are only Brazilians on the team. I mean, I’m a Brazilian person and I know how to do the job. Developer Advocacy is about the product that you can learn in a few months or less. But a MANAGER, like Tatiana, has more tasks that you could ever imagine.
The company published the job test we are available to everyone. If they don’t pass this, maybe Brazilian developers who earn WAY LESS than most part of the US/EU and also deliver a good job.
We do need a good, reliable, trusted person who can advocate on behalf of the community and properly communicate the needs of all stakeholders. I’m hoping we’ll see less horn tooting and more engagement.
You have to have faith in the people running this company. For example, do you ever know how hard it is to maintain such a structure with 8 people on the core team? With no budget to invest? For God’s sake, just think for a moment and you’ll realize that Meteor is probably trying their best to make things work.
If people want your OSS rewards (aka. just do a good job on the bounty section and help finish all the tasks and release 3.0 and that’s it. Simple as that, right? Or the only thing that makes you contribute to Meteor (AFAIK about) is the sponsoring?
I see the great work of the Meteor guys from Twitter and sometimes go to GitHub to check out some issues, but I never expected the community to have a face like this: someone who yells every time someone gets hired.
Other than that, I’m here to help and learn more about Meteor so I can contribute to the project and build a better community.
You even hired a Developer Relations Manager, who started her Meteor forums account less an 90 days ago!!! WHAT THE FUCK DOES SHE KNOW ABOUT METEOR??? HOW ABOUT GIVING THAT MONEY TO PEOPLE LIKE @storyteller @jkuester @alimgafar WHO STARTED A GODDMAN PODCAST ABOUT METEOR??? WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?? I’m truly perplexed by the amount of ignorance the people making these decisions have. There’re some other problems but I’ll refrain from mentioning them here so as not to take the spotlight from the problem this thread is for.
By the way, if you talk to any member of a community I’m moderating, you’ll probably get banned. I don’t care if you’ve been contributing there for TEN YEARS, or even if you’re one of the founders. This attitude just shows that you are a childish person who doesn’t know how to start a proper conversation.
Have a good day!
