What do you like best?
Talking to other developers is fun, also having some conversations on a library/package, get thoughts, new ideas is very helpful, sometimes you cannot solve your problem, you get a help from gitter chat, it's very friendly product indeed, i like it in most cases, but currently im not using it at all.
What do you dislike?
Time difference, all people around the world work at different time zones, and that's a hard problem, when you are in rush and want to ask a small question and want answer, chat is AFK, nobody active, although there is a lot of users, it's like IRC chat, you are working, everyone is sleeping, and vise versa, that's indeed probably biggest issue for me, sure it cannot be solved simply, it's something like impossible to solve, but being a chat platform and behaving like a forum is not applicable for me
Recommendations to others considering the product
I like when it comes to live chatting,
but i don't like when it becomes a forum alike thing.
The time zone difference is a big problem for me, i hope this will be somehow fixed in the future. Hope there will be better way to talk to creators directly
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
well it's useful to talk to contributors of package directly rather than ask question in github issues, and theoricaly you get faster answer for your question. Or you can talk to creator of package directly, get some help, or request a feature, talk about it in live chat, it's very helpful service tho
