As the number of posts grow, we need to be able to search ( may be a fuzzy search ) by timezone and technology.

At the moment available sessions are shown with a time block.


This time block doesn't say what the timezone is. This is confused by showing the timezone for a user. Is the time in my local time, or the pair's local time?


Clearing this up would be better UX

I have completed the signup. I'd like to offer help by pairing. How do I do that? How can I find people who need help now? How can I enter the times when I am available in principle?

The current timezone-selector interface is a bit clunky and broken. The GMT-offsets (technically UTC-offsets since GMT 00:00 is noon and midnight) are listed as the offset-as-of-january-1; since many timezones are currently observing DST, these offsets don't reflect the actual offsets currently, and since DST transitions are not consistent from timezone-to-timezone, they can't be reliably used by users in different regions to agree on a time for pairing.


A much more straight-forward and lossless interface would be to allow users to pick from the list of "#{contintent}/#{example_city}" list (plus the Etc/UTC entry), which are timezones that include DST transitions where necessary; these timezones can then be used to output any timestamp in its currently-active UTC-offset and are unambiguous without assuming context (e.g., Central Time – Central US? Central Australia? Central Europe?).

It would be great if it would be possible to be notified (via e-mail) when a session is available in the next X days for either:

  • technology X (text comparison based)
  • user X
It would save us time for manually checking.

Maybe at some point having "free text" for the technologies will prevent some features from being implemented (matching, searching, etc.)

I propose that the site has clear, unambiguous, pre-defined "tags" (ala StackOverflow) to choose from.

Users should be able to suggest or create new tags. But right now it really does not help to have "Rails", "RoR", "RubyOnRails", etc.

In the same spirit of Google+, it would be cool to be able to "follow" a user and be notified of sessions he/she opens, activities, etc.

The same way, and to be fair, it should be possible for me to "block" another user, if I don't want to have anything to do with him/her.
