Corona has always been about you, our fantastic developer community. And we love it when you get more involved. A community project that you may not be aware of is a new website collecting information about #madewithcorona apps. The site, curated by @sporkfin, is currently soliciting YouTube video submissions of your apps to show off.

Guest submissions

If you have a Corona related post you would like to share here on the blog we are open to your submissions. You can always email us with a link to a .zip file that we can download with your post. We like to keep it simple, so write the post using Markdown. Include any artwork in the .zip file and email us at devrel@coronalabs.com and if its appropriate and beneficial to the community we will post it here for you.

Open source

Just a friendly reminder, Corona is now open source. You can download the code that builds the simulator and you can add features and make changes that will make Corona better and submit a pull request back to us with your submission.

This sounds great. Best of luck with @sporkfin's endeavor. I'll also be sure to try my hand at writing a guest post in near the future.


I'm also quite confident as to who wrote the title of this topic. This is just a funny thing to pick up on, but there's a great difference between how people use and view ellipses.

I'm 29 and people around my age and younger tend to see ellipses at the end of a statement or dialogue as quite passive aggressive. Compare: "Great job" and "Great job...". I am just bringing this up, because I know from my parents and other older people that they tend to use ellipses as a way of ending a sentence without a hard punctuation, perhaps to take the time to think, to list something, or to continue on the same topic but from a different angle, etc.

With this particular topic's title, "Getting the community more involved…" first sounds to me like: "Come on community... just... get more involved? Sheesh." but after taking a second to think about it, I know that it is meant like "Getting the community more involved…" where the ellipses suggest how it is being already done and how it can be done further :D

Not to nitpick, this is just something I find fascinating. How people of different ages use the same things, the ellipses, but with completely different intentions. :D Receiving messages like "Thanks again for helping out..." from my parents after helping them out for a whole day always ticks me off first, then a second later it ticks me again because I understand that they wanted to end the sentence with an exclamation mark and not be passive aggressive! Same happens when I read comments on these forums, I try to think whether the person posting ellipses is being passive aggressive or just "older" :P

Well I'm a Gen-X/tail end baby boomer so you can call me "older".  To me, ellipses means there is more to come and I don't see any passive-agressive intent with it. I personally tend to overuse explanation points. Technically it's a title and shouldn't have any punctuation. 

 

FWIW, on our blog, the excerpt/summary after the headline, the template automatically adds ellipses for me. Since I typically end the sentence with a period, I find myself with "...." a lot.

Yeah, years ago when a colleague of mine and I were first learning Corona and Lua, we did refer to you in our private conversations as the "Wise Old Corona Jedi" as we kept constantly bumping into your tutorials and your Sith avatar :D
