My bigger takeaway from this discussion is this:
The "multi-platform native apps" model is evolving fast. We'll likely see many twists and turns in the roadmap for all technologies involved and that is normal
Using or dog-fooding technology in a non-trivial (complex & large-scale) app is key. It continues to be the proof-point for validating the health and viability of any technology
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
