Hey Bubblers - I hope everyone’s having as much fun as I am in here. Just a quick one for some of the more advanced folks on the thread.
I’m a startup founder who has a working app built in a functional stack (Haskell/Clojure), but I believe visual programming (and Bubble in particular) has real potential to be part of the path forward to an explosion of innovation as more people learn to build. We’re getting to a stage where we’re hoping to put a Bubble-based replacement in front of our existing client (c $50m in annual revenue) as a viable alternative product, but we’ll struggle to get this through if we can’t reduce the lag in page load times. The following link has a video of what I’m referring to: the first load is our existing web app and the second is our Bubble replacement, which looks great but takes quite a while to render.
I’m sure there are a LOT of ways I can improve this app and I’d welcome some guidance from some of the more experienced people here regarding whether I’ve run into (i) the outer limits of my own experience / skill in structuring this, (ii) a temporary issue with system speed due to the impressive user growth the Bubble platform has seen this year, (iii) something else entirely or (iv) a combination of all three.
Don’t get me wrong…still a huge fan of Bubble (after all, where can you build a band new web app in 10 minutes that allows you to sidestep the fact that movies can’t be loaded into this forum), just trying to figure out how we push things forward so people like me who I’d call mid-range in our experience can learn advanced Bubble issues like which structures will render more slowly and which will render more quickly. Maybe an opportunity for some coaching and/or a webinar series on advance Bubble issues? Who knows.
Also, if there are other people who want the full version (including uploader) of the app above to show issues they’re having just respond inline here. I’m happy to build and post a public version (with uploader and Issue page unique to each user) and pay the hosting costs on the videos if it’s helpful to the group.
