Since I started using Sololearn, there was not a single time where I used the app and it never had speed issues.
At the beginning, I thought it was always my fault or my internet's fault. But now I've tested with a variety of different setups, and with internet with 100Mbps, and sololearn still presents connection issues, or really low speed in challenges.
Can someone explain me why this is the case? Is someone experiencing the same thing?
Don't worry, almost all of us open Sololearn everyday and then press that "Try again" button again and again 😂
The app has improved it's UI in different attempts and we've heard of bug fixes as well, but it's really expected that this network issue will be solved soon
The speed or connectivity issues have been going on for at least one and a half years now.
I think it started when they introduced PM.
We all believed for a while that it's our internet's fault - because Sololearn's sloppy error messages just *always* told us this, no matter what was really the cause.
My half-joking idea back then of what was going on:
They have now switched some of the messages to something like, 'Whoops, something went wrong', but in some situations, you'll still get YourInternetException.
In the last few months, it has been better (not perfect), they must have done something.
I Know They Are Using Microsoft Azure Servers As Main Servers For Sololearn Platform Or Maybe ASP.NET,Especially If You Opened It From PC,Sometimes They Fix Somethings In Sololearn,So Errors Appear If You Opened Website From PC And They Are Fixing The Website.
For Other Reasons:The Number Of Users in Sololearn Is Big And The Requests Between Sololearn App/Sololearn Website And User May Takes Long Time Cause He Respond To Other Users Requests!!!
Requests In Sololearn Is:
- Create/Edit/Upload/Save/Share Codes
- Compiling Code
- Courses That Offered,They Are Requested From The Server
Sorry If I Did Wrong To Sololearn Dev Team,I Just Wanted To Explain What Is
PS: I'm Not Working With Them!!!
HonFu your Sololearn exception handling code is brilliant 😁
It is nice to hear that it is at least getting better. I am not an experienced user, so I haven't been in Sololearn long enough to see the improvements. But if it was worse a few months ago, I imagine how frustrating it was.
I do enjoy the Sololearn app, don't get me wrong. It just seems to lack performance.
