March Hackathon

Come along to the March hackathon and work on personal projects! Learn something new, or just hang out with other geeks.


Matt Cook has offered to show people around the internals of GLSL, and Bob Brown has offered to show people jQuery drag-and-drop.


Bring a laptop, bring your personal projects, and let's hack!

Cheers,

    Marcin and I will be deploying the TrackABus NZ Android app to the Play Store amongst other things. I haven't gone through that process yet so will be asking Marcin lots of questions if anyone else is interested...

    For those of you interested in jQuery and drag and drop here's what I'm planning. I want to make something as close as visually and functionally possible as a desktop environment in your web browser. Think of icons that you can drag and drop around, popup windows etc. etc. Hopefully it'll be something to springboard any ideas you might have into reality and at the least an interesting discussion point.

    For those of you planning to come along you can clone this: https://github.com/gurubobnz/jqdnd - it appears that in Chrome at least you can run it straight from your filesystem so there's no need to run it from a web server - keeps it easy. It's not a requirement - I'm hoping we can just hack along on the big screen also.

    There'll be more code coming to that repo before the night so if you're coming along do be sure to git pull before the night. There may be internet access available but best not to count on it.

    If you would like to follow along with the GLSL stuff, ensure you have Chrome (not Chromium, not Firefox) installed for mimimum pain - it has to do with the sandbox app that we'll be playing around with.

    Also your laptop gpu will need to have openGL ES2 support - head to http://get.webgl.org/ to check.

    A full battery or power source will be useful too, gpu stuff can wind down power surprisingly quickly.
