Hack the Gap '12

  • Feb 13, 2012 · 6:00 PM

PhoneGap developer hackathon, w00t w00t!!! 

This Meetup is for folks who are actively developing on PhoneGap plugins. We'll hack on some plugins, so bring your Phones, bring your Gaps, bring your development environments, and let's geek the f out.

    I had a lot of fun last night! Pleased to meet everyone. Get in touch with me over twitter at @romyilano
    FYI > Here's the wikipedia hackathon that I won with two other people in january.

    https://github.com/judytuna/SMS-Wikipedia

    It's an SMS wikipedia app, where the user texts an entry request to a specific phone number. Then the twilio api calls them back and reads them the entry.

    I'm interested in using phonegap to make a mobile app where the user can speak the entry as a request...

    Very cool to meet up with other PhoneGap-ers (Cordovians?). More of a general PhoneGap extravaganza than specifically about plugins. It was fun and I learned A LOT from talking to people. Thanks Zach, Steve, Tim!

    Plus would anyone want to play with the Wikipedia API and then post it on github???

    I like it. The more often we can get together, share ideas/techniques and hack up some useful plugins the better.

    You guys make a strong case :) Lets do a smaller get together for this. I had a chat with Zach yesterday and he would love for us to do some events at there office. I was thinking maybe doing one big event every other month and one small event the months in between. The small one would have 30-50 people and cover an advanced topic. A PhoneGap Hack Night. Since the Jan 23 meet is a big one, I will plan one for Feb to be a small one. Small presentation followed by hacking. Thoughts?

    Agreed with Adam. I'd love to get together with others who have the new FB plugin working...

    Could we do two meetups? One for discussing how the system works now, and then another one when the new plugin system goes online. Our team (like others I'd imagine) is currently prevented from upgrading to the latest builds of Phonegap because some of the plugins we rely on do not support the new builds yet. We'd love to meet with other teams and discuss how they are getting around this - and collaborate with them on getting the old plugins up to date i.e. facebook plugin.

    Hey Guys, I love the idea. I think we should hold off a few months though. The PhoneGap team is working on PhoneGap.js which is going to change how plugins work. Also they are working on making discoverability and installation a more streamlined process. I would hate for us to do a bunch of work at this event and it go obsolete a month later. Lets keep this event up here for now. Will plan a date once things are a bit further along. Thoughts?
