Inserting a message from Josh Adams promoting Hacktember. We're trying to expand the scope of the event to include things outside of the purely software-based work, so I'm cross-posting here. Consume at your leisure.
Here is Josh's email:
So we're presently doing the BOSS meetup and wanted to get together a Call For Proposals message to try to get some project ideas for Hacktember.
As a quick recap: Hacktember will be a month-long hackfest of sorts, and we'll get together at the BOSS meetup for September to show off what projects we built that month.
Having gotten that out of the way, we wanted to start an email thread in which people could suggest projects they might want to be involved in or lead. Then next month's meeting we will form some teams to work on those projects.
Some random project ideas - no one has proposed these, just wanted to get the juices flowing:
- Build a project using TCP in the browser (new Chrome feature)
- Build a game for Chromecast using android/chrome/ios controllers
- Browser-based instrument or vocal effect (echo using websockets!)
- Something using leap motion?
- An android app to control a microcontroller?
Anyway, if you have ideas, please submit them and then we will pick projects and teams next meeting. If you aren't there physically and you want to be involved, you'll need to join the hangout we set up. If you know anyone else in town that wants to be involved in the hack month, please pass this message along.
