GiftCycle tech meetup #3

Some of you know that GiftCycle was stuck a little, waiting for APIs from Scavenger.org.uk to be finalized. While that's still ongoing, the guys at Freegle have RSS feeds for many of their groups (see here: https://trello.com/card/research-ways-of-obtaining-data-from-freegle-with-special-focus-on-searching/4f8c6c81b7459bc24249cd04/31). This is not ideal, of course, but it's much better than having to scrape Yahoo Groups.

So we'll now focus on defining the scope that these RSS feeds allow us, wireframing for it, and then starting to code it (in no particular order).

Join us if you're interested in the future of the gift economy (and if you're not at work / uni during the day on Monday).

PS: if you can't make it, but are interested in the subject, do check out this meetup: http://www.meetup.com/21stCenturyNetwork/events/68136902/ .

    no worries. The tech meetups usually last till late in the evening, but this time I had that webinar (linked in the description) I need to attend. Next one will be more accessible for people working during the day. Hope to see you then.
