International webOS Meetup Enyo Hackathon

We are proud to announce our first NYC webOS Meetup hackathon! The focus of our first hackathon will be app development using the newly open-sourced Enyo Javascript Framework. Enyo is a HP developed open-sourced, cross platform(iOS, Android, Blackberry, etc) javascript app framework - all mobile app developers invited. The event takes place on March 4th and is being hosted at the Pivotal Labs New York City Headquarters from 12pm - 6pm. HP is flying Ben Combee in especially for the event to have an Enyo Expert on site.

Meeting Place : Pivotal Labs HQ841 Broadway, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10003

Directions: Located just south of Union Square in Manhattan.
Nearby subway stop is 14th Street - Union Square for the L, N, Q, R, 4, 5, and 6 lines. 

Time: 12:00pm - 6:00pm ( Ben Combee's Presentation starting promptly at 12:15pm)

Subject Matter:

  • App Development with the newly open-sourced Enyo Framework

  • Ben Combee is a senior member of the HP webOS engineering team, with a focus on frameworks, API design, and developer issues.  He has spoken at JSConf, SXSW, Game Developers Conference, and many webOS events.  He lives in Austin, TX with  his wife and two cats.  On Twitter, he’s @unwiredben.
  • SWAG!

Cost: We are charging $7 to attend the Hackathon which will be spent solely on the event refreshments, food, and prizes. We also feel that an event of this magnitude and planning requires more of a commitment from potential attendees. SPACE IS LIMITED and we need to ensure only serious RSVPs ONLY. Ability to RSVP will close at 12pm on Saturday, March 3rd. 

Please RSVP: SPACE IS LIMITED. Feel free to contact us @NYCwebOSdev if you have questions.

Tentative Plan/Schedule: 
12:15 PM Presentation by Ben Combee, followed by rules & guidelines for the hackathon being announced by Ben Stern, aka @webOSdealer.

Several goals:

1. Introduce the Enyo JS framework to a new developer base. 
2. Create multiple new webOS apps. 
3. Attract new members to our existing meetup teams. 
4. Teach attending hackers how to take an API & manipulate the data into an app. 
5. Gain more visibility into Enyo JS.


What is Pivotal Labs?

Pivotal Labs – As the customer, you play the key role in the development process. Your involvement with the team shapes what gets done, when. You determine the backlog of features to be developed, and you determine their relative priority. You make those decisions informed by the relative cost of the features in your backlog, since you can see at any moment what the relative cost of those features is, in terms of points. Pivotal Tracker lets you rearrange stories to your heart's content, and always keeps you informed of the impact your choices make on the schedule, and by extension, on cost. One thing you may be surprised by is how our development teams respond to changes in priorities. They respond by doing whatever it is you asked them to do, in whatever order you choose. They are confident that they've exposed the cost to you, and they trust you to make informed choices about what the highest priority is. For many of our customers, this is a revelatory experience. For us, it's just the sign of a healthy relationship between the development and product teams.


Looking forward to seeing you there,

- The NYC webOS Developers Team

    Will we be developing our own projects or will a topic be assigned?

    Hi! I'd like to convert my entry for NYCBigApps over to Enyo if anyone is looking for something to work on - its rather straight forward - essentially a top level domain for routing street addresses as web addresses called Streetnet. Check the video here:

    Hey folks - are you a designer or fast hacker? Please join me tomorrow (hacker, product development) in creating an app that makes you an audio biography of your life: Medley of Me (after Museum of Me).

    Not really. I am sure participants will be breaking up into teams according to skill set. If you have ideas and can work well with a team, I am sure you can be a valuable asset to any team

    This definitely sounds interesting, but am I correct in assuming that hackathon participants would need to bring their own computers to develop on?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
