Day of Swift (Virtual Event)

It is always better to test software together. We'd like to bounce ideas with you. So, here's to a Day of Swift Beta.

SwiftRiver is a free and open source platform for helping people to make sense of large amounts of information in a short amount of time. It is a mission to democratize access to the tools used to make sense of data - discover information that is authentic, accurate and above all, relevant - by providing the following capabilities:

  • Gathering and filtering of information from a variety of channels e.g. RSS, Email, SMS, Twitter etc
  • Drawing insights from the collected information
  • Allowing people to create buckets of information using their own expectations of authority and accuracy as opposed to popularity.

 

Date: Saturday, September 8, 2012

Time: 9:00 am - 10pm UTC


This is a virtual event. We will have Swift leaders from many timezones covering the hosting.

EAT host: Emmanuel Kala

EDT hosts: David Kobia, Heather Leson

HAST host: Chris Blow

How to participate:

1. Sign up for your SwiftRiver beta account
2. Connect with us either via skype or irc: See the "Contact Us" wiki page
3. Sign on during the Day of Swift into the Swift Public Skype channel or IRC. Here is a schedule to let you connect and commit times in advance.

4. Hurray, we can then collaborate. In the real-time chats, we can test, discuss, debate, and make recommendations.

Documentation:
We'll set up an etherpad and google doc to collaborate topics. The team might even designate items to test/break as part of the day.
Issues, bugs and features will be tracked in Github.

More SwiftRiver documentation is on the wiki.

    I just added most of you as editors to the China Earthquake river. Posted several tweets with hash tag #chinaearthquake2012sep7 but after fours hours the are no drops in the river.

    Trending today: Quakes in southwest China kill dozens, damage 20,000 homes. How about setting up a River for this event?

    What format will we use for testing? We will all test our own sample deployments or is there a group test that we can all collaborate on? I plan to be testing via the SwiftRiver side as well as post test tweets directly from Twitter.

    Remind me to ask if/how the new Twitter API terms will affect SwiftRiver.
