Back to Hack

It's time for the next West London Hack Night. Any language, any level, any idea. All you need is your trusty editor and a mind to code.

We'll be meeting at the Crown & Anchor (who have just repainted, especially for us*) for another fine night of polyglot hacking, drinks & socialising. The schedule is:

6pm onwards - Arrive, chat, order chips.
7pm - Kickoff. Vote for hacks, form teams.
7:15pm - Hack!
8:45pm - Show & tell.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Kris

* Okay, probably not *just* for us.

      Another test case: "+++ >> ,[>,] <[<] <- [ >> [.>] <[.<] <-]" and "a1b2c3" as user input gives "a1b2c33c2b1aa1b2c3­3c2b1a" as output (i.e. input, then reversed, then repeated as many times (minus 1) as there are "+" at the front.

    I took an hour out after work just now to rework the C# version so it actually works... with the added goal of trying to use as little code as possible. Here's the result!

      Does "+[+[--]++]," work..? (Hm, now I have to work out what it should do...)

    I spent some time during work (hope my boss don't read here) and wrote a PHP version - https://github.com/denchev/brainfuck-php. I did my best to find more tests :)

    Well, I guess I have to put the Ruby team's code up.

    Here it is: https://github.com/dpdawson/ruby-brainfuck

    Great to see you all last night. I think we've done society a favour, putting all these new BrainF Virtual Machines into the world. ;-)

    Here's the Clojure team's code: https://github.com/funkotron/brainfuck

    I really enjoyed this one, was good to try out some ruby. Even if I did spend most of the bus journey home trying to work out how you would do basic arithmatic in brainf**k...

    Is Kris doing a shorter 90 mins each time, to put the pressure on?

    • Peter J.

      Heh, certainly felt like time evaporated! Cheers to Kris for organising, too.

      Cheers Pete - good to cut some C# at speed... I hope the cat's okay, too!

      I shall be curious to see your Chromebook Peter - not sure how I'd cope without Vim or Emacs. :-)

  • Peter J.

    So, seven more days to pass...

    I'll be bringing the family Acer ChromeBook along for its first outing. Anyone have any recommended preparations?

    Can't make it to the next Hack. Plans have changed. Have fun!

    For the future hardware hack, I have an Occulus Rift if that is of interest to anyone?

    August 2, 2013

    • Kris J.

      It is to me. I'd love to try one out. :-D
