Re: [lsug] The next Scala Dojo project

similar idea,

take yahoo finance stocks data, and capture twitter feeds for those stocks, say AAPL. then raise a signal once a defined stock hits a certain threshold of comments n the twitter feeds.

that should give plenty of interesting work to do.

We're all using public transport, so...

How about a twitter app that reads in twitter streams from joe public, scans and interprets them, and tries to warn you in advance if there is disruption to your normal route home. Similar to the National Rail twitter DM system, but using crowd sourced data to make the guess. I'd suggest that there is enough variety to be able to split the work up into different teams, but it's not too huge a task overall that you couldn't code a crude version on your own in a day in your (well known) language of choice.

This'll be Lifty, can be broken into smaller modules for teams to work on, and useful at the end of it.

Hi guys and gals.
At the last Scala Dojo I was asked if we should do a bigger project at
the Scala Dojos - spanning at least couple of meetings if not couple
of months.
Old timers remember the was Minesweeper dragged for months, but with
the new formula we could probably make a big project work.
One approach would be for to make the project modular and each of the
teams would work on one of the modules. To keep the teams focussed, we
would start by writing integration tests ensuring proper interaction /
APIs of the modules, maybe even set up a continuous integration build
running somewhere. This way we would also ensure that the code is
frequently commited to the repo.
So tell me, what would you like to work on? Some kind of algorithmic
challenge, a webapp maybe (this way we could also learn Lift) or
something else?

      Cheers
      Pawe?
