#hackUTOS March 9th, 2010
Hey everyone, it is time to #hackUTOS again!
What is #hackUTOS?UTOS has been sponsoring Open Source technologies in Utah for years now. This is a chance for all the members (and potential members) to come out meet some of the UTOS hackers including herlo, utahcon, and DexterTheDragon.
We will be hacking on ConMan, the Open Source Conference Management system used by UTOSC! This is a great chance for you to participate, learn,teach, and get credit toward attending the conference for a discounted price!
When is #hackUTOS?We will be meeting Tuesday March 9th, 2010 at 7:00PM MST.
Where is #hackUTOS?
OnlineAlong with meeting in person (details below) you can find us online in IRC. We are on the Freenode network in #utos-dev
IRLSince the meeting place worked out well last time we will be meeting again at the Salt Lake Coffee Connection.
1588 South State Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84115The Salt Lake Coffee Connection is a really great place to meet. They have a great internet connection (provided by our good friends at Xmission), awesome drinks (check out the Dirty Chai!) and good food! The prices are good, and internet access is included with all purchases.
What Language?ConMan is written in Python, using the Django framework. We run it on MySQL and SQLite databases.
Don’t know Python, or Django? Don’t worry, we are all open to helping you get started. Please realize we are here to mainly work on our project, we are happy to offer light support to get you up and running.
If you aren’t interested in working on ConMan bring your own Open Source project! We would love to have you in the house for some great co-working!
