Webdev/Beer And Tell/2016/April

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Once a month web developers across the Mozilla community get together (in person and virtually) to share what side projects or cool stuff we've been working on. Generally this means things that aren't a direct work project; those can go in the monthly Webdev Meetings.

A blog post summarizing this meeting is available: https://blog.mozilla.org/webdev/2016/04/21/beer-and-tell-april-2016/



The limit is 5 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. Time limits are flexible depending on the amount of stuff being presented.

If you are presenting, make sure to connect via Vidyo (or using the public join link above)!

Emma Humphries Memory Landscapes https://emceeaich.github.io/memory-landscapes/, and http://laurietobyedison.com/body-impolitic-blog/2016/02/memory-landscapes-going-to-brooklyn/ (note, Laurie and Debbie discuss mature subjects on their blog) I'm helping Laurie Toby Edison with a visual memoir of her life and career as a photographer and artist, and want to talk about throwing non-linearity into that.

Les Orchard DIY keyboard prototype https://www.flickr.com/photos/deusx/26131747026/in/datetaken-public/ I've decided I'm going to make a computer keyboard by end of summer. This is my first prototype, designed using web-based tools
Les Orchard Jupyter Notebooks in Space https://github.com/lmorchard/eve-market-fun/tree/new-start Started playing EVE Online again, and decided this was a good excuse to teach myself how to use Jupyter (nee iPython) Notebook. I've also been building a node.js-based service to ingest and predigest various bits of API data I'm using in the notebook. Space Rock by Shorts (not entirely terrible for a gluten-free beer that I bought because I liked the label)
Pomax A React "circle tree" visualizer https://github.com/pomax/react-circletree There was an idea floating around for a circular navigation map for https://teach.mozilla.org/web-literacy that was so much fun to think about I worked on a weekend so that no one could say we were wasting time implementing it. Some form of tea.
Pomax HTML5 Mahjong https://github.com/pomax/mahjong, http://therealpomax.com/test (alpha testing: be four players!) I've been trying to implement a decent, networked version of this on and off for the last ten years, and Node.js with socket.io, paired with React and Webpack, finally let me write one that is actually not a pain. In about a week. Modern web ftw. Presumably, still tea.
groovecoder & John Dungan codesy https://codesy-stage.herokuapp.com/ An open-source startup idea I've been nursing along for 5+ years and may actually be able to finally launch in June. every day, millions of us coders work around bugs in open-source software. codesy is a pay-what-you-want market for the open source community where we can tip each other to fix important bugs.
