OpenHack - July 1.0

CoworkBuffalo 225 Delaware Ave Buffalo NY 14202 (map)

OpenHack is a meetup with a simple purpose: Code together, on anything.

  • You can hack on anything! Any language, framework, public/open-source, personal, etc.
  • You don’t have to have an idea to hack on! You’re more than welcome to come just to pair with someone.
  • We start off with a quick round of introductions (every night!), to say who you are, what you’re working on, and if you’d like help with your idea.
  • There will be pizza/beer/pop if you're hungry/thirsty.
  • We don’t go too late. 9-10pm is good. Focus usually wanes by this point, for obvious reasons! Maybe if there’s interest we'll head to a bar for more discussion

    I couldn't find a more recent place to post this.

    I came to one openhack and had a great time. I worked on learning Python. I expect to come again (to work on more programming oriented tasks).

    I'm also looking for something a bit different that doesn't seem to fit OpenHack:

    At any given time, I have 5 - 10 usually minor things on my Linux (kubuntu precise) notebook that don't work or don't work the way I want them too.

    I Google and post on WNYLUG and get a lot of help, but some things require someone to have access to the notebook to see what is happening. Most of these things would benefit from being researched in advance, so would require some communication/coordination.

    Is there any way/"place" where things like this can be addressed?

    I would, of course, be willing to help others with similar issues where I might be able to help find solutions.

    The following is listed as a typical example. It is not intended as a request for help on this list.

    Whenever I start KDE (and the desktop session restores with Dolphin and Firefox running (maximized)), I get two unwanted icons added to my taskbar, one for Firefox and one for Dolphin. I delete them, but they always come back the next time I start KDE. This started relatively recently. It did not occur before.
