We’ve decided start a Group Project as part of our monthly meetup.
Having a group project provides a common reference for OpenHack members. It also offers a place for new members to jump in and contribute.
The project goal is to create The Ultimate Syracuse Live Music & Art Event Calendar.
The application will aggregate event data from the social accounts and websites of local musicians, venues, and community pages.
With live updating event data, the app will provide multiple ways to view events. In essence the app attempts to answer the question: “What is going on in Syracuse?”
What We Have So Far
An empty repository on GitHub, Codename Otto.
There is no right way to do anything, no one’s code is sacred. Remember: this is all a fun learning exercise.
Have a suggestion? Open an issue on GitHub.
The Most Important Rule
Be nice to each other. We are all here to learn something new.
The Tech Stack
Moving forward, this project should provide a broad range of development options. Such as:
- Proper web design! Which will be required at some point
- Solid unit and integration testing
- Deployment / Devops options (I’d love to see us try out new tech like docker and CoreOS for deployment)
So, that’s it. Let’s build something great!
