Zwiki Bunker

Hack the planet... what else?

My spanish friends r0sk and Wu coined the term "bunker" for a couple of hackers getting together and working/teaching/learning together on some topics till late in the night. Had the first Zwiki bunker here now... still tired today. What happened? Yesterday evening tralala (George Tellalov) came over to my place so we could do some work on a new plugin for Zwiki. What we were trying to do is build a proper plugin, following the functionality of the TaggingPrototype from John Maxwell.

It's been a long time that I had the chance to do some pair programming. It was great. tralala is an extremely capable python programmer. I hope I was able to give him some pointers on the Zope and Zwiki related stuff (and some links into using darcs). Looks like I have some reading up to do in the python department :-) e.g. this unifying types and classes thing. I'm so behind the times.

Unfortunately the solution evaded us in the last moment. It was all set up nice and cool, but something got stuck in the Zope innards. The tagging stuff itself is no big deal, straightforward. But we were also aiming at providing a proper hook system for plugins to register snippets of html to display in the wiki interface. tralala found an elegant solution, it's just not working with Zope yet. Stay tuned!

Re: Zwiki Bunker

Bunkers are great. We have been doing them here since near 7 or 8 years ago. I can remember the first ones, installing some Linux and BSD operating systems in a bunch of old boxes, just to play a little bit and learn about setting up things like apache, sendmail, qmail and the such.

Now we meet from time to time, and we focus ourselves in showing each other some new things, like the Python programming language, the use of a web framework or how to set up some interesting services (snort last time).

Nice to hear you had some good experience with bunkers there too.

Re: Zwiki Bunker

Bunkers are a good time to share learnings and experiences. Next one -here- will be based on python I think.
