Group Assignment

Everyone should try writing the code to satisfy this github issue, or at least think through how you would write the code and test it. If you have time, take a stab at it before Wednesday so we can consider the different approaches we come up with. This will give us an opportunity to look at API design, IO streams, and unit testing.

Tuesday Call: Use Cases for Dat Jawn

Time: Tuesday 3pm. Location: Google Hangout

Matt has organized a call to gather use cases for Jawn. The goal is to get real-world stories about how people will be using this software. The call is mid-day, so most of you won't be able to join. That's fine! You can watch the recording, and there will be more calls like this in the future.

This will be a public Hangout On Air, meaning anyone can watch the conversation live and ask questions in the Dat irc channel https://gitter.im/datproject/discussions The call will be recorded and available on YouTube afterwards.

Wednesday Working Session

Time: Wednesday 6pm-9pm. Location: Devnuts 908 North 3rd Street, Philadelphia, PA

This is our weekly in-person working session.

This week we'll be at Devnuts, which is the place where most Code for Philly meetups have been happening for the past few months.

Thursday Call with Mathias Buus from Dat Project

Time: Thursday 6pm-9pm. Location:Google Hangout

Discussion: Tracking Tabular Data in Hypercore
