Act Hackathon planned next week

[ #36162 ]

YAPC::Asia 2008 organizers would like to thank Eric Cholet, the author of ACT for the great conference organizing software that powers most of YAPCs and Perl Workshops.

To show the appreciation in the hacker's way, I'm flying to Paris, France next weekend (April 25-28) funded by YAPC::Asia possible profit, to work on Act feature enhancement.

We plan to work on these things because we want them for YAPC::Asia:

* OpenID provider support
* Better Japanese names display (i18n)
* Embed videos and slides (YouTube, Google Video, Slideshare etc.) in talks
* Personal Scheduling (Who is attending to which talks) like Sched.org or icalico
* Online check-in API (Who actually showed up when)
* Promotional code / coupon for discounted payments

We (at least, I) prioritize implementing these because the trip is funded by YAPC::Asia but if there's anything you think is missing for Act, I'd love to hear. Remote participation (#act on irc.perl.org during the weekend) would be welcome too!

  • Yay, OpenID! If you get that done, hopefully it will convince the rest of the Perl community sites to join in.
  • Good for you, taking the initiative to make things happen. I wish you the best of luck! If only more complainers (read: me) were like you!
