Bone101 Status 1 Week

Hi Community
Last week I got some issues and couldn't present you a status of Bone101.

I updated the template and had almost done the final design. You can check it here: http://diegotc.github.io/bone101/Support/GSOC/template.html
The option for the View All, is the one that is giving me some problems. I'm not quite sure if the way that is right now is the proper way of showing it.

Personal Observations
  • Planning to change the blue color(http://diegotc.github.io/bone101/Support/GSOC/BLINKINGTUTORIALS/Blink.html), for some orange or some BeagleBoard color. Need to confirm this with Jason.
To do for this week

  • I just began to work with the Github API. Need to create a login page for writing tutorials.
  • Need to play around with the Flickr API. Need to confirm with Jason if we're going to use the flickr system for hosting images.
  • Have the option of forking the project. I have to test this.

These are my goals for this week.

I just read that Atom the editor is going open source.


So I just installed it and begin playing with it. Important. This is a beta version

These are the steps for installing Atom in Ubuntu 14.04

First we need to install and configure nodejs.

Install
Configure
We need to be sure that we have the following versions of install:




  • node.js v0.10.x
  • npm v1.4.x
  • For doing this we do the following:
    Install Dependencies
    Install
    If you get an error like this one "/usr/local/share/atom/atom: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
    Do the following:

    I have been selected in the GSOC 2014

    I know this is not an Ubuntu related post. But I really wanted to share to the Ubuntu Community that I was selected to be part of the Google Summer of Code 2014. Just a special thanks to Paul Tagliamonte (@paultag) told me to continue trying after not being selected last year.

    April 21st was a great day for me!
    I received an email from Google informing that my proposal was accepted.
    I will be working this summer with the BeagleBoard.org organization.
    My project is to improve the on-board tutorial enviroment for BeagleBone with live running interactive examples.

    If you want to read more about the 7 projects of BeagleBone, you can read them here

    Hackaton 2014. Hackiemos la seguridad en nuestro país.

    Primer hackaton que participo. En lo personal el evento estuvo bien organizado. Los organizadores hicieron un buen trabajo. Comida, refresco, agua no falto. El internet ciertos momentos del día hubieron problemas, pero no fue algo que afecto el desarrollo de los proyectos. Lo digo otra vez más los organizadores se llevan un 99% en logística.

    Lo malo.

    Claro que hubo cosas malas. Y creo que una de ellas es la conformación del jurado. No estuvo bien equilibrado. Había un juez, un abogado, un oficial de policía y una web designer. Pero hay que tomar en consideración que la web designer no hablaba ni entendía el español.  Los organizadores no garantizaron a los presentes que la traducción fue de calidad. Ejemplo cuando ella dio unas palabras y la persona que traducía tuvo que preguntarle que había dicho.
    Aparte de esto, considero que hicieron falta más personas en el jurado. Dejamos a un lado los psicólogos, maestros, líderes de barrios y colonias. Estas personas están necesitados de herramientas las cuales fueron presentadas en el evento. Pero un abogado no ve la importancia de eso. El ve lo que más cree el que sea conveniente.
    La idea de pre revisiones estuvo buena. Pero creo que no se efectuó de la mejor manera. Es cierto que es un evento entre amigos y conocidos. Pero hay que recordar que esto era una competencia y al final alguien quiere ganar y para evitar malos comentarios hay que hacer las cosas como se deben.
    Las pre-revisiones no fueron la gran cosa, simplemente unas cuantas preguntas y listo. Se tuvo que ser un poco más estricto en esto.
    Cuando los grupos se presentaron hubo grupos que hasta la mitad de la presentación apareció la imagen y se podía ver su proyecto. Hubo un grupo que no mostro su proyecto a los presentes, solo mostraron su teléfono a los jueces.  Esto deja que se mal interprete  las cosas.

     Detalles así fueron las cosas malas que vi. Todo lo demás lo considero que estuvo bueno.
