Hack 25 – April 2022
This hackday featured lots of great book recommendations and van chat, all captured in the discord chat, as well as Lots of general non-technical chatter, a hallmark of a successful hackday.
Things people Did
Dan had some raspberry pi’s that did not have golang installed, and then he installed it. And then he reinstalled it!
Piers unveiled the latest updates to the camper van, and discussed how it is basically kubernetes for physical van systems. Though the name “campernetes” was suggested, it has yet to catch on.
Ryan re-emerged to great fanfare, and filled us in on all the sleep he’s been having. He tooled around with all of the following, some of them semi-successfully:
lima. Most of the issues came from him trying to develop all this on a Mac, which was generally acknowledged to be a bad idea.
Ruth found great success putting dots on exactly one square of a rendered html canvas, a continuation of her previous work from another hackday. This was easily the biggest success of the day.
Adam was intending to make great strides with putting all the things into a gitpod setup, but then ranted to Ryan for 2 hours about changing tech Ed, and then got roped into watching a terminal show network issues with local k8s development. He ended up picking one application to put into gitpod, but didn’t get it configured.
