We're planing for a 3 hour event, from 16:00 - 19:00 UTC. In some common time zones:
- India: 9:30PM - 12:30AM
- London: 5PM - 8PM
- US Eastern: Noon - 3PM
- US Central: 11AM - 2PM
- US Mountain: 10AM - 1PM
- US Pacific: 9AM - Noon
If you can't make it, don't worry: the IRC logs will be available.
This developer day is going to be focused on the Python code in our backend components, and the overall Novacut service architecture. You'll be able to ask lots of questions, and we'll walk you through the basics step by step.
We'll have three 1-hour sessions:
- 16:00 UTC: bzr and Launchpad workflow
- 17:00 UTC: CouchDB, microfiber, and our schema scheme
- 18:00 UTC: Meet filestore, the heart of dmedia
Ubuntu is our primary development platform, and so things will be easiest if you have an Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal install handy, even if just running in VirtualBox.
To be ahead of the game, you should add the Novacut Daily Builds PPA and install a few things in advance, which you can do easiest by copy and pasting these 3 commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:novacut/daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bzr couchdb python3-microfiber python3-filestore
And you probably want to read this so you have a bit more background before Saturday.
We hope you to see you then!
