As I do my gists I will play with new things. For tomorrow: a Python script which loads a CSV file into MongoDB. The day after the goal is to come up with a map-reduce for that.
I sincerely invite the (maybe) one person who is reading this to suggest some ideas for gists. Remember, keep it small.
I’m thinking of holding an install party the first last weekend in July. Anybody game? I would propose a few different agenda items:
1. Install GNU/Linux of your desired flavor (bring your own ISO, I’ll bring Ubuntu and Kubuntu 13.04 images to share)
2. Intro to contributing to Free Software, and what it takes to contribute
Denny’s will have their full menu available to us the whole time, and they do have free wifi and a community space for us.
Please use the comments section to RSVP.
When: July 27th @ 12:30pm – 4:30pm
Where: In the Community Room of Denny’s at 702 W Town Center Blvd, Champaign, IL 61822 (Map: http://goo.gl/NQOu7)
