Every single Friday in the morning DiNa developers are sitting together and raise issues related to multiple topics. From feature requests to bug fixing or code reviews, usually concerning a current project of DiNa, coding dojos or games in bigger groups. Sometimes developers prepare a presentation about a topic they find relevant to rehearse for a public presentation or meetup.
It is important for us to contribute the Ruby on Rails community; we suggest and discuss possible topics and content of presentations for the budapest.rb on the devmeetings (here’s a short summary about the last meetup we held at DiNa). We also try to contribute other open source communities by fixing bugs and developing third party library tools.
Last Friday we were wholly immersed in three stories by Code Hulk.
Code Hulk is basically a web app that checks your coding awesomeness. It’s loosely based on the Space Hulk game, the Iron Sky film and some of our own internal exercises. It ruthlessly checks your programming skills.
In space. Versus space Nazis. We built it in around a week of non-full-time work. – says Mirek Wozniak
Spaceship. Rabbit. Evil.
In the tasks we followed the white rabbit, deciphered the last message of the wing leader and counted the number of Joules the “White Rabbit” spaceship may use to get to the Earth.
We believe that it's a great tool to challenge our programming knowledge and to learn new things.
The next step would be for us to start developing an application together. If we manage it or proceed with any other issue, we’ll definitely let you know…
