MagicMirror² Hackathon 2018
What is a hackathon?
I contributed and created a lot of 3rd party modules during my studies. Since I have a job I barely find time to maintain just one of them. So I want to spend 48h to get them back to live.
It’s happening from 2018-12-26 08:00 until 2018-12-28 08:00 UTC time zone.
How can I contribute?
Be a Product Owner
Add your ideas for the hackathon and create issues in this project. They can be new features, bug fixes or improvements to the core project or any third party module (don’t forget to link the repository). Make sure you give detailed descriptions etc. Also note if there is a specific hardware required, as not everyone has this hardware and it is not easy to develop without actually being able to test it properly. The same rule applies if there is an api key required, because some providers go through a manual review which is most likely stopped during the holidays.
Be a Developer
If you want to contribute, then pick an idea of the project board, leave a comment on the issue that you started working on it. As soon as you finish create a pull request to the project.
Be a Quality Assurance
If you want to contribute, then pick an issue in the review state of the project board, test the changes and leave comments with what needs to be changed or if is not working. If everything is fine give your thumbs up.
How can I follow the process?
First I wanted to stream, so people can watch me coding. But my internet is too weak, in order to provide a decent quality
But I’m trying to update the project board as often as reasonable. I will also be available through discord, where I want to give updates or talk to people or answer coding related questions.
For more information checkout the github repository or contact me on discord.
So far there are three user contributions. I added labels to all issues for a better overview and filtering.
I also marked issues for beginners that want to participate in the hackathonhttps://github.com/fewieden/MagicMirror-Hackathon/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3A"good+first+issue"
Less than 24h until the hackathon starts.
So far it looks like, that I’m the only participant on the coding side. Would be cool if someone else wants to join for coding and/or testing. Participating partially is of course also fine.
its a bad time for most of us
I’m in for this. Been looking at the problems list. Got a few things already in the works. Hoping to have them up and going very soon.
Like @sdetweil mentioned, this is a pretty busy time of the year. So, I’ve also been busy with holiday stuff.
@justjim1220 just join in the discord channel we’re hanging out there.
I just posted a fix for the NFL module to reverse the teams…
Please look at it, I need to learn how to do a pull request…
@justjim1220 sure I will explain it in the discord chat
Second day started
