The greatest thing since sliced time

The WW GNU/Linux Video Conference/Programming-Event

Featuring GPL SW & Community Distros

Upcoming Events :


About the Conference:

Hopefully, this will grow to become a weekly education, research, and development event.

The main goal is to assist in generating & spreading knowledge about useful software, in order to help people create more such useful software.

Each week, we will focus on one particular piece or set of software:

  • Examples: The Debian OS (or other GPL community ?OSs'), KDE, Open Office, ?XWindows, IRC, VoIP, Games, ?VideoConferencing, ?TuxPaint, Apache...

There will be videonetcast talks (maybe 2 to 8 hours) about that software (by it's leading developers, or someone else well qualified to describe the existing architecture, features, bugs, and anticipated improvements).

There will be live Q&A from around the world, involving the listeners & the speakers.

Then world wide collaborative interaction, involving Discussing, Designing, Programming, Debuging, and Arting. Generating both incremental & major version improvements.

The goals are:

  • 1 Research improved methods, techniques,...
  • 2 Educate students about know knowledge, techniques, methods, procedures, history
  • 3 Develop more, new, and improved sw, systems, art. Tools to help people & society,

  • 4 Social - provide means for community interaction & sharing

CONTENTS:

  • 1) WHATITIS - who will be where at what times
  • 2) WHO COMPUTER - Who is bringing what computer equipment
  • 3) WHO OTHERSTUFF - Who is bringing what other stuff
  • 4) MISC - Miscellaneous
  • 5) Some notes about editing this page


1) WHATITIS

  • The World Wide Debain Video Conference/Programming-Event
  • A weekly event. Video netcast. Whirled Worledwide. For GPL Free SW writers, artists & users.

  • Each week we'll focus on one particular sw package or system. We'll have several hours of talks from the lead persons for the project, covering: 1) The structure of the system, 2) The current system features, 3) Known bugs to be fixed, 4) New features to be added.
  • People will be able to ask questions to the speaker (originally through IRC) and the speakers will answer through the videocast.
  • Then people will have an opportunity to collaborate world wide in real time to design & develop new sw, debug, & develop artwork or documentation. - Bring your laptop or PC.

  • The goals: Learn new things, produce better & more GPL Free SW, and have fun. :)


Past Events:

Come to the Bay Area Debian Meeting, in person or online, Wed 11/12 6+PM


IRC clients:

Some Notes from this meeting: IRC clients: bitchX, ?KVirc Xchat and konversation irssi-text kopete which is a KDE IM program with an IRC plugin.

Kvirc 3 is the best irc client for linux. It uses QT and thus blends fairly seamlessly into your kde environment. Forget about xchat. It is crap. Kvirc 2 is in unstable and it is ok, but you really should try to install kvirc 3 as it has a lot of nice features. Homepage is here: http://www.kvirc.net/ CVS snapshot debs are here: ftp://ftp.kvirc.de/pub/kvirc/snapshots/debian I have had various problems with those though, so I always compile my own version from cvs sources.

What are the best windowed IRC clients, and which are apt-get'able? http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2003/debian-kde-200310/msg00275.html Oh - the KVIRC reply is here: http://lists.debian.org/debian-kde/2003/debian-kde-200310/msg00327.html

IRC stuff http://bad.debian.net/list/2003-November/002332.html irssi's the only way to go. Period. www.irssi.org, irssi-text and irssi-snapshot in Debian. Failing that, xchat is nice eye candy. ScrollZ is ?ircII-based

Instant Messaging clients:

gaim - an AOL IM client for gnome


Wifi 802.11 stuff to do:

set up a laptop as an AP. Also, get the laptop connected to the AP on the internet. Bridging.

Server stuff to do:

Also, get an IRC server running on the laptop.


This is rev 0.1.x of this web site. More to come soon. (040224)
