    Georgia Tech Hack Day Georgia Tech Hack Day Presentation Transcript

    • HackTech Christian Heilmann | http://wait-till-i.com | http://scriptingenabled.org Georgia, Atlanta, US, Hack-U Georgia Tech, March 2009
    • Hello, I am Chris.
    • I am a hacker and a geek.
    • And I love to share my passion.
    • http://wait-till-i.com http://twitter.com/codepo8
    • It is nice to be back in Atlanta.
    • Last time I was here for the Webmaster Jam session
    • All work and no play.
    • This time I am here to help out with the University Hack Day for Georgia Tech.
    • As part of a big hack team.
    • All of which are not here yet because of snow.
    • I live in London, England.
    • And coming here I made a new enemy.
    • Arrival + Passport Control + waiting for luggage. Hartsfield Airport
    • Go through customs + put luggage on another conveyor belt. Hartsfield Airport
    • Go through security once more – belt out, shoes off, laptop out. Hartsfield Airport
    • Take train to main Hartsfield Airport baggage retrieval
    • Your luggage is probably here Hartsfield Airport
    • All the luggage from all the flights of the same airline gets collected in the arrivals hall for pickup at a single point.
    • This baggage belt is publicly available, no need to have a ticket.
    • Asking for the reason of this procedure built to delay people and make it easy to steal luggage what is the answer?
    • Security, sir.
    • This was not built by geeks.
    • Geeks are great to have as they get excited about everything.
    • Geeks are also full of ideas and need a channel to release these ideas.
    • This is why we at Yahoo have Hack Days.
    • For 24 hours normal work is put on hold and the geeks are allowed to roam free.
    • We can take any of our systems and build something totally new with it.
    • This allows people to do what they always wanted but didn’t have a chance to.
    • It also allows people to play with new technologies.
    • This was such a massive success that we thought to take it on the road.
    • We now have Open Hack Days around the globe. Sunnyvale (2x), Taiwan, London, Bangalore (2x), Sao Paulo
    • These are massive affairs
    • And we do University Hack Days! USA, India, Great Britain
    • These are somewhat smaller.
    • But they follow the same flow.
    • But they follow the same flow. Hack
    • Snack Hack Recharge Eat!
    • Hack Fix Present Win!
    • The question is though: where do you start?
    • After all, you are not a geek, right?
    • A good hack starts with an idea.
    • It starts with something you care about.
    • And it starts with having fun with it.
    • Nobody expects you to deliver the hottest new thing for the market.
    • But we expect you to have a good stab at building something new.
    • A good hack doesn’t need to be a big thing.
    • But it should make a difference.
    • Here’s one not so current example.
    • HACKER! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Snow_(physician)
    • John Snow helped the London authorities in 1854 to trace back the reason of cholera...
    • ...by placing the deaths caused by cholera on a map and analyze the surroudings.
    • The answer: water supply!
    • This hack relied on the first thing you should think about.
    • DATA
    • John Snow spent quite a while collecting his data.
    • Nowadays this is much easier and you don’t need to be a data wizard.
    • What do you see when you surf the web?
    • End users see web sites
    • Developers see code.
    • I see sweet, sweet data!
    • And it has never been easier to get these sweets and bake them into something new.
    • The oldest way is to cheat your way in using a very cool piece of software.
    • Using cURL, you can be your own browser and get any data from the web to remix.
    • The problems are that you don’t get the data back in a structured way.
    • You’re at the mercy of the HTML structure and if that one changes your hack fails to work.
    • This is why clever companies realized that it does make sense to offer their data in easier to digest formats.
    • RSS or Really Simple Syndication was born.
    • http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/restaurants
    • http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/restaurants/rss
    • Using RSS or Atom feeds you get data in a predictable and easy to convert format.
    • It doesn’t allow you to request specific data or define a different format though.
    • This was the next step: REST APIs or Web Services.
    • REST based Web Services allow you to request the correct data from a system.
    • Yahoo Answers http://uk.answers.yahoo.com
    • http://answers.yahooapis.com/ AnswersService/V1/questionSearch? query=sunderland&region=uk&lang=e n&appid=yahoodemo
    • ... lots more...
    • http://developer.yahoo.com/answers/V1/questionSearch.html
    • A lot of web services also allow you to choose your data format.
    • http://answers.yahooapis.com/ AnswersService/V1/questionSearch? query=sunderland&region=uk&lang=e n&appid=yahoodemo&start=1&output= json&callback=useme
    • This makes it dead easy to get the data and re-use it in your own interfaces.
    • What if you want to use several sources?
    • There’s Yahoo Pipes for mixing, filtering and matching.
    • http://pipes.yahoo.com
    • Or if you like SQL-style data conversion there’s YQL:
    • http://developer.yahoo.com/yql/console/
    • Both of these systems allow you to reach data from Yahoo and other services and pre- filter it for use in your own hacks.
    • Let’s think about the next thing you should consider about your hack.
    • A working and interesting interface.
    • I don’t care what interface your hack uses.
    • However, if your build a web application...
    • ... be aware that it is deceptively easy to write HTML, CSS and JavaScript...
    • ... but there are dozens of ways to mess it up.
    • The wild wild web is full of bad browsers and setups.
    • You have no right to require a certain setup and you have no clue about what is used.
    • Therefore it is a good idea to find a way to abstract these unknowns away from you.
    • If you’re thinking about building something running on mobiles (cell phones), this increases tenfold.
    • Two helpers (from us) are available to you:
    • Here are our helpers: YUI BluePrint http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/ http://mobile.yahoo.com/developers
    • There will be detailed talks about these later in the week.
    • One thing I want people to think about when building interfaces.
    • Think about accessibility.
    • Any web product should be available to users regardless of their ability.
    • The next thing to wonder is how to get users for your hack.
    • One cool thing is that companies nowadays not only offer their data to you...
    • ...but also allow you to piggy- back on their user relationships.
    • http://developer.yahoo.com/social/socialdir/ http://code.google.com/apis/opensocial/ http://developers.facebook.com/connect.php
    • You can also build applications for where people are anyways.
    • http://developer.yahoo.com/yap/
    • vv v ||v |v | .-, | | | .--./ / | _.---.| '-. (__..-quot; And of course a| ',.__. ,__.-'/ there is Twitter. '--/_.'----'` T H E W HA L E SLEEPS T O N I G HT
    • How about some hack examples?
    • Let’s take Twitter.
    • I’m a big Twitter user.
    • I like that I get notified when there is a new person following me.
    • What I don’t know is when people left me.
    • Or what I was telling the world before they left me.
    • (which could be related)
    • So I read the API docs, and found the user_timeline function. http://apiwiki.twitter.com/REST+API+Documentation#usertimeline
    • Notice the repetition.
    • For every tweet there is the whole user information and a timestamp.
    • Using this I could show the change in user numbers and see if that happened in a very short period of time.
    • Adding YUI CSS grids and Google Charts I built TweetEffect.com
    • http://tweeteffect.com/?user=codepo8
    • And ended up where I quite didn’t expect to be.
    • Another quick example. This time from Rasmus.
    • How do you get a map of all the current earthquakes on the planet?
    • http://paul.slowgeek.com/hacku/examples/ jslibrary4.php
    • What about reach? That was us, time for you to show what you can do!
    • Build teams and think of a hack.
    • Find a need.
    • Or look at an existing solution from a different angle.
    • And then know where to go.
    • All of our APIs, documentation and examples: http://developer.yahoo.com
    • Very quick and dirty code examples for hacks: http://paul.slowgeek.com/hacku/
    • Rasmus Lerdorf’s demos http://talks.php.net/show/hacku/1
    • Start thinking about the hack and plan it.
    • You will have 24 hours to build a working prototype.
    • Don’t get lost in shiny bells and whistles and try to impress with a snazzy interface.
    • Don’t be too shy to ask for help, we are here all week!
    • Don’t listen to the feature creature on your shoulder to add yet another thing to the hack.
    • Instead plan for a solid base functionality and then build on top of that.
    • However, don’t get too stressed when there are a few broken bits.
    • We want you to find your own potential and show us what you can do with our offers!
    • THANKS! Keep in touch: Christian Heilmann http://wait-till-i.com http://scriptingenabled.org http://twitter.com/codepo8
