Introduction to Hacking for University Hack Day

  1. 1. Dundee University Hack Day, Mark II Christian Heilmann Dundee, Scotland, November 2007
  2. 2. <ul><li>Welcome Hackers. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Hackers? </li></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>but in reality… </li></ul>
  5. 7.
  6. 8. Karl Koch a.k.a. Hagbard Celine
  7. 9. <ul><li>The “real” hackers had a dream. </li></ul>
  8. 10. <ul><li>“ Wissen muss für jeden Menschen gleich zugänglich sein!“ </li></ul>
  9. 11. <ul><li>“ Information is free and needs to be accessible for everyone.“ </li></ul>
  10. 12. <ul><li>The good news is that we are well on the way. </li></ul>
  11. 13. <ul><li>The other good news is that we don’t need to resort to illegal activity. </li></ul>
  12. 14. <ul><li>More and more companies realize that offering information for the world to re-mix is a great idea. </li></ul>
  13. 15. <ul><li>This starts with RSS feeds to subscribe to without having to visit web sites. </li></ul>
  14. 16. <ul><li>… and it ends with full fledged Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). </li></ul>
  15. 17. <ul><li>APIs allow access to systems and retrieve information in the desired format. </li></ul>
  16. 18. <ul><li> </li></ul>
  17. 19. <ul><li>What we do with this information is up to us. </li></ul>
  18. 20. <ul><li>Hacking with it is one idea. </li></ul>
  19. 21. <ul><li>Hacking in this case: </li></ul><ul><li>You make a system do what it doesn’t do out of the box. </li></ul><ul><li>You built upon structures that are already in place. </li></ul>
  20. 23. <ul><li>You can achieve that in different ways. </li></ul>
  21. 24. <ul><li>By mixing one system with another (a Mashup). </li></ul>
  22. 25. <ul><li>By accessing or displaying information in a different fashion. </li></ul>
  23. 26. <ul><li>Interesting Platforms: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Maps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Messenger </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Air / Flex </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Facebook </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Twitter </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flickr </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Upcoming </li></ul></ul>
  24. 27. <ul><li>Above all hacking should be about having fun and achieving something you always wanted to try. </li></ul>
  25. 28. <ul><li>This is what Hack Day is inside Yahoo! </li></ul>
  26. 29. <ul><li>We want our developers to challenge our products and make them better for users. </li></ul>
  27. 30. <ul><li>We also want our developers to challenge themselves to try something new. </li></ul>
  28. 31. <ul><li>And we want to challenge the business people to see what is possible when you let developers play. </li></ul>
  29. 32. <ul><li>… and now we offer the same possibility to you. </li></ul>
  30. 33. <ul><li>Feel the developer’s itch. </li></ul>
  31. 34. <ul><li>Use APIs, systems, SDKs and ideas and do something that helps you and isn’t available yet. </li></ul>
  32. 35. <ul><li>Past hacks that rocked: </li></ul><ul><li>Search everything (photos, videos, web) from inside your messenger. </li></ul><ul><li>Get images related to the lyrics of a song while you play it. </li></ul><ul><li>Tag files on your harddrive to find them later on. </li></ul><ul><li>Share and collaboratively annotate pictures with others using desktop widgets. </li></ul><ul><li>Allow people to doodle on maps and send a replay to their friends </li></ul><ul><li>Offer live information on traffic problems using instant messaging and mobile alerts. </li></ul>
  33. 36. <ul><li>Christian Heilmann </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>Get Hacking!
