01:43 _NinJaSoul Hi everyone! This is my second time on IRC. Looking for some advice on getting into open-source projects.
01:44 marktraceur _NinJaSoul: Hi there! What sort of thing do you want to work on?
01:45 _NinJaSoul So I have just completed the basics of python. I have been doing some problems on TopCoder and Project Euler. I wanted to look at some real world python projects which I can dig into and possibly contribute.
01:47 britta it can be especially fun to work on a project that you use
01:47 paulproteus _NinJaSoul: Cool!
01:47 I am unfortunately mostly prepping for an event, so I can't be all that helpful, but I wanted to say that is awesome, _NinJaSoul.
01:47 _NinJaSoul paulproteus: Thanks
01:48 marktraceur _NinJaSoul: So, here's a good first question: What free software do you use right now?
01:49 _NinJaSoul Well I would say I mostly work with statistical packages. I have been converting some MATLAB code into Numpy+Scipy code
01:49 But I want to get into web development
01:50 create visualizations of data and put it up on a web framework or something
01:51 britta oh hey, this might be interesting: http://www.reddit.com/r/openso[…]ct_to_contribute/ - a person asking for suggestions who also is interested in python and visualization
01:52 _NinJaSoul Thanks britta. I will check it out.
01:52 britta i suggested looking at http://brigade.codeforamerica.org/civic-coding
01:53 paulproteus If you like Numpy+Scipy stuff...you might like https://github.com/matplotlib/[…]reated&state=open
01:53 https://github.com/matplotlib/[…]otlib/issues/2136 would be a great starter ticket I think
01:54 It would take some work, and make some changes to the code!
01:54 But it would be a huge usability boost for the library.
01:54 _NinJaSoul I was thinking of starting out with a project where I get to know how Python ode is written and maintained in real-world settings. Currently I have just been doing small problems and haven't had much exposure to large scale application code.
01:54 paulproteus matplotlib was my first open source project I contributed a patch to <http://matplotlib.1069221.n5.n[…]dius-td29622.html> and I had a really great time.
01:54 marktraceur _NinJaSoul: We also have our good friend paroneayea here, who is the maintainer of http://mediagoblin.org
01:54 Though it's less about visualisation. :)
01:55 * marktraceur is helpful
01:55 paulproteus marktraceur++
01:55 NicMcPhee joined #openhatch
01:55 marktraceur In any case, it's written in Python and is as real-world as it gets in the free software world (at least that I can think of), because it powers mg.viewskew.com
01:56 in the free Python software world *
01:56 paulproteus Hi NicMcPhee! We are safe and sound in Morris!
01:56 _NinJaSoul: What do you think of https://github.com/matplotlib/[…]otlib/issues/2136 ?
01:56 _NinJaSoul Thanks marktraceur. I will definitely check out the links you provided
01:56 marktraceur Yup yup
01:56 NicMcPhee That is excellent!
01:57 paulproteus BTW, all, greet NicMcPhee, who is one of the amazing Morris-based hosts for http://morris.openhatch.org/ tomorrow!
01:57 _NinJaSoul This looks to be something I can help with paulproteus.
01:57 NicMcPhee I just got out of a Homecoming event at the U and am about to head home. Is there anything I can do here before I take off?
01:57 Hi everyone :-)
01:57 paulproteus shauna: can you think of anything? NicMcPhee, I think we're in good shape.
01:57 britta hi NicMcPhee!
01:57 paulproteus _NinJaSoul: Do make sure to leave a remark on the ticket saying you want to look into it so that others know that!
01:57 shauna Not that I can think of, NicMcPhee.
01:57 paulproteus (and to say you're bored of it if you end up wandering off!)
01:58 _NinJaSoul But isn't matplotlib made up of C+Python code mixed together?
01:58 shauna NicMcPhee: are you our driver in case of rain tomorrow?
01:58 paulproteus This part is pure Python I *think*.
01:58 shauna We're fine walking if the weather's nice.
01:58 paulproteus Certainly the patch I provided in 2006 was pure Python.
01:59 NicMcPhee Looks like there's a pretty good chance of rain. Why don't we just plan on having me pick you up? When do you want to be on campus?
02:01 _NinJaSoul okay paulproteus. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I hope to hang out more often here to get great advice!
02:01 paulproteus Awesome, _NinJaSoul
02:02 _NinJaSoul: You could ask on the ticket if they think it'll require touching C. Make sure to say you are trying to use the ticket as a learning opportunity, and that you're newish but excited to succeed, so that people don't just take it from you and take away your chance to learn meaningfully.
02:02 _NinJaSoul: There's a PyCon video somewhere about how to read large codebases, too; that's probably worth watching.
02:02 _NinJaSoul Sure. I will do that paulproteus.
02:02 paulproteus iirc it's somewhere in our openhatch.readthedocs.org site.
02:03 _NinJaSoul paulproteus. I would love that. Can you provide a link?
02:04 paulproteus At the moment I am swamped but either someone else can or you can look above or else I can later.
02:07 _NinJaSoul Sure. I will look into the docs. Thanks.
02:08 NicMcPhee shaun a & paulproteus I'm headed home now. I mailed you my cell if you want to text me about a ride tomorrow morning.

15:56 Elena is there an easy way to look for hashtags?
15:56 danflies Fixing documentation is my favorite things to do on open source projects.
15:56 paulproteus Elena: Within IRC, you can list the channels that exist by typing /list
15:57 paroneayea heya
15:57 AlexG why so sorry paul?
15:57 Elena cool, thanks!
15:57 paulproteus Heya paroneayea!

15:57 paulproteus paroneayea: http://tasks.openhatch.org/ -- look we have mediagoblin links
15:58 Elena: Within a particular channel, there isn't an easy way to search the past messages (just in case I misunderstood what you were asking about)
15:58 NicMcPhee The URL for the issues is https://github.com/openhatch/o[…]-to-campus/issues
15:58 Elena I was wondering about specific channels, e.g. how do I find everything related to python?
16:00 paulproteus I usually do a few things -- I just join channels whose names seem relevant, and then look in the topic at the top to see if they mention other ones I might care about.
16:00 Elena is there a way to look for all channels with "python" in them?
16:01 also, remind me - how do you write a response to someone? Thanks!
16:01 Dolmec joined #openhatch
16:01 satyag Elena: well easy way would be get a list of all channels then grep for python in the list of channels
16:02 paulproteus Oh my goodness, when I do /list I get a LOT of channels.
16:02 Elena: You type someone's name (or partial), then press tab, and then your message.
16:02 It's really all just strings here on IRC.
16:02 satyag you can do a exec from Gnu/linux too
16:02 Elena k, thanks
16:02 satyag for grep command
16:02 NicMcPhee You use "/query" followed by user name to set up a private chat.
16:03 Elena not private, just a public response, and it's for some reason doesn't work for me :-(

16:08 BTW, Elena, I searched https://www.google.com/search?[…]freenode+channels [search freenode channels] and found http://irc.netsplit.de/channels/?net=freenode where you can search for specific channels on freenode.

16:26 NicMcPhee Definitely – that is a totally amazing bug.
16:26 paulproteus *nod*, I can make sure to mention that in the future.
16:26 alexjarvis Since a lot fewer people use Debian directly these days, but a lot of people know Ubuntu.

16:29 At the risk of starting an OS argument ;)
16:29 paulproteus I just have been always using the latest development release.
16:29 AlexG Apple 6 is the best OS
16:30 alexjarvis Absolutely agree! I love when apps can read each other's memory.
16:30 MagicBriBri As in Mac OS 6? I run that on my Macintosh SE/30 from 1988!

16:30 AlexG It was made for a computer without a hard drive :P I find that so cool!

16:52 Elena shauna, of course ;-)
16:53 AlexG recursion is awesome!

17:00 NicMcPhee Morris folks: I just set up an install of xchat (an IRC tool http://xchat.org/docs/start/) in the lab, so Puppet should be pushing it out to the lab boxes while we're here.
17:00 ianrbuck Anybody else use DOSBox to run DOS games?
17:00 AlexG Tried it to play Elder Scrolls 1 once.
17:00 lenny joined #openhatch
17:00 ianrbuck I died very quickly in that game
17:00 AlexG You can do that from your rainbow mac Nic? cool
17:00 Elena NicMcPhee, thanks!
17:01 AlexG ianrbuck: I didn't get past the 1st room in the game. I had little patience at the time
17:01 NicMcPhee AlexG: Terminal + ssh is a mighty and wonderful tool. That's why we want to learn how to use shell tools and command line editors like emacs.
17:01 awolf joined #openhatch
17:01 NicMcPhee Elena: It was actually suggested by Andrew so thanks to him. :)
17:02 MKDramdahl__ joined #openhatch
17:02 AlexG NicMcPhee: I'll need to get shell commands on my Windows OS. Can you recommend any good progs for that?
17:03 JohnMcCall AlexG: Cygwin
17:03 Is pretty good
17:03 Andrew ^
17:03 YaDontSay Putty is good for SSH
17:03 MKDramdahl__ left #openhatch
17:03 NicMcPhee Thanks JohnMcCall – that's what I was going to recommend.
17:03 AlexG JohnMcCall: Thanks. Googling gives many results, and I didn't want to "fly blind". Also, I can see you o.O
17:05 MKDramdahl__ joined #openhatch
17:17 NicMcPhee Morris folks: meld and kdiff3 are being installed in the lab as we speak.
17:18 Andrew Now that we're in a installation spree, I guess at this point installing Civilization V and diablo 2 in the lab wouldn't be too unreasonable :-) kidding
17:18 an*
17:18 AlexG and Minecraft
17:18 NicMcPhee :-)
17:18 Andrew you can get minecraft on the lab really easily. It's just a jar
17:19 MagicBriBri Dropbox! 2.4 was released yesterday!
17:19 :)
17:19 AlexG Well I derped when I tried then. I must have unzipped it instead of just running it *shrug* (not that I've tried to do this :P)
17:19 NicMcPhee Dropbox is more complicated because we can't just do "yum install …". It's on our list of things to do, though.
17:20 AlexG "yum install …" :D
17:20 ianrbuck Google Drive still isn't on Linux and it makes me the sadz...
17:20 NicMcPhee :(
17:20 AlexG it's ok Ian, it's ok. (hug)
17:20 MagicBriBri True… And then you'd need to auto turn on selective sync so space isn't used up instantly.
17:21 NicMcPhee Yup
17:22 ianrbuck It's okay if I download the 66.5GB of stuff I have in Drive in the lab, right?
17:22 maxmarti How much disk space is still taken up by evolved robocode?
17:22 NicMcPhee Probably way too much :(
17:22 ianrbuck HypeMachine!
17:22 FTW
17:22 AlexG most people removed all that, didn't they? Ours rmed each thing we didn't want.
17:23 Andrew Given that there'd be like an 80% chance of the evolved robocode stuff starting with "r" we could prolly just do rm -rf /r* and be ok, right?
17:23 JohnMcCall ^ THis
17:23 NicMcPhee I think most people did, actually.
17:23 Ho, ho, ho :)
17:23 Andrew Disclaimer: don't do that
17:23 MagicBriBri Whoops, why doesn't this boot anymore?
17:23 AlexG what about "rm -rf"?
17:23 Andrew rm -rf *
17:24 AlexG fair enough. sshing into your machine as we speak~
17:24 NicMcPhee rm -rf /
17:24 MagicBriBri It auto-deletes everything that you want to be gone. It knows.
17:25 AlexG ssh andrewsmachine.morris.umn.edu
17:25 Andrew rm -rf ~/../mcca079
17:25 AlexG huh, didn't work
17:25 oh lordy Andrew :P
17:25 JohnMcCall mcca0798*
17:25 ianrbuck "Bash, do what I'm thinking right now"
17:25 AlexG "smash, smash, smaaaaash"
17:25 kklamberty All of you are horrible people. Shame.
17:25 * MagicBriBri shame
17:26 * AlexG shame
17:26 ianrbuck Didn't you figure that out during Software D, kklamberty?
17:26 NicMcPhee I heard from *so* many people this summer how important having on-line portfolios are on places like Github.
17:27 kklamberty I want to earn my next belt on Git. What must I do, Sensei?
17:27 NicMcPhee There are (sadly) lots of people with CSci degrees who can't actually build stuff, so having a portfolio is a great way of setting yourself apart.
17:27 kklamberty: :)
17:27 AlexG I've heard that multiple times from you guys, and it is hard to believe...
17:28 NicMcPhee https://wiki.umn.edu/UMMCSci/G[…]ndGithubResources has a lot of links to tutorials and such.
17:28 Andrew EVERYONE: This is a serious announcement. Along with what everyone is saying about being involved in Opensource successfully, be aware that an open-source club is beginning after Openhatch. We will be getting together and picking various open-source projects to work on together. It is as much of a time commitment as you want it to be. It's a great way to develop your portfolio, I'll be gathering names after Openhatch!
17:28 kklamberty I think I probably need to understand more about "core" and how to leave it alone, or how to not leave it alone… I don't think I have a good understanding about what that means or looks like.
17:28 shauna NicMcPhee: you should put the OpenHatch git tutorial on that page!
17:28 Andrew It'll probably start meeting next Saturday or so
17:28 lenny joined #openhatch
17:28 NicMcPhee shauna: Definitely – thanks for the suggestion!
17:31 Shauna: Is this https://openhatch.org/wiki/Ope[…]cing_Git/Students the page you were thinking of?
17:31 shauna Actually, openhatch.org/missions/git is better if you don't have a mentor there with you
17:31 The activity we do today requires us to do a little bit of repository setup in github
17:32 We're looking into making a web version of it
17:32 NicMcPhee shauna: Gotcha – thanks!

20:01 andrewlatterner Hey Alex. I'm actually working on NLTK for Open-Hatch.
20:01 alexrudnick andrewlatterner: Woo! Which bug are you looking at?
20:02 andrewlatterner Just the unseen token error. I figured that it'd be a decent way to get introduced
20:02 paulproteus alexrudnick: BTW, you should check out the new, smoother http://tasks.openhatch.org/
20:03 Also we invented a new Github training exercise for the most recent set of events.
20:03 Resulting in e.g. http://morris-2.github.io/
20:03 MagicBriBri It's a really good exercise!

20:30 there's a way to cache HTTP passwords, I think I mentioned this on the house channel the other day
20:30 not sure if that's worth mentioning instead.
