Web Devs: HelpSGF Hack Night
February 6 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm CST
This month we will be hosting a hack night to work on the Help SGF app, which is a Hack 4 Good project. The app was recently overhauled to run on top of the Xamarin.Forms platform from Ionic, which it was first built on.
It has been “released” on both Google Play and the App Store but still has a lot of refining to do. One of the big ticket items is to get the Android build spiffed up – the UI is in need of some TLC.
More about the project can be seen on the Hack 4 Good site
For the first hour of the night we will dedicate time to those who have not been introduced to the project. There will be a couple of devs on hand to help anyone setup the the project on their machine and ensure that a clean build is achieved. For those who have the project already running, you can use this time to start hacking.
From there we will continue working on GitHub tasks and anything else that might come up. The structure will intentionally remain loose aside from the first hour of dedicated setup time for newcomers to the project.
Installations instructions are located on the Hack 4 Good site, so if you have the time before hand to get up and running, please do so. At the very least, please have Visual Studio installed with the Xamarin tools. If you are able to create a new Xamarin.Forms application in Visual Studio and run it – then you will be in really good shape to build the Help SGF App.
If there are any questions before hand please join the Hack 4 Good Slack and post them in the #helpsgf channel.
Pizza will be provided. And some booze, but still BYOB too 🙂
