Austen Ito will be talking about how Kitchensurfing ships code in pairs. Whether you practice formal code reviews, pull requests, or don’t review at all, pair programming can help you ship better software.

Some topics that will be covered are:

  • An introduction to pair programming
  • Different styles of pairing
  • Our setup
  • Benefits of pairing
  • Strategies for success
  • Arguments against pair programming

When: Thursday, March 13, 2014 7:00pm

Where: HI Capacity (in the Box Jelly), 307a Kamani Street Honolulu, 96813. (Please park on Ward Ave, Kamani street, or surrounding street parking).

For our third monthly meetup, we’ll be asking the question, “What’s your workflow?” This discussion was sparked by the a fellow HiCapacity member (fellow capacitor?). He noticed that whenever he was working with someone at a hackathon or Startup Weekend, another developer always had some sort of shortcut that he’d never seen before. Whether it was a simple keystroke that would save him half a second or a full framework that made building webpages simpler, there was always something to learn. So let’s go over what tools you use to work your craft. Let’s talk about specifics here. What’s your IDE? What plugins do you run? What extra tools do you use to make thing easier for you? We can even talk about what keystrokes save you that extra half second. Because we know even half a second here and there help out tremendously over time.

Apart from tools, we can also discuss workflow hacks that make building applications smoother. Let’s talk about how you set up your directory structure to make your intent clearer, how you arrange icons on your desktop to keep the things within your view, we can even go over proper hardware setups! Two monitors? Three monitors? Specific type of keyboard you really like that everyone should use? Mouse or touchpad?

As with most of our discussions, please come prepared to talk and be engaged. Let’s make sure we have a lively discussion going because the more people are involved the more tips we can share. You never know, maybe that one thing you thought everyone knew, is something nobody bothered to think about.

Hello everyone! We will be doing our second condutive paint workshop! If you want to see what we did at the first one check out our photos on Facebook here. This time around we will be doing the same house again so if you attended the first one this may not be as interesting for you. But you’re still welcome to join us again if you like!

Interested in learning about simple circuits? Enjoy making things light up? Join us for our conductive paint workshop!

This is a simple project where art meets electronics. We’ll be decorating and designing paper houses and lighting them up using conductive paint! No wires or soldering involved here!

In addition, Bob will be doing a little electronics 101 to explain how the circuit works and why things work the way they do. From there you can light up any mini project of your own using conductive paint!

We’ve done a couple sample houses. Check them out here:

For this workshop we will be providing a kit with all the pieces necessary to make one of these houses. The fee for the workshop is $5 to cover the cost of the parts in the kit. We will also provide Xacto knives, scissors, and markers to cut out and decorate your houses. However, we may not have enough to go around at once so if you want to bring your own Xacto knives and markers feel free to do so.

NOTE: Please bring $5 in exact change to the workshop for the kit! We are not accepting payment online this time.
