I think Jupyter notebook is a good choice :)

I would like to learn how to set up my own server.

As I mentioned previously, I'd like to improve my FIJI macro scripts. I'm using Jython right now but it'd be nice to get a little familiarity with JAVA. Also I'm up for PERL if anyone else is interested.
But must warn you, I know absolutely fish-all about PERL.

For me, I'm game for Python basics or PERL

But, any other topic is also fine for me :-)

WebServer! :-D Something to finally make use of my 20TB storage capacity at
home! :-D (Needless to say I want it to have a good security too!)

Alright @GalacticAC, I'm looking forward to discuss setting up a server with you. With a little luck @greatfireball will join us, he has a lot of experience in this area. As far as I see, this topic might not be of broader interest to other participants so we can start with another topic. My suggestion is a general discussion about programming languages, which one to choose, how to get started, pitfalls...
Then we can have a little hands on in python, perl, java or any other language (how about Shakespeare, Whitespace or Brainf**k) 😃

Is anyone unhappy with this solution.

Thx iimog! I am looking forward to this sideproject. Shall we meet maybe before/after or at another day for this and I bring a six-pack of club-mate? (Or beer,...)

Regarding Programing: I would suggest "R" since it is a programing language, I can use it, it is free and it can also do statistics. Otherwise I am happy with anything you can teach us!

Cool!!! Could we try Brainf--k? or Ook?!

You seriously wanne program in something like brainfuck? Okay, way not...it looks unnecessarly convoluted, but hey...incrementing one number at a time....sounds like making a pocket calculator in this language is a hell lot harder then in any other language I ever tried!

on the otherhand...i could probably as easily write a program which can add these commands after each other and see if it is viable program! Anyone having a Turing-Oracle at hand? :-D

Nice! Lets see what we can learn from each other. Concerning your server: an extra session with mate or beer sounds also very good.

Nice meeting yesterday, we had

  • discussion about setting up a raspberry pi with owncloud
  • coding challenge (smallest common multiple), solved in R and perl
  • general discussions about programming languages, hacking and quantum computers

For all of you who are interested, I would like to upload my "R" code for this challange and pose another one too. Can I do this somewhere here?

Last time we had to find the smallest commone multiple of numbers within the range of 1 to 9 (spelled 1:9 in "R" :-D). My challange would be two fold:

  1. Write a script which will give back the smallest common multiple of any other given list of numbers (like 1:20 or 5:12 or n:m).
  2. Write a script which will do what we did last time with reducing requirments: if you have a list like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, you do not actually check 2, 3, 4 and 6 for that matter, because they are already contained in the 8 and 9, since primes are never multiples (zitation needed), you would also need those too. Case in point: if you are give a list like 1:30, 5:20 or n:m, could you find a script which will reduce the list to only those numbers you absolutly need to check? in case of 1:30 for example, 5, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 need to go too!

Edit: Bought my first rasberry pi 2, but couldnt find the rasberry zero...they all sold them or demand 20+ euros for it!

Sure, feel free to upload your file into this directory:
https://github.com/HackyHour/Wuerzburg/tree/master/files/HackyHour_03

You could also edit the README.md file to contain the description of the challenge and your new challenges.

The Rasberry Zero is completly sold out....they can not produce them fast enough!

@GalacticAC That's great! 👍
I just wanted to point out that it looks more like the Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ than the Pi 2. But I guess that it should be more than enough for our needs. However, if you paid as much as a Pi 2, you might want to check out the listing ;)

I'm really looking forward to the next hackyhour 😀

yes, I saw that for 6 euros more you can gtet the Rasberry Pi 2, but I think the B+ will be enough for our purposes. I also bought 2 new micro SD cards (16gb) of class 10. I noticed that my class 4 is making the OS (Noob) very slugish!

As such, I would recommend that anyone who wants to try out an OS should bring a prepared micro SD, cause the process of setting it up took some time. We might set up a number of them and simply swap cards.

@iimog: could you bring a suitable OS for the OwnCloud server? It can be as small as possible, as long as we can work easily with it. I think the destok surface is causing the system to be very small, so one with a command line interface might be better!

@GalacticAC Sounds like a great idea. 👍

I would suggest that we continue our discussion in the thread created by @iimog for our next meeting, since this discussion has been tagged as closed and others may not be following it 😉
