I have attended Hackfest pune on may 5th 2012. the event was about `scripting command line dev-tools` .
the Event was as follows
- First you have to present some ideas as to what you want to build ( all ideas have to be based on command line dev-tools).
The following were the list of ideas presented.
will update this soon…
- you can either work on your idea or form a team and collaborate on other ideas if you found them interesting.
as i was not having much experience to develop command line tools so i thought of working on someone else idea and learn from them.
Jitesh Kamble who had earlier worked on a tool to check the link’s status of a html page using php (broken link checker for SEO). and he has faced some performance issue with php. then he thought of rebuilding it with new technology and he presented that idea . samyank has suggested us to use Node.js to build this app.
Installed node.js on windows 7 and learnt some basics of node and finally came up with this code to check the link status for any html webpage. ( its not complete program yet in the five hours of time we have come up with this solution . it only works for Absolute paths in the webpage.) . you can download the code here blf.js.
Thanks samyank for introducing me to node.js and thanks nokeya for ubuntu installation help.
Later on a weekend i have written a small node.js program to read xml sitemap of couple of E-commerce store’s and get the book’s isbn numbers. and store them on mongodb. (just the numbers). if any one needs the dump of the list of all the ISBN number’s of books sold on Indian E commerce stores you can download them here. looks like they are around (1.2 crores of book titles )
Hackfest #2 is planned for june 23. you all are welcome lets hack something
It’s finally here. and for those who don’t know OpenVBX its a open source web phone system created by Twilio. It allows you to create your business phone system using a simple drag and drop approach. Accompanied by its plugin repository, it has become a very successful and hacker friendly for people to come out with very innovative integrations. You can find some videos here:
You want A/B testing of your call flows, we got you covered. You want call routing, that’s there too. What about CRM integration? Absolutely yes. You can find these and a lot more plugins at the Plugin Repository, Because it is such a useful system and it is open source, other telephony guys have also provided their own flavours, the most famous of which is TropoVBX
some time back in may june of 2010 i was working on a app called talkifi, so for that i was hacking openvbx and trying to make it work with http://www.kookoo.in/ due to time constraint and all i thought of using some one’s help in building openvbx for kookoo i have posted the project on stalkninja (StalkNinja ). luckely i found this amazing guy from IIT Chennai Mr.Janardhan a first year student who could complete the task. You can find the project details here, http://stalkninja.com/
As i got busy with other things and didn’t find time to devote on this project I have decided to give the code to KooKoo so others can build on top of it. kookoo team have hosted it on GitHub you can download the code here.
Steps to get started:
- Download code
- Host it on your PHP enabled web server
- Open the site in your browser
- Login as email@example.com and password test123
- Create your flow and paste the URL of the flow in your KooKoo settings page.
- Call your KooKoo number and listen to your flow.
So go ahead, download KooKooVBX and use it to build your own innovative cloud business phone systems. Since it is all in PHP, you are free to create/hack your own system and resell it on top of KooKoo which is kind of robust easy to scale platform and spread across 8 states as of now.
A truly great relationship between 2 people can only exist on basis of giving freedom to each other and never ever on commitments made to each other — RGV
I don’t know where i am eligible to write this post as but lately when i look at some of the failed relationships of my frineds i thouht i would like to share my opinion about relationships and commitments
its perfectly fine for a people to fall in Love and become crazy over it, you and i cant help it, but the real problem comes when they commit to each other at a very early stage. usually any guy or a girl tries to show up there best or good part of them in the beggninning of any relationship may be friendship or lovers or for that matter even in new job this usually stays for may be first 6 months or 1 year depending on the person so obiviously when they are trying to show there best part these times relationships go fine . but the real person comes out only at the time of difficult situation or critical times and usually it takes little long time to observe the guy’s or girls behiour in these times. by this time people might have allready been in a commited relationship then the bad time starts and compromises begeins if both the guys are meature enough of understand each others problem and comprimise then it’s fine happy story otherwise relationship breaks and they wil have terreble time.
so my only advice is Don’t commit to a person early. be friends for some time obeserve in happy and tough times and see if he is right one for you and then make a decesion. i know its difficult for any indian girl to hangout with a guy and not been in a relation but times are chaning people are becoming more open.
please share your perspective about this in the comments below.
In india Missed calls are very popular. we tent to have some preconsived notions and try to communacte it to other people with out even wasting a penny (just a missed call)
