Talking at the first XMPPUK Event – March 2013

By , Wednesday 13th March 2013 8:37 pm

We had the inaugural XMPP/realtime meetup held at Mozilla London on the 13th March which was sponsored by my employer Surevine.

At Surevine we believe that XMPP has a very important place in the future of the web and this goes hand-in-hand with realtime technologies too which is why we’ve started this meetup which will hopefully grow into its own entity.

I’ve written a blog post up on the Surevine website about the event which I suggest you read if you are interested. This also contains details about finding out more about the event and where to get information on future planned events too.

Originally seen on http://awesome-wildlife.blogspot.co.uk/2009/12/aardvark.html

I’ve spent most of the day writing a new demo system for XMPP-FTW and despite it looking ugly as sin (I am no god with design) I’m quite pleased with how it works, so I thought I’d write up a little piece about it…

Update a buddycloud channel when events take place on your github repository

As of this evening it is now possible to have Github post to a buddycloud channel when a push is made to a repository. This allows you to get (amost) real-time repository change information in your buddycloud channels.

Background

I’ve talked about work I’ve done with buddycloud before, but briefly buddycloud is an exciting new federated social network built upon open-source and open-standards. The buddycloud team has recently come back from San Francisco where they were involved with Mozilla’s WebFWD programme getting some great mentoring and guidance from luminaries in their fields. I don’t think I need to really introduce github, they are awesome too :)

If you’re not aware of them github has a set of service hooks that as a repository owner/admin you can utilise in order to push event information (be it commits, pushes, pull requests, branching, etc) to a 3rd party service. There’s a whole set of these services that you can already push to from Jenkins CI right through to Yammer, and now buddycloud!

If you have a service that you’d like to push event information to then github make the code available. All you have to do is fork the service-services repository, knock up some ruby code and submit a pull request. Once it’s been accepted you can then setup github to push information to your favourite information system each time something happens to your repository.
