Picks / What the vienna.rb Team Thinks Is Worth Sharing This Week

4/6 Picks!!

In a little series on this website we’ll entertain YOU with our picks - or: what we think is worth sharing - every week. Books, articles, gems, funsies… you’re in for an eclectic mix! So, here’s for the seventh edition:

Andy:
  • How Go uses Go to build itself - I am always fascinated when a programming language can compile or interpret itself.
  • Afraid of the big nasty gem? - Ever thought about evil code in a RubyGem you use? Or how can I trust software of 3rd parties?
  • http://ascii.io/ - ascii.io is a neat tool to make command-line based screencasts, where you even can copy and paste the text.
Floor:
  • E.V.E. - E.V.E. is a Star Trek / Jarvis type computer written in Python. Run the program, and E.V.E. will activate whenever you say “okay computer,” after which you can ask it a question / command.
  • GitLab Summer of Code - GitLab (the open source alternative to GitHub) is a Google Summer of Code project.
  • PyLadies Vienna - As one of the co-organizers of PyLadies Vienna I can’t help but promote our beginners course to Python. Spread the word!
  • Raspberry Pi - Learn what other people use their Raspberry Pi for!
