JetPack offline and a JetHack idea.

I will be leading a JetPack session during OpenCamp in Sofia. This will be regular session with slides, code examples and some quick hacks, but I think this approach is some kind of wrong.

I am thinking about something like a Bootcamp or HackCamp where we gather together Java script programmers, Jquery meetupers, CSS and HTML writers, some hackers and some ordinary people and we can start talking and hacking using JetPack – that will be really cool and useful approach – bring your computer NOR your head and let’s start the engine.

Interested? Join “the evil” Facebook group now and let’s polish the idea together.

Talking about JetPack offline I will be writing a big & fat article in our PC Magazine local edition to start finding a people that can be interested in such hack activities.

3 – Sharing is caring


You can share your code with others via some kind of standard libraries. Write the code and let’s other re-use it within their applications.
