Oh, we'll have awesome emotigifs(tm?) and will certainly look at baking Hubot right in.

Thanks for your feebdack.

To communicate with the EV3 over bluetooth you don't need to make any modifications to the EV3 software at all so that could be a possibility although you'll need to check the rule book I suspect.

When I was in FTC a few years ago, "stock software" referred to both the software on the laptop and the software on the robot. In particular, I recall Linux on the laptop wasn't a supported OS for any of the allowed programming environments (LabView and RobotC).

Right, what I mean is that they can only run programs (and communicate with the robot) in the Lego Mindstorms drag and drop language (which is actually decent). If we could have someone with an Xbox controller in the bleachers somewhere that would be cheating.

Ah that's really interesting, I've added it to the bottom of the post as a note.

The code for the importer is here: https://github.com/andrew/module_import

It's early days but could be quite an interesting way to handle dependencies in ruby.

I've organized a Mini Nodecopter event in London and another is on this weekend in Bath, UK. They are, in my experience, some of the most exciting hackdays I've been too, bringing software and hardware hacking together to command flying robots!

I’d prefer a more neutral location personally, otherwise you may end up making an event that restricts who can attend based on their religious views.

No religion forbids entry into another house of worship. As long as no one preaches or condemns anyone else then there is no harm.

If your place of work instilled a prayer room where all faiths were allowed to use it I'm sure you wouldn't quit your job or refuse entry into the building.

It would be great to see these vendored gems individually released for use in other projects: https://github.com/discourse/core/tree/master/vendor/gems

on the cards, message bus really is awesome, I plan to blog about it. can you put a request on meta for this? Also I would like to release the "general consumption" gems as MIT

I've thrown together a little script for checking your github repos for out of date rails apps: https://gist.github.com/4492021

Should come in handy today.
