Oldest extant magnetic compass,
from iron meteorite, pin on left side (now bent up) originally pointing North, the engraved figure demonstrates the variation of the length of days over the twelve month of the year (1st row June to January, 2nd row July to December). The object was used as a mobile sundial suspended on a string.

Navigation as social Internet system

Das ist einer der wichtigsten Gründe, warum die Hackerfleet tut, was sie tut.
HFOS soll Navigation ins lokale Internet auf jedem Schiff bringen, zu jedem Crewmitglied das einen Browser bedienen kann.

Den Sender packen wir lieber ins Schiff - um Nutzdaten zu versenden, wie  z.B. korrigierte Tiefenmeldungen oder Unwetterwarnungen.

Support is needed, to keep the MS Stubnitz as the great event location and working maritime monument that she is.

Damit die Stubnitz weiterhin als Veranstaltungsschiff und maritimes Denkmal erhalten bleibt, wird Unterstützung benötigt.

Hackers on a Boat
Random Hacks of Kindness - PyEdition

Lets improve it! During the EuroPython 2014, a team of 50 Volunteers will spend 3h on the MS Stralau to fix and improve software.

We need your help, to compile a long and interesting list of tasks for the developers that will join us on the tour.

We are looking for (opensource) Python 2to3-ports, necessary Bugfixes, or much wanted feature requests for any Python projects out there.
Send your suggestions to riot@hackerfleet.org - thanks!

If you don't have an idea for a task, then please share this post, so that others can submit their tasks.

If you're a conference guest, you can sign up for the tour at the info desk!

This event is powered by EuroPython2014 and organized by Hackerfleet.

HFOS growing up...


Some current updates on what we're doing:

  • We're concentrating on our first release candidate, HFOS (Hackerfleet Operating System)
  • A lot already happened, most important backend features and a lot of frontend work have been completed to a sufficient degree
  • Mostly software parts left to be done, but also a short hardware redesign

Development on cape has been on a hiatus, since we're focusing on our release software. Since Kamaelia is pretty near a complete py3k support, we'll probably merge developments into our forked repo afterwards.

The decision to host most code/resources on  github didn't turn up any ugly things, so we're probably going to deactivate much of our own hosting.

This trac will probably survive. We'll see ;)

Cheers, riot
