@kaichanvong could you download https://www.fuze.com/ before the satrt of the workshop?
it's what ThoughWork uses to do presentations
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 11:57
erm...
That word 'Fuze' has horrible horrible connotation: "In military munitions, a fuze is the part of the device that initiates function."
Denise Yu
@deniseyu

it is also a delicious soft drink in America
Kai Chan Vong

Denise Yu

Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:00
I'll download it if Denise is at the presentation
Show off. Where was our tickets to join you? : [
Denise Yu
@deniseyu

So sad. So sad. Nm. I'll record it for you. Selfie style.

Cooking in an oven. Using Kimberley as a threats. See what you did there D.
I have this amazing video with THE Gerald Jay Sussman in it.
No worries. I'll replace it with a poem about how codebar is so down with the kids.
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:11
I hope there's a can of Fuze to drink tonight... ;- )
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
Jul 29 2015 12:12
ps. it's actually gonna be earlier where Denise is but NM
if you could get to the venue a bit earlier, around 6PM that would be great
so we could set you up for the presentation
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:13
It's 8pm over there... ?
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
Jul 29 2015 12:13
maybe more like 6:15
no, it's 8:13:41 AM
so when we are doing the presentation it will be mid afternoon
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:14
Ooops. Looking at China : p
Kriszta Matyi

New Jersey, China?
interesting
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:16
It'll make sense in a moment... perhaps...

uploading kinda slow!
OK. Back to reading out my presentation to my cat.
Will I get hugs to use this Fuze thing? My cat is meowing non-stop about it.
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:22
I guess only @deniseyu would be allowed to hit me with a can of fuze...
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:33
This is going to shock people. Do. Not. Like. Fuze.
OK. Got Fuze. What else do I need to do to set it up for tonight?
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
Jul 29 2015 12:35
that's it, thanks :)
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong

yay.
I'll delete it then! : P

@kaichanvong as much as I love hiphop, I don't think this is the place for it, most of it's themes are not particularly supportive to gender-queer, homosexual or oftentimes just women.
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:39
But Beyonce!
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 12:39
What's up with Beyonce?
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:40
Dunno. I think she's pretty down with the kids!
anyways back to preparing! =P
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 12:41
I dunno what you're talking about, but just to be clear, you do understand the point I'm making right?
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:41
Do I have to add a slide about my support for a gender agnostic society? Because I think I've got that in there!
I think that video is all about love. And how cars and the Internet super highway is the road for the love to be delivered on ;- )
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 12:43
I can't tell if you are joking or not, and that worries me.
Kai Chan Vong

And it's about Philadelphia. Not the cheese spread.

The enthusiasm is great, but please also remember that there are hundreds of people subscribed to this channel who get notified :)

Jul 29 2015 12:44
@kaichanvong put anything you feel like you want to put in it but remember it' only a 5 min talk. Also, please note that this is the official codebar gitter channel so please keep communications to appropriate topics such as tutorials and anything related to workshops

5 minutes!!!
Lightning talks should be about 10 - 15 mins
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 12:47
Not in any scenario I've seen to date.

@matyikriszta @deniseyu @KimberleyCook can someone get in touch about uncodebar as soon as possible.

We would rather spend time letting stduent code, apologies if you misunderstood us
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 12:58
Good work cutting out the rest of the sentence, which says "usually capped at 5 minutes."
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:58
Sorry if you took offense in the video! It was just a light hearted joke to ... see full context :-P
Thanks!
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 12:59
Not offended, but if no-one mentions it you don't realise and it can happen again, when there's no need.
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 12:59
What can happen again? Being chilled out about stuff?
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 13:00
No, you posting more poorly-chosen content.
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 13:01
It was just content. I didn't think it was poor. Pretty good lyrics. Interesting topic – perhaps random :P
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
Jul 29 2015 13:01
@barisbalic sure
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 13:02
@matyikriszta chatting with @KimberleyCook about it now!
@kaichanvong yeah that's why I was attempting to broaden your perspective.
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 13:02
I think I offended you. Sorry! Wasn't related to you in the slightest. I don't even know you...
My perspective is very broad
I just tend to chill out rather than sweat all the detail when we're in a chat room like this
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 13:02
I'm not offended. Dunno how many times it has to be said before you will understand it.
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta

I've offended you. Sorry!

I'm not offended mate, can't accept your apology.
Kimberley Cook

hiya, has any of you guys had to install Drush(Drupal) on a windows? (and been successful with it)
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:23
Are you using a fork of it or the version by drush-ops of drush ?
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:28
I installed it via composer
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:32
Looking at composer it's still in Alpha 1.0.0-alpha10 (2015-04-14) ... I personally wouldn't recommend using alpha software unless you're testing something for bugs or for that company. Others may disagree have other opinions. https://getcomposer.org/download/
The Drupal site recommends "You should find a link to a Windows installer there. Here is the current link (as of 28 January 2015):
https://github.com/drush-ops/drush/releases/download/6.0.0/Drush-6.0-201..."
Hope that helps you in some way! Otherwise no I haven't run a Windows install of drupal for a long time.
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:35
I used this http://drupalistasgroup.com/installing-drush-7-windows-xampp as it's one of the links recommended
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:35
Unless you're some l337 hacker I'd be very careful with pre-alphas and alphas. Betas are maybe acceptable. Release candidates the ideal thing to go for.
Ah xampp
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:36
I use wamp but it was pretty similar. been struggling with this ahah
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:36
I guess check your version of Windows? That's obvious... I know.. sorry!
"Hopefully this will help! I installed, deleted and reinstalled drush 7 about 10 times on my computer to test the above instructions I also installed it on a fresh copy of Windows 7 running XAMPP on a laptop. Other have installed it Windows 8 running Wamp. It went pretty smoothly. It took about 20 minutes." ...ekkkk
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:38
drush is downloading and unzipping modules where I want to, it just refuses to do anything else. Seems like other people's solution's not working for me
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:38
Hmm... permissions?
Do you have administrative access to that machine?
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:39
yeah yeah ive got all the access
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:39
What do you mean by refuses to do anything else? What's the actual error code you're given?
Been a while since I've used commandline on powershell or something like that :- P But maybe I can be a soundboard for your own ideas?
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:40
i can download a module but not enable it
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:43
can you get the list of modules from drush?
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:43
nope
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:44
Nope as in it lists no modules you've downloaded?
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:45
it return that i need a higher bootstrap level, but since I am c:\wamp\www\myproject\sites i don't get it
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:47
First Fuze now 'Bootstrap level'. Urgh. I hate these names. Why cant they be sweeter.
This is where I discover fuze is a zero-free sugar caffeinated beverage
so searching on the interwebs suggests other people solved the issue by making the settings.php file readable
maybe you need to be in one of the sites (site) folders?
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:51
I tried calling from within the modules and also the default folder and no chance there
some people changed localhost into 127.0.0.1 and it worked. not for me
read that it might be because drush is using a different php.ini than my drupal project
Baris Balic
@barisbalic
Jul 29 2015 14:53
@anabrownee what do you want to use Drupal for? Is there any reason it needs to run on windows and not in a VM? There are many pre-built images for vagrant/VirtualBox
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:54
i need it to run migrate from wordpress, the data I've got to import is too big for the wizard
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:55
what @barisbalic suggested sounds very sensible – sandbox/quarantining the learnings to a VM is a good idea if you're not already. That would make starting from scratch as the tutor/course leader suggested not sound so horrifically painful.
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:56
yeah I think i'll have to do that
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:56
I think mysql can export to zip using cpanel or some wysiwig/windows gui tool like that
If you're finding exporting from wordpress.. how have we moved from Drupal to Wordpress?! :P :P
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:56
It's just that the whole site is basically done, I just need the data from wordpress to import. hoped drush wouldnt be such a pain
Kai Chan Vong
@kaichanvong
Jul 29 2015 14:56
...a difficult thing!
NanaBrown
@anabrownee
Jul 29 2015 14:57
I'll get there :P
