@alexanderkustov
Thanks @creature he's got it

@creature
London coaches coming tonight: do any of you have a laptop that a student could use?
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
Yeah @creature of course...

What is the process for converting the .md files into HTML content? Thanks!
Shahmir Javaid
@shahmirj
@njacobs5074 there are many markdown converted libraries
what language are you after?
Nick Jacobs
@njacobs5074
Ah no, I meant the codebar tutorials.
So far as I can tell they're generated from the README.md files, no?
Shahmir Javaid
@shahmirj
can you point me to a link, I am not a 100% sure
Nick Jacobs
@njacobs5074
I'm guessing there's a script that converts the README.md into the corresponding HTML files served up on tutorials.codebar.io.
Shahmir Javaid
@shahmirj
I can't see anywhere it converts the .md files into html. Im sure there is a build step somewhere.

@njacobs5074 AFAIK (and have come to unthinkingly rely on!) this is done automatically. The existing tutorials exist as .md files, and any pull requests are made to those .md files, with no further steps required.

In case it's of interest, to view .md files as I'm editing them, I use a mix of viewing the file on the github site, and plug-ins for Notepad++ and WebStorm.

Alex Pounds
@creature
@njacobs5074 Yep, @jkbits1 is correct! It's all automatic. The tutorials are basically a Jekyll install, served via Github pages. So you should be OK to preview your work in any Markdown viewer, and send a pull request without any generated HTML.

Thanks, @jkbits1 and @creature. That makes it easy. Shiny! :sparkles:

Guys, I might be slightly late this evening. I'll be there sometime around 7pm.
Alex Pounds
@creature
@jnardiello: Is that prior to 7PM or just after 7PM? :) The former’s perfect, the latter makes pairing more difficult...
Jacopo Nardiello
@jnardiello
The central line was broken, I arrived late at the office, which means I'll leave from Old street at 6.15/6.20pm.
@creature Time to get to the location, so I'd say slightly before 7pm
I'm just saying it in advance so that you know. Don't really mean to complicate things further.
Alex Pounds
@creature
It’s not a problem, don’t worry. :) But we can only pair students up with coaches who are in the room. We often have students who show up a little late too, so you could always work with them.
Jacopo Nardiello
@jnardiello
fair enough. I'll see you there ;)
Alex Pounds
@creature
Quick sanity check: this week’s invite looked OK, right? The invite link was present & worked OK?
Jacopo Nardiello
@jnardiello
It did (for me at least)
Alex Pounds
@creature
@jnardiello Thanks. :) Someone emailed to say they couldn’t see the link and I got worried.
Ben Lovell
@benlovell
yep, fine here too!
Jon Kelly
@jkbits1
The link is there and works fine :smile: . It is a little more vertical and thinner than usual, perhaps that's what led to the feedback. We are giving the company logo more height this week, so maybe it's stretched it a little.
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
hey @creature those lighting talks usually come with slides, right?
Despo Pentara
@despo
@knuxus no, slides are optional
Alex Pounds
@creature
@knuxus You can have slides if you want them, but I’d keep them to a minimum as 5 minutes isn’t very long. If you prefer no slides, that’s fine too. :)
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
=)
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
hey @creature , i have 5 slides that can be converted into a lighting talk about focus
and what it means for developers
or is there anyone else presenting this wednesday?
Alex Pounds
@creature
There's no presentation scheduled for this Wednesday, but I'm not sure we've got an AV system either. We could definitely put you down for 2 weeks time, though?
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
sure
all up for it
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
we've had presentations at shutl before so I'm sure it could be sorted out
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
all yours to decide, i can do it wednesday or next week..
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
but whenever is convenient for you @knuxus
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
i like surprises but its better to be expected
so i leave the choice up to those who organize this
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
ok @knuxus, can we do this Wednesday then?
we are eager to restart the talks, a lot of students liked them
Nikesh Ashar
@nikeshashar
are codebars only on Wednesdays?
Alex Pounds
@creature
@nikeshashar In London we hold them weekly on Wednesdays, and occasionally have one-day events at the weekend throughout the year. I think Brighton holds theirs every 2 weeks on Tuesdays. I’m not sure about Cambridge.
If you sign up on the website you can join the mailing list for the chapter closest to you, and you’ll get email invites to each event.
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
Okay @matyikriszta , i'll send you a preview of slides if you wish during tommorow...
Kriszta Matyi
@matyikriszta
@knuxus, excellent, thanks for doing it!
Alexander Kustov
@alexanderkustov
my pleasure
