Hi Guys, sorry I’ve ignored mentions this week. It’s all been a little hectic. I’m away this weekend but I’ll have a look at the PRs when I get back if they havent’ already been hit.
A red bubble store would be ace. I’d do it, but it sounds a lot like @tomlane volunteered about 17 hours ago ;).

How much work is it? If its an easy thing to do I don't mind setting it up

@spikeheap how do you deal with any money stuff?
Tom Lane

@spikeheap I would do it. But it kinda involves money. Red tape and stuff. Have we got a paypal account we can use for it?
I mentioned it to a couple of people who thought it would be a good idea that we could put the money we raise in to future events and the like.
Marcus Noble

Yeah, I was thinking the same (about putting money towards future events)

That better be labeled as "retro"
Have you created a new account?
Tom Lane

Not yet, just playing with the designer at the moment
Marcus Noble

Hey @tomlane, @AverageMarcus we don’t have an approach to money yet… so far we have sourced sponsorship for individual events and ended up at £0. With the red bubble things are we expecting it to cost money or generate money?
I don’t mind managing the money side of things – can I be added to the red bubble thing?
On an unrelated note: designs for the RailsBridge:
For swag from new bambbo

They’re going to look at adding the JSOxford logo to the laptop too :)
Also, if we’re knocking up merch it might be easier to start with the basic logo from http://benjaminbenben.com/logo-hacks/jsox.html because it’s all yellow

Hi @spikeheap from what I saw earlier it seems to be that we would earn X% from each sale of an item. After a certain amount is earned (~£13) either a cheque is sent or it can be paid to a paypal account.

We could set up a JSOxford paypal account

A company called JScrambler just approached on linked in, they want to sponsor JSOX

How'd they hear about it?
Looking on their site they don't seem to be UK based at all
Peter West

No idea, I'll ask
Tom Lane
@tomlane
May 29 2015 19:59
So its DRM for javascript src?
Peter West
@peterjwest
May 29 2015 20:00
well that's the idea, afaik it doesn't really work
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
May 29 2015 20:01
Why doesn't it work?
Peter West
@peterjwest
May 29 2015 20:02
Because the source code is still public, you can always reverse engineer it
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
May 29 2015 20:04
I guess. But surely for a sizeable application there's only so far you'd get without proper context of what the code is doing?
Peter West
@peterjwest
May 29 2015 20:07
You can always run it to see what it does
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
May 29 2015 20:08
I guess

I think one of you should do a talk about how effective it is to scramble JS code ... :wink2:
Peter West
@peterjwest
May 29 2015 20:10
I'd be interested to see how effective it is, but their source is probably scrambled
Marcus Noble
@AverageMarcus
May 29 2015 20:11
well if you can work it out then it's not very good
Seems I good test
Peter West

Here's an example of it http://jsfiddle.net/JScrambler/5ujp3/

looks like they encode your script into a string, and then use a load of obscure operations to decode and run it
Peter West
@peterjwest
May 29 2015 20:52
the important question is: do you think they'd still sponsor us if we crack their product?
