The Guelph Seven

Whatever you're doing, it's not as important (or awesome) as going to The Guelph Seven's website and checking out what we're up to. If you catch this before March 5th-11th, you'll get to meet our team. If you find it during that period, you'll get fresh-off-the-press news about the cool stuff we're making and how we're doing it, and if you show up late, you'll get the whole experience laid out like a beautiful collage of creation. Don't miss it - check it out.

Follow our twitter, while you're at it.

also, beards

Robyn contributes: an app that is basically phpmyadmin for rails; it generates a migration based upon something you build with a gui, as you would in phpmyadmin

.. probably even possible to hook phpmyadmin up to the existing migration-generation code somehow..


also, sensible, could generate scaffolds while it's at it

goooooooooo AUTOMATE

reconfigurable chess game

ie: say "board dimensions are now x by y, knights now move the following way, there's now 3 knights (placed at the following spots), and no more rooks"

and then play a game

back to the object-code thinger

once you read code into a compiler as an abstract syntax tree with a symbol table, it's in a really neat state. It's independent of language semantics or syntax. (or, it can be)

ideas for what to do with it in that state:

code style converter (for example, braces and indentation)

code generator (convert your C to python, your python to java, etc.)

diagram generator (spit out meaningful diagrams of the structure of the code)

more and more I'm thinking this is the utility I want. I wonder if this is pretty much what something like Doxygen is capable of.

zoomable document editor thing

music: all the instruments of today utilized in full force as a descriptive measure of the wonders of the earth

much as gershwin did a city, and prokofiev did peter and the wolf, we could have several things! A city album, a countryside album, a mountain album, a train album, an ocean album, a small town album, a farm album, a castle album - just, music inspired by these things.

Especially a city; gershwin had a good idea there.

Not my idea but it's good to remember

If you have a text editor, you should be able to do a search/replace only within a selected piece of text.

Thanks, Hoyle.
