Open Agile V @php_peru participation

@php_peru had highly voted for sessions in the recent Open Agile V held in Lima, Peru. Our Git/Github sessions harvested a full classroom and the idea was to lay the foundation for open source collaboration.
The attendance to the Agile Event was 700, there were 30+ sessions held and there was a lot of volunteer effort going on with the event. As a group we entered a dojo session and were the only group who finished the kata just in time for the session and posted it on our github account the same day. We give away t-shirt, won some from others, answered several questions, and encouraged people to think community and develop. Here are some images of our participation:

Thanks for supporting us!

Tired of google feedburner not being able to cut your Github My Feed?

I often wanted to keep track of feeds not from the github dashboard but right from my email.
I wanted to follow every movement from lsmith, Stof, Seldaek, Ornicar, fabpot, et al. wait no longer!
Now you can! Just head to
and cut a feed with the url from github dashboard:

Now don’t miss any movement from anyone! And remember we stand on the shoulder of giants!

Sismo Github Exploring

Today I was wondering how do i create a sismo notifier that can interface an API. I have mapped a quick diagram of sismo objects and is shown here:

The Notifier object is set actually within the configuration passed to sismo which is basically an include file returning project objects.
So the notifier is actually set within the project object. However looking through github I was surprised to find more notifiers on the history of network as shown in this picture:

I found therefore someone else has worked on a twitter and a mail notifier. These of course as I said above are set per project configured within the configuration sismo file in each project folder if we are using sismoFinder.

Now everything is pointing to the need to create an app dashboard that can receive the json payloads from sismo and could mark certain merge requests within a self-hosted github like environment. I have found several tools like gitlabhq which is open source however it is coded in ruby, another was gerrit as other posts attest but they are in java and are hard to configure and explode on my face when i want to use them on my local box because they cannot conceive a world without authentication.

So I am still thinking on this app. If you have ideas please let me know. Thanks!

Git Achievements

Whether you are starting with or are in a more advanced level. This is for you.
You can setup a github page showing your achievements. This script will count your command occurrences, will push modifications to an html page and award you achievements upon command issuing on cli prompt.

This is an interesting way to learn!
