Recentemente, EFF está trabalhando com TOS;DR para hospedar uma hackathon na Campus Party Brasil, no Centro de Convenções do Parque Anhembi em São Paulo, Brasil. Novidades sobre o conteúdo, inscrição e agenda estão disponíveis no site oficial do evento. Abaixo algumas fotos do evento.
Você está na Campus Party Brasil? Então mande um e-mail para o Pedro Markun email@example.com para participar de nossa hackathon.
Nossa hackathon foi desenvolvida para melhorar o TOSBack, o software livre que automaticamente monitora os termos de uso dos sites mais populares. Você pode participar submetendo novas regras (veja o guia em Português aqui) ou ajudando no re-design.
Quero agradecer especialmente ao Pedro Markun (@Markun), Guilherme Otero (@GuiOtero), Cecilia Tanaka (@Cecilia_Tanaka), Jimm Stout (@JimmStout) e Hugo Roy @HugoRoyD) por tornar esse evento possível e um sucesso.
UPDATE: For the last three days, hackers and activists in Sao Paulo attending Campus Party have been working with EFF and TOS;DR to improve the free software tool TOSBack. TOSBack is a software project spearheaded by EFF to track the changes to Terms of Service over time. It was in dire need of a revamp, and we’re happy to say that hackers at Campus Party rose to the effort.
While there’s still a lot to be done, we began the process of relaunching TOSBack over the 3 day hackathon. Here’s what we’ve done so far:
- We started implementing a Firefox OS version
- We began work on a Firefox extension
- We updated the Ruby code so that people who wanted to hack on the project could work on the most recent version
- We created a few models and controllers that were missing
- We taught lots of people in Brazil about TOSBack
- We created Portuguese and English language guides to contributing new rules
- We created a road map for what needed to happen next in developing TOSBack
The participants at Campus Party are keen to make sure this tool is available to Internet users in the future. Tarrafa Hackerspace (Florianopolis-SC) and Garoa Hacker Clube (São Paulo, SP), in collaboration with EFF, are organizing a second code sprint for next weekend during Carnival. If you would like to participate, please email Pedro Markun <firstname.lastname@example.org> to get involved.
Right now, EFF is working with TOS;DR to host a hackathon at Campus Party Brazil at the Anhembi Parque Convention Center in Sao Paulo - Brazil. Updates about the content, registration and agenda are available on the official website. Below are some photos from the event.
Are you at Campus Party Brazil? If so, please email Pedro Markun email@example.com to get involved with our hackathon.
Our hackathon is designed to improve TOSBack, free software that automatically tracks the terms of service of many popular websites. You can get involved by submitting new rules (see Portuguese guide here) or by helping with the redesign.
