Event-based interfaces for testability — ElectronVector - Test-First Embedded Software
Event-based interfaces for testability
January 30, 2018
Unit testing is great for verifying the behavior of individual modules, but how do you put those modules together in a way that makes things testable?

One of the most useful ways I've found to do this is to think about the system in terms of events.

One of the biggest challenges you'll face when trying to unit test individual modules is if your modules are tightly coupled.

Modules interact with each other through function calls. But function call interfaces have a way of getting out of hand.

You start with a single call and then you add more and more calls between modules. At a certain point, with all these function calls, your modules are tightly coupled. The behavior of each of the modules is highly dependent on the other, and the interface between the modules make them hard to unit test individually.

Using events in the interfaces between your modules can help you decouple them -- making them simpler and easier to unit test and easier to unit test.

The In-Person Event Handbook
getting your open source project ready for new contributors

It seems like every day there’s another workshop, hackathon or sprint, where open source projects are invited to work with new contributors. At OpenHatch, we’ve run plenty of these events ourselves! We’ve found that to get the most out of an event, it’s important to plan ahead. Explaining your goals, identifying appropriate tasks, and testing your project setup, are all vital to making good progress - and having a good time. These changes have greatly improved our experiences, and we think they’re worth the (significant) effort.

We’ve created the following guide to help open source projects get ready for events. We’ve used our own project - the web app - as an example below. At the bottom of the page, you can find Checklists. These condense the advice given in this handbook, and can help you track your progress as you prepare your project.

Welcome to the Plastic Hacker Space Festival! - Hacker Space Festival
The conference looks cool, at least according to google translate, but the poster annoys me. I emailed them to ask if they would change it... we'll see.

Free Culture Forum: Organization and Action

Barcelona 29th October - 1st November 2009

There is a need, recognized for several worldwide voices, of an international space to build and coordinate a global frame and common agenda for the free culture and knowledge issues; the Free Culture Forum of Barcelona aims to create such space

The Free Culture Forum will gather under the same roof the main organizations and active voices in the Free Culture and knowledge World; a meeting point to sit and work together searching answers for the paradigm shift.

A space to drawing up proposals to present the position of the civil society before the Intellectual Property debate and its impact on access to knowledge, on creation, distribution of art and culture.
