Last thursday, some local nerds joined in for the first ( and certainly not last ) HackerNews meetup in Stuttgart at CoWorking 0711.

With about 15 people present, we had the chance to listen to some really great stuff. Florian Welsch ( dividuum ) talked about a project of his called Geolua, a web-based geo-based game creator that allows writing games in lua. It was a fun talk and certainly very inspiring ( especially the debugging-functionality :-) ).

Jan gave us a chance to learn a bit about unhosted.org, a project that aims at separating data from logic in web applications with the goal to let users regain control of their data.

Marc, my co-organisator, explained how he uses Cucumber, a Ruby Testing-Framework to write test in seemingly natural language.

Seems like it worked out the way it was supposed to. Thanks everyone for being there, listening, discussing and talking. See you next time!
